In the interview Yang Hyun Suk stated, “This year’s biggest focus is iKON and WINNER. Both teams will release new singles in March. Now that we’ve successfully debuted our newest girl group BLACKPINK last year, we will be devoting our all our affection to the two teams.”
Yang Hyun Suk compared his strategy to that of a farmer’s, saying, “I think of myself as a music farmer. A true farmer doesn’t envy the fruits of the neighboring orchard, but instead is intent about finding good seeds. It is fun to reap [the fruits of labor], but I feel it is even better to cultivate them. These talented kids are like good seeds.”
It looks like we’ll have lots to look forward to from YG Entertainment’s younger groups in 2017, so be sure to stick around moonROK for more news on iKON and WINNER’s March comebacks.
