[Interview] Yang Hyun Suk on K-Pop Star 2 Finale YG Entertainments very own Yang Hyun Suk, spoke with Star News for an interview on his thoughts on ending K-Pop Star 2 and he started off by saying, When I see how much the kids have grown, I am so proud.

For the past five months (November of last year to April 7), K-Pop Star 2 was aired as it showed the top three entertainment agencies, SM, JYP and YG, evaluate young contestants on who would become the next big thing.

Akdong Musician (Lee Chan Hyuk and Lee Soo Hyun) and Bang Yedam took the winner and runner-up titles, respectively. Throughout the competition Yang Hyun Suk, BoA and Park Jin Young offered warm words as well cold ones in order to help the contestants grow and move on toward the next round.

During the interview, Yang Hyun Suk stated, Just like season 1, when season 2 ended, I felt very relieved but disappointed as well.

Preparing for PSYs concert, G-Dragons world tour, Lee His new single promotions, 2NE1s new album productionYG is so busy right now that I even joked and said that I want to run away, says Papa YG. He continued, But because K-Pop Star is a program where young people come with dreams of becoming a singer, I put my best into it.

He said, The reason why Im doing K-Pop Star is because I think it will help the young contestants as well as the many people out there who want to become artists, if they hear the standards and evaluations of our three agencies, and Actually, when many people audition for our companies, its hard for me or Park Jin Young or BoA to actually critique them ourselves but I wanted to give that chance through this show.

Yang Hyun Suk also shared his most memorable moment of K-Pop Star 2. He said, When Akdong Musician sang Dont Cross Your Legs and Youre Attractive, I received a new shock. Also when Bang Yedam sang Justin Biebers Baby, it was very good.

YG also spoke about what sets K-Pop Star apart from other audition programs. This audition program isnt just about picking people who can sing well, and Our biggest different is that we highly evaluate the candidates potential to grow in the future.

He continued, The reason why such young contestants were chosen is because we saw great potential in their futures, and Akdong Musician and Bang Yedam showed improvements more toward the latter half of the show rather than the beginning half. I was the proudest when we finally discovered that potential in them.

He added, I dont know how Akdong Musician or Bang Yedam will have changed in a year or two but it will be very interesting to see their growth process.

When asked about which agency the K-Pop Star 2 contestants will enter, Yang Hyun Suk answered, The first thing that matters is the contestants choice and they are currently in talks with the staff, and Nothing has been decided or confirmed yet. But as you know from season 1, this will probably take about 1-2 weeks.

He added, Since this is a decision with their futures in line, we will respect their decision the most.

Lastly, Yang Hyun Suk talked about the a season 3 of K-Pop Star. He said, I think the possibility of a third season is about 50/50 right now. But if it does happen, I think BoA, Park Jin Young and I need to stick together. I also dont want the staff to change because we work together so well, and But I think we should change up the format a little from the past two seasons and I think the staff will agree with me on this.

Stay tuned to Soompi for more news on what will happen to the K-Pop Star 2 winners and contestants in the near future!

All You want  To grasp About Wallace Chung, Lee Min Ho’s “Bounty Hunters” Co-Star

Recognition as a major Actor“The Stand In” was the prime profile drama that brought recognition to Wallace Chung’s acting. He was widely praised for his convincing performances as the short-lived political activist Lee Chong Guan and the deficient rickshaw driving force lookalike Wang Ah Si that becomes Lee’s replacement. When observing the drama I was very wellinspired that either roles were played by him because they were so different. Even as Wang Ah Si transforms and becomes like Lee Chong Guan, Chung is ready to distinguish the 2by way of his acting. This drama built upon his symbol equally the charming romantic lead and gave him recognition as a serious actor.

Forming Connections with Korea

Most currently he was awarded the Asia Megastar Grand Award at the Seoul Global Film Awards. Idea that was his only connection with Korea before his casting in “Bounty Hunters”? Nope! He in the past headlined the Chinese motion picture adaptation of the Hallyu drama “Secret Garden” with H.O.T’s Kang Ta. This may also be a low budget remake, but it's far refreshing to see Chung in a red nightie and acting like a ladyfinally his other serious roles. Watch the hilarious scene at the 40 2nd mark below!
