Sibling duo Akdong Musician have launched an aegyo appeal to YG Entertainment president Yang Hyun Suk, asking him to let them release a new album.
On November 3, Akdong Musician appeared in a special video on the SBS Facebook page for “K-Pop Star 5.”
The duo are asked in the video what they would have done if the indie record label Antenna Music had been around in Season 2. Lee Chan Hyuk loyally answers that he still would have gone to YG, but younger sister Lee Su Hyun says, “I would have thought about it a lot.”
“I like YG. President Yang Hyun Suk is really good to us,” Lee Chan Hyuk says. Lee Su Hyun says to him cheekily, “Are you trying to get brownie points from the president?” When her brother admits it, she says cutely to the camera, “Please let us release a new album!”
Later, after Lee Chan Hyuk continues to praise YG, Lee Su Hyun jokes, “This is why Yoo Hee Yeol (a producer for Antenna Music) feels hurt and won’t accept your greetings.” Lee Chan Hyuk answers back, “But Yoo Hee Yeol doesn’t release our albums.” His sister laughs and says, “I think we have to delete this.”
Akdong Musician will be guest judges on “K-Pop Star 5.” The first broadcast is November 22.
