Zico Talks About Running His Agency, Says He Wants To Collaborate With CL, And More
In an interview with the outlet Ilgan Sports, Block B’s Zico chatted about his new agency and more!
In January, Zico started his own agency KOZ Entertainment. Zico was asked what his standards are when he’s discovering new artists, and he described how he prefers artists who aren’t restricted to one position and who can perform with a vibe that encompasses both underground and mainstream styles. “I want to take in artists who are considerably talented but are restricted in their activities,” he said. “I want to play the role of helping them so they can develop their talents. I don’t care about things like whether or not they started out as idols.”
On what it’s like to run an agency, Zico said, “I still haven’t physically felt like it’s tiring or too much. It’s not at such an expanded level yet either. I’m at the stage where I’m laying the foundation. Since I’m the only artist at the agency right now, I need to work hard at my work as Zico.”
When asked whether he’s most comfortable being a singer, producer, or head of an agency, Zico named being a producer. He explained, “You’re able to release your work without being in the spotlight, so it’s less pressure mentally.”
Zico was also asked to name an artist he’d like to collaborate with. “I want to work with CL,” he shared. “I think if we had the chance, we could have fun working together. I don’t know her at all. If we were to really work together, there’s something I have in mind that I want to do.”
Zico recently released his album “THINKING.”
