While there definitely have been a battle among the three agencies to see who sits at the top of the KPOP industry, a different kind of battle has been recently occurring: cafeteria style.


JYP entertainment recently moved from its old office to a brand new building with a cafeteria that prides itself in all organic foods. Jin Young Park himself has been known to enjoy fresh organic food for his body, and it is said that he created this cafeteria to share his healthy eating habits with his fellow staff and artists. 

 YG entertainment's cafeteria has been known for a while for its delicious tastes made be the ahjoomas. Sights of artists, staff, and trainees eating at the cafeteria can often be seen through television shows!
