YG Entertainment’s entrance into KOSDAQ & 3 new idol groups in the making?!~


Ummm. OH WOW. YG’s getting bigger and bigger~

Do any of you guys watch Terry He on Youtube? Well, 2 members of his old boy band thingy, Brian Kan and Don Lee, left in 2010 to become trainees at YG. I wonder if they’re debuting soon.

One of Korea’s top agencies, YG Entertainment, will finally be listed on the independent Korean stock market, KOSDAQ (the Korean counterpart to the American NASDAQ).

YG Entertainment’s application to enter KOSDAQ has been pending for a while now, and it was finally approved earlier this year. This new announcement states that their stocks will be listed on the market starting on November 23rd.

In light of such a big development, YG Entertainment held a press conference on November 8th and revealed their plans after entering KOSDAQ.

With top artists like Big Bang, 2NE1, Se7en, Gummy, Psy, Tablo, Yoo In Na, Jung Hye Young, and more under its label, YG Entertainment brought in approximately $40 million USD last year in sales, $9.2 million in operating profit, and $8.75 million in net profit. In the first half of 2011, they also recorded strong figures with $39.9 million in sales, $8.6 million in operating profit, and $6.4 million in net profit.

With YG Entertainment entering the stock exchange fray, all of the ‘Big 3′ companies (YG Entertainment, SM EntertainmentJYP Entertaiment) are now listed on KOSDAQ. (SM Entertainment was able to secure its entrance into KOSDAQ more than 10 years ago, while JYP Continue reading

Wonder Girls on their US venture and new album~!


I’ve missed them, and so glad they’re going to be back~ (L)

In 2008, the Wonder Girls knocked on the door of the U.S. market and embarked on a long journey of self-discovery and growth. Though they were top stars in Korea, the girls were forced to start from the very bottom again with street performances.

They also completed a successful U.S. Tour, and filmed a movie with TV network, Teen Nick.
