SEOUL, June 14 (Yonhap) -- The head of South Korean entertainment powerhouse YG Entertainment offered to resign Friday over rising drug allegations against its artists.

"As of today, I want to put down all my titles and duties at YG Entertainment," said Yang Hyun-suk, CEO and chief producer of YG Entertainment, which manages BIGBANG. "I hope that my beloved YG artists and their fans are not harmed by me."
