[NEWS] Yang Hyun Suk, “I don’t have the courage to make another group like Big Bang anymore.”

25 Feb

 

YG Entertainment’s CEO, Yang Hyun Suk (43), has revealed, “I don’t have the strength or courage to create a group like Big Bang anymore.” 

When CEO Yang recently held an interview at the Seoul Mapo-Gu YG Building, he stated, “Although I will be producing more groups in the future, I don’t think I will ever be able to find new group members that could harmonize with each other as well as Big Bang does. All of them match up to each other perfectly like a man and woman would do when they are in love.” 

According to his explanation, Big Bang may not be the best looking and may not be the best dancers out there, but each member holds a distinct individuality as a weapon that allows them to perform freely, which is the main reason why they receive so much love from their fans in and out of our country.

“Usually in both Korea and Japan, group dancing (synchronized dancing) is the most popular characteristic people look for in groups. However, Big Bang shows a lot of free moves and dances within their performances. That is why I think they receive a lot more response from different countries outside of Korea and Japan.” 

Considering these factors, Big Bang’s new mini-album ‘ALIVE’ holds many different genres of music to appeal to fans outside of Korea as well.

CEO Yang also stated that, “Aiming to make a musical change and living up to the focal point, this is an album with comprehensive genres” and that “in order to let each of these songs shine it’s own special light, we have decided to make all six songs the title song.” 

Currently, to let the world know of these songs, Big Bang has been undergoing multi-directional promotions.

On the past 22nd, one of their songs titled “BLUE” was the first to be released and has taken over the #1 spot on all music charts and the rest of the song’s teasers have been planned to be revealed through TV advertisements starting on the 24th.

The order of these releases are as follows: 24th ‘Love Dust’, 25th ‘Bad Boy’, 26th ‘Ain’t No Fun’, 27th ‘Fantastic Baby’, and the 28th ‘Wings’.

CEO Yang elaborated, “Having all the songs from the album be title songs might be, needless to say, the first to set precedent within the country” and that, “Choosing only one song to perform on music show programs to win the #1 spot is meaningless now, in my opinion. What’s more important is that we need to let everyone know of this brand called Big Bang and let everyone know of every song on their album.” 

Big Bang’s new mini-album will be released on the 29th, as well as the group’s comeback concert (on March 2-4) at the Olympic Sports Stadium.
