Tae Hyun Kim, May 25, 2018, 9:17 a.m.
Yang Hyun Suk interviewed with Sports Chosun, a media outlet to explain 'K-Pop Star 4' winner Katie Kim leaving YG entertainment on May 25. YG responded that after discussing with Katie Kim's desired pursuit of music, Katie Kim wanted to pursue music closer to North America due to being raised there from 10 to 21 years of age. Therefore, YG provided the resources to best cater to her preferences, allowing her to go back and forth from Korea and North America. However, because the former YG employee who was in charge of promoting her and scheduling her debut went independent, Katie Kim decided to move to another label that the former YG employee established. Yang Hyun Suk added that YG will be distributing her debut album songs and maintain connections with the label she moved to. He asked the fans to keep an eye out for her debut.
