During the interview with Yonhap News on 17th of January, YG Entertainment boss Yang Hyun Suk revealed his thoughts about 2NE1‘s disbandment, BIGBANG‘s 2017 year ahead plans, political scandals and more.
When the interviewers asked about 2NE1‘s shocking disbandment, this is what YG head said;
“When Gong Minzy moved to a different agency, I wanted to save 2NE1. What led to the decision to disband the group was the state of Park Bom’s mental health. After ‘the incident (Park Bom’s drug scandal),’ the criticisms we received were endless. But in addition to the stress and guilt from that, I’m sure Park Bom would have felt a strong determination to continue 2NE1. I told her, 2NE1 is important, but I wish for you to be healthy, both mentally and physically.
However, after he adding this, 2NE1 fans can have another hope.
“You never know what can happen; it’s possible they’ll get back together like S.E.S. It may not be as long of a break [as S.E.S], but I’m thinking there’ll be a day when the reunion happens.”
Then Yang Hyun Suk talked about Kpop legends- BIGBANG‘s plans including hiatus and solo activities. He said,
“BIGBANG has grown to a scale the likes of which I never imagined. Everyone is worried about BIGBANG going on hiatus. But the members have their own, very successful, solo careers. They’ll be focusing on solo promotions this year; G-Dragon’s passion for his solo work is outstanding, and Seungri is preparing a solo album for March. Daesung will be doing a dome tour in Japan, and Taeyang is also preparing a solo album”.
YG also revealed the truth behind the political rumors he involved with lately.
“Being in the entertainment business, I was careful about leaning toward one side or another, so I purposefully avoided [politics]. There was a time during President Lee Myung Bak’s administration when I was to receive a presidential award, but I didn’t even go because I didn’t want to take my hat off. They came and delivered it to my office. I’m so busy doing what I love; I have no interest in things related to politics”.
