Yang Hyun Suk sheds tears as he compares Big Bang and ‘K-Pop Star’ SuPearls


 
YG Entertainment CEO and ‘K-Pop Star’ judge, Yang Hyun Suk, shed tears during the February 4th broadcast of the program. While he’s previously stated that “emotions should not interfere with the decisions made in the show,” Yang found that he couldn’t stop tears from brimming as he observed the passion of the contestants.

The emotional response stems from YG Entertainment’s early years. Yang founded the company in hopes of scouting talented star-hopefuls who would help the K-Pop industry to advance and prosper. This same motive allowed him to become one of three judges for SBS‘s audition program.

Yet Yang’s method of looking for “quality over quantity” has caused him much grief. Yang stated that he was at first skeptical about debuting Big Bang, as there were much talk on whether or not the group would survive in the idol industry. As he watched over the contestants on ‘K-Pop Star’, Yang said that he felt the same about SuPearls, a group assembled by several contestants on the show.

“At first, I was worried for the SuPearls members,” says Yang, “I thought their skills were not polished enough to guide them through the competition and that they would not be able to develop their skills in such a short time.”

“J.Y. Park & I are like brothers,” says YG on ‘K-POP Star’ tension concerns

Yang Hyun Suk spoke up recently to assure fans that although he and J.Y. Park may not see eye-to-eye all the time when judging contestants, they’re still as close as ever.

The two producers, along with singer BoA of SM Entertainment, became judges for SBS‘s new survival audition contest, ‘K-POP Star‘. The atmosphere was fairly comfortable until the most recent episode, when viewers saw Yang Hyun Suk and J.Y. Park butt heads over the star quality of some contestants.

It began with French contestant Julie, to whom J.Y. Park said, I love singers who look comfortable on stage. However, I do not enjoy watching those who cannot sing be that comfortable. Yang, however, disagreed. I think differently. You have an amazing voice, he said.

For contestant Kim Ha Eun, Yang stated, I was more attracted to your pansori (Korean traditional music) act than your singing. You should stay on that road instead, while J.Y. Park expressed, You were so good. I feel like your pansori style is very similar to R&B/soul, and you nailed it.”
