Yang Hyun Suk’s Past Interview About Denying Rumors Of Blocking Drug Scandals Resurfaces

It’s very different from what he’s been accused of.

As Yang Hyun Suk was recently accused of interfering with iKON B.I‘s drug case back in 2016, his old interview has come to light where he denied all accusations about him using his influence to block drug scandals about his artists from being released.


In the interview from 2012, the host asks if rumors about YG Entertainment using its influence to block and interfere with YG artists’ drug scandals. He denied it all.

I think the public overestimates my capabilities. They think too powerful of Yang Hyun Suk, who is just a human. I honestly can’t meet their expectations.

All I do in YG is talk with my artists about their music and give them advice.

He claimed it was ridiculous to accuse him of it because he’s never had any experience with drug cases before. He also mentioned how it was impossible to use influence when the whole public had their eyes on it.

You need to have had some kind of relative experience to be able to block or interfere with these cases. The whole society had their eyes on the case. How would I have any say?

— Yang Hyun Suk


Most importantly, he predicted that if you try to use influence to block a criminal case, you’d end up in bigger trouble.

If you try to block these cases, you’d end up in bigger trouble. That’s how the world works these days.

Over 7 years later, Han Seo Hee claimed Yang Hyun Suk personally threatened her to change her testimony about B.I’s drug case. Yang Hyun Suk is currently being investigated by the police and prosecution about Han Seo Hee’s claims.
