YG Entertainment concerts celebrating the 15th anniversary of the agency’s founding were successfully held in Japan, attracting over 200,000 people.

“YG Family Concert” held Saturday and Sunday at Saitama Super Arena, located north of Tokyo, featured most of the agency’s popular K-pop stars including Big Bang, 2NE1, Gummy, Jinusean, Se7en, Psy and Tablo. The artists heated up the show with joint performances as well as their hit songs.

Gummy performed with Komuro Tetsuya, one of Japan’s top music producers and a member of the group “Globe.”

“I am honored to be performing with Gummy. If there is another opportunity, I would like to be on stage with her again,” said Tetsuya, who sung his song “Departures” with the Korean singer on stage.

Gummy replied that she had always wanted to try the song and that she was honored to be performing it with the original composer/writer.

The YG Entertainment singers returned to Seoul on Monday.

Established by Yang Hyun-suk, a former member of the legendary 1990s band Seo Taiji & Boys, YG is currently one of the three biggest entertainment agencies in South Korea along with SM and JYP.
