[News] Comedian Kim Kyung Jin also wants to join YG Entertainment

It looks like Jung Hyung Don inspired a gagman rush to YG Entertainment, as fellow comedian Kim Kyung Jin has also requested to join YG.

A few days ago, Jung Hyung Don jokingly asked CEO Yang Hyun Suk if he would consider welcoming Jung to the label. Yang responded in an interview with E-Daily that “If Jung Hyung Don really meant what he said, I would like to discuss a management contract with him.”

On January 30th, Kim Kyung Jin added his own appeal to YG by tweeting the following message: ”I wish to go to YG. It’s because I’m a “gag-singer” who has released three digital singles! A gagman and singer!! CEO Yang! Please watch over the group ‘One Hundred’~

He then attached a photo of himself posing beside a typed note that read, “I want to join YG too!” The comedian also wrote ‘YG’ on his face with toothpaste to further express his enthusiasm.

Netizens laughed as they commented, “Yang Hyun Suk! It’s a good deal! A gagman AND a singer in one!” and “Who’ll be the next gagman to knock on YG’s door, I wonder?

[News] Yang Hyun Suk would welcome Jung Hyung Don into YG Entertainment

On a recent recording of MBC Every1‘s ‘Weekly Idol‘, comedian Jung Hyung Don had jokingly asked if YG Entertainment recruited gagmen in hopes of joining the label.

The episode featured a segment where Jung Hyung Don called up YG Entertainment officials to tell them news of G-Dragon winning yet another poll held amongst idols. During the call, he asked, “Does YG not recruit gagmen?”

Although it was said as a joke, YG Entertainment’s Yang Hyun Suk readily welcomed the gagman. On January 27th, in an interview with E-Daily, he revealed, “If Jung Hyung Don really meant what he said, I would like to discuss a management contract with him.”

He continued, “Not only myself, but the majority of our company staff are fans of Jung Hyung Don. If he would come, I think I’d actually be really thankful.”

Jung Hyung Don actually isn’t signed with an agency at the moment, and his relationship with YG stars dates back to ‘Infinity Challenge‘, where he collaborated with Big Bang‘s G-Dragon.

[News] Jung Hyung Don "Does YG scout comedians?" (120127)

Comedian Jung Hyung-Don gave great laughter when he called YG Entertainment in order to speak to idol group BIG BANG's member, G-Dragon.

Jung Hyung-Don attempted to call G-Dragon, who had won first place in the ranking 'Full of cool! Luxury Force Idols', in the show 'Weekly Idol's 'Real Chart! Idol Self-Ranking' corner. In this program, idols themselves vote the winners pre-show.

The specialty of this corner is calling the first place winner in a congratulatory call. Jung Hyung-Don had to call G-Dragon, but since he did not know his number, he ended up calling YG Entertainment instead.

The employee that had received the call stated brightly "I see G-Dragon often. I'll be sure to relay the message to him, please support Big Bang," and also told him "I'm your fan."

In response, Jung Hyung Don half-jokingly revealed "Does YG scout comedians? I don't have an entertainment company. However, I won't tell anyone I'm a part of YG." 

To this, the employee joked back, "I'll talk to the president about it." 

'Weekly Idol' is broadcasted every Saturday at 2:00PM, on MBCeveryone.
