Congrats Teddy……?

AllKpop list 10Asia’s 10 People for 2009 for South Korea’s entertainment industry.

Saved the best for last, yes? YG Entertainment‘s finest–and I mean FINEST–hit maker. The brains behind most of YG Family’s biggest hits this year is none other than former 1TYM leader, Teddy. From 2NE1‘s chart topping debut mini album to Taeyang‘s smooth and sexy R&B beats, plus an offer to work with superstar Lady GaGa, Teddy has established himself as one of the most sought after producers in the k-pop industry. Here’s to another successful year, Teddy!

Teddy turn down his opportunity to work with Lady Gaga in order to focus on 2NE1?He was offer but he turn it down cause he didn’t have the time at least that is what Teddy and Yang Hyun Suk claim at first.His reasoning for not working with Lady Gaga just seem somewhat bias to his profession as a producer.

“I think that the music producer plays the part of setting a middle ground between what the composer was aiming for and the singer’s intention. There were a lot of times when I was offered a large amount of money to compose and produce, but I turned the offer down because Ididn’t know that singer perfectly. I think that’s why I’ve only worked with YG artists so far.”

Note:The only artist Teddy has worked outside YG is Lee Hyori “Anyclub” and H-Eugene “Shorty”.

Brave Brothers I would think was the bigger producer since he has work with so many K-pop stars and is getting his own mini movie.No offense but thus far none of Brave Brothers songs has been accused of plagiarism.The reasoning for picking the top 10 seem kinda vague.

“top stars who attained the most popularity from the public, but people who changed the landscape of Korea’s entertainment industry and stimulated the public with experiences that we had not had before.”

I am so disappointed that Rain was not mention of this “top 10” list.Actor Lee Byund Hun is mention for being in G.I Joe and IRIS.Rain was in Ninja Assassin was the role to stereo typical for viewers taste or gory?Rain also has launch his own entertainment company J.Tune which is MBLAQ label.Finish his second world tour Legend of Rainsim and has become an international star.He is hitting both hemispheres and creating a much bigger impact.He even has his own clothing like Six to Five. Rain is achieving a lot and he is only in his late 20’s yet he is hardly getting notice.Come on Rain is becoming his own freaking empire,give him some credit.

I like Teddy but I feel his reasoning for recognition on this was quite misleading.
