BIGBANG's Seungri says Yang Hyun Suk threw so many slippers at him when he was a trainee
On October 27, a press conference for JTBC's new survival program "Mix 9" was held in Seoul. The program is planned and produced by YG Entertainment, and as the judge of the program, Yang Hyun Suk attended the press conference. And BIGBANG's Seungri also attended the event to give support to the CEO of his agency. As you may know, in "Mix 9", Yang Hyun Suk visits various k-pop agencies throughout the country and finds and trains talented trainees.
Are you curious about what they talked about at the press conference? Well, check out what Seungri talked about the program and Yang Hyun Suk.
I've visited many k-pop agencies throughout the country, and it reminded me of when I was a trainee. Before I debuted, Yang Hyun Suk treated me with rigor. He threw many slippers at me, and I think I could open a shoe store if I'd collected all the slippers, haha. However, many CEOs of k-pop agencies I've visited were totally different from Yang Hyun Suk. They loved their trainees like their own children, and they even didn't say bad things to the trainees. Of course, I don't think it's good for trainees. As a member of BIGBANG, I tried to teach them all the know-how. I think "Mix 9" is not just an audition program but a treatment program. As a doctor of young trainees, I want to help them treat themselves. Even though I belong to YG Entertainment, I'll try to pick out people who have everything they need to become top k-pop stars. Their ability and appearance are important, but so is their personality.
