YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk revealed the reasons behind refusing to drink with Big Bang.
Ahead of YG’s appearance, J.Y. Park had claimed that Yang Hyun Suk was extremely strict with his label artists, and that he keeps his distance from them. “I thought he would display that side of himself on ‘K-Pop Star‘, but he was concerned over how nervous the contestants were,” explaining that he was frustrated over YG’s image on ‘K-Pop Star’.
“J.Y. Park is right, I am an intimidating personality within YG Entertainment,” Yang Hyun Suk admitted. “Big Bang and 2NE1 are professionals, so there would be some advantages for me to be a father figure to them. However, if that becomes the case, the managers will not be able to regulate. There needs to be at least one very intimidating person.”
“To be honest, I want to drink with Big Bang and go on trips with them,” he continued. “But we don’t. I’ve only drank with Big Bang once or twice in 7 years.”
