YG Life Update: Apology to the victim and his family (110603)

Posted June 3, 2011 by


Translation: “I (we) apologize deeply to the family members of the one who departed due to an unfortunate accident and pray that he may rest in peace.”

The update yesterday about the accident was edited and it only shows now the part regarding 2NE1’s new song. I guess the text above is in replacement of the long and detailed explanation YG posted, which some netizens criticized.

News article:

“Daesung, even if i were you, that situation would have been hard to avoid.”

This is what Yang Hyunsuk of YG Entertainment put up on the company blog on June 2nd. Is this really for Daesung’s good?

Daesung was involved in a fatal car accident.

But, based on his interviews and his blog, YG Entertainment’s Yang Hyunsuk seems to be only interested in protecting Daesung.

One netizen stated, “You shouldn’t use people’s emotions on matters such as fatal incidents. Rather, accurate circumstances should be found and just punishments should be made. This is mandatory, considering the deceased, and there are many people in the world who didnt mean to be in an accident,” criticizing the way YG is responding to this accident.

Another netizen stated, “It is only humane that you come out, apologize, ask for forgiveness, and visit the deceased’s family,” asking Daesung to come out of his room and sincerely apologize to the deceased and the deceased’s family. (Note: This article was posted before Daesung visited yesterday.)

Other netizens stated, “The media is going faster than the police; reports should be made after police makes accurate investigations and decisions.”
