Yang Hyun Suk opens up about why he’s participating as a judge on ‘KPOP STAR’

YG Entertainment’s Yang Hyun Suk revealed some background information behind his decision to participate as a judge on SBS’s upcoming talent show, ‘KPOP STAR‘.

On August 28th, Yang Hyun Suk met with reporters after 2NE1’s concert and said, “The public’s interest in audition programs is huge. However, once stars leave the program, they aren’t able to make a noteworthy impact. I felt regretful that they couldn’t easily appear on music programs or expand their talents. That is why I decided to participate as a judge“.

Yang Hyun Suk, who established YG Entertainment and raised the power of his company, has agreed to pour out his experiences and know-hows on discovering a musician’s talent on ‘KPOP STAR’.

Yang stated “I want to help in getting ‘KPOP STAR’ to the best position possible. I do not want there to be any problems in their activities; I plan to consult with the production team to ensure that we can help show their talents and their star quality to their full capacity.” He added, “Even if they can’t sing or dance, it’s okay. More than someone who is good, I want to find someone with potential and help in strengthening in their talents. For decades, we have discovered kids with potential talent, so I feel confident in being able to find their hidden artistry“.

Yang Hyun Suk also revealed his plans for the contestants, saying, “Later, I intend on helping the picked contestants of ‘KPOP STAR’ get into the company of their choice. I will have the contestants decide their three preferred agencies, and have the agencies draft up a list of their three preferred contestants. If their preferences coincide, I plan to prepare a meeting for the two to consult and converse. The most important aspect of all this is that the picked contestants of ‘KPOP STAR’ will be making all the decisions.

It’s been quite a while since the CEO of YG Entertainment made a broadcast appearance, and according to him, it’s been weighing heavily on his mind.

He stated, “I realized that it’s been too long since I’ve been on broadcast television. Because I was so busy advancing my company and training musicians, I’ve been blind to everything else. I am delighted to be contributing as a judge on ‘KPOP STAR‘”. He also laughed, “I’ve never cared about my skin before, but lately I’ve been receiving skin treatments, so I think that I’m slightly nervous about my appearance“.

A press conference will be held on September 2nd at Seoul Nonhyun Imperial Palace, where Yang Hyun Suk and JYP Entertainment’s J.Y. Park plan on divulging details about their upcoming program.
