CEO and founder of YG Entertainment Yang Hyun Suk revealed why he never had a wedding ceremony.
The December 1 broadcast of SBS talk show “Healing Camp” was the first episode of a new special series dedicated to facilitating dialogue between the leaders of the next generation and young people. Yang Hyun Suk appeared as the first featured guest.
With regards to why he and his wife Lee Eun Joo never held a wedding ceremony, he explained, “Although we got married, we never had a ceremony because we did not want to get up in front of others. It was too uncomfortable for us. We also did not want to just follow suit and do what everyone else does.”
Additionally, Yang Hyun Suk revealed, “My fear of getting up in front of people was so bad that I didn’t even have a wedding, but some time ago my daughter Eugene told me that the students were asked to bring their fathers to school for field day. My daughter assumed that I would definitely go, and I couldn’t tell her no so I went ahead and promised her I would. But from that moment I started having a panic attack.”
He continued, “I cleared my schedule and accompanied my daughter to field day. I put on my hat, hoping it would cover my face. When it was announced that the last game would be the Crack the Cracker Game [which involves eating crackers off a hanging string] I asked Eugene if we could sit out on this one. But, she got upset, insisting that she had to play. Ultimately, I ended up playing with my cap on backwards, and we won first place. Immediately afterwards, I felt my panic attack subside.”
