120514 ygngg_2NE1

YG Entertainment recently revealed yet another ‘mystery girl’.

On May 11th, YG Entertainment released a video teaser featuring a potential member of the agency’s upcoming girl group on the YG-Life Blog. The new mystery girl seems to have outstanding dancing skills and, according to reports by media and fans, is rumored to be a 16-year-old half Caucasian and half Korean trainee from Thailand.

With three ‘mystery girls’ in total, including Kim Eunbi and Euna Kim, who were already known to the public through Mnet’s ‘Superstar K’, it seems like the members and overall structure of the new upcoming group shows several similarities to 2NE1, who made a powerful and impacting debut into the Korean music industry in 2009.

First, despite her young age of only 17, Kim Eunbi was one of the Top 6 finalists in 2010’s ‘Superstar K2’. Many are anticipating that she will most likely be the main vocal or the ‘Park Bom’ of this new group. During the second season of ‘Superstar K’, Eunbi showed her quirky and honest personality that captured the hearts of many male fans, which seems similar to 2NE1 Park Bom’s four-dimensional and dorky personality.

In addition, Euna Kim, who showed her talents and rapping skills in ‘Superstar K3’ last year, could be connected to 2NE1’s CL. Euna Kim proved her potential and capabilities in rapping through her cover of Sam Sparro’s “Black and Gold” with Kim Eunbi. Other than that, her English proficiency and background in the United States seem to be similar to CL.

The second ‘mystery girl’, who was revealed on May 4th, gained attention from the public through her innocent and beautiful appearance. Although there hasn’t been much information revealed about this member, many are speculating her to be handling the ‘visual’ role of the group, which reminds us of 2NE1’s Sandara Park.

It has been said that the third ‘mystery girl’ revealed on the 11th is one of the best dancers from YG, with a fantastic sense of rhythm and powerful moves. Although she is only 16 years old, the video clip revealed shows her flexibility and skills in dancing to fast beats. This member seems to parallel with the ‘dancing-machine’ and the youngest member of 2NE1, Minzy.

These 16-20 year old girls have been taking away the search rankings on various Korean portal sites each time they were revealed through the YG-Life Blog. It seems like the marketing strategy by YG to reveal each ‘mystery girl’ one by one to build up anticipation has been a success so far.

Recently, there have been many girl groups making their debut in the industry. However, this upcoming girl group from YG Entertainment has been gaining a huge amount of attention from the media and public despite the fact that only a few members have been revealed. This is incredibly similar to when 2NE1 made their debut. 2NE1 transformed the definition of K-Pop girl groups, from innocent and cute looking to powerful hip-hop warriors. 2NE1 was a revolutionary group that swept the music charts during their debut, and now many are anticipating whether this new girl group will be able to follow in their footsteps.

YG has been trying to hide the personal information of these members and have been keeping them in complete ‘mystery’. With YG’s impressive marketing strategies, ability to set a new trend in the industry, and their top-class trainees, many are excited to see what this new group will bring to the K-Pop world.

120508 yggirlgroup

Ever since photos of YG Entertainment’s new girl group members have been released, fans have been showing a lot of interest in the group and especially in the members’ young ages.

What they found interesting is that the members revealed so far are all born between 1993 and 1996.

Kim Eunbi is the oldest of the group as she was born in 1993. Kim Eunbi first appeared on ‘Superstar K2’, and made it to the top 6 with her vocal talent. Another confirmed member is Euna Kim who was born in 1994. She failed to make it to the top 10 of ‘Superstar K3’, but impressed viewers with her overflowing talent and potential.

The other two mystery girls are actually younger than Kim Eunbi and Euna Kim. The first mystery girl whose name is Jenny Kim was born in ’96, and has been training at YG since a very young age. The second mystery girl was born in ’95, and is garnering interest for her innocent and pretty face.

[NEWS] 120511 What Will YG’s New Girl Group Be Like?

120511 ygngg1

This article will try to figure out what kind of direction YG Entertainment’s new girl group will be going for, according to what information we do have about the members and YG Entertainment’s past groups.

The first interesting piece of information that we learned about the new girl group is that they have a “no plastic surgery clause” in the contract for the members. Also, we know that the group will have more than seven members. (Some sources say that there are 10 individuals training to be members of the group)

Now, here are the pictures of the revealed members.

The First Member: Kim Eun Bi From Superstar K2

On November 21, 2011 we found out that Super Star K2’s Kim Eun Bi would be a part of the group. She made it to Top Six during Mnet’s “Superstar K2” and was signed by YGE shortly after her elimination.

Kim Eun Bi’s vocal talents were already shown through “Superstar K2,” I think it is safe to assume that she will be one of the main vocalists.

The Second Member: Kim Euna

120511 ygngg2 euna

She was on the third season of Superstar K as a contestant. On the show she showed a spunky attitude reminiscent of Jo Kwon from 2AM. It looks like she can sing, and she will also play a big role when the girl group appears on variety shows.

The Third Member: Jennie Kim


Hailing from Australia New Zealand, she has a girl-next-door look.

The Fourth Member: ???


We don’t really know anything about her except that she has a more innocent look to her!

The Fifth Member: ???

120511 ygngg3 lisa

We know that she is 16, she can dance, and she is half-Caucasian, Half-Korean. Check out her dance video here. I am going to out on a limb and assume that they showed her dancing video because she will be the dancer of the group.

So if we sum up the information from what we know about the group, it looks like we have two singers, one variety show specialist, and one dancer. I wouldn’t be surprised if the sixth or seventh member of the group will be shown rapping. Because, with YG groups rapping is integral! (Except in Big Mama’s case)

Guesses About the New Girl Group

In my mind the two things about all YG Entertainment groups is that they are very unique, in that they have their own color and there is a lot of rapping in their songs. I firmly believe that this will also be the same for the new girl group.

The new girl group will debut sometime in September, stay tuned for more details.

[NEWS] 120508 Music industry insiders speculate that YG’s new girl group will debut in September

120508 yggirlgroup

YG Entertainment’s new girl group has been garnering a lot of interest among K-pop fans even before their debut. Every time YG released a new photo of a potential girl group member, the reveals immediately ranked #1 on various portal sites. This has left fans to naturally question when their actual debut will be.

YG has currently revealed 4 potential members so far, with 2 members confirmed for the girl group. Similar to 2NE1’s debut in 2009, YG has been very careful in the way they release information about the debut of their new artists. The agency has kept their mouth shut on any information concerning the members of the new girl group and their debut, always offering the vague answer of “nothing has been confirmed yet”.

Despite the vague answers and lack of details, there are rumors within the music industry that YG’s new girl group is set to debut in the coming fall around September.

On May 8th insiders in the music industry revealed to Star News, “YG always meticulously prepares and shows their unique marketing strategy before a group’s debut. Just because they revealed some information about the new members does not mean they will publicly reveal this group right away. Producing the perfect song that matches with the new girl group’s style and image will take at least a couple of months. When you look at this from multiple perspectives, there is a great possibility that this new girl group will debut around September. This prediction also takes into account that YG has previously mentioned that the debut of the group will take place within this year.”

Currently, there are only two members, Euna Kim and Kim Eun Bi, confirmed for the new girl group, while the other two still have yet to be officially confirmed by the agency.
