5 Mar – Since the disbandment of his group Seo Tai-ji and Boys 16 years ago, the CEO of YG Entertainment, Yang Hyun-suk, who has been actively judging on SBS' "K-Pop Star", will be appearing on his first live broadcast.
Kpopstarz website reported that upon asked about his feelings, Yang remarked, "I'm probably more nervous right now than the top 10 finalists. Ever since the disbandment of Seo Tai-ji and Boys, I have rarely appeared on television. I've been so concentrated on the company to the point that I've even forgotten that I'm a celebrity myself."
Despite Yang's over-packed schedule, he has made room to prepare and do his upmost best for "K-pop Star".
Yang continued, "Not a lot of people recognised me with my hat on before I appeared on "K-Pop Star" but now, it's the total opposite. I have realised how tremendously popular the show is and at the same time, I've once again realised that I'm also a celebrity."
Meanwhile, with a high of 17% in viewer ratings, "K-Pop Star" has been going up against popular programs such as KBS 2TV's "1 Night 2 Days" in terms of viewer ratings and interest.
