K-pop Gangnam mogul resigns as head of YG Entertainment

K-pop mogul Yang Hyun-suk resigned Friday as head of South Korea’s major record agency YG Entertainment amid drug and sex scandals that have rocked his company, reports AFP.

Yang, founder and chief producer of YG Entertainment, said he would “step down from all positions and responsibilities” in the agency effective Friday.

His younger brother Yang Min-suk, who is the company CEO, also announced his resignation.

Himself a member of the popular boyband Seo Tae Ji and Boys in the 1990s, Yang Hyun-suk developed YG into a K-pop powerhouse with the success of idol groups such as BIGBANG and BLACKPINK.
