Kang Seung Yoon

Kang Seung Yoon‘s long-awaited debut already got off to a solid start with the success of “It Rains“, and he’s hoping to continue that streak with the release of not just one, but three title tracks!

As mentioned before, the singer is set to release his newest track “Wild & Young” on July 31st, but according to Yang Hyun Suk‘s newest letter to fans series (currently not available in English), Kang Seung Yoon has two more title tracks to follow up with in August and September! 

“Wild & Young” is by none other than YGE’s very own Teddy, and he apparently created this song 2 years back. As the song has a different feel from other YG artists’ songs, they had been waiting for its rightful owner to come by. Kang Seung Yoon ended up being that person when he was asked to sing the first line of the song when he came into the studio to record another track. The rest fit into place, and the song became the new soloist’s first title track!

In addition to this song, there is two more on the way with the second one being released in August and the third one to come in September. The third one’s lyrics are said to be written by G-Dragon, making this one that fans’ will surely want to look out for!

As for debut stage performances, Kang Seung Yoon will hold his first one on the August 4th’s ‘Inkigayo‘, so mark it down in your calendars!


YG Entertainment to hold open auditions in Asia at the beginning of 2011


YG Entertainment will soon begin hunting for talented singers all around Asia.

On November 4th, YG Entertainment stated, “Next year, on January 28th, we will be revealing an open online audition (www.yg-audition.com). We will be looking forward to seeing talents that will be the future of YG Entertainment, as those who will succeed the nation’s best singers: Big Bang, 2NE1, Se7en, and Gummy.”

YG Entertainment began overseas auditions back in June for the first time in six years, and have been traveling to America and other overseas countries to hunt for talented singers. They have been receiving such a hot response that their official website even crashed due to heavy traffic.

For these auditions, the finalists from the online auditions will have a real life audition in Korea, which will be judged directly by YG’s head man, Yang Hyun Suk.

YG have been known to not hold open auditions in the past, however, the company has finally decided to extend the number of open auditions starting from June of this year.

We like how people can show their strong talents in a short amount of time. If they don’t have confidence in having only one talent, working harder to show a variety of talents will net a good result,” said a representative of YG Auditions.

YG ASIA Auditions will commence at the beginning of 2011, starting from Korea, then to Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

Meanwhile, the YG Family Concert will take place this weekend, from 4 – 5th December.
