Yang Hyun Suk has spoken up about the rumors relating YG Entertainment and the current President scandal.
As the controversy regarding Choi Soon-Sil and President Park Geun Hye grew, the entertainment industry, especially YG Entertainment, was also brought into the issue. Rumors speculated a relation between YG and the President scandal. Disptach even published an exclusive report explaining YG's possible relation to the controversy.
On November 10 during a press conference for SBS 'K-Pop Star 6', one reporter gave Yang Hyun Suk a question hinting at the rumors and asked, "Nothing's going to make you leave during the show, right?"
Yang Hyun Suk answered with a smile, '"There will not be a departure in the middle [of the show]." He then expressed frustration as he added, "I don't understand why people believe such rumors. There's 0% relation. I haven't seen director Cha Eun Taek (the figure who's speculated to have been the 'tie' between YG and Choi Soon-Sil), for more than 10 years. It's not worth explaining myself on such things, and it's also an awkward point."
