MTV Korea is airing the success story of YG Entertainment, the label that houses big names in the Korean music scene like Se7en, Gummy and BIG BANG.
“MTV Ultimate” is airing episodes on 3 major labels in Korea and Yang Hyun Suk’s YG Entertainment is first in line. The episode will showcase YG’s 10 years in developing hip hop and urban music in Korea.
Yang Hyun Suk’s company did not rise to fame in an instant. In fact, YG Entertainment’s first group called Keep Six was not able to appeal to the public. He then earned success with YG Family’s first generation artist Jinusean and later with hip hop group 1TYM and hip hop and R&B singers like Wheesung, Gummy, Big Mama, Lexy, Se7en, BIG BANG and Stony Skunk. These artists are collectively known as the “YG Family.”
MTV Ultimate’s episode on YG Entertainment will be aired on the 22nd at 10:50 pm, followed by Lee Soo Man’s SM Entertainment on the 29th and Park Jin Young’s JYP Entertainment on April 5.
