13 members of YG Entertainment will be on SBS‘s variety show “Strong Heart“, including Big Bang, 2NE1, Se7en, Tablo, Psy, and Gummy.
On the 5th, SBS confirmed to OSEN through a phone call saying “All of Big Bang and 2NE1’s members, along with Se7en, Tablo, Psy, and Gummy have been confirmed to feature on ‘Strong Heart‘.”
They also said “As a YG Special, there will be many new and truthful stories and episodes that have happened within the company.“
Furthermore “‘Strong Heart-YG Special‘ will be filmed on the 15th, and released on the 27th and 3rd of April, broken into two episodes.”
Singer Gummy shared a photo of herself enjoying a fun recording session with some of her fellow YG Entertainment label mates.
The singer shared the above photo via her official me2day page on the 18th and wrote, “The newest voices of YG Entertainment has gathered to record a group chorus! I can’t reveal their faces just yet!”
She continued, “Our YG staff members stayed up so late to help us record! What do you guys want to eat? Oh, this is the life!”
In the photo, Gummy is wearing a grey hoodie with the hood over her head, and is standing before the recording microphone with a hilarious expression on her face.
Big Bang’s T.O.P revealed the circumstances of how his collaboration with Gummy for “I Am a Singer” came to be.
T.O.P appeared on the December 11th broadcast of MBC‘s “I Am a Singer,” in support of fellow YG artist and senior, Gummy. In this “Sanulrim Special,” T.O.P joined Gummy on stage as the featuring rapper in her 2nd challenge performance of “Rascal.”
T.O.P explained that he felt bad seeing that Gummy was in 7th place, and decided to participate so that he could help. To this, Gummy explained, “T.O.P and I fit each other musically. The lyrics for the rap portion of the ‘Rascal’ stage were written by T.O.P himself.”
Gummy performed “Rascal” before Kim Changwan, the vocalist of Sanulrim, starting with a fantasy-like atmosphere then switching to a lighthearted rhythm, adding cuteness to the song. Kim Changwan praised her for the performance, saying that she managed to understand the original song perfectly, and that there was even more of a feeling of freedom as compared to the original song.
