For the first time ever, Billboard created an “International Power Players” list, for leaders in the music business who have made a significant change in the dynamics of the industry.
Yang Hyun Suk, was the first and only South Korean mentioned on the list. He was placed amongst top notch professionals such as, “AVEX’s CEO Matsuura, Sony Music’s UK CEO Nick Gatfield, SYCO Entertainment CEO Simon Cowell, and Live Nation Europe John Reid“.
Along with the mentioning of the YG CEO/Founder, YG artists were also given the spotlight, for their borderless achievements and popularity within the past few years.
Ever since Psy became an international sensation, Yang feels as though eyes were brought on over to other artists such as BIGBANG and 2NE1.
