K-Pop fans may be familiar with the “Big 4” entertainment companies—SM Entertainment, YG Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, and HYBE. Each one has a popular stereotype attached to it. For example, people say that SM Entertainment prioritizes visuals, while YG Entertainment places more importance on artistic freedom.
Naturally, it doesn’t apply to everyone, but it continues to be a widespread belief.
It may be because of YG Entertainment’s image that iKON‘s Yunhyeong, an artist under it, jokingly implied that he would have loved to join a different agency instead!
In a recent TikTok video, he took a test to see which Big 4 agency he looks like he belongs to. He waited with bated breath to see what he’d receive.
Well, the test turned out to be extremely accurate because it immediately identified him as being from YG Entertainment! Unfortunately, he didn’t like the result. He jokingly sighed deeply as he dropped his head in disappointment.
He decided to try it one more time. This time he got…SM Entertainment! The moment he saw the result, he screamed in excitement.
Clearly, Yunhyeong wasn’t playing when he made that subtle diss at YG Entertainment. He may have wanted to look like his face is SM’s type, but fans would agree that he doesn’t lose out in the looks department!
This isn’t the first time a K-Pop idol from YG Entertainment wished he had an “SM face.” Check out what WINNER‘s Mino had to say about it in the article below.
