2012 is the year of YG Entertainment. PSY who became the world sensational rapper with his “Gangnam Style” belongs to YG Entertainment. Moreover, MTV mentioned two more of YG Entertainemnt’s artists, 2NE1 and Big Bang, on the top 10 list for “Best Band Style of 2012.” The list included One Direction, The Wanted, Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Destiny’s Child, Fun, HAIM, and No Doubt.
MTV wrote on 2NE1: “K-Pop had a GIGANTIC year in 2012, partly because of ‘Gangnam Style‘ and partly because the genre is CHOCK FULL of boy bands and girl groups. MTV Style has a soft spot for 2NE1 thanks to their propensity for all things bold and colorful and their enviable closeness with Jeremy Scott.”
MTV also wrote on Big Bang: “Speaking of bold and colorful… We are OBSESSED with Big Bang. The K-Pop boy band is a five-dude unit of unbridled energy, hyper-saturated streetwear, tonsorial risk-taking, and uhh, they wear MINX NAILS SOMETIMES. *faints*”
Big Bang has made headlines on MTV for the group’s unique style and songs. The group captured attention for their minx nails and for “Blue” and “Bad Boy.”
