It goes without saying that all agencies have rules. Sometimes the rules make sense, and other times they’re a little iffy. But, whether they make sense (or not!) the rules exist and trainees have to live by them. YG Entertainment, of course, has its own set of rules for trainees to live by. Here are the rules groups like WINNER and BLACKPINK have had to follow:
1. No Plastic Surgery
YG Entertainment doesn’t allow his artists to get plastic surgery. It’s not like they need it anyway, I mean, look at this:
They’re all total natural beauties!
2. No Tattoos
Another thing YG doesn’t allow his artists to get without his explicit permission is tattoos.
3. No Drinking Or Smoking
During an appearance on Radio Star, BLACKPINK mentioned that drinking and smoking were included on the list of things they weren’t allowed to do.
4. No Dating
During an appearance on Radio Star, Jisoo shared that YG even separates male and female trainees, making sure they even have different meal times.
(Of course, we know the YG Princess Jennie dated EXO‘s Kai for a little bit!)
5. No Driving
Also on Radio Star, the members discussed how Rosé wasn’t allowed to get her license. Mino from WINNER once said that “If we want to buy a car, we have to get direct approval from our company first.”
What do you think about these rules? Do you think they’re fair?
