Jinusean’s Sean conveyed that he wanted junior singers Big Bang and 2NE1 to be seen as musicians, not idol stars.
On MBC ‘Sunday Interview Person,” which was broadcasted on the 16th, explained about the negative views that the YG Entertainment who used to only go for original hip-hop and R&B had lost its color by planning idol groups.
Sean said, “The most basic things are laid down. It’s just that they are young friends, it’s not that our company particularly insisted on making them an idol group.” Laughing, he said, “To tell the truth, Big Bang or 2NE1 is lacking in looks compared to the other idols.”
He also said, “Rather than that we revealed them as idols, they’re friends that love music, it’s just that that they were young. I want the public to look at them not as idols, but people who are good at music, but younger than they thought.”
On the other hand, about the fact that idol groups are the general trend in the music industry these days, Sean praised, “In the past, idol groups were associated with pretty looks but now, talent is included in addition to looks.”
He said, “I saw Big Bang from 5th grade in Elementary school. I thought, ‘If you have talent and passion, lots of people acknowledge you.’ What they cannot win over others their age, they pump into music, and as a reward to their effort, I think they are receiving the love of the public.”
Outside of this, on broadcast that day, Sean pointed out the value of real sharing as the “Sharing Spokesperson,” and talked open-mindedly about things such as living happily with wife Jung Hye Young.
