STARLIGHTs have been posting on Instiz and Pann to express their anger over VIXX’s agency, Jellyfish Entertainment. Sports World just touched up on the issue which I’ll translate and summarize here.
VIXX fans have had enough of Jellyfish’s antics and believe that the group is badly managed. STARLIGHTs believe the company now has “superstardom sickness” which is a term used to characterize entertainment companies that treat fans like dirt but still expect them to support the artist, buy their content, etc (example: SHINee and EXO managers disrespecting fans but the fandom barely speaks up about it). Since VIXX is a group that won their first music show award this year and ranked as one of the top boy groups in the physical album sales charts, STARLIGHTs believe Jellyfish is getting arrogant.
So why are STARLIGHTs mad at Jellyfish and expressing their anger now?
-Park Yong Ha, an employee in Jellyfish Entertainment, was jailed for fraudulent activity involving counterfeit money and for using up to $185,000 USD of a deceased person by stealing his/her identity. Despite this being a social problem, Park Yong Ha also continuously managed VIXX for a while. When Yong Ha was imprisoned Jellyfish Entertainment tried to throw the issue under the rug. Fans wanted an explanation and were are shocked that a corrupt man was in charge of VIXX and what he could’ve done to them.
-Last year at a “Mango Six Event” VIXX was in charge of making beverages for a special 100 fans who came to the event. The lucky fans would not only get to sit in the juice cafe but also would receive an autographed CD. The event was to last 1 hour however at the last minute Jellyfish Entertainment changed the plans and fans only got to greet VIXX for 1 minute before the idols left. There was no explanation for this.
-STARLIGHTs are forbidden from giving gifts to VIXX. While most fan cafes organize gifts to give to their favorite idols, 2-3 days before a VIXX member’s birthday Jellyfish Entertainment forbade fans from giving the group gifts. Instead they suggested STARLIGHTs make monetary donations to the company.
-Despite the events described above Jellyfish also has problems with the way they treat fans. During a photoshoot when a media blog [at the event] decided to post an article about Jellyfish’s managers bad attitude problem, STARLIGHTs exploded with anger at the cover-up because JF didn’t respond to it*
VIXX are decent idols but if they don’t want to get cursed out because of their agency then their management needs to fix itself. Jellyfish Entertainment also manages Seo In Guk and Sung Shi Kyung.
STARLIGHTs are calling for a boycott of all of VIXX’s content in a complicated way to punish Jellyfish Entertainment for their rude and disrespectful behavior.
Besides this article, fans also believe VIXX may be bullied by their own staff. Posts have come up talking about how much weight Hongbin has lost and if Jellyfish is purposely telling him to lose more weight when he doesn’t need to.
A gif of a female manager pulling a coffee thermos out of Ken’s hands has also been making rounds. Fans believe Jellyfish’s employees won’t even let the group do simple things as have a cup of coffee. The gif hits a soft spot especially since Ken holds on to the thermos but the manager still takes it away. Eventually out of nervous laughter Ken lets go.
Incidents of Rude Behavior by VIXX’s Managers Towards Fans
1.) During a public broadcast the manager was highly rude towards fans. When VIXX passed by us we didn’t yell or make a ruckus but only clapped for them, but the manager bluntly cursed at us, “Ah you fuckers, stay quiet when you see your oppas!”
2.) The day VIXX won #1 on Music Bank (for “Voodoo Doll”), a representative asked the group’s manager that if fans get up from their seats out of excitement to please maintain order. The manager replied, “I’ll throw all those bitches out myself”
STARLIGHTs posted a unanimous** demand towards Jellyfish Entertainment telling them to fix their attitude towards fans and to treat them and their idols better.
**The idea of a unanimous post came not from a petition but from STARLIGHTs circulating a bullet list demand suggesting what they believed Jellyfish should improve.

Confession: I hate how people think that Hyuk is useless. You have to realize that he only had 3 months to train, so Jellyfish must’ve saw something in him to have let him debut with VIXX. And I do too. He has something that just makes you feel attracted to him. He’s a great dancer, funny, charming, cute without looking fake, manly, and his voice is just so calming to listen too. Based on the few lines that he had, I can tell that with a bit more training and learning, he’ll be an awesome artist. Just wait.
In his eye ≧□≦○ ♡.
