Yang Hyun Suk Claims ‘K-Pop Star’ Provides Highest Chance to Debut
Yang Hyun Suk brought up the strength of K-Pop Star.
Yang Hyun Suk attended the press conference for SBS’s K-Pop Star 4 on November 17 in Mokdong 41 Tower The Brillie and explained the value of K-Pop Star.

Yang Hyun Suk said, “K-Pop Star was the last to begin airing. Superstar K is several years ahead,” adding, “The participants’ dream is to become singers. Instead of getting praised for their singing abilities, they want to get the opportunity to perform on stage.”
He added, “What I feel most rewarded about as I operate YG, is not watching the company grow, making a lot of money or achieving my dreams, but when I can help others achieve their dreams. I help them as an experienced one and guide them to the shortcut. To be honest, the program that has the highest potential for debut is K-Pop Star.”
He explained, “We can’t say the obvious and take care of our image just because we’re celebrities. The judges are representatives of agencies. We judge honestly with the eyes of planners. We might have different opinions from the viewers but that’s what characterizes K-Pop Star and the reason that people should watch it. This is not a singing competition. I would like to choose people who have the talent to become stars. K-Pop Star has a different point of view and I think that’s why so many dreamers are applying to K-Pop Star.”
Meanwhile, the survival audition program K-Pop Star provides aspiring singers to receive systematic training from YG Entertainment, JYP Entertainment and Antenna Music and the opportunity to debut. Yang Hyun Suk, Park Jin Young and Yoo Hee Yeol will appear as judges in season 4, following the last season.
-----′K-Pop Star 4′ PD Shares Thoughts on Contestants with Controversial Pasts
Regarding the controversial issues that follow contestants, K-Pop Star 4 PD, Park Sung Hoon shared his thoughts. 
On November 17, SBS′ K-Pop Star 4 held its press conference at The Brillie in Mokdong, where Park Sung Hoon PD stated, "People who work on programs with non-celebrities are always careful." 

During the press conference, Park Sung Hoon PD received a question about different controversies that arose with the pasts of non-celebrity contestants, especially involving school bullying. 
"We are lawfully and ethically not allowed to and shouldn′t be allowed to do background checks. On one hand, we can filter out people with legal issues that′ll get in the way of achieving their dreams through K-Pop Star, but it′s difficult to draw the line on how forgiveable a small mistake is or not," stated Park Sung Hoon PD. 
"The main principle is for people with dreams to sincerely do their best, more than being fundamentally allowed or not allowed to participate, but the difference with the broadcast is that it depends on the sentiments of the viewers. For some people, we′re very careful on dealing with how long they can appear on broadcast. But we must choose a solution that will prevent anyone from getting hurt. We′re currently producing [the program] with that as a worry." 
K-Pop Star is an audition program for promising singers, allowing them the opportunity to train with YG Entertainment, JYP Entertainment and Antenna Music. Yang Hyun Suk, Park Jin Young, and Yoo Hee Yeol will continue being judges in this upcoming season. 
The show begins November 23. 
-----Yang Hyun Suk Explains the Differences Between “K-Pop Star” and “Superstar K”
Yang Hyun Suk, a judge of SBS’ survival show “K-Pop Star” and the CEO of YG Entertainment, has shared his opinion on the differences between two leading survival programs, “K-Pop Star” and “Superstar K.”
On November 17, Yang Hyun Suk attended the press conference of “K-Pop Star 4,” which is set to premiere later this week. During the event, he explained, “The shows are fundamentally different. ‘Superstar K’ picks talented singers, while ‘K-Pop Star’ follows the format of an audition for a talent agency, in which singers are evaluated, discovered, and prepared for debut.”

Yoo Hee Yeol added, “‘Superstar K’ feels polished and it lets the vocalists’ colors shine, where as we focus on growth. We think of the singers’ prospective position in the music industry if they were to debut. Even if they are clumsy on stage, we draw a larger picture by evaluating their ability to communicate through music.”
Park Jin Young shared his opinion, “If you are not natural, you will be eliminated [from 'K-Pop Star']. If you sing like you talk, you will make it. If other audition shows are about singing skills, ‘K-Pop Star’ is about being natural.”
The fourth season of “K-Pop Star” will premiere on November 23 at 4:50 p.m.

-----J.Y.Park shares the true 'conglomerate' side of Yoo Hee Yeol
On the November 19 airing of SBS's 'One Night TV Entertainment,' the three judges of 'K-Pop Star' bickered back and forth displaying their close relationship they had built up through the program. 

During the interview, J.Y. Park exposed the true side of musician Yoo Hee Yeol, drawing out laughter. 
J.Y. Park introduced himself as the person who was taking on the role of "antis" while Yoo Hee Yeol said, "I'm Yoo Hee Yeol taking on the role of tears." Yang Hyun Suk added, "I'm not really good at this... I'm Yang Hyun Suk taking on the role of center." 
Then, J.Y. Park said, "When the camera is off, he [Yoo Hee Yeol] acts like he's a big shot conglomerate. When the camera goes on, (he says things like) 'hope of the people...' One day his dual-personality is bound to come out on air." 

Yoo Hee Yeol refuted, "Of course, the conglomerate would scheme..." and added, "Don't you think that a turtleneck and a vest is quite inappropriate in the middle of winter," poking fun at J.Y. Park's unique fashion.

Yoo Hee Yeol jumped to his own defense and said,  “Large corporations do play tricks…” and continued by criticizing J.Y. Park on his fashion, “A turtleneck and a vest in the middle of the winter, that’s not very fitting is it?” drawing out a round of laughter from everyone.
Recently, Antenna Music’s underwent a logo change and when questioned why, Yoo Hee Yeol said, “A man’s got to be ambitious.”

YGE CEO Yang Hyun Suk reveals he lost 15 lbs because of Yoo Hee Yeol
'K-Pop Star 4' judges J.Y. Park, Yang Hyun Suk, and Yoo Hee Yeol sat down for an interview on SBS' 'One Night of TV Entertainment'!
The reporter asked the judges to go back to a rookie mindset by introducing themselves as if they were an idol group to which J.Y. Park said, "Hello, it's J.Y. Park who is in charge of being the anti on 'K-Pop Star'!" Yoo Hee Yeol shared, "It's Yoo Hee Yeol who is in charge of crying." Everyone anticipated Yang Hyun Suk's introduction, and he didn't disappoint by sharing, "It's Yang Hyun Suk who is the center of 'K-Pop Star'," adding one of Seo Taiji and Boys' famous dance moves with J.Y. Park.
J.Y. Park shared what it's like to be a judge for the competitive reality show, saying, "To be honest, there are many times when I forget that I'm on a broadcast. I'd say things like, 'You really shouldn't be a singer,' 'You have no talent,' and I'd work myself up while talking. But after I finished and put down the mic, [Yoo Hee Yeol] would say, 'It's hard, isn't it? How hard it must have been to come this far.' Is that what you call judging," teasing Yoo Hee Yeol.
During their 'OX' talk, when asked if they ever prepared their comments beforehand, Yang Hyun Suk was the only one who gave an 'O' to which Yoo Hee Yeol shared, "He speaks so well." Yang Hyun Suk revealed the secret to his eloquent judging, sharing, "I prepared it throughout a year. I'm always thinking of what to say, and if a contestant that fits [the comment I thought of beforehand] comes out, I say it accordingly," bringing laughs with his honesty.
When asked if they took care of their visuals to look better than the other judges, Yang Hyun Suk responded, "I don't know if the viewers can tell or not, but Yoo Hee Yeol's face is a little squished inwards. If there's a two-shot of us, I come out big so I lost around 7 kg (~15 lbs) in 4 months."

Six year old girl Na Ha Eun made an appearance on the premiere episode SBS K-Pop Star 4, in hopes to be chosen as the next biggest K-Pop star in Korea, where she stole the judges’ hearts with her skills and the audience with her aegyo smile.
The premiere episode of the popular audition survival show aired on November 23rd following Inkigayo, where JYP and YG Entertainment artist Baek A Yeon, Akdong Musician‘s Suhyun and Chanhyuk, who all hail from past K-Pop Star seasons, Wonder Girls’ Yeeun (also known as HA:TFELT), and Sunmi were present in the audience

Na Ha Eun had already tugged at the audience and judges’ hearts with her adorable appearance and smile, and completely won them over with her cute performance of “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” from the Disney Frozen OST album.
Just as the judges believed her performance was over, Na Ha Eun shocked them as she began dancing to a hip-hop choreography, showing off her swagger and throwing her hat offstage for the end.

It's subbed on Dramafire.  Maybe some other sites as well.  The first show was really good.  I'm amazed by the level of talent.  If this was the talent level of the first ep, then the season is going to be better than last.

just watched the second episode live streaming.  It's so good!  I'm surprised there isn't more buzz on soompi about this show.  The singers are better than last season, and also more diverse in terms of genre.  It makes for really interesting comparisons and contrasts.  I can't wait for the coming episodes and rounds.
