Following that news, YG Entertainment stocks took another hit. On 12 June, YG Entertainment’s stocks were valued at 31,950 KRW which Soompi reported as a 4.05% drop from the previous day.

The “Big 3” agency faced a decline in stocks in 2019, amid a slew of scandals.

On 12 June, the company’s market capitalisation fell to 581.4 billion KRW from 834.7 billion KRW in January.

Allegations that founder Yang Hyun-Suk was involved in prostitution mediation caused YG shares to drop.

iKON finally achieved a breakthrough with their megahit ‘Love Scenario’ after debuting in 2015, earning B.I the songwriter of the year award at the 2018 Melon Music Awards.

B.I (whose real name is Kim Han Bin) has over 50 copyrighted songwriting credits through the Korea Music Copyright Association.

He became a full member earlier in the year. B.I was also recently featured in labelmate Lee Hi’s long-awaited comeback single, ‘No One’.

B.I confessed that he considered purchasing the drugs but denied taking them, according to his statement on Instagram.

“I’m deeply sorry for causing a controversy over my inappropriate behavior,” he wrote, according to The Korea Herald . “It’s true that I had interest in something to rely on which I shouldn’t have at one point when I was having a hard time. But I was too scared and worried to follow through.” /TISGFollow us on Social Media
