  1. Yang Hyun Suk announcements WINNER Mino solo - 80% complete WINNER Seungyoon solo - promises it will be in 2018 iKON new album - 95% complete iKON B.I solo in 2018
  2. 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
  3. Article: [Official] YG and Psy's contract of 8 years ends... "A beautiful farewell" Source: OSEN via Nate 1. [+961, -13] It's good that he left 2. [+897, -67] I just hope that YG isn't giving biased treatment to their artists because of their dependency on Teddy 3. [+680, -12] YG is basically a battle between those who want to release albums vs those who don't want to 4. [+56, -1] I can't believe he's had this same body type since his rookie days... 5. [+43, -0] The real big shot in YG is Teddy... anyway, there's just not enough songs 6. [+41, -1] All three of the top agencies are in a crisis right now. SM with Lee Soo Man's embezzlement, YG with their drug scandals, JYP with the salvation sect cult 7. [+41, -1] They don't have anything to benefit from each other, and Psy never matched YG anyway 8. [+40, -2] Psy can totally run his own agency, no? He makes all his own songs... why bother with the opinions and schedules of others? He can comeback fast if he does things his way 9. [+31, -3] Seems YG's letting him because he's not making any money anymore... like Gummy. Wishing Psy more luck. 10. [+29, -3] Honestly... Psy benefitted nothing off of YG. 'Gangnam Style' was already a hit before he joined YG, YG didn't do anything... 11. [+26, -5] He flopped after joining YG 12. [+23, -3] People don't seem to realize that it's not YG refusing to put out albums.. it's that Teddy has to be involved in everything and he doesn't have the time to do everything 13. [+22, -0] No point in staying if he produces his own songs and doesn't need Teddy http://netizenbuzz.b...er-8-years.html
  4. Pann: YG Yang Hyun Suk revealed to have lost 11 billion won (The production loss was 7 billion won and there was another 4 billion won loss after) 1. [+75, -0] He would've made profits if Winner, Blackpink, iKON, Seungri, and Lee Hi had comebacks instead. 2. [+48, -0] He shouldn't have done this show and made artists have comebacks instead, tsk tsk... 3. [+44, -0] It's time for him to retire. Even if the show is boring, there's people still willing to watch it because he has fans. Yet the show got 0% ratings... He lost his senses. All he has is his pride. 4. [+12, -0] He said he's gonna retire when he loses his senses. Why isn't he retiring yet? He should take care of his artists instead. When is Lee Hi ever coming back? 5. [+11, -0] The Unit didn't do well either but they still debuted and promoted hard. They managed to be a #1 nominee on The Show. Yang Hyun Suk is so irresponsible. He shouldn't have started the show at all. 6. [+6, -0] This is why we got world tour schedules for the second half of the year ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Why did he even do this show ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Even before the show started, YG fans were not going to watch it. https://kpopkfans.blogspot.com.au/2018/05/yg-revealed-to-have-lost-11-billion-won.html
  5. YG Entertainment 1st Quarter 2018 Earnings Report Revenue: 77.3 billion won (-27.7%) Operating Profit: 2.3 billion won (-84.4%) Sales expected to decrease again following BIGBANG's enlistment However growth from WINNER, iKON, and BLACKPINK will help mitigate some of that loss, however ticket sales from these 3 groups only reach 37% of what BIGBANG's ticket sales were.
  6. Article: There won't be a second Jun Somi, 'Produce 48' SM, YG, JYP won't be participatingSource: Sports Chosun via Nate1. [+573, -11] This show always goes the same way...Before it starts: people whine about why it's still going oinRight before it starts: people ignore it but are already hooked on the theme songA few weeks later: people demand that you vote for their bias and second biasAfter: people claim it was the best season yet and the members are awesome2. [+518, -12] This show's like 'WGM'... people swear it up and down but still watch it...3. [+416, -9] There's no reason for SM, JYP, or YG to send their trainees on this show. It's more for the smaller agencies that don't have the system for debut for desperate trainees. SM JYP YG don't need the extra attention or promotion from this show.4. [+16, -3] I have a feeling it won't be as good as the previous seasons5. [+9, -1] It's time for a new group from SM, JYP has 'Sixteen 2' to go, and I don't think Mnet is on good terms with YG6. [+8, -0] The majority of Japanese girl groups don't have the skills to even make it past Korean auditions... If you actually saw Japanese idol groups, you'd realize why Korean groups are so popular there. Even Korean trainees struggle to survive the intense competition here, do you really think the Japanese kids can do it?7. [+6, -0] I think this is the season that it'll fail though... it's not even just Korean idols, half of the cast is from Japan...8. [+6, -0] Doesn't this season have Japanese kids....9. [+4, -0] All three agencies already have preparations for their own girl groups underway, there's no reason for them to waste the spotlight on trainees they'll be debuting in 5 years10. [+3, -0] I've noticed that debuting off of this show is just a waste of your image and your career never really takes off any which way. It's better to just keep your trainees quiet and debut them the right way. Look at all the IOI kids... other than Kim Sejung or Chungha, the rest have lost the spotlight...-
  7. Pann: 2017 ranking of physical sales by companies 1. [+141, -5] BTS is daebak 2. [+113, -5] Wow, how many did Big Hit sell with BTS? Amazing 3. [+130, -4] BTS sold 2.6M alone ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Cool 4. [+39, -17] BTS is by themselves and SM has more than 10 teams including subunits and solos... Amazing. 5. [+31, -0] SM has a lot of popular idols like EXO, Red Velvet, SHINee, and NCT so it's not surprising that they're #1. Big Hit and YMC are doing well just with BTS and Wanna One ㅋㅋ That's amazing. I'm surprised that Pledis is catching up. Pledis revived with NU'EST and Seventeen is still a trend. Pristin did well for a rookie girl group. YG is unexpected. Their digital sales are huge but their public recognition is bigger than the fandom. Doesn't mean that they have a small fandom but just big public recognition compared to it. 6. [+29, -0] Is Pledis real ㅋㅋㅋㅋ i'm already annoyed because Pledis will become arrogant with this. Pledis, it's not that you guys are doing well, it's the artists that did well. You guys are only greedy over money and don't deserve to be on the list. 7. [+24, -0] Around Us ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 8. [+23, -0] Big Hit achieved it by BTS alone ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Daebak 9. [+21, -0] It's like the idiom "one successful daughter over ten sons". Big Hit sold that much with BTS alone. Really amazing. 10. [+20, -0] Wow, Big Hit is amazing... Around Us is also made by a re-debuted group. It's cool that they're on the ranking.
