Yang Hyun Suk credits the wives of Psy and Tablo for the artists' decision to join YG Entertainment
YG Entertainment is definitely on a roll this year. Followed by the back to back successes of Big Bang and 2NE1, they've also hit jackpot with Psy's latest hit, in addition to more things to look forward to with G-Dragon's solo comeback and Epik High's grand return.
Although YG Entertainment is responsible for the birth and success of Big Bang and 2NE1, Psy and Tablo already had established careers before making the transition into the company. What do they have in common?
In his latest interview with OSEN, Yang Hyun Suk credited their wives. He stated, "One of the major reasons that Psy and Tablo decided to join YG was due to the support and dedication of their wives."
Psy had maintained a hyung and dongseng relationship with Yang Hyun Suk while running his own company in addition to keeping up with his rap career before he decided that it was too much to handle at once. While looking for a way out, his wife suggested that he join YG Entertainment. Psy eventually complied and met with Yang Hyun Suk, reasoning, "Instead of business, I want to achieve bigger dreams as an artist under the secure system of YG."
By using Yang Hyun Suk's advice to "return to his roots", Psy managed to conquer the summer market with "Gangnam Style" in just two years.
As for Tablo, his wife Kang Hye Jung is an actress under the company and actively suggested that her husband sign a contract with the agency. Having suffered from haters and lawsuits surrounding his educational history, Tablo had nearly given up on his career as an artist and composer before he was able to blossom once more as a solo artist under YG.
Yang Hyun Suk concluded, "Psy and Tablo are truly talented musicians. It's a joy to be able to work with them. I'd like to express my gratitude once again to their wives for trusting YG and pushing them with support towards us."
