WINNER got harsh words from YG for the songs that they wrote. Yang Hyunsuk said, “Anyone can compose. However, it depends on how you do it.” making the members feel the tension.
He also said, “The public has very high expectations just because you are the second BIGBANG. The improvements that you made in ‘WIN’ program are not enough. The public has to feel ‘this is YG’s music’. You have to feel uncomfortable and desperate more than anyone else. It’s not like you are going to succeed just because you are from YG. You will still have to compete against hundreds of teams. Everything will end once you think you’re good.” YG didn’t hesitate to
give harsh remarks.
