Yang Hyun Suk, the CEO of YG Entertainment, has shared his opinion on the popularity of female soloist IU.

On the November 23 episode of SBS’ “K-Pop Star 4,” contestant Park Yoon Ha impressed the judges with her promising singing skills. Yang Hyun Suk, one of the three judges of the show, said, “You have said that you like clean and pure singers like IU, Younha, and Akdong Musician. I have figured out why IU is so popular.”

“IU’s is able to express appropriately. Instead of singing like a singer, she gives the impression of your ex-girlfriend singing,” Yang Hyun Suk explained.

“Park Yoon Ha, if you polish your skills a bit more and find your own style like IU, you will be able to sing with a much more charming voice,” the judge advised the contestant.

Meanwhile, “K-Pop Star 4” airs on Sundays at 4:50 p.m.
