News: Louis Vuitton Seeks Massive Investment in YG Entertainment

Louis Vuitton seeks massive investment in YG Entertainment


The world’s top-notch luxury brand group LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton is on track to make a large scale investment in the 100 billion won range ($1=KRW970) in South Korea’s one of the top three entertainment companies YG Entertainment. The deal, if materialized, will become the first-ever for overseas luxury brand group to invest in the nation’s entertainment company. Reportedly, Louis Vuitton seeks business partnership rather than attempting to acquire management rights or make profits.

LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton is the world’s leading luxury group whose brands include Bulgari and TAG Heuer while YG Entertainment has led the Korean pop culture across Asia with famous singers like Psy, Big Bang and 2NEI. The deal will likely help the two to create significant synergies in expanding their business.

LCapital Asia, a private equity firm (PEF) backed by Louis Vuitton group, is in last-stage negotiations to invest in YG Entertainment, according to investment banking industry in Hong Kong Tuesday. LCapital will likely decide on new rights issue in a third party allocation and invest worth at least 100 billion won, representing around 20 percent of YG Entertainment’s market capitalization worth 571.4 billion won.

The two are fine-tuning how much and how Louis Vuitton will invest after beginning negotiations secretly around June. Reportedly, they will likely opt for a third party allotment rights issue involving redeemable cumulative preference shares (RCPS).

News: YG Life – “2NE1’s ‘I Am The Best,’ BGM of Microsoft Ad”



[텐아시아 = 장서윤 기자] 2NE1 is arousing much attention as their song “I AM THE BEST” was chosen as the theme song of an ad created by one of world’s largest companies, America’s Microsoft.

The song will be used as the BGM of a tablet PC commercial video clip of Microsoft from August 11 (local date). Viewers will hear the music for the next 6 months on TV and on other media for one year when the commercial is played.

YG Entertainment responded, “Microsoft contacted us through their ad agency to say that they want to use the song as their BGM. The electronic and hiphop-influenced song was released in June 2011, and it crosses over to genres of reggae and African rhythm. At the time of release, it received high praises for expressing 2NE1’s colors well, and swept across music markets home and abroad.”

2NE1 unveiled their 2nd full album “CRUSH” this year, and their active promotion led them to be the first South Korean artists to enter Billboard 200 by ranking #61. They re-wrote the history of K-Pop. They also carried out their 2nd World Tour “ALL OR NOTHING.”

News: Yang Hyun Suk Discusses Future Plans for WINNER + Park Bom and Dara’s variety show talents

Sorry but I have to disagree with YG. I really think Dara is funny, even YG himself admitted it in 2NE1tv. But I also know that Dara will be better with a drama. If only YG would allow her to do one. T_T

News: Yang Hyun Suk Discusses Future Plans for WINNER + Park Bom and Dara’s variety show talents


On August 6, the launching show ‘2014 S/S GRAND LAUNCH‘ for WINNER’s debut album took place at the Grand Ballroom at the Conrad Seoul Hotel where Yang Hyun Suk spoke about his future plans for the group in front of the media.

He said, “Kang Seung Yoon appeared on MBC sitcom ‘High Kick 3,’ and I thought he was good at acting.  Honestly, I think YG is branded as a company that is immensely tight fisted when it comes to variety programs.  There was that tendency in the cases of Big Bang and 2NE1.

As Park Bom appeared in SBS‘s ‘Roommate,’ Yang Hyun Suk was asked, “Did Park Bom appear on variety because she personally wanted to?

Yang Hyun Suk replied, “In Park Bom’s case, she was someone who was very funny in the reality program ‘2NE1 TV.’  Park Bom and Dara always expressed their wish to go on a lot of variety shows.  I think that’s how she came to be on a program in which the camera follows her around.  Dara says she wants to go on a lot of variety shows, but in my opinion, Dara isn’t that funny.”
