YG Entertainment’s upcoming sitcom “YG Future Strategy Office” has released a hilarious new trailer!
The mockumentary sitcom stars BIGBANG’s Seungri as a highly ambitious employee who ends up relegated to the YG Future Strategy Office, a powerless department staffed by the company’s outsiders. In the new trailer, Seungri proudly boasts about the office’s importance within the company, while various real-life YG Entertainment employees share their less-than-flattering opinions of Seungri’s personality.
The star-studded trailer also features glimpses of iKON, BLACKPINK, Sunmi, Yoo Byung Jae, SECHSKIES’s Lee Jae Jin, and even Yang Hyun Suk himself—none of whom appear to be on Seungri’s side.
“YG Future Strategy Office” will be released on Netflix on October 5. In the meantime, check out the new trailer below!
