[Interview] Cha Seung Won Chose YG Entertainment Because of Yang Hyun Suk′s Nephew
Now signed with YG Entertainment, Cha Seung Won revealed the behind story to how that came to be.
Ahead of his movie premiere of High Heel, Cha Seung Won sat down with Newsen at a cafe in Samcheondong for an interview on May 22.
Contracted with YG Entertainment since last January, Cha Seung Won explaiend, "I have a connection with CEO Yang Hyun Suk′s younger brother and YG rep, Yang Min Suk. Yang Min Suk′s son and my second daughter, Yenny, are in the same fifth grade class. I participated in my daughter′s athletics meet and ended up getting to know Yang Min Suk."
"Many agencies were requesting that I sign with them when I met Yang Min Suk. Coincidentally enough, the kids′ mothers are also very close, and my daughter and his son were actually partners in the same class. My daughter also loves Akdong Musician, so my going to YG Entertainment came quite naturally. Also, Yang Min Suk and I agree on a lot of things."
Cha Seung Won continued, showing his faith in the YG rep. "As time goes by, Yang Min Suk is becoming a prominent person. He′s someone that I need."
"I said this on Entertainment Relay, but the YG cafeteria is really good. The cafeteria ladies really like it when I go there."
Meanwhile, High Heel is about a detective (Cha Seung Won) who gets involved in a deadly case after he decides to find his true self. It has been six years since Cha Seung Won returned to work with Director Jang Jin. The film premieres on June 4.
