YG Entertainment CEO YANG HYUN SUK uploaded a meaningful post on his SNS page.
On June 27, YANG HYUN SUK posted a screenshot of a fan’s message on his Instagram page. The fan messaged that BLACKPINK should go on JTBC’s Knowing Bros, and YANG HYUN SUK replied by posting “I’m trying really hard. First time asking a favor in 17 years.”
Usually, YANG HYUN SUK doesn’t do work related to YG musician’s TV show appearances. However, it seems as if YANG HYUN SUK has actually stepped in this time to help BLACKPINK go on Knowing Bros.
Although BLACKPINK’s debut was less than a year ago, the music video of the group’s new song “As If It’s Your Last” hit 37.47 million views in just 107 hours after its release. The music video posted 10 million views in 17 hours and 20 million in 47 hours. BLACKPINK has set a new record of surpassing the 30 million mark in the shortest time among K-pop groups.
Upon comeback, BLACKPINK’s new song swept Korea’s real-time, daily and weekly charts and became No.1 on the New Songs Chart of QQ Music, China’s largest music steaming platform that has 40 billion monthly subscribers. BLACKPINK is also setting new records: it became the first K-pop group to have a single topping the iTunes chart in 18 countries and chosen as US Apple Music’s Best of the Week.
BLACKPINK put on its comeback stage on MBC’s Music Core on June 24. The group will be going on a number of music and variety shows and radio programs to promote their new song.
