Winner Of ‘High School Rapper’, Yang Hong-Won Joins The Latest Rapper Swings Label

Do you still remember the ‘High School Rapper’ survival show on MNET?

The program was won by Yang Hong-Won, or YOUNG B, who is a High School Student from Seoul Kangso district, and it was attended by high school students and those who like rap and hip-hop. His latest news is that Yang Hong-Won has apparently just joined the latest label from rapper Swings, called Indigo Music.

Swings was one of the mentors in that survival program.

Friday (04/21/2017) Indigo Music announced the good news. “Swings has just made a new label. Musicians who are members of it now are YOUNG B (Yang Hong-Won) and Kid Milli. After this, we are thinking of recruiting other artists,” they said.

Young B Turns Out To Be A Thug And Underage Drunkard

Korean netizens are known to voice their opinions, and don’t hesitate to resort to outright bullying. They never hesitate to put down an idol they don’t like. One of their mainstay ways is to uncover past misdeeds of artists who they hate.

One of the idols who’s been on the receiving end of the bullying was NCT’s Taeyong. Then, recently, Jang Yong-Joon became another victim. This ‘High School Rapper’ participant even had to step down from the program and write an official apology.

Now that the news about Jang Yong-joon is starting to subside, it’s Young B’s turn to be targeted because of his past behavior.

Reported from Allkpop through tribunstyle, Yang Hong-Won, or Young B, used to drink hard, smoked while still underage and liked to bully his schoolmates. One of his school friends also said that Young B was once very stubborn. He was considered a school thug, who was often reported to the teacher by student guardians. Not only that, Young B also was reported to have behaves disrespectfully to the teacher. As a result, he became one of the students who was always supervised by the teacher.

Proof of Young B’s mischief turned out to be just not there. Like the name, ‘school thug’, Young B often asked for his friend’s belongings. If his friend doesn’t want to give them over, Young B would hit him. One bit of proof of Young B’s past mischief is a photo taken when he was at karaoke. There appeared to be liquor and several cigarettes on the table in front of him at the karaoke room. If it was his, the behavior s truly unexpected, because South Korea is a country that is very strict and strictly prohibits minors from smoking and drinking alcohol.

So far, Young B is still closing himself and hasn’t given any confirmation. In fact, he made his account private because of being attacked by so many haters through SNS.

‘High School Rapper’ Makes Official Statement Regarding Yang Hong-Won’s Controversy

The Mnet School Rapper program released an official statement related to Yang Hong-Won’s controversy, or as he’s commonly known, ‘Young B’.

After the show’s second episode, Yang Hong-Won received public attention because of his stunning appearance. However, he was exposed to be involved in controversies such as underage drinking, smoking and violence at school.

On February 22, Mnet provided clarification regarding the matter. They said, “Yang Hong-Won received mistakes in his past and now reflects all of his actions. He said he could not apologize to all those who were victims of his mistakes. He still pondered himself continuously and tried hard. Allow Yang Hong-Won to show himself growing up and working hard through new opportunities. Please see it on the fun side.

Unlike Jang Yoon-Joon, Yang Hong-Suk will continue the competition despite the criticism he continues to receive.
