Yang Hyun Suk explains why he did not produce Akdong Musician's album

YG Entertainment's chief Yang Hyun Suk talked about Akdong Musician's recently released debut album 'Play' with TV Report, explaining why member Lee Chan Hyuk produced it in his stead.

He said, "Up to now, I was in charge of producing albums for many singers. However, Akdong Musician's was the hardest for me. The musical genres I had mainly worked with were hip hop and R&B. However, Akdong Musician's genre is folk. It was a genre I have never tried before, so it was only right that they did it themselves."

He continued, "The two members of Akdong Musician debuted at an extremely young age. This year, Chan Hyuk will be 17 and Soo Hyun will be 14. Because they are so young, if I were to order them to do this and that, their purity could get ruined. I decided it might actually be much more effective if the siblings personally [produced] it. As you can see by the results, this was verified after the album came out."

However, Yang Hyun Suk was put in charge of the choreography for Akdong Musician's "200%," proving he was still doing his best to support them in any way possible. He said, "Choreography is an area in which I am specialized, but Akdong Musician was unfamiliar with it. I made it so that it could naturally match well with their song on stage."

Do you think Yang Hyun Suk did a good job with the choreography?
