YG Entertainment has created a new company YG Studio Plex in order to enter the drama production industry.
Earlier in the week, an insider report stated that YG Entertainment was looking to get into the drama industry. YG Entertainment has now released an official statement confirming this rumor.
We have established YG Studio Plex and have signed Park Hong Gyun PD.
Park Hong Gyun PD recently resigned from MBC Entertainment and worked on MBC dramas The Great Queen Seondeok, The Greatest Love, and Warm and Cozy. He will officially be joining YG Entertainment by May.
YG Entertainment has also joined forces with the company formerly known as The Wind Blows, who worked on 2013 hit drama That Winter, the Wind Blows. YG Entertainment is also no stranger to the drama industry, co-producing Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo.
