According to YG Entertainment, March will be a busy month for the agency as they plan to put out three albums!
We are already expecting ‘monster rookie’ ‘Lee Hi‘s album in March, but according to a statement by Yang Hyun Suk himself, there are also two more albums in store, one from G-Dragon, and one from 2NE1.
Yang Hyun Suk has directly participated in the recording process and music video filming of Lee Hi’s newest song, which he believes will be an even bigger hit than “1,2,3,4“. “Personally, I think it’s even better than ’1,2,3,4′. As one listener, it seems like when I’m highly satisfied with something, the fans also have positive responses to it as well… Lee Hi’s tone and her feel possess individuality and charm that are hard to find in other singers, and we have found a song that suits her perfectly,” he commented.
Apparently, joining Lee Hi with her March comeback will be G-Dragon with his new solo album, and 2NE1′s long-awaited comeback album. Yang Hyun Suk shared, “YG style is one in which we try to hurry as much as possible, but never so in a way that we harm the completion level of a project to meet a set date… We want to make the albums being released in March, from G-Dragon, 2NE1, as well as Lee Hi, to be ones that fans will want to keep and cherish.”
Although the agency had previously mentioned a solo album for Taeyang was getting ready for release, along with 2NE1′s album, back in 2012, it seems plans have changed for G-Dragon is said to be the one releasing a solo album in March.
The agency is also busy preparing their new girl group, as well as the solo debut of Kang Seung Yoon, and their upcoming boy group, putting a lot on their plate.
On the topic of their rookies, a representative from the agency commented, “Rookie groups are directly managed by Yang Hyun Suk for about three years. After that, he lets them be self-reliant and entrusts them with the responsibility. YG’s method is like that of a parent who protects and teaches their children, and after three years, as they become adults, lets them reach toward their dreams on their own. “
