Directions to YG Entertainment (YG 엔터테인먼트)

If you have been reading my previous posts, you might have noticed that I am a K-Pop fan and two of my favorite groups belong to YG Entertainment: BIGBANG and 2NE1. Actually, I like a lot of other YG artists, actors and models too!

On my previous post, I provided a step-by-step guide on how to go to Cube Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, FNC Entertainment and SM Entertainment (read more here), and as promised, here is a step-by-step guide on how I was able to go to YG Entertainment. Since today is G-Dragon‘s (Kwon Ji Yong) birthday, I am dedicating this post to him. Happy birthday Ji Yong ssi! Saranghae! :-*

I went to visit other entertainment agencies during the earlier part of the day, so it was already quite dark when I went to YG Entertainment. Compared to the previous entertainment agencies I went to, where I had to walk quite a long distance from the subway, going to YG Entertainment is easier.

1) From Line 2 Hapjeong Station (합정역) Exit 8, just walk straight ahead and you will see the following buildings, (mostly motels/hotels) as you go towards YG Entertainment.

2) You will pass by Hotel Circle and SK gas station, just keep walking straight ahead until you reach Lee Mart which is also just across Proud Apartment.

3) Turn right on Lee Mart then cross the street towards Proud Apartment which is on your left side. You should reach the entrance of Proud Apartment and you will see a street sign Huiujeong-ro 1 gil (희우정로 1길).

4) YG Entertainment Building is on the same side as Proud Apartment. It is also near a GS25 convenience store and a Kimchi/Seaweed Museum (yellow building) is on the other side of the street.

It was in early April 2015 when I went here. Back then, BIGBANG is still preparing to launch their MADE series album. I was tempted to stay and wait for a chance to catch a glimpse of them (just in case they were recording at that time) but the cold weather stopped me from doing so. Overall, I like how unique YG Entertainment looks like. It looks modern and artistic, just like their talented artists.

I hope YG will host an event where they will give fans a chance to tour YG building and eat at YG cafeteria or perhaps watch artists as they practice or record their album. I know it is a far-fetched wish, but I’m still crossing my fingers it would happen soon.

Cannot get enough of your favorite YG artists? Why not visit them at YG Entertainment using this guide, who knows it might be your lucky day to spot your favorite artist!

  2. Hi @leitbloomer.com I am an avid follower. Your YG Entertainment direction blog was spot on because I followed your direction and got there. I just have to comment that the Lee Mart mentioned was under construction last time, wonder if it is still Lee Mart, plus when they get to that part…they have to look up since YG is a tall bldg, they can see from a distance if they are going towards the right way. When you get to the part where there are like a lot of streets branching out, you begin to wonder if you are on the right path. The area seems to be a residential (quiet) except for the museum nearby. And since today is Bigbang’s 10th Anniversary kindly do a blog on where we could buy Bigbang merchandise in Korea. It’s unfortunate that YG doesn’t cater so much for fans to make them what SM did for their fans like SM Town in CoEX Mall.
    Nice to know we love the same artist in YG Ent. (most esp GD baby baby). Continue posting because you are an awesome read.

    1. Hello Cilk T! Thank you for supporting my blog and for the updates and tips regarding the directions to YG Entertainment ^_^ Regarding Bigbang’s official merchandise, you can also buy them at KLive in Lotte Fitin Mall near Dongdaemun Design Plaza. I will look for other physical stores that sell their merchandise and gather some more information so I can do a blog post on that too, great suggestion, keep them coming! Hope we can fangirl together and go to Monsant in Jeju and check in at Dolce Vita someday so we can meet our in-laws or maybe get lucky and bumped into GD too haha! ^_^
