YG Entertainment Denies Allegations By MBC’s “Straight” That Yang Hyun Suk Mediated Prostitution Services
YG Entertainment has denied claims that the agency’s founder Yang Hyun Suk mediated sexual services for foreign investors.
On May 26, MBC’s “Straight” released a teaser video for their upcoming episode where they brought forth allegations that Yang Hyun Suk had solicited prostitutes for foreign investors. “Straight” claims that they have obtained evidence in the form of detailed testimony that Yang Hyun Suk arranged such services for two Southeast Asian investors in July 2014.
The show claimed, “Yang Hyun Suk and one YG singer waited for them [investors] at an upscale Korean restaurant in Gangnam, and strangely, there were 25 women who accompanied the eight men at the restaurant. Of the 25 women, at least ten were from a well-known adult entertainment establishment that has close ties with YG.”
They went on to state, “After the meal, they moved to NB, a club in Gangnam that is said to be actually owned by Yang Hyun Suk. We have obtained evidence that at this club, sexual services were involved.”
In response, YG Entertainment has denied the claims and stated, “The claims are false. Although Yang Hyun Suk was there, as he had been invited by an acquaintance, there was never any solicitations of any kinds of services.”
The “Straight” episode on Yang Hyun Suk is set to air on May 27 at 8:55 p.m. KST.
