'A Hyung I Know' has jumped in ratings!

Psy appeared as a guest on the episode that aired on the 13th. The episode was packed full of hilarities, such as Heechul poking fun at Psy, the 'A Hyung I Know' members fighting among themselves to which one of them was the real 'Psy', and Psy performing his song "New Face" on the show.

SEE ALSO: Psy is 'Dazed' as the cover model for June!


The episode, as a result, recorded 6.99% in ratings according to Nielson Korea, the highest ever for the show.

    A Hyung I Know has the potential to become one of the legendary variety shows in Korea - it has the right people, the chemistry is good and their content is funny.

    Heechul keep making reference to Blackpink to Psy, maybe we can even see Blackpink on the show when they have a comeback.

    I dunno how is their variety sense, but i think The Cast of A Hyung I know should be able to help them out a bit, like how even "no jam" guests like Kangta, Seohyun and Irene (according to heechul, the top 3 not funny members in SM), he also can "handle" them, so i guess it should be ok for him. I think he briefly had some interaction with Jisoo of BlackPink when he MC-ed Inkigayo as Special MC in place of NCT's Doyoung.

    Back when they were doing the 5% promise, Yong Chul was even saying maybe we should set a 7% promise, lol looks like even the 7% rating is going to be surpassed.

    to be fair though, i dont think that many people really view PSY as a yg product. He is his own and he also has the best artist contract at YG where they get very little say in what he does and very little percentage of his income. Yes, he is a YG artist because he is under that label...but i wouldnt credit YG for anything PSY does or has done tbf

    Yg gets very little of everybody's funds. And everybody pretty much creates their own studf(except those bp chicks) they just can't always work when they want to. Psy is very yg yg is originality and legendary.

    psy actually joined YG only a few years ago. He was already a very established and successful solo artist by then so he is not that much YG at all. Compare him to people like GD, Black Pink, Seven, Gummy and such --- he is not YG as much as they are/were. Also, the others have good contracts too but the label still gets a lot of the income from those artists whereas for PSY he gets like 70% or more I think. Nobody else in YG is even close to that - except maybe Epik High (who were also established by the time they joined YG). The way you said that PSY is a YG artist and that's why he's really poppin is like saying Yoo Jae Suk is poppin coz he's in FNC.

    Akdong Musician is also another artist that isnt very YG-like, even though they write their own songs, but their song style is totally different from what YG produces like from GD or Teddy.

    AKMU is completely different from PSY. AKMU is definitely YG's product because they debuted under YG. Everyone is talented in YG & any other agency I expect. But a good portion of their success does come from their agency's backing. AKMU is no different from many other artists under YG

    Also that is why YG is considered one of the best, if not the best, agency in Korea. Not only their individuality, talent, and presence; but also their ability to excel in a variety of different types of music. Though they started off as a hip-hop label, they are so much more than that right now

    Yg doesn't have a style now both of y'all shut up. Psy ain't like hi and hi ain't like akmu and akmu ain't like bb and they ain't like winner or ikon. YGs thing is originality. Nothing else

    10% is really hard, each 1% they cross is like a mountain, from 7 to 10 isnt something easy to hit. I think its better for them to focus on targets like 7% or 8%, just because they can hit 7% in 1 episode with Psy, does mean they can maintain that 7% for in the long run, I think it tends to hit high % only on certain episodes. I hope they use their "Wild Cards" like their promises made by Rain, Kim Hee Sun and such, to have them make a return. lol it seems they are reserving it for when the show has low ratings and they can use it to call them back to save the ratings if and when it gets low.

    the thing is, using their wild card just to gain some % or to maintain their viewrate basically mean the show is dying or in need of change... and the show eventually will run out of famous guests, mean lower rating... they probably wont inv new idols either, who would want to watch some no name for an hour or 2.... so unless they have anotheraway to maintain the %, it will fall

    I only worry that as viewers raise their expectation for the show, it will get more and more stress on the writers and cast alike, the writers will be hard pressed to come up with new show concepts, while the cast will try to be funnier and think of new phrase and things to say. Right now the show has a "few" concepts, including Songtagram, Some kind of game or sports concept, like what they did with IOI or TWICE previously, moer physical and stamina related, at the ending, or a acting skit, which they tend to do with actress and actors, and there is no script etc. the kind of ending, depends largely on the guest they invite, for example like when Lee Kyung Kyu came, Songatram wont be ideal, since he isnt a singer, and the acting skit may not work since it has no script and he isnt an actor or good at acting, so they went with a "game" style of concept, and did that pushing you into the water kind of thing. While actor/actress tend to have acting skit at the ending, modelled after the drama they promoting, like Han Chae A and Kang Yewon, was promoting "Part time Spy" so the ending was a more James Bond concept acting skit, while singers like Im Chang Jung and AOA etc had Songatgram as the ending. I think some episodes also had a quiz at the ending.
