YG’s leader YANG HYUN SUK announced that BLACKPINK does not have a leader.
On August 8, the showcase of BLACKPINK’s debut single album “SQUARE ONE” was held at a studio in Sinsa-dong. BLACKPINK is YG Entertainment’s first new girl group in seven years.
When asked why he has put so much effort into BLACKPINK, YANG HYUN SUK answered, “I have one daughter and one son. It’s not that I don’t care about WINNER or iKON. I did put a lot of effort into them too behind the stage when they were doing the survival shows. BIGBANG and 2NE1 both did pre-debut shows to make them known to the public, but BLACKPINK didn’t do one. So, I’m a bit anxious.”
He went on to say, “It is as five times as hard to make a girl group than a boy group. There are lots of things to take care of and to reinforce. I’ve been watching BLACKPINK members train for six years, and I believe they are up to the task.”
“BLACKPINK doesn’t have a leader. They are the first YG team without a leader. I didn’t want them to have a leader because I want all of them to be like friends, work things out among themselves so that they can come up with better results” added YANG HYUN SUK.
