“2NE1 Are Not Pretty”…. Yang Hyun Suk, “Cool Is Better”
YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk (43) publicly declares that he doesn’t find 2NE1 pretty.
On the 21st, Yang Hyun Suk appeared as the guest on the SBS show, “Healing Camp.” When asked by the show MCs, “What criteria do you have in choosing artists?” the YGE CEO replied with, “The rumors that I did not look at appearances when choosing 2NE1 and Big Bang are not true, in reality, I do look at appearance also. During audtions I also look at their appearance, aside from the voices,” he confessed.
Comparing them to other girl groups, the looks of YG’s girl group, 2NE1, is surely different, and he says that he is aware of the comments. In fact, Yang Hyun Suk said, “It’s true that 2NE1 are not pretty,” he said in his frank manner, drawing laughter from the MCs. He went on to say that, “In fact, 2NE1 members are not tall, and they don’t have average pretty faces. But more importantly, I think they’re cool.”
He goes on to say, “I think that a cool person is better than just being pretty,” he said, “2NE1’s CL and Gong Minzy have charisma. It’s cool. It’s my style,” he confirmed.
