Message from YG [2009.11.12] [Korean-English Translation]

2009-11-12   9:32:20 am

Hi, it’s Yang Hyun Suk here. Take a bow~

I’m here today for the news of Tae Yang’s solo album.

Tae Yang’s second digital single

<Wedding Dress>

Tomorrow (11/13) Tae Yang’s second digital single “Wedding Dress” is about to release.

“Wedding Dress” is the song that Tae Yang co-wrote with Teddy. It’s not on the TV as “Where U At”. We plan to promote this song until the end of 2009 and the MV directed by Mr. Jang Jae Hyeok will be expecting to air tomorrow.


Fans are waiting in anxiety for the release of this album. Many news that came out before have created a little confusion.

Speaking of the release of “Where U At” digital single went into silence and did not get enough promotional broadcasting.

And to the release of “Wedding Dress” without the public preview also went disappeared.

I’m sure that there are a lot of complaints on these matters.


The Artist and YG are working hard for the album with desire and the fans all want to know more to come on all that.

But according to the less amount of the off-line music sales than last year….

I don’t think it is easy now to release the album on-line today at the same time in this situation.


It’s hard to reach for No.1 on the weekly music chart. Keeping the listeners from not walking out on you today is hard enough. They swiftly shift the way they listen to a song.

The influence of both on-line and off-line music affects the TV people’s choice of a comeback artist with a brand new song.


Like 2NE1, who have got lots of love from their first mini-album, are not in the plan of the follow-up promotional activities for it.

You can say that G-Dragon’s “Heartbreaker,” “Breathe” and “A Boy” follow-up activities which got a short period in broadcasting is like the whole promotion of the entire album.

That’s why we make 4 PVs for it.


Tae Yang requests his album promotion period to last longer depending on the activities in the progress that we plan to do.

It’s like what they do in the typical American way of releasing a single first and then follows by the studio album.

The only different is you’ll have one hit single first and then the title track together with the album.

Let’s say, “Where U At” is the first track of this album, marking the starting point of it all and

then “Wedding Dress” to follow suit.

It’s going to be kick-ass!


Tae Yang’s promotional activities are set.

Last month the foreign choreographers came to Korea not to brainstorm on “Where U At” but for the steps of “Wedding Dress.”


Tae Yang’s comeback after one year and a half is just around the corner.

We put a lot of effort into it and look forward to a good feedback.

I want all the fans to show us your support.


I’m supposed to be here for the Tae Yang news.

But I’ll give you some short news on 2NE1 and G-Dragon.



Park Bom never stops smiling since her “You And I” gets such a good feedback.

Even when I get angry at or pressure her, she only keeps smiling.


The bad news is we have to postpone the release of their album to next year

And we cannot hold their concert on December 30-31.

That’s because we figured it out that we haven’t had enough songs to do so.


Then the good news is that we will have a surprise show on November 20

And I won’t go in details because it’s a surprise.


We know that you’re curious, but be patient, it won’t be that long.



He will have the concerts at The Olympic Park on December 5-6.

So, he will stop all the broadcasting activities to focus on his practice.

“G-Dragon” will hold a surprise event next month.

All I can tell is that all the ladies will love to do so.


I’ll be back next time.

Coming up next are Se7en and Gommi new albums0


Good-bye, everyone….Take a bow~ (Young Bae~ Hwaiting!)


2009. 11. 12.






VIPs, we know you’re complaining YG’s artist promo strategies on YB, but be patient; the album’ll be as hot as YB himself! The six pack abs to rule K-Pop!
