  1. Q.Are there plans to debut new rookies from YG this year? A.After various changes in YG due to BIGBANG’s enlistments and PSY, I thought that it’s more important to focus on our existing artists to let them release new songs and further develop as artists. As a result, iKON made comeback on January and WINNER made comeback on April, while BLACKPINK is preparing to make comeback on June 15. Q.Any news on SEUNGRI’s solo album release? A.SEUNGRI will release his first full-length album on early July. SEUNGRI released two mini albums on 2011 and 2013, so it will be not only his first full-length album but also his comeback as a solo artist in 5 years. Also, SEUNGRI is planning to hold his first solo concert on August, in Seoul. The reason why SEUNGRI was able to prepare his full-length album earlier than expected was due to SEUNGRI’s reckless energy. He sent me confirmation request messages several times a day, so my hardest task while being hospitalized was responding to SEUNGRI’s messages since I couldn’t use my arms. <80% joke, 20% facts> SEUNGRI will also star in a variety program called ‘YG Electronics’ scheduled to air on September through ‘Netflix’, which dramatizes some of the events that happen within YG. SEUNGRI’s variety senses will stand out in the program. Q.What are some of the new plans of YG which haven’t yet been revealed to the public. A. A couple big events which have been prepared over the past couple years will take place at the end of this year, so I will summarize two plans that you will be interested in. 1. A YG Hip-hop crew that will continue the legacy of YG Family is currently being formed. On May 20, we had a small event to celebrate YG’s 22nd year founding anniversary. After the failure of the group Keep Six in 1996, the first artist group produced by YG, JINUSEAN and 1TYM made debut in 1997 and 1998 respectively, which let the public recognize the start of YG Entertainment. JINUSEAN and 1TYM achieved huge success by introducing Hip-hop music to the K-Pop scene, which was relatively an unfamiliar genre at the time. Following the success, YG Family’s first album and second album were released in 1999 and 2002, respectively. G-DRAGON was introduced through the title song ‘Hip Hop Gentleman’ from the 2nd album. It was the time when YG was known as a professional Hop-hop agency. After SE7EN and LEXY successfully debuted on 2003 and artists including Wheesung, Gummy, and Big Mama also achieved success under collaboration with M.BOAT, we were unable to release more YG Family albums since we had many artists diversified in different music genres. Since the impression YG Family gave to the public was so strong that people still mention the name even after 15 years, I thought about how to replace YG Family and eventually planned to form YG’s new Hip-hop crew. The group will be consisted of elite next generation artists from YG such as members from WINNER and iKON, who are close to each other and have great skills. We are planning to produce a program that illustrates the founding and detailed daily lives of the group, who will perform minor themed music. While it is our goal to release a new song within this year, the plan is only a rough sketch in my head at the moment. The good things about the new Hip-hop crew will be that members can focus on Hip-hop songs they couldn’t while they were part of their own teams, and that they will be able to release solo tracks very often. It will be a group that has many advantages and charms. I will calmly plan the project so that my rough sketch could become reality. 2. The foundation of YGX Academy / Supporting SEUNGRI’s DJ Label On August, we will establish a subsidiary company of YG called YGX. YGX will be in charge of 3 different tasks. The first task HIGHGRND’s title and tasks will be transferred to YGX, and YGX will continue discovering new rookies and will handle various entertainment agency tasks. Unlike HIGHGRND which did not involve YG, YGX will be co-operated with YG, while involving YG directly and indirectly. The second task YGX will be in charge of YG’s first dance academy. I am very excited because opening a dance academy is something I wished to do even before founding YG, since I used to be a dancer. It’s not hard to find top stars in Korea who say that they were previously dropped out from a YG audition. Since YGX Academy will discover and develop aspiring individuals who dream of becoming singers or dancers who may enter YG in the future, it will be a great opportunity for both parties and lower the risk of missing out on talented individuals who have potential to become superstars. There will be programs not only for trainees but also programs for the public, and people will be able to experience the same training artists from YG receive since choreographers and dancers from YG will teach the lessons themselves. The third task YGX will merge with NHR, which is a DJ label which is operated by SEUNGRI. YGX will target foreign markets using various methods, such as supporting DJs through collaboration with artists from YG. That was it. Since it’s been a couple years, I had a lot to talk about and also a lot I couldn’t express. As I read my own writing, I feel like I lack in writing skills, once again. I’m sorry I couldn’t mention SECHSKIES, LEE HI, and Lee Su-Hyun from AKMU in this writing, but please know that I will always do my best.Lastly, one of the things I really wanted to do when I first produced SECHSKIES was to produce EUN JIWON’s solo Hip-hop album.I thought about it since I still have the confidence, but it’s still only my desire since SECHSKIES’ successful comeback was a priority. I would like to conclude my writing by stating that I would like to make it happen in the near future. I don’t know when I’ll write to you again, it may be in a couple years. But I sincerely hope that this writing resolved at least a tenth of our fans’ curiosities. I hope everyone to stay healthy and be full of joy. I’m always sincerely sorry and grateful. 2018. 5. 26 FROM YG
  2. Article: Yang Hyun Suk, "Katie Kim wanted to transfer... she moved to her debut manager's new agency" Source: Kuki News via Nate 1. [+369, -14] But imagine how they must've kept her rotting away for her to make that decision... Honestly I sometimes wonder if YG even knows whether some of their artists are alive other than Big Bang.. 2. [+347, -15] Sure it sounds nice when you say it that way, acting like he's letting her transfer out of good will and blaming it on her debut manager for taking her... but I honestly think it's more like Katie Kim leaving because she wasn't getting any support and her debut manager was pissed too so they manned up and left together ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Yang CEO is super fast only when it comes to feedback where he's the one getting hate. Never gives feedback about his own artists ㅋㅋ 3. [+341, -18] This thug needs to stay off of audition shows 4. [+25, -0] Jung Seung Hwan was #2 and he's promoting actively meanwhile the actual winner Katie Kim hasn't gotten to debut yet. Stop treating their lives like it's some joke. 5. [+22, -0] What was the point of taking her then? 6. [+20, -1] I refuse to watch any show where he's a judge anymore 7. [+20, -6] What were you doing for three years without debuting her then? 8. [+13, -1] You really don't know whether an artist is alive anymore or not once they join YG. They take all these kids as teens and waste their best years rotting away.. - Article: [Official statement] YG Yang Hyun Suk, "Big Bang's hiatus won't be long... Black Pink's comeback is confirmed for June 15th" Source: Sports Donga via Nate 1. [+126, -10] When Big Bang gets out of the army, they won't be that young anymore... and I doubt they'll want to continue doing idol style music. iKON and Winner are supposed to take their place as boy groups and while Winner's doing okay, iKON's... 2. [+118, -4] I guess they left Katie Kim on the backburner and are letting her go now 3. [+59, -5] Screw off.. 4. [+16, -3] Give more support to Winner. They all have great variety skills and can definitely take after Big Bang as a public friendly group with great music. They need another fall ballad. 5. [+14, -0] For all that media play YG did about Black Pink exceeding 2NE1, their three years of promos have barely lived up to the fame of 'Fire' ㅋㅋ 6. [+11, -4] As long as you leave TOP out of it 7. [+10, -3] YG needs to work on their dance moves 8. [+8, -1] Give Winner more support. They're the only group in the company that has both public friendly and likability factors. 9. [+8, -0] iKON doesn't seem to be able to show off their individual charms as well as their songs yet 10. [+7, -1] So where's Lee Hi's album ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  3. Papa YG Yang Hyun Suk has just announced the release date of Black Pink's 1st mini album. Via his Instagram on May 25, Yang Hyun Suk shared a screen capture of a recent Q&A interview, where he answered, "The absence of YG's only girl group Black Pink was too long. Because they continued to release singles right after their debut, fans were disappointed; but this coming June 15, Black Pink will release their 1st mini album. As long as it took to prepare, we have satisfactory products, and we believe that beginning with the mini album release in June, the group will be able to carry out promotions throughout the year with new songs back to back. Please look forward to Black Pink's unstoppable run."

  4. Pann: Blackpink's lightstick was just revealed 1. [+86, -0] Another item added to YG's weapon series ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Winner's lightstick is a pickax, iKON's lightstick is a baseball bat, Bigbang's lightstick is for stabbing... 2. [+73, -1] After seeing the previously photoshopped one, this one looks pretty... 3. [+68, -2] Hul ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It'll be so funny to hit a fan's head in front of me with this ㅋㅋㅋㅋ 4. [+46, -2] This is what will happen if iKON and Blackpink perform on the same day 5. [+37, -1] That's a pretty design for $20, I envy you... My lightstick is an ugly pounding hammer that costs $35. I fucking bought it. 6. [+34, -0] What's with these idiots calling it an adult item? Do you think of that when you see a plastic hammer? What do you even have in your head, tsk tsk 7.

[+25, -0] Thor bong ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 10. [+21, -0] I was worried but it's actually cute. 11. [+20, -0] Thor's hammer is a popular design for lightsticks these days. NCT's lightstick is a hammer and Blackpink's lightstick is a plastic hammer... But our lightstick costs $35, I envy the price...
  5. YG Entertainment revealed BLACKPINK‘s official lightstick on May 23rd through the “YG SELECT” Instagram. The BLACKPINK lightstick was most emphasized in terms of appearance and function. Lovely heart-shaped pink hammers and chic black sticks are combined to create a unique lightstick that has never seen before. The lightstick boasts a charm that resembles BLACKPINK, attracting the attention and stimulates the desire to buy one. It was also revealed that the BLACKPINK members themselves participated in the design stage and added value. In addition, the ON / OFF function was also inserted to prevent interference during the performance. The light can be adjusted to ‘normal mode’ where light is continuously turned on according to the number of times the power button was pressed, or to ‘response mode’ that responds to the bass sound. BLACKPINK, who confirmed their comeback in June, is preparing for the perfect music and stage more than ever.
