The deal will allow RBW to manage Yong’s artiste career in Korea
SINGAPORE, Aug. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — RBW, a global content producer and agency of female quartet, Mamamoo, and boy band, ONEUS, inks a deal with lawyer and CEO David Yong.
“We recently signed an agency contract with David Yong,” RBW said last week. “Based on our experience in planning and producing artistes using our incubation system, we will support David Yong to appear in various contents as an influencer CEO by applying the same process as the artiste system, and we will support various activities by planning and producing albums and contents.”
RBW signs a memorandum of understanding with Yong’s Evergreen Group Holdings to expand its Southeast Asian business and plans to distribute artiste music content from RBW, DSP Media, and WM Entertainment to the global market. This includes conducting various K-content derivatives such as co-production of global artistes, OEM production of overseas artistes, and K-POP training programs.
