Fans of male group WINNER, also known as Inner Circle have decided to boycott the group’s WWIC DVD as a sign of defiance against YG Entertainment.
Not having made a release this year, WINNER has also repeatedly delayed their comeback, enraging fans. The official fandom for the group announced to fans that they need to boycott the new DVD to tell YG Entertainment that they aren’t just ATMs for the company to take money from.
In addition to their disdain for the group not having released anything new recently, fans also noted that despite this, the group continues to promote in Japan, and has had over ten Japanese tours in two years. Fans also noted YG Entertainment is also selling practice videos in DVDs, despite the fact that practice videos for other artists tend to be free for fans to watch online.

[+ 266, – 1] I’m from a different fandom so I don’t understand how they have 7 DVDs after 1 album….? Is this group the goose that lays golden eggs? YG albums are always so heavy and expensive I feel like maybe they’re taking advantage of the fans too much?
[+ 253, – 1] Why would you sell choreography videos…is everything coming down to money now? WINNER is a Korean group not a Japanese group they should prioritize activities in Korea shouldn’t they?
[+ 242, – 2] How messy does a company have to be for FANS to boycott their bias’s album….YG wake up this makes me so angry.
