Nice work if you can get it! YG Entertainment — the agency home to household name idol stars such as Big Bang and 2NE1 — are known for taking good care of their artists.
Most recently, the company signed a contract with rising TV personality Yoo Byung Jae and are making headlines in Korea today as they have gifted him a luxury private home!
The agency announced that the 27-year-old show host-slash-actor-slash-screenwriter will be accommodated in a 1,776-square-foot residence in Seoul in order to help the artist “concentrate on his work.”
Sources also say that that it was YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk’s first priority to find housing for Yoo once he signed with the agency.
The rising star entered the spotlight in 2012 when he became a writer on the third season of tvN’s live comedy show SNL Korea, after which he subsequently joined the cast of the sketch series for the next three seasons.
