YANG HYUN SUK talked about the reason why BLACKPINK’s debut was so delayed.
On August 8, at a studio in Sinsa-dong, Seoul, the showcase of BLACKPINK’s debut single album “SQUARE ONE” was held.
YANG HYUN SUK started off by saying, “I think it was like four years ago when I said I would debut them.”
He went on to say, “The biggest complaint we receive from fans is that YG artists release so few new songs. We’re working hard to satisfy the fans but YG artists themselves have to be satisfied with the music that they release first. The staff and I have to like the music too. We have worked under such system for 20 years.”
“Compared with 20 years ago, YG has become 100 times bigger. Creating contents is not something that you can put a time limit on. I will always try to make perfect music even if people resent me for it.”
Meanwhile, BLACKPINK is a four-member girl group consisting of JISOO, JENNIE, ROSÉ, and LISA. The average age of the members is 19, and they have all gone through rigorous training at YG from four to six years. BLACKPINK’s debut singles—“BOOMBAYA” and “WHISTLE”—and the music videos will be released at 8 PM on August 8.
