JYP, YG and SM Entertainment rank highest in netizen poll on artist negligence

In a recent poll that took place from October 21st to October 28th on community site DC Inside, netizens voted on which entertainment companies were most negligent towards their artists. 

In the poll, JYP, YG and SM Entertainment ranked in the highest three as to which companies netizens felt needed the most improvement in their management skills.

JYP Entertainment took first place with 28.6%, reflecting the agency’s center of controversy when 2PM member Taecyeon complained about the companies inner workings to the public, revealing that they needed to work harder on promoting employees within the company and rewarding those who deserve it.

YG Entertainment was 2nd place with 25% of the votes, with the general public feeling the company should keep a “tighter leash” on its artists after several controversies. BIGBANG member Seungri was involved in a car crash, G-Dragon was spotted multiple times with controversial rumored girlfriend, Kiko Mizuhara,  and 2NE1‘s Park Bom in a prescription drug controversy.

SM Entertainment closed the “big 3” with 17.4% of the votes, after a seriously devastating year for the company with the departure of their artists, Kris and Luhan from EXO-M, and Jessica being removed from Girls’ Generation. Netizens commented that they had lost their faith in SM Entertainment’s ability to take care of their individual members.

Take a look at the chart below! Do you agree with the votes?
