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

yang-hyun-suk-winner_1407336056_af_org

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.”

Interview: Super Junior’s Heechul Mentions Sandara Park on M&B Magazine Interview ~ It’s All in the Perspective

Kang Yong Seok Meets Kim Heechul, From Stars to Idols

HeechulInterview

After finishing your military duties, and seeing that YG has a more liberated image compared to SM, have you ever thought of moving to a different agency?

I think I’m more liberated (T/N: liberal/free-spirited) for even YG (laughs) I haven’t thought of it, I think that there’s dissatisfaction wherever company I made be, the dissatisfaction may be different for each company, but it exists all the same. For example, YG has this system wherein the YG artists only appear in only one or two broadcasts per week. In SM, artists appear in four broadcasts per week. To be honest, once or twice a week is more convenient, as it gives more time for preparation and sees to it that bodies are more comfortable. So in that aspect, I envy the YG kids. However, there was something funny that YG group, 2NE1’s Sandara Park once said to me, “Oppa, we envy the artists on SM for coming out on broadcasts a lot,” she revealed. So it made me think that it’s all about perspective.

Article: 2NE1, “WE ARE THANKFUL FOR YG’S ADVICE, BUT HE IS SCARY SOMETIMES” [INTERVIEW]

2NE1, “WE ARE THANKFUL FOR YG’S ADVICE, BUT HE IS SCARY SOMETIMES” [INTERVIEW]

[파이낸셜뉴스 스타엔=김동주기자] Korea’s power girl group 2NE1 (CL, BOM, DARA, and MINZY), who’s leading the K-POP, finally released their second regular album “CRUSH” after about four years of waiting.

 

2NE1, a veteran girl group and cultural ambassador who promotes Korean culture, debuted six years ago. They say that their new album marks a turning point in their career. 2NE1 was able to produce a satisfactory album with various genres of music that represent each member’s different styles in music such as reggae, hip hop, and R&B. 2NE1′s member CL personally wrote the lyrics and music for the album.

 

CL said, “It took four years. Since our first album includes many single songs, it feels like this second album is actually the first regular album in our hearts. We tried various types of music and genre and stepped out of the boundary, so I’m exceptionally proud that the album came out to be great.”

 

DARA added, “All the members, including myself, are having a great time because we released many new songs after a long time. I feel like we were able to produce a great album although we waited a long period. I’m always smiling nowadays.”

 

2NE1 also felt anxious while waiting for the album’s release as it took too long. Although 2NE1 made TV appearances with single albums in the meantime, they were growing impatient as they wanted to let their fans hear the songs that they prepared for so long.

 

“I believe that’s why we were able to produce an excellent album. It feels as though we broke a mold by undertaking a big challenge. I get a sense of feeling that after going through a slow period, we will be able to keep going from now without stopping” said CL.

 

CL, who participated in writing the lyrics and music for the second regular album, feels like seeing her double in all of the songs and has a great affection for the new album. CL’s self-written song, “CRUSH,” became the title track of the album and the song has a special meaning to her.

 

CL explained, “There was a period of time when I thought it’s better not to write songs myself. I always wanted remain as a muse to someone else and I was afraid I might lose my fantasies for music if I get too much involved with it. But this time, I went for it, thinking that I’m going to make music for life. The funny thing is that after writing music myself, I wondered why I was so afraid before. The more I learn about music, the more mesmerizing it gets. Royalties for my songs? I didn’t get much for the songs I wrote since I only wrote three (laugh).”

 

YG Entertainment’s main producer Yang Hyun Suk personally choreographed one of the double title tracks, “Come Back Home,” for 2NE1′s second regular album.

 

Yang Hyun Suk, who choreographed Seo Tae Ji and Boys’ song “Come Back Home” in 1995, got to choreograph a song of the same title in 10 years, and it was unusual for him to take charge of the entire choreography as he only choreographed certain parts for other YG artists so far.

 

BOM said, “Our main producer paid a special attention to our new album. He even provided guidance to us all night long in the practice room. He probably did that since the song has a special meaning for him as well. I am extremely grateful for his support, but at the same time, I was actually scared of him since he kept a hawkish eye on us all the time (laugh).”

What is the secret behind 2NE1′s long-term success entering their sixth year since debuting? “Never getting old” was the answer that the members gave unanimously. They said that by never getting old, which is their motivation, they get to taken on challenges without any fear.

 

CL explained, “I personally don’t like the feeling of easiness. I believe once you start to enjoy the comfortable feeling, that’s the end of everything. Each member still has a lot to show in terms of our different personalities and styles. If we keep doing what we do, time will fly.”

 

“It is important to keep looking for new challenges. Personally, I’m always pursuing for changes by trying different hairstyles, although the “palm tree” and “vegetable” looks failed. (CL: “One time, DARA almost broke in tears, saying that she doesn’t want to get out of the car right in front of the broadcasting station.”) It is better not to go overboard on things sometimes,” said DARA, laughingly.

 

With the new album, 2NE1 set a new record. 2NE1′s second regular album “CRUSH” ranked No. 61 on the Billboard 200, an album chart, and their title track “Come Back Home” ranked No. 5 on the World Digital Songs Chart.

 

2NE1 got to dream a great leap forward as a global girl group through the new album’s success, setting an all-time-high record in K-POP history after fellow YG artist, PSY.

 

“Fans’ support is great motivation. There’s nothing rewarding than fans’ support and them being proud of us. That is why we should do our best in the work we do as the best girl group in Korea.”

What would 2NE1, who enjoys being on stage the most, look like in the next 10 years? DARA gave an explicit reply.

 

“I hope we stay the same after 10 years as well. We would probably be enjoying ourselves, just like now, not getting any older. My wish is to age stylishly, regardless of work, dressing like this and dying my hair blue even when I become a grandmother,” said DARA.

 

2NE1, starting with the Seoul Tour which was held on March 1st and 2nd, will hold 15 concerts in total in 12 cities of nine countries including Korea, Japan, and China. It is an exciting world tour with 2NE1 performing new songs from their second regular album.

 

In regard to the world tour concert, CL explained, “Since it’s been a long time since we sang and performed in front of our fans, we want to sing and show all of our songs and performances. I hope that our last concert of the world tour would be an encore concert in Korea. Wouldn’t my wish come true if all of our fans give us their support?”

 

“I really like it when our fans tell us that we’ve matured and became better. We received same compliments for this new album as well, which gave us more motivation to work harder,” said DARA.

 

BOM added, “It’s nice to hear that we’re good, but I want more than that. I want to hear that we’re a one-of-a-kind legendary group, but we would have to work harder to earn that title.”

Yang Hyun Suk expresses his satisfaction with 2NE1’s new album

2NE1이-직접-밝힌-프로듀서-씨엘

Yang Hyun Suk boosted Blackjacks’ expectations by expressing his satisfaction with 2NE1‘s new album!

In an interview with OSEN on the 24th, Yang Hyun Suk shared his thoughts on 2NE1‘s upcoming album and tour, “It will be a best quality album and worldwide concert…”

“2NE1’s new work is a top-quality album. Although there is significance in that its their new album in the six years since their debut, it’s also more significant because the PDs and all of the 2NE1 members, as well as myself included, held a very satisfying recording and production process… It’s not the best in the sense that we’re going out with the hopes to rank high on music shows and charts with these songs, we’re saying it’s the best quality as it is an album that we, YG, are satisfied with.”

He also added, “Before we present any project or stage in front of the public, YG has to be satisfied with it first. We shouldn’t present things that we are not satisfied with to the public. In that sense, this 2NE1 comeback will be a great gift to music experts and fans who love 2NE1… It’s not something that was simply thrown together but an album that was prepared over the past couple of years so the level of completion is top notch.”

The girls’ new album drops on the 26th so get ready for ‘CRUSH’!

On 19th afternoon, he said to OSEN about ‘Missing You‘ for the first time. “This song is weird. The refined arrangement of the song is outstanding like a pop song and has peculiar charm. This song unintentionally makes you cry.”

According to Yang Hyun-suk, the song not only made 2NE1 cry but also Lee Eun-joo cried after listening to the song. He added, “It was hard to make progress when recording due to the members crying.

The song was composed by YG’s main producer Teddy. In the previously unveiled teaser, ‘I hate him, who left me’ lyrics and tantalizing melody garnered attention.
