So it’s The Black Label for Park Bo Gum, as the highly sought after free agent actor has picked his next work home. Earlier it was rumored he would join HYBE with good friend V but he’s picking another hyped (haha) label with big name music stars. He’s signing with YG Entertainment subsidiary The Black Label, run by producers Teddy and Kush, and home to Taeyang, Zion. T, Jeon So Mi, Lee Jun Young, and basically way more music stars than acting. I’m curious what the thinking is for signing with what started as a YG music spinoff but heck if he’s going to anchor their acting push then that’s a challenge worth undertaking.

I have mixed feelings about him singing with TBL. I am very happy and excited that he is achieving his lifelong dream of becoming a musician, despite having a tremendous acting career he never left his passion for music and that speaks volumes. I am just worried his acting career will take a backseat since its a music agency. Bogum will receive love calls regardless of agency but the question is will the agency be able to do a good job promoting/managing him as an actor. If TBL can create an exclusive team for him that is specialized in managing his acting-music activities like EDAM did for IU then that’s perfect. If he has an exclusive team in the future he can also create his own agency if he wishes too.
It is interesting to see both Taeyang and PBG move to The BLack Label within the same month or so. Clearly something is brewing. Indeed, no doubt an IPO is in the works. I would not be surprised to see Blackpink being offered shares to move to there as well before The Black Label goes public. TBL could well be a powerhouse label and agency in the making.
At first, I was kinda dissappointed but now this is actually exciting. Let’s face it, music is really important to him and now that he has joined a music agency I’m curious on what he has in store. more over TBL has rapper, hiphop vibes so to see the usually cute bogummy in this environment is intriguing. Always wish the best for him.
It will be mutually beneficial for both! Bogum working with musicians will sutely harness his musical talents. Bogummy working with TBL-YG can also give him international connections and widen his appeal.We are in full suppprt of you Bpgum!
