As some may know, youtube.com has been blocking the videos of smaller kpop companies. This list of company channels includes WOOLLIM ENTERTAINMENT, BTS JAPANESE OFFICIAL, 2PM JAPAN OFFICIAL and J.TUNE CAMPS as well. It's devestating especially to the fans. Unfortunately, MVs for other groups have also become blocked! (Mad Clown, INFINITE, Lovelyz, MBLAQ and the Japanese versions to both BTS' and 2PM's widens as well) [EDITED: CURRENTLY ANY WOOLLIM VIDEO IS NO LONGER BLOCKED AND IS AVAILABLE TO BE VIEWED IN THE U.S.A. BY ONLY A FEW SUBSCRIBERS!]
Sadly no one knows if this is just a mistake made by youtube or if this is being done purposely. Hopefully however, this does get fixed. I know for one thing that this has happened before where I was unable to watch any of lovelyz videos and that was fixed as well.
there is this "youtube red " thing going on however it's rediculous for you tubers because THEY would have to pay to upload for US. But also, essentially anyone who wants to start a youtube would also likely have to pay a monthly fee of $10. JRE has a pretty spot on rant about the issue. This still doesn't mean that it is not a problem for these companies and their subscribers and their connection with fans!
*I am tagging many other groups because it pertains to them too. Reason being, this could easily happen to other groups as well*
these photos are what I just received as to why some channels' videos are currently blocked!

This situation makes me want to write to the President and say "Mr. President this country is about freedom but why is my freedom being taken away by YouTube blocking KPOP. It's my freedom to choose what I want to watch and listen to."
NOOOOOO SHIT
@xsandos17 from what it seems, woollim is doing the YTRed. it can't be said for sure but if their videos ARE working again then it is likely that they did.
