Titled “Difference Between SM and YG,” here is the direct translation of the post and comments below.
Recruits kids who are top of their classes~ (of course there are exceptions)
These are fund kids who like to have fun.
But then, they also recruit people who can speak difference languages.
They like people who look Korean but are international.
They pick the best looking people (there are also exceptions)
Their visuals are outstanding.. both girls and guys.
They dress their idols really well.
Even their airport fashions are wanted by fans and netizens.
SM’s chairman Lee Sooman is working hard to grow these flowers but
due to his success, he is wanted by the international police interpol.
All of the kids knew how to play and get turnt at an early age.
They were already talented in playing and they can really put a party on.
YG recruits all of these kids.
That is why there are sometimes problems with their alleged ‘attitude’
But then, YG only recruits people with talent..
Especially in hip hop and rap..
Due to G-dragon, there are very Korean rhythms in songs..
This agency has the most influence in the US and Europe.
But… CEO Yang Hyun Suk is a selfish collector that only wants these dolls for himself..
And doesn’t want to release them to the public often..
They have unique fashion.
They also have people who cause controversies outside of work.”
