Yang Hyun Suk Claims Big Bang Made YG Entertainment
YG Entertainment’s head producer Yang Hyun Suk expressed his affection for the company’s group Big Bang.
Yang Hyun Suk attended the press conference for the new survival program Mix & Match on September 2 in Conrad Seoul Hotel, Yeouido-dong.
Upon hearing that the continuous survival programs are rather harsh, Yang Hyun Suk started, “It may seem harsh, since they are all precious children in their homes. One time I asked the Big Bang members, ‘do you think that YG made Big Bang or that Big Bang made YG?’”
Yang Hyun Suk said, “I think that Big Bang made YG. The same goes for Winner and the members of the new group IKON.”
Mix & Match is a new survival battle program that YG Entertainment will be presenting a year since WIN: Who Is Next aired. It will feature the members of team B, namely Team B′s B.I, Bobby, Kim Jin Hwan, Song Yoon Hyung, Goo Joon Hee, Kim Dong Hyuk, as well as tree new trainees, Jung Jin Hyung, Jung Chan Woo and Yang Hong Suk, who will compete on the show.
The nine trainees will be competing with different combinations of members in a total of three round of matches. Two members will be eliminated and the other seven will be debuting.
Apart from the fixed members B.I, Bobby and Kim Jin Hwan, the other four members of YG’s new boy group will be selected through the judges’ votes (30%) and the viewers’ votes (70%).
