Yes, yes, do hashtag this #GiveUsKpop. ^_^;
But- for a legit explanation !
" Yes people, UMG IS technically taking Korean Music away from us. And yes, they have the right to take down music and music videos. But, just because they’re taking down music videos, doesn’t mean that they want to restrict Kpop to the people of the Republic of Korea only. UMG didn’t release an official statement yet, so let’s not assume that they hate the Hallyu Wave. (When you assume, you make an ass out of U&ME.). Let’s not assume that they hate the Hallyu Wave. Maybe they do, maybe they don’t, but we don’t know that. So, just keep your mind neutral to their thoughts.
Hey, they wouldn’t be the Universal Music Group if they disliked any type of music culture, right? And apparently, they are blocking these videos for awhile not forever. They wanted to see how many Koreans actually watch KPOP videos, without the International fans’ views affecting it.
Apparently they might be doing this for another reason.
"It’s because most of CUBE’s artists are signed with Universal Music Group who has the publishing rights for these artists worldwide except Korea.
The videos are available on youtube on for example 4minute’s vevo account which is handled by UMG. International fans are supposed to watch them there so that UMG are the ones getting paid by youtube for the views.”
"Apparently UMG is doing it because 4minute (and I assume others?) are signed to them worldwide. They blocked the videos to everyone but Koreans as they want international fans to watch their vids on the vevo accounts. Basically, it’s because of money."
In the first quote, its saying that they have the publishing rights for the artists. And yes, 4minute has VEVO and their videos are still there. They want the International fans to watch the videos there, so they can earn money. Sure, what UMG is doing sounds racist, but if you were to dig deeper, and if the things I quoted above were right, its all marketing strategies. That’s how companies are, they do everything they can to earn the money. No matter how mean or corrupt sounding it is. That’s the evil side of business for you.
In my opinion, I don’t think its racist, really. If UMG took down the videos for marketing reasons it seems absolutely reasonable.
We don’t know much information about these matters, other than the evidence of the videos being taken down, but we shouldn’t jump into conclusions that much. What is this, the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics Track and Field Long Jump event? But for the time being, let’s support our let’s support our artists the best that we can.
I’m not saying your opinion is wrong, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But, don’t jump into conclusions that do not seem reasonable. Would a huge company really hate a strong cultural wave that could bring them tons of cash? “
explanation taken from someone else, credits go to him.
But I don’t know.
If they block the videos forever, I’m gonna make a riot. Who’s in?
Alright,listen up babys.
Some of you have been going to the extent of calling Youngjae a betrayer and shit,and fucker just because of a single mv and I’m really disappointed.
Babys are supposed to be one of those beautiful fandoms who love their idols,not bash them. I simply cannot understand this situation as some babys even approached Youngjae roleplayers, bashing them as well.
THIS ACTING,FOR GOD’S SAKE! Implant that in your mind, okay?
I’m tired roaming through twitter and tumblr and
all i see are people bashing youngjae, i don’t understand.
But please,remember: If his acting as a “betrayer” was enough to fool you, he is a professional actor.
P/S:For now, please stop all your shits.You’re gonna hurt the real Youngjae if this goes on.
