This is so petty.  Apple Music users stay winning, though. 

The control I have a feeling they'll eventually lift this ban - it just doesn't seem sustainable to me.

I still have all of those artists on Spotify. I think this ban is only for South Korean audience as to make sure not a lot of users switch to Spotify from the local services. For the international audience, it's still there :mhm_britney_nodding_yes_mhmm:

Nope, Reddit and Twitter are full of international fans losing their minds. You must be some weird outlier, idk... :idkney_britney_glory_carpool_karaoke_unsure_idk_nervous:

I just realized Hyuna's old discography owned by her previous label Cube is gone :omggg_shocked_hand_old_lady_woman_surprised: The stuff she produced with P Nation is still there. She needs to buy rights to her music ASAP, this could kill her income :umomg_britney_shocked_wow_omg_surprised_eyes_wide:

Those who are not affected might have the songs downloaded prior the purged. Anyway, I was so furious when half of the songs on my playlist gone. I have no choice, and decided to terminate my subscription and jump to Apple Music. I heard that the negotiation has been started since 1.5 year ago but they didn't even get a closure for the licensing agreement. Kinda sad tho because I'm so obsessed with Spotify's algorithm when ir come's to music suggestion. But at the same time, I paid for my music, so I bye bye Spotify.
