B.I Reminds Yang Hyun Suk of Big Bang’s G-Dragon
YG Entertainment’s head producer Yang Hyun Suk praised team B’s leader B.I’s abilities.
During the press conference for the new survival program Mix & Match, Yang Hyun Suk said, “I can’t help but to like B.I. He is the leader that leads team B. And he keeps reminding me of the time I saw Big Bang’s G-Dragon a long time ago.”
Yang Hyun Suk continued, “B.I has been showing great song writing abilities. It’s important to be a singer but it’s also important to be a good producer. Actually, it might be more important these days.”
Yang Hyun Suk added, “As with Big Bang, I hope that iKON can also become an artist-idol group that has the ability to produce 100% of its albums. I think that B.I has a great ability as a songwriter. This is something that all the producers at YG and the Big Bang members have agreed on, so I can’t help but to cherish him.”
Meanwhile, 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 three 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%).
Mix & Match will air on September 11 through Mnet and Naver.
