[INTERVIEW] 170724 Osen: Waiting Room Attack – SBS Inkigayo MCs JinJiDo

GOT7 Jinyoung, BLACKPINK Jisoo, NCT Doyoung, who are in charge of hosting SBS ‘Inkigayo’, are all well-known idols. As much as the big amount of love they receive, they’re also pressed by their busy schedules. However, the three of them presented themselves well with the fans, actively promoting and doing what they like. People naturally smile when they see the bright and healthy appearances of these 3.

[YG-LIFE] 170627 Why YANG HYUN SUK is Asking Favors to Have BLACKPINK on Knowing Bros

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.”
