Big Bang has brought 40 to 50% of YG's total sales, and with such a large-scale scandal on its shoulders, it is unclear whether the band would be able to make a comeback at all.
Although its famous girl group, BLACKPINK, made a very successful comeback with "Kill This Love" (100 millions views in 24 hours), YG Entertainment is still on the quest of survival. To note, shares in YG, one of the "Big Three" South Korean entertainment companies, have dropped by 27% since January.
Additionally, analysts also talked about LVMH's investment in YG — around $54 million — making it the second biggest shareholder (after founder Yang Hyun Suk). If they pull their investment by October 7, the maturity date, YG would have to pay back 66.2 billion won in cash. As of the latest data available, the company only held 47 billion won in cash.
While not affected as much as YG, you can't say that the other two big companies, JYP Entertainment and SM Entertainment, weren't impacted by this. The overall stocks are plummeting.
