Singer and producer Zico from the group Block B mentioned Hybe's financial power when asked about the difference between small and large agencies.


In this day's video, MC Jonathan introduced Zico, saying, "He started off as a small to medium-sized company's idol, then established a major label and is living his life to the fullest."

Jonathan then asked, "You debuted as a small to medium-sized company's idol during Block B. What is the biggest difference between small and large companies?" Zico said, "The financial power itself is different. (Small and medium-sized companies) have less resources and opportunities," and added, "I didn't even start at the stage of a small or medium-sized company. It started from scratch, almost from scratch,” he said, drawing attention.

Zico, who debuted with Block B in April 2011, established his own agency, KOZ Entertainment, in 2018. About two years later, in 2020, it was acquired by Hybe and incorporated into the label.

Zico, who debuted at a small and medium-sized agency, went through the various processes of setting up KOZ agency and being incorporated into Hybe, and is a person who is well aware of the pros and cons of each system. The fact that Zico said of Hybe that ‘the financial power is different and the resources and opportunities provided are good’ has a special meaning.

In particular, this appears to be contradictory to the fact that ADOR CEO Min Heejin has recently expressed great dissatisfaction with the management of parent company Hybe. CEO Min launched the group NewJeans with the financial power and infrastructure of the label provided by Hybe, but raised eyebrows by taking all the credits for herself. Furthermore, CEO Min made waves by criticizing Hybe for interfering with NewJeans' debut.

1. But he shot this before Hybe's controversy broke 

2. They're even using this now 

3. It's the fact that they're mediaplaying like that wow ㅋㅋㅋ

4. Seriously Hybe makes a living my shielding themselves using their artists
It must be nice to have so many artists to grab hair from ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Is that the reason why they acquired all those various agencies?

5. But I feel like the article could've been more impactful had they not mention Min Heejin and simply talked about how he thinks their support is good 

6. Ah seriously they're really using everything they can use at this point ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. So they're really using the company's artists now 

8. The mediaplay is disgusting 

9. Wow but seriously why aren't we getting any articles representing Min Heejin's side? Every article that is being released is on Hybe's side

10. The mediaplay is daebak... Anyone can tell that Zico is simply talking about himself here ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
