Wonder Girls Cover of True Colors Is Truly Bad

Why is MTV and General Motors / Chevy promoting JYP Entertainment anyway?

They have had one scandal after another.

This company placed 5 very young female performers (two of whom dropped out of high school to pursue this company's dream of riches in the USA) in FIRETRAPS in order to save a little money. They have been fined heavily for this and apprently this company still hasn't learned its lesson:

Here is the NY City Department of Buildings web page about this company:


Indeed, this is now the 3rd scandal in NY by JYPE. Here are the previous 2, which shocked Koreans and which became one of the biggest stories of 2010:



You can also google:*Wonder Girls Ill-treated Korea Herald* or *JYP admits Wonder Girls Lack Insurance Korea Herald*

Based on the above 3 articles, by one of Korea's most respected news sources, you can see that GM is apparently financially supporting a company that is quite morally and legally challenged.

What especially bothers me is that this company has violated US laws. It KEEPS violating building codes and it seems as if this company may have broken US immigration laws. This was a big issue among Korean netizens in 2010. Many people wanted to know why they had to follow US visa laws but the president of JYPE could admit that what their company had done was "illegal."

Frankly, I am convinced that this Korean company, like many "K-pop" companies, needs to clean up its act before it comes to America.

I do not believe that American companies should condone this type of treatment of young, female Asian performers and I do not
think they should financially support companies which chronically break US laws.

I think it is disgusting that GM would help a company that treats its performers this way and that simply does not seem to care about NY City law.

If you need background on how corrupt these K-pop companies are, you can google: K-pop slave contracts, K-pop plagiarism, K-pop payola. Park Jin Young was found guilty of plagiarism earlier this year. Yes, that is "JYP." You go GM, you go Chrysler. Nice companies you support.
