YG Entertainment & Avex come together to create YGEX!

A birth of a record label dedicated exclusively to YG FAMILY!

The name is “YGEX”, attributing to the collaboration of YG FAMILY “YG” with AVEX “EX”.
“EX” also inspired by words like “EXPERIENCE” and “EXCLUSIVE”, carries connotations of it being the one and only label you can experience YG FAMILY.

The collaboration between YG, not bound to just Asia now spreading as a worldwide trend “YG POP”, and AVEX who has always innovated and led the Japanese music scene, is definitely a match up bound to create a new and unpredictable form of entertainment.

What does this merger mean for Taeyang?

One of the main points from the press conference was that Big Bang will be working on solo projects and as a group. This is merely speculation on my part since this wasn’t discussed during the announcement but it is safe to assume that with the release of Taeyang’s solo album he will be promoting not only in South Korea but Japan as well.

    Do you happen to know of any info regarding big bang as a whole though? because isn’t their contract with Universal Japan binds them for at least 1 more album (after big bang and big bang 2) before they can break and switch to avex?

      That’s a very good question and one that I cannot answer because they didn’t go too heavily into the specifics during the press conference. But it’s safe to assume with the creation of this record label Big Bang has cut ties with Universal Japan. YGEX will start up operations in September with the debuts of 2NE1.
