Theme: Chuseok

The full moon slowly rises, and the cold wind blows by
All the family members gathered in one place, making rice cakes side by side, and eating them side by side
In front of the TV on Friday nights
Let’s have a fun Chuseok with WIN!

From Bobby

Hello everyone~
This is team A’s lucky charm and singer, the spontaneous “man” – Kang Seung Yoon!!

The time for Chuseok has come.
It seemed like only yesterday when the WIN show first started to broadcast, and was so sweltering hot everyday. But in a blink of an eye, autumn is already here. Everyone will be going back to see their relatives?

Thinking about those who don’t have the opportunity to go back home to spend it with their families, I feel sad. I hope that this letter will give you some strength ㅠㅠ It’ll be nice if everyone has a happy autumn

Eat a lot of delicious food with the family you haven’t seen in a long time, and spend a joyful time with them as well.

Have a happy Chuseok~

I hope that everyone will have a happy and prosperous Chuseok!
I’ve always been grateful to everyone, I love you!!!

I can have a happy Chuseok as long as everyone has a happy Chuseok.

From Seungyoon

[NEWS] 130816 ‘WIN’ Program to Air on Mnet + tvN on August 23

YG’s founder YANG HYUN SUK to reveal the 11 members for the first time at Production Sneak Preview on August 20

The survival program that determines the formation of YG’s first new boy group since BIGBANG 7 years ago will be aired on August 23 at 10 p.m. on Mnet and tvN simultaneously. The program is called ‘WIN’, each letter stands for ‘WHO IS NEXT?’
‘WIN Survival’ will have 2 teams: Group A consists 5 members including the ex-contestant of Superstar K2 and the recently debuted KANG SEUNG YOON, and the ex-contestant of K-Pop Star, LEE SEUNG HOON. The average age is 20 years old. Group B consists of 6 members with an average age of 17 years old, and among them is the then 12-year-old boy rapper B.I who featured in MC Mong’s ‘Indian Boy’, and Koo Jun-hee, another ex-contestant of K-Pop Star. The two groups are in for a fierce battle. It is a real survival show. The 10-episode show is gaining much attention as it will be aired at evening prime time on Friday simultaneously on Mnet and tvN, which are known for their extremely popular shows ‘Superstar K’ and ‘Grandpa over Flowers’.
YG’s long-year trainees will be divided into Groups A and B for a real battle, and the result depends solely on the viewers, which is different to other audition programs. The show will keep everyone on their toes as YG themselves do not know who the winner is going to be. 
The winning group will be given the chance to make a debut immediately after the program finishes, under the group name WINNER. The losing team will not be able to make a debut for an indefinite amount of time. The show will reflect the cold and harsh reality of the professional music world.
A few weeks back, Group A with KANG SEUNG YOON aroused much attention when they released the choreography video. On August 20 (Tues), ‘WIN’ will have its production sneak preview at Seoul Yeouido’s Conrad Hotel. At the preview, YG Entertainment’s founder Yang Hyun Suk will be revealing the 11 members of Groups A and B. He will also lay further details and explain the intentions of this program. 
The program itself is expected to draw attention not only from South Korea but from abroad as well because this is the first boy group by YG since BIGBANG’s debut 7 years ago.
Many are interested in YG’s new boy group since the entertainment agency already boasts a remarkable performance with its existing boy group BIGBANG, who, apart from being the top boy group in South Korea, were the first South Korean artists to hold World Tour joined by 800,000 fans. In November, in just one year since the big tour, at Japan’s largest Dome tour, BIGBANG will be joined by 730,000 fans. BIGBANG positioned themselves as an icon of Asia, performing on a scale and securing a market and a fan base that even overseas stars cannot easily achieve. 
BIGBANG members will be overlooking the fellow trainees from YG battling on WIN program.
G-DRAGON will be using his upcoming introduction song ‘LET’S SHAKE THE WORLD‘ in his solo album as the title song for ‘WIN’ program, while he and TAEYANG, who spent the longest time training at YG, will be involved in the battle of Groups A and B to help them produce songs and give advice.  
Many are keen to see what kind of changes will occur in the South Korean music market with the birth of WIN’s final winner, and if they could be as excellent as BIGBANG.
WIN will be unveiled on August 23 at 10 p.m., simultaneously on Mnet and tvN. Many prominent companies will be involved in the program as well. The show will include subtitle services for overseas fans including Japanese and Chinese. The large-scale project will be aired to the international fans all at the same time.
Further details will be announced by YG’s CEO YANG HYUN-SUK at the production sneak preview of WIN on August 20, Tuesday.

Any plans for KANG SEUNG YOON to appear on TV after the release of “WILD AND YOUNG” on July 31?

We are planning to carry out PR on television for KANG SEUNG YOON, starting from Inkigayo on August 4 with his “WILD AND YOUNG” performance.

But since KANG SEUNG YOON is busy filming the survival program ‘WIN’ with other trainees from YG in preparation to form a boy group, we have to coordinate his TV program schedule carefully.

Tell us some untold stories behind “WILD AND YOUNG”!

Actually the song “WILD AND YOUNG” is a product of YG’s main producer Teddy 2 years ago. So the song was produced without having KANG SEUNG YOON in mind.

Back then we already had the lyrics and demonstration tape completed, but as the song did not exactly fit into the style of YG artists, we could not find its ‘owner’. When KANG SEUNG YOON came in to record a different song, we just asked him to sing the first verse of Teddy’s song. When he heard him sing it was like finding the last piece of the puzzle. We immediately decided this would be the first title song for his solo debut.

How many title songs will KANG SEUNG YOON release?

LEE HI, who made a debut early this year, released 3 title songs and music videos “1,2,3,4”, “IT’S OVER”, and “ROSE” from her first album and made TV appearances with those songs. We are planning to do the same for KANG SEUNG YOON and release 3 title songs.

In a nutshell, after releasing “WILD AND YOUNG” on July 31, he will be releasing two other title songs, each in August and September.

All three songs were produced by different composers, but one interesting feature is that KANG SEUNG YOON’s third title song is written by G-DRAGON.

Because G-DRAGON and TAEYANG trained at YG for so long they understand what the trainees go through during the preparation process. So when G-DRAGON heard KANG SEUNG YOON’s demonstration tape, he kindly wrote the lyrics to the song without a moment of hesitation.

To be continued…

2013 . 07.23  FROM YG


From LEE HI to KANG SEUNG YOON, YG Entertainment is writing a success story by making the songs of audition program stars to top the real-time music charts.

LEE HI, who came in second in the SBS “KPOP STAR” real survival audition program, topped the music charts last fall when she first debuted and also earlier this year with a new song. On the other hand, KANG SEUNG YOON, who came in fourth in the Mnet “Superstar K2” audition program, also topped the music charts with his new single “IT RAINS.” YG Entertainment’s LEE HI and KANG SEUNG YOON’s consecutive home runs in the music chars are being considered as successful case in the music industry, when it is rare for audition program stars to make a big hit in the music charts.

After gaining popularity from “Superstar K2,” KANG signed a contract with YG Entertainment as a trainee. With his debut song, KANG is ranking first in music charts three days in a row, making a huge hit. On July 18, KANG’s new song, “IT RAINS,” topped major real-time music charts, including Melon, Mnet, Bugs, Soribada, Olleh, and Daum.

“IT RAINS” is a rock ballad song that captivated music fans’ hearts with its melody and lyrics that fit perfectly with the rainy season. YG Entertainment picked a perfect timing and song for KANG’s debut, which showed YG Entertainment’s great PR ability.

Making an amazing debut with the song “IT RAINS” after long years of training period, KANG attracted much attention by revealing a surprising video message on YG Entertainment’s official blog site (www.yg-life.com) to thank his fans.

YG Entertainment’s success story of real-survival audition program stars does not end with LEE HI and KANG SEUNG YOON. Many other audition program singers are training hard at YG, such as AKDONG MUSICIAN, BANG YEDAM, and LEE SEUNG HOON, so music fans are awaiting for their debuts.
