[NEWS] YG, “Even If BIGBANG Does Decide to Leave YG, I Will Help Them”
Korean news outlet Daily Sports recently approached Yang Hyun Suk at his recently-opened restaurant in Hongdae and asked him some – potentially sensitive – questions about recent goings-on, but only after they got him loose with some Johnnie Walker Blue, says the report.
Daily Sports first asks Yang Hyun Suk about the criticism he received for BIGBANG’s monthly releases, and the group’s apparent monopolization of the spotlight.
“No matter what anyone says, BIGBANG is one of Hallyu’s biggest frontrunners. And they released an album after three years. From YG’s point of view, it was an album released with difficulty. Rather than other artists, who end with just a single round of promotions, we wanted to highlight each of the songs. The scale of our world tours is getting bigger, and we wanted to film music videos for each of the songs and show the whole world,” says Yang Hyun Suk. He says that BIGBANG wasn’t able to do promotions in Korea due to the group’s world tour schedule, and asks for understanding from fans, as BIGBANG is promoting for fans worldwide.
However, Yang Hyun Suk states, “Even if BIGBANG does decide to leave YG, I will help them. Sincerely. A long time ago an investor asked me how he would trust in YG if Wheesung, Gummy,Se7en, and Lexy left the company. It was a very old-fashioned question. We didn’t end up working with that investor. However, afterwards, we yielded great results with artists like BIGBANG, 2NE1, Psy, and Epik High. We think highly of curiosity for new things, and our goals for tomorrow, and I strongly believe that if we just do our best with what we have now, great results will always be just around the corner.”
He says, “What I want most from BIGBANG is that they stay together. They’ll be 10 years into their careers next year, and just like the Rolling Stones, I want them to promote together as BIGBANG even when they’re old. And my personal wish is to be able to help and support them along the way.”
