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

Big Bang drops $200k in production for “Love Story” MV~

Cost doesn’t matter, cause they’ll earn it back in a second ;)

Big Bang has reported that they’ve spent over $200,000 USD on the production for their upcoming music video, “Love Song.”

Each individual scene was said to have been recorded for the entire duration of the song’s length. Not only that, but YG Entertainment also brought in a ‘4 point wire cam’ that has never once been used in Korea, which allows them to film footage that previously required outside graphic programs.

Other equipment used include aviation shooting, a jimmyjib, a motion control camera, a remote head crane, flying cams, and steady cams, all of which is usually only used for Hollywood films and Olympic relays.

The boys also left the restrictions of a studio by directly heading to the empty fields of an island for their backdrop, and will even be constructing their own two-lane road.
