The articles released are actually focusing on how YGE’s market shares and profit have increased in the year. They said that the growth rate will be at 30%-40% for next year, which is more than pretty good. I won’t dwell there though.The article talked about YGE’s plans for next year, though it sounds like a summary of expectations and plans only, and not anything concrete. Well, we all know about YG by now, and know that nothing is set in stone. But here’s what the article says:
“In the first half of next year, YG is expected to debut its new rookie group; Big Bang is also scheduled for a comeback next fall. YG is also expected to expand its lineup with the girl group that they are also planning to debut next year, four years after the debut of their successful girl group, 2NE1. Psy is also expected to release an album in the US, maybe February or March of next year, and also a world tour. He will continue to do his highly successful local concerts also. In summer of next year, the YG Family Concert tour and2NE1′s Concert tour are also scheduled. Former Mnet ‘Superstar K2′ contestant Kang Seung Yoon will also debut next year.“
For all these activities, market consultants and analysts expect a continuing growth for YGE, especially with a lot of activity coming from them in the first half of the year.
A lot of debuts, right? But no mention of 2NE1′s comeback. I guess that the girls might be coming back before the summer, because if they’re planning a summer concert tour for the girls, they must have new material, right? Here’s to hoping that we will have news of the girls’ comeback soon! YGE has a lot of plans, I just hope that they translate to actual events. Hoping for the best for 2NE1!
