[ +157 / -10] YG’s net income is awesome… I’m jealous of Hyunsuk’s cousin

[ +154 / -85] I think YG Entertainment is more impressive. They only had BIG BANG, iKON, Psy and Jinusean to comeback. SM’s groups all made a comeback twice including EXO, Red Velvet, Girls’ Generation, Super Junior, F(x) and SHINee

[ +101 / -11] If you look at the net income, the top 4 agencies are SM, YG, JYP and Plan A right? A Pink earns a lot of money…
