[ARTICLE]G-Dragon "Summoned by the Prosecution", No Freedom of Expression for Musicians?

There are many controversies over G-Dragon's performance that was marked as an offense for an immoral performance and also said that it infringed the youth protection laws. We have to recognize that the core of this controversy is the freedom of a creator and that we cannot overlook the freedom of the audience who has the right to enjoy a creator's expressions and results.

This controversy this time is very ambiguous. What is the standard for obscenity? Is it when someone feels sexually harassed or is it when someone thinks that it is simply too erotic? But it’s not like the police could just pick a random person that was at G-Dragon’s concert and ask "Was that too obscene for you?"

There is no set standard for something that is erotic or for something that is obscene and this controversy is equivocal. Also, performers were not naked that made the audience feel like they were watching an 18A performance. Then was the performance obscene because it was about sex? Our society that corners sex as obscene is more abnormal.

Saying that there is a problem with a performance that makes one think about sex is a problem itself since that could mean sex=immoral. Well it’s a whole different problem if G-Dragon's performance was too explicit; however, his performance was short and people had various opinions about it.

The start of this controversy and tragedy was the opinion differences between the audience and the public that was saying G-Dragon's performance was immoral. This eventually led more than 1000 of the audiences that were at G-dragon's concert to turn in a petition to the prosecution.

These people turned in a petition saying "For the obscene performance crime the audience has to agree with the fact that the performance was obscene and over the line; however, G-Dragon's concert was not obscene at all and it did not sexually harass us in any way." Also, these people said the performance as a whole cannot be judged by the short moment.

The more important thing is the freedom of creation. A society that threatens the freedom of creation for musicians makes a society where there is no cultural variety. If G-Dragon's two-hour-long concert is valid as obscenity because of the momentary performance during it, then this is invading the freedom and the rights of a creator.

Via G-Dragon "Summoned by the Prosecution", No Freedom of Expression for Musicians?


[FULL COVERAGE]1,000 G-Dragon fans started petition for "we don't think it's a sexual harassment"

A group of 1,000 fans at various age ranges from 20s to early 50s gathered to start petition for G-Dragon’s freedom of speech to Seoul Eastern District Prosecutors' Office.

The news reported that, at the first gathering, the petitioners had recruited all volunteers mainly from the internet and will soon follow up with two or more.

The fans stated in their own words that the performance they had witnessed in G-Dragon "Shine a Light" Concert on December 5 and 6, 2009 "WAS NOT OBSCENE" and expressed their opinions as following:

“The audiences did not take it as porn at all. We did not even get sexually aroused.”

“It’s unacceptable to judge the whole show as pornography from some illegal video clip taped by the fans.”

“We’re not meant to be there for sexual harassment because we paid to get in.”

“The term “obscene” given to this particular performance does not apply to the preteen audiences. They did not participate in it just to be sexual harassed. Speaking of the stage design and the overall concert, coining the term is like downgrading its state of art. We strongly defend it in the name of G-Dragon.”

“Attending this show is not taken as guilty as a sin for the audiences. We’re doing this because we have to. It’s such an unfair treatment (to G-Dragon) and we’re the fans in charge to take some action.”

The show had gone under investigation involving lewd conduct to minors and violation of the Youth Protection Act. It had been arranged by Seoul Eastern District Prosecutors' Office on the commission of the Ministry for Health, Welfare and Family Affairs.

[NEWS]Prosecutors to prepare subpoena for “lewd conduct to minors” for G-Dragon

BIGBANG G-Dragon will be summoned to the prosecutors in a criminal investigation for the violation of Youth Protection Act for the public performance that contains “lewd conduct to minors.”

The investigation is focusing on last year G-Dragon F.I.R.S.T Solo Concert “Shine a Light” which considered as exhibiting explicit performance, despite the fact that it is rated as strictly prohibited for the preteens under the age of 12.

Seoul Eastern District Prosecutors' official stated, “The investigation is in the progress of collecting, reviewing and summing up all information given based on the subjected matter,” then continued, “We will determine the specific timeframe when G-Dragon will be summoned to this investigation process shortly after this.”

G-Dragon held his concert last December with a performance of arousing sexual libido with a female dancer in “Breathe.”

The prosecutors are seeking for the reasons that given “She’s Gone” and “Korean Dream” were banned by the same Act in November then why those two songs were deliberately added to the aforementioned show.

The two specific songs are prohibited for sale, rent, screening and/or distributing in any channels to the adolescences by this law.

Individual who is convicted of lewd conduct according to the Article 245 in the Youth Protection Act will face fine not exceeding ₩ 5,000,000 and one-year imprisonment and the penalties for violation of the same Act are ₩ 20,000,000 fines and three-year imprisonment.

YG Entertainment Representative gave a statement on the issue that, “YG will assist the investigators in this progress and will take care of it on behalf of the client (G-Dragon).” then added “we will hereby accept the decision and are responsible for the legal action taken according to the Act.”

God saves Kwon Leader. Keep your fingers crossed for him, VIPs.

[NEWS]YG office relocation scheduled in late January

BIGBANG and 2NE1 are all set to move into their new YG office building to celebrate the upcoming Korean Lunar New Year Day next month (it’s on 10/02/14 which is also the Valentine's Day plus BIGBANG Electric Love Tour period in Japan)

All YG Family members such as BIGBANG,2NE1,Se7en and Gummy will relocate in this 7-storey office built by the Han River in Hapjeong-dong,Mapo-gu district around the end of January this year.

The company stated that the old office space, also in the same area, which it has rent since 1997 becomes less convenience for YG to expand its own office operation and so does the recording studios.

The new place is worth ₩ 10,000,000,000 with the size of 2,078 square meters and will house YG headquarter, offices, rehearsal rooms and music recording studios and other facilities that represent the unique style of the iconic Yang Hyun Suk.

Note: And when will Yangsa give us the exact date of TaeYang’s Real release? It’s been delayed like weeks up until now ==’
