YG Entertainment uploaded a teaser video titled “YG 전략자료실” (YG Strategy Center) today to announce that YG will be making a new reality show.
“YG전자” (YG SC) is the shortened name of the show, which is titled “YG 전략자료실” (YG Strategy Center). It is a reality show that is based on what actually happened within YG.
The director of the show is Park Jun-su, who has made a name for himself by directing the God of Music series, the UV Syndrome series, and Enemy of Broadcasting, in which he showed off his crude sense of humor and non-mainstream style. Park joined YG earlier this year, and it’s the first show that he will be directing under YG. Almost all YG artists will be appearing in the show, raising the expectations even more.
The teaser video features YG CEO Yang Hyunsuk, Jinu of JINUSEAN, BIGBANG’s Seungri, CL, WINNER, iKON, AKMU, Sechskies, BlackPink, Yoo Byungjae, and ONE. Other YG artists that did not appear in the teaser video are likely to appear in the show too.
Yang Hyunsuk is portrayed as someone to make fun of, Yoo Byungjae as someone who takes care of Yang Hyunsuk’s dog, Seungri as someone who wants to become the next Yang Hyun Suk, and Lee Jaejin as a whistle blower. Everyone in the show have different and distinctive personas, which makes the show even more interesting.
The cast made self-deprecating jokes and said, “YG is like North Korea” and “People become weird here”.
At the end of the video, there were funny subtitles that said “Expected to air in November (according to the boss)” and “the channel is not decided yet”. An YG official told Osen, “We’re currently in the planning stage, and the shooting may begin in September at the earliest. The exact air date and channel have not been decided yet.”
Expectations are running high for the chemistry between Park Junsu, the producer of God of Music and the best in lowbrow sitcoms, and YG artists.
