Seungri reveals ambitious plan for YG's revival through upcoming sitcom

Seungri attended the press conference for the Neflix sitcom “YG Future Strategy Office” on October 1.

The mockumentary sitcom stars BIGBANG’s Seungri as a highly ambitious employee who ends up being relegated to the YG Future Strategy Office, a powerless department staffed by the company’s outsiders. Seungri will try his best for the revival of YG Entertainment in order to return to the arms of the CEO.

Seungri expressed excitement for the show, saying, “I tried to do my best. I wanted the show to be out really fast, and now I feel so excited that I get to share this with everyone.” He also explained that the show is partly based on real life. “While filming the show, I wondered whether I could really share these stories.”

He continued, “Since the establishment of the company, Korea’s top agency YG Entertainment has become the best through producing various stars. However, we faced many different challenges. The absence of BIGBANG is one example. Thus the skyrocketing market value of YG Entertainment started to fall. It is rumored that YG’s CEO Yang Hyun Suk is up all night drinking whiskey after hearing that JYP’s market value is higher than YG’s.”

Seungri revealed that he will return to his ambitious young self, saying, “When I first arrived in Seoul to audition to become a trainee, I looked at 63 Tower and promised myself that I will own that building one day. Just like then, I am burning with ambition right now. This crisis is just an opportunity for me.”

He went on to say, “I’ve gained great survival skills while working as a member of BIGBANG. I think that’s why the CEO gave me a chance to participate in this important project. ‘YG Future Strategy Office’ will be a turning point for me. What I do best is ‘putting in effort.’ I am here because I work hard. Do you all know why Netflix is working with me? It’s because they believe in me.”

“YG Future Strategy Office” will start airing on October 5. Not only will artists from YG Entertainment such as WINNER and BLACKPINK appear but also special guests such as Sunmi, Apink’s Son Naeun, and Chungha are set to also appear in the sitcom.

So did Seungri just spill the tea on YG's stocks post-BIGBANG and YG's bitter ass over JYP? We may never know.

We been knew YG is bitter and helpless without Big Bang. Maybe if he actually focused on his other artists (cough cough BlackPink) then he wouldn’t have to be drinking his sorrows away every night but that’s too much to ask of this sexist pig.

Maybe their punkass wouldn’t have this problem if they set groups up for better success than playing Russian roulette with comebacks.
