It is a rare thing for a CEO to directly communicate with fans regarding the artists. Lots of attention poured in for Yang Hyun-suk’s honest communication method. YG Entertainment has kicked off to a great start this year with iKon’s ‘Love Scenario’ and ‘Flower Road’ from BIGBANG. We are most certain that other artists will follow the footstep of iKon and BIGBANG, and bring great results to the company as well in the second-quarter.
