JYP says companies are planning to request investigation over sajaegi … just like in 2013

공정한 경쟁과 평가는 어느 분야가 발전하는데 초석이 됩니다. 최근 음원순위 조작에 관한 의혹들이 제기되어 의혹을 제기하는 분들과 또 의혹을 받는 분들 모두 힘든 시간을 보내고 있습니다. 이미 유관부서인 문화체육관광부에 조사를 의뢰한 회사도 있는 걸로 알고 있습니다. 저희 또한 , 업계의 여러 회사들과 이 문제에 대해서 논의를 마치고 문화체육관광부, 공정거래위원회에 우선 조사를 의뢰하고 추가 결과에 따라 검찰에도 이 문제를 의뢰할 계획입니다. 제기되고 있는 의혹들이 명백히 밝혀져 하루빨리 아티스트들과 회사들이 본래의 업무에 집중할 수 있게 되기를 바랍니다. Fair competition and evaluation is the cornerstone for any industry. Recently there are suspicions regarding music chart fabrication and it's hurting all parties related to it. We heard there're already requests made to the Ministry of culture, sports and tourism by another company. We are currently discussing this matter with other companies and planning to request investigations to the Ministry of culture, sports and tourism and the KFTC. Depending on the result we are planning to take this to the prosecutors' office. Hope these suspicions get cleared so we can all go back to our real job.

JYP took to Instagram recently to address the issue of sajaegi, seemingly in response to SHAUN‘s recent unexpected rise, saying that companies are planning to request investigations into the matter.

Cool, hopefully it works, I guess.

On that note, remember when JYP Entertainment, YG Entertainment, SM Entertainment, Star Empire Entertainment, Cube Entertainment, and FNC Entertainment joined back in 2013 to stamp out this issue once and for all? Good times. Though it’s almost as if that as long as real-time (and daily and probably weekly) charts exists, nothing will stop people from doing it.
