As the agency behind K-pop hits such as BIGBANG, 2NE1, WINNER, iKON, BLACKPINK, and more, YG Entertainment is an agency that countless trainees have dreamt of being a part of. Though the idol groups mentioned above are now full-fledged artists with various albums and awards under their belts, they were once young trainees, working hard each and every day to achieve their dreams of performing on stage.
YG Entertainment helped them to that stage, but they also had to give up certain things during their trainee years. Here are six things that trainees at YG need to contractually give up, as revealed by current YG artists.
The episode shows YG trainees showcasing their special and unique talents/charms in a 3-min video and BLACKPINK will be evaluating them. The video evaluation will pick 5 out of the 21 trainees who will have the chance to compete and challenge the Treasure 7 from the last performance evaluation.

YG Entertainment’s upcoming sitcom “YG Future Strategy Office” has released a hilarious new trailer!
The mockumentary sitcom stars BIGBANG’s Seungri as a highly ambitious employee who ends up relegated to the YG Future Strategy Office, a powerless department staffed by the company’s outsiders. In the new trailer, Seungri proudly boasts about the office’s importance within the company, while various real-life YG Entertainment employees share their less-than-flattering opinions of Seungri’s personality.
The star-studded trailer also features glimpses of iKON, BLACKPINK, Sunmi, Yoo Byung Jae, SECHSKIES’s Lee Jae Jin, and even Yang Hyun Suk himself—none of whom appear to be on Seungri’s side.
“YG Future Strategy Office” will be released on Netflix on October 5. In the meantime, check out the new trailer below!
All 8 Episodes of the sitcom can officially be viewed at Netflix: LINK
