Yg Family Official Thread

Recommended Posts

Hello friends! I’m an old kpop fan (think fervently awaiting DBSK’s 2009 Mirotic comeback kind of old); I’m passing on the pretty things I’ve collected over the years (lots of YG family goodies here and some very, very precious to me!) as I’m moving out of the country. I'm not entirely sure if it is okay for me to be posting here but the forum rules didn't explain much so I'm going to try my luck and if I'm out of line, please know that I'm very sorry and please do remove my post.


If you're still reading, my kpop collection has been kept in pristine condition as I take very good care of my stuff - the photos speak for themselves! Below is a list of the items I have for sale; most of them are BNIP (brand spankin’ new and sealed) and all of them, I believe, are out-of-print by now and very hard to come by. I’ve seen people on ebay selling many of these albums for outrageous prices, which I’m not gonna do – most of the albums are priced around $8. I also have in my collection some rare photobooks (like the DBSK Bonjour Paris set and the Big Bang History 2008-2006 set) and autographed collectibles that are so precious to me, and that I will be letting go for a higher price. I’ve tried my best to be as reasonable as I can be so that hopefully y’all can snag some nice gems for yourselves ☺


Feel free to check out the detailed photos of all these gems at the link here: https://carousell.com/babythingss/?collection_id=25

To purchase or ask me any questions, please email me at justbabythingss@gmail.com ☺

Interview: WINNER on touring Stateside, artistic growth & aging backwards 




It’s not yet halfway through February, but numerous Korean artists have already descended on the Stateside touring circuit to bring their music to local audiences. One such group, WINNER, held their first ever North American performances in January during the local leg of their Everywhere World Tour.
With a lineup that features vocalists Jinu (Kim Jinwoo) and Yoon (Kang Seungyoon) and rappers Mino (Song Minho) and Hoony (Lee Seunghoon), the quartet traveled throughout the U.S. and Canada, singing their addictive brand of tropical house dance and alt hip-hop hits, including 2017’s “Really Really” and “Island” and December’s “Millions," as well as many other songs, like Yoon's pre-WINNER songs and Mino's more recent solo efforts.
Ahead of the final stop of the tour at the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden on Jan. 29, Billboard sat down with WINNER to discuss the tour, their recent releases and more.
You ended 2018 strong with the release of “Millions” and now you’re starting the year with a North American tour for the first time. How are you feeling about moving into 2019? What would you like to achieve this year?
Mino: We started off this year with our first ever North American tour so we’re very excited about that. We’re feeling very positive energy from that, and we believe we’ve received a lot of love from our fans.
Yoon: After this tour we want to get ready for a new album, whether it will be a single or a full album. I want to focus on my solo album as well, and the other members feel the same. Even if it takes until the end of the year for us to come back with new music as WINNER, we want good synergy with that as well.  
You’re all involved with your songwriting. What’s your creative process like?
Yoon: When an idea based on our daily lives pops into our heads, we’ll take notes. Even if it’s a sentence or a word, we keep that in mind. When we think of a track or melody that fits with that idea, that’s when we start producing our music.
Mino: Since we’re busy traveling and performing, we have to make time and manage working on our album at the same time. I brought my tools from Korea and started working on songs but we’ve been really busy so I haven’t used it much.
Yoon: Recently, I received a lot of inspiration from our fans, and I think that’s where the message all starts from. As to our song “Millions,” I felt that the fans liked little, specific portions of me, so I thought to make the lyrics reflect that there are millions of reasons as to why we each should be loved. So that’s the message I wanted to put into the song. Based on that sort of everyday inspiration.
How has your approach to making music changed over the years?
Yoon: When we first made our debut, we were really young. At the time we wanted to be like adults, so our music was a bit heavier thematically. But these days, we just want to make music that suits us in this time, at this age. The songs that we produce right now are much more youthful than what we originally were doing. We show our identities, who we are right now.
Since your start in 2014, have the members changed?
Yoon: Apart from my teeth, nothing is the same. Everything has changed.
Mino: We’ve matured a lot in the past years, whether it’s the relationship between ourselves, the members, and our fans, or having a lot more stage experience. These things have reflected us in a positive way and we feel that we’ve developed in a good way.
Yoon: I think our visual [image] is much younger seeming now than during our debut [era with World Albums chart-topper 2014 S/S]. I think when we debuted, we were suited up. It was very heavy hair styling. And then now, all our clothes are very colorful, a youth vibe.
Do you think that suits you better?
Yoon: I don’t know.
Mino: We like suits, but if we hadn’t tried to look older back then… Starting with a mature look, we are now reversing and getting more youthful look.
So if you’re aging your style backwards, will we see school uniforms soon?
Yoon: No. Not ever.
WINNER started out on the competition reality series WIN: Who Is Next?, and nowadays there are many survival shows creating K-pop acts, including your own company’s recent Treasure Box, which you appeared on. How do you guys feel about this trend?
Yoon: Recently, there are programs like Produce 101 that have a lot of contestants participating, and then they pick several members for a team, right? I think that’s a positive because after competition everyone develops. When I see specific participants, it inspires me to work harder. I feel like there’s positive synergy coming out of it.  
Have you watched any?
Yoon: Treasure Box. 
This is the end of your North American tour. How has your perception of the local K-pop audiences and your fans, Inner Circle, here changed, if at all?
Yoon: We didn’t know that there were this many K-pop and Inner Circle fans throughout the U.S. We thought, “Would a lot of fans come to see our show?” We are so grateful that a lot of people showed up to our tour. Fans in the U.S., they really come to have fun. When we were on stage, we saw fans dancing. It’s a little bit different than the fans in Korea. Korean fans just follow the fan chants and listen and sing to the songs.  
You’re several years into your career, but this is your first time performing in North America, and you’re doing so with a sizable tour. Why was now the right moment within WINNER’s career to come to the States?
Yoon: We were really busy in the past, focusing on Korea and honing our skills. We didn’t have a lot of time as we were developing our career. We thought, “Why not now?” because if not now, the opportunity and time may not be available in the future. We couldn’t delay that. We feel that this is the perfect time.

BIGBANG's Seungri Opens Up About Burning Sun Controversy + Sincerely Apologizes To Fans At Concert



BIGBANG’s Seungri began his “Seungri 1st Solo Tour The Great Seungri Final in Seoul” concert on February 16 with a sincere apology to fans regarding the recent controversy surrounding the club Burning Sun.
In January, an incident involving physical violence occurred at Burning Sun, a club that was linked to Seungri’s name as the owner had brought him on as a consultant. The incident soon grew into a controversy as claims of sexual assault, hidden cameras, and drug usage began to emerge, all of which are currently under investigation by the police. YG Entertainment’s Yang Hyun Suk and Seungri himself released official statements regarding the matter, and then Burning Sun’s CEO stepped forward to apologize. It was stated that Seungri had never gotten involved in the management side of the club, and was only there as a consultant.
Before his concert started on February 16, Seungri decided to open up about the issue and apologize to fans. He began by stating, “I wish to speak about the recent controversy. I feel like if I don’t, the people who have come today will feel uncomfortable. I am very apologetic to all those who care for me. I’m sorry for causing disappointment for so many people, and I am reflecting on what has happened.”
He continued to state, “Despite there being a controversy, I did not act in a responsible manner. Despite the fact that the controversy took place in a location that I have publicly spoken about, I did not act in a responsible way and for that, I am ashamed and regretful. It is all due to my negligence.”
Seungri said, “As I am a celebrity, I will think and act more carefully from now on. I want to apologize for not showing modesty and for acting carelessly. For the past year, I have been doing my best to bring you all happiness. But I have brought you disappointment, and for that, I am ashamed. I want to apologize once again, and I will take all of your words to heart.”
He finished with a promise that he will do his best during the concert. He said, “I’ve put a lot of preparation into this. I will be grateful if you can enjoy the concert. I think that would make me feel like all my work was worth it.”
Seungri is currently on what will be his last tour before he enlists in the military. He has already met with fans in Hong Kong, Manila, and Tokyo, and following the concert in Seoul, he will be traveling to Singapore, Osaka, and Jakarta to meet with fans.

Winner on Winner: The K-Pop Group's Members Describe One Another's Style


Kpop boy group WINNER in pinkthemed outfits for Everywhere Tour in front of purple tour posters


Before sitting down with the members of Winner backstage at Madison Square Garden, I didn't anticipate having to assure Mino that it's OK if Yoon thinks he dresses like grandpa. It's definitely not an insult — to me, at least.
I had just prompted the Korean boy group to describe the personal style of the member sitting to their right in one word. Yoon, Winner's lead member, goes first. "Grandpa," he declares, looking at Mino.
The 25-year-old rapper Mino is dressed in a greige tweed suit with chocolate trimmings — a look befitting of a 76-year-old haberdasher who's lived in the same Upper West Side apartment since 1953. And yet, he rejects this description of his personal aesthetic. The only aspects of his look that truly separate him from a grandpa are his shimmery champagne eye shadow and the silver barbell through the center of his lower lip. Unlike many K-pop stars who have been clipping on fake lip rings lately, Mino's labret piercing is real.
"What the fu-? What the fu- did you say?" Mino grumbles after Yoon repeats "grandpa," this time in Korean. That's when I step in.
"My friends say I dress like a grandma all the time," I offer. However, the puffy sleeves and retro-printed pieces I typically wear have an aesthetic that categorizes more as "middle school art teacher who just retired in Boca Raton with her ferret" than Mino's "sophisticated grandpa who's cool enough to still have a lip ring."
After everyone stops laughing, Yoon elaborates on his original point. "[Mino's] style is so classic and his hairstyle," he explains, now speaking English.
Mind you, earlier in the interview, Mino mentioned his favorite beauty moment from the Everywhere Tour in North America was a wavy platinum hairstyle that almost looked electrified. Fans have been calling him a mad scientist. Yoon called him Einstein.
"He really likes colorful clothes," Yoon continues. "So I think he looks a little bit like a grandpa." Still, Mino is confused. For him, classic and colorful just don't add up to "grandpa."
Mino on Jinu
Mino lets Yoon's response settle in for a second before pondering how to portray Jinu's personal style. "He's..." Mino pauses to hum to himself before continuing, "pretty."
Yoon interjects to say Jinu is like a prince. Mino agrees, tacking "casual" and "boyfriend" on as additional descriptors for Winner's oldest member, who is 27. (Unlike Mino, Jinu doesn't have any objections to this characterization.)
From what I can tell, Mino's answer is on point. During the small amount of time I spent with the group, I could tell Jinu was the most minimalist member. All four wore a myriad of silver rings. However, at one point, I notice Jinu's suddenly in a pile on the table between us. Clean, crisp lines are often the focus of his outfits, too. And his favorite beauty moment on tour was the most low-key of the whole quartet: blue colored contacts.

When it comes to skin care, Jinu is the savviest on the subject. In fact, Yoon calls upon him after I ask how their routines change on tour. "Going on many tours, we have attained know-how for taking care of our skin," Jinu tells me. His acquired skin-care expertise that is included but not limited to a top-secret method for clearing breakouts and lots of sheet masking.
Jinu on Hoony
Next up is Hoony. Jinu looks to Winner's main dancer, who is sitting next to him on a large black leather couch, and thinks of the one word to illustrate Hoony's style. In Korean, Jinu explains that 27-year-old Hoony is innocent and child-like.
Before this little game, Hoony mentioned their solo performance looks on tour reflect their personal style best. For his fun rendition of Taeyang's "Ringa Linga," Hoony slipped on a black leather jacket with flame-like tassels over a KISS shirt with the sleeves cut off and ripped black skinny jeans. His chocolate-mauve hair was also spiked up. In fact, the color and style changed up for the tour. "I colored my hair a lot back in Korea, so when coming to the U.S., I cut it really short," he explains. "It’s really easy to wash my hair now." My interview with Winner took place before the last show of the North American tour, so the rocker look was unexpected based on Jinu's description.
Hoony on Yoon
Hoony proceeds to call Yoon, who was sitting on the other side of the room in an armchair, "pocket boy." Yoon could probably see the confusion on my face because he clarifies, "I have so many pockets in my clothes or in my bag." At one point during the concert, I wasn't sure where exactly Yoon's hand was. Upon closer inspection, it was tucked away in one of the many pockets of his shirt. Suddenly, Hoony's description of him made complete sense.

My pre-show interview with Winner also made me more aware of their eye makeup, too. Yoon tells me the pinkish eye shadow he wore for the tour was his favorite beauty moment. When Winner made their grand appearance on stage via a moving platform illuminated by bright white lights, Yoon's dusty rose shadow was the first thing I noticed. Mino, on the other hand, had a rose gold hue swept all over his lids. A wash of coral on Jinu's was hidden under his long bangs, which were styled to have a wet look. Hoony seemed to have on a similar shade, too.
Winner on Winner
Before my interview with the members of Winner, I planned to prove a hair color-based theory. You see, when I think of their latest single "Millions," magenta immediately comes to mind. It has less to do with synesthesia and more to do with dye jobs. If you watch the incredibly colorful music video for it, you'll notice that Hoony's hair is the bright pink shade. With this in mind, I wondered if Jinu, Yoon, Mino, and Hoony associated some of their most beloved songs with the bright dye jobs they had at the time.

Only Yoon plays along with my supposition. "Everyday" is dark blue, he decides. What color was his hair when the song was released in April 2018? A stunning teal-toned sapphire.
Then, Mino exclaims "yellow" when "Really Really" comes up, and Yoon agrees. Although the music video for this song is in black and white, it's easy to tell that Yoon bleached his hair platinum blonde. Through my many interviews with idols, I've learned that many call blonde hair yellow, so my theory is checking out so far.

Things go south when it comes to "Millions," though. Unfortunately, none of the Winner guys associate the song with any shade of pink. Mino declares "Millions" is mint; Jinu calls it sky blue. (For the record, neither of them had green nor blue hair for the music video.) When Hoony doesn't say anything, I own up to my ulterior motive.
After hearing about my hair color theory, Yoon and Mino ooh and ahhh. "Wow, wow," Yoon states like his mind has just been blown. "That shocked me a little bit." He goes on to admit that he wears deep blue every day, so that might be why he said that. To that, Mino calls him selfish. But I'm the most selfish one in this situation, let's be real.
With nearly five years under their belts, Winner has firmly established its style and presence in the K-pop world. But I wondered how they identified themselves as a group, overall. Mino describes Winner's style as a boyfriend, fun, and easygoing vibe. It has a broad, instantly loveable appeal to it. "It’s quite different from our personal styles because our individual personalities are very clear and distinctive," he explains. "They're a little different from what people would think of Winner, in general."
"We want to go with the flow with a young, youthful type of thing. We're all young, so we just want to go with the same lines of who we are right now."
In the past, Yoon says the group focused on a heavier, refined aesthetic — one portrayed in "Really Really" and "Love Me Love Me." But with the December 2018 release of "Millions," Winner began leaning towards a lighter, happier style filled with good vibes. "Back in the days of our debut [in 2014], we wanted to look mature," Yoon recalls. "Nowadays, we want to go with the flow with a young, youthful type of thing. We are all young, so we just want to go with the same lines of who we are right now, whether it be music or style."
So, while Mino may emulate a grandpa in his day-to-day life, he embraces being the 25-year-old he truly is onstage with his Winner members.
