Kang Dong Won opened up about being an actor under YG Entertainment.


In a recent interview, Kang Dong Won talked about his label which he signed on with early this year. He said, "I was aware but YG really doesn't interfere. I actually really hate interference. My mom doesn't even interfere [with my business]. YG doesn't touch on me to the point where I go, 'Is it ok for them to not interfere this much?'"

He also revealed that he has only been to the YG building twice. Kang Dong Won explained, "I've been to the office only twice. I went because they said I should come at least once since I signed the contract. I was curious about the cafeteria, too. (laugh). Another time I visited was when I was near the office and had to go to the bathroom really bad. (laugh)"

    YG has a very relax atmosphere thts why a lot of actors and actresses signed to them.. they give them much freedom they want to the point actors are worried of their own actions.. that is maybe why YGs official statements are so narrow and unclear because they didnt really interfere in ones personal lives.. but the idol life is another thing.. since they are and their personal lives are more focused by the fans.. but their releases is another thing its way to relax thats why the dungeon was made.. kekekee

    Pros: They give you freedom to write & produce your own music. Cons: If YG doesn't like/enjoy the song you will be trap in the dugeon (unless, well you write a good song lol; maybe not a con? neutral? fxxxk it) They don't let you go on variety shows that much (is it still the same now? big bang aside).You gotta keep this : "mysterious image" bs. Favoritism (although other agencies have it as well)Conclusion: GO TO YG IF YOU'RE PURSUING ACTING. for music as well but just know you'll be trap there until you come up with quality music. . .

    Hey at least whatever song i put out will get independant recognition since dropping a full album with onlyb1-2 title promos would make me feel my other preferred songs wont b heard by the public. 2915 had winner everywhere they did varuety and this yr they did halfmoon friends abd bow ongoing thousand yrs love and little pribce. 2016 also had akmu and lee hi as fixed nembers on sketchbook and immortal song, lee hi got to sing alot since seolite even if theyre werentthat many weekly award show appearances bcz #businesspolitics and other music shows are buased and shitty stages, my point is, everyone in this industry know whats going on in which company and chise to debut there as idols. For qctors and models and beauty products, YG is really doing well. Hell im happy with letting their idols appear on shows more

    I doubt the same thing could be said of their idols except for Big Bang.

    Doesn't really seem like it even with the idols; maybe for the newer ones. The only time I see YG interfere is if it has anything related to album production and by that I mean that he keeps pestering people to write more songs. I've seen it happen with Epik High and GD
