description
YG Entertainment, an entertainment company established by Yang Hyun Suk, of the popular Korean act Seo Tae Ji and Boys, has been at the forefront of the popularization of hip-hop music in Korea. From its inception, YG Entertainment has been the birthplace of some of Korea’s most popular and well-respected artists, from YG’s earlier artists such as JINUSEAN and 1TYM, to the immensely successful current acts, BIGBANG and 2NE1. The company has flourished by creating a family-like atmosphere where ideas on music, fashion, art and culture are exchanged freely between the artists, producers and staff members alike. The YG Family also includes a respected roster of actors and actresses, including actress and director, Ku Hye Sun, best known for the popular TV-drama “Boys Over Flowers” and Jung Hye Young.
