YG Entertainment Moving to Own Company Building

2010/01/08 | 2154 views | Permalink | Source

YG Entertainment, which represents entertainers Se7en, Big Bang, and 2NE1, will move to a seven-story office building of its own in Hapjeong-dong Mapo-gu at the end of January.

YG Entertainment CEO and co-founder Yang Goon said, "It has been 12 years since we established the agency. We would like to reestablish our determination by trying to remember when we first begin".

Yang launched the business under the name of Yang Goon Production in the basement of a small building in Hapjeong-dong in 1997 after the breakup of Seo Taiji & Boys. YG's upcoming move holds special meaning for Yang because he will be moving into an office building of his own after spending 12 years in a building with a monthly rent.

Yang said on the phone, "I, along with two other people, established YG in a small building in 1997. We have rented additional space in line with the growth of YG over the years. However, we had many difficulties because the office and the training room were in separate buildings. We will work harder to remember when we first started YG because now all of our singers and staff will be able to get together in the same place".

Yang said they have plans to release new albums by Se7en, Big Bang, and 2NE1 once they finish the move. In addition, Yang said they have high expectations for the Japanese music scene since the group Big Bang took the "Best New Artist Award" at the 51st Japan Record Awards and at the 42nd Japan Yusen Awards last year.

However, Yang emphasized, "The construction of new buildings, including the training room and the recording studio, is aimed at developing unknown talented singers. Our biggest goal for this year is to discover and nurture beginners who are as talented as Big Bang's G-Dragon and Taeyang".
