I’ll level with you, folks. When I first saw the YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk, I honestly thought that the man had some kind of genetic deformation that made him either physically or mentally deficient … or both. I mean, seriously, the guy looks like a bad case of trans-gene stem-cell research or something out of the fucking Frankenstein laboratory.
Well, it looks like my preconception of Mr. Yang was not without its merits, because it was recently revealed in an interview that “Papa YG” was a pretty shitty student in elementary school.
The report showed a lot of ‘yang‘ grades, which embarrassed Yang Hyun Suk quite a bit. Yang is equivalent to a D grade, which normally ranges from 60-70%.
Really? Who the fuck actually gets Ds in elementary school? How exactly do you fail at coloring pretty pictures and showing the class your pet turtle?

Letting a weed-smoking twink run around pretending to have “swag” may have possibly been the worst decision ever made in the history of the world (second only to allowing a certain female singer fuck up her image by replacing all the tissue in her face with silicon and bags of saline).
