YG Entertainment has confirmed January 2013 for the official debut of their new girl group.
CEO Yang Hyun Suk commented that a new girl group would debut next January.
Yang Hyun Suk commented, “G-Dragon is currently producing their new album, but due to his solo comeback, it is taking a bit longer for their album to come out. We also have other artists such Epik High, 2NE1 and Taeyang making a comeback at the end of this year so the girl group will be making their debut next January.”
They also chose next January so that they could start off the year fresh and reveal themselves to the public first before any other girl group.
YG’s official blog has been revealing images of the 5 members of the group.
Two of the members were contestant’s of music audition programs and the others are Jenni Kim, who was revealed in G-Dragon’s music video and another mystery girl.
They did not reveal much more about the group. Many are curious to see the new group as YG has not come out with another girl group since 2NE1 in 2009.
2NE1 & Taeyang to comeback in November, YG Entertainment to debut new girl group in January 2013
YG Entertainment will be unveiling their new girl group in January 2013.
CEO Yang Hyun Suk revealed, “YG Entertainment’s new girl group will debut into the music scene in January of next year. G-Dragon is in charge of the overall production of their debut album. But since he’s promoting his own solo album, the debut date was pushed back a bit. On top of that, Epik High will make their comeback and LEE Hi will debut this month. 2NE1 and Taeyang will be releasing their new songs in November, so the new girl group will be debuting next year in January. Another reason January was chosen is because we wanted to start YG’s new year with the new girl group.”
YG Entertainment had introduced the 5 members of the new girl group through YG-Life in April and May. The members are Kim Eun Bi, born in 1993 and a top 6 contestant of ‘Superstar K2’, Yuna Kim from ‘Superstar K3’, Jenny Kim, and two mystery girls who have high talent, one of whom is half Korean and half Caucasian.
YG Entertainment said, “We still can’t release any information such as how many members are in the final group.”
