YG Entertainment will make its own variety show.
Sources told Daily Sports on August 19, “YG will make its first variety show with SBS. They both wanted to make a good show and decided to do it together. Soon, viewers will be able to watch a YG-made variety show.”
Established in 1996, YG Entertainment has produced top stars including BIGBANG, 2NE1, WINNER, iKON, and BLACKPINK, but it is the first time that it jumped into making variety shows. The entertainment industry is watching YG’s unusual move with keen interest. Some are envious that YG has grown so big that it is expanding its business to include making variety shows. YG is determined to make a new type of variety show and become an all-round entertainment company.
YG celebrated its 20th anniversary in May this year. It has produced top singers such as JINUSEAN, 1TYM, BIGBANG, 2NE1, WINNER, iKON, and BLACKPINK and made PSY into a global star. Recently, it began representing not only singers but also top celebrities. CHA SEUNG WON, KANG DON WON, KIM HEE AE, CHOI JI WOO, AHN YOUNG MI, and YOO BYUNG JAE are currently signed to the company.
