Hye-jung tries to run, Dan-tae’s trust falters

Former Hawaii resident Yang Soo Kyung is made a singing comeback with her first TV appearance on KBS network in Korea this month in 16 years.

Yang was a popular and accomplished singer in the 1990s with nine albums. She debuted in 1987 and left the entertainment scene after marrying her manager, Byun Du-seop, in 1998.

Byun is known in Hawaii for purchasing the large Keaumoku parcel of land bordered by Rycroft and Liona Street for just under $50 million under the name Cuzco Development USA LLC in 2007, which has been in the news recently amid controversy.

Byun was also the CEO of Yedang Entertainment and died in mid-2013 in his office in Korea. Yang and Byun, along with their son, were residents of Honolulu and had big plans for the Keaumoku land as becoming a center for Korea town with K-pop concerts using his entertainment company’s entertainers along with restaurants and community center.
