YG Apologizes To WINNER Fans For Playing iKON Clip At Concert
On October 18, the director of the live performance department at YG Entertainment apologized for the brief playing of an iKON clip at WINNER’s concert in Kuala Lumpur this past weekend.
The incident sparked criticism and backlash from WINNER fans, who demanded an explanation and apology from YG, as this was not the first time that the agency has mistaken the two groups. YG has previously tagged iKON instead of WINNER on several occasions, addressed iKONICs instead of Inner Circle, and more.
Director Jeung Chi Young of YG said in an apology posted on YG Entertainment’s official homepage:
“To dearest Inner Circle,
“As a director of live performance department and on behalf of YG Entertainment, I’d like to take a moment to express my sincere apology for the incident on last weekend’s “WINNER 2018 EVERYWHERE TOUR IN KUALA LUMPUR.’
“During the concert in Kuala Lumpur, one of our operating staffs made a huge mistake of playing a wrong VCR and music. This should not have happened and cannot be ignored, everyone at YG dealt with the matter very seriously. The operator has been removed from all the remaining tours and we made sure to go over all the programming once more.
“Thank you fans for your continuous love and support for Winner, we will work towards to keep deliver the quality concerts and will not disappoint you again.”
