Big Bang‘s G-Dragon is rumored to be the main producer for YG Entertainment‘s highly anticipated new girl group!
According to industry insiders, G-Dragon is said to be producing for the new group, who plans to make a debut this October with a song produced by G-Dragon himself.
G-Dragon is already well-known for the many songs he has written and composed for Big Bang’s albums as well as his own solo albums. However, it is the first time that G-Dragon will be acting as the main producer for any group, and thus, the news is already attracting much attention even before the girl group’s debut.
With G-Dragon said to be the main producer for the group, many are speculating that the group is sure to have a different style than that of 2NE1, as the main producer for 2NE1 is Teddy.
The talented young idol is said to have already written quite a few songs for the new group, and he’ll also be including one of the members, Jennie Kim, in his ‘That XX‘ music video, which will be revealed on September 1st.
But that’s not all! G-Dragon, who is returning with a solo album after 3 years, is also rumored to have recruited another member from the girl group to feature in one of his songs from the upcoming solo album.
The girls from the upcoming group that we have seen so far include ‘Superstar K2‘s Kim Eun Bi(1993), ‘Superstar K3‘s Euna Kim (1994), and Jennie Kim, as well as the other two mysterious girls, whose names have not been released to the public. YG Entertainment is continuing to hold their silence on the number of members the girl group will include and other details.
G-Dragon to Produce Album of YGE’s New Girl Group
G-Dragon will join the producing team of YG Entertainment’s upcoming girl group, it was reported on August 31.
“G-Dragon will join YGE’s new girl group as their producer. This is the first time for G-Dragon to produce someone else’s album,” an official was quoted as saying.
“Other top YG producers will also be part of the production team, so it’s hard to say G-Dragon’s producing the entire album. But we decided to have G-Dragon participate (in producing) to help give the girl group a unique sound,” it added.
G-Dragon has been busy with his first solo album in three years, which is set for release on September 1. His title track, “That XX,” will feature Jennie Kim, one of the members of YGE’s new girl group, while some of his other tracks will also feature a few of the new girl group members.
It is unclear how many members in total the new girl group will have. They are scheduled to debut sometime in October.
Prior to the debut of YG Entertainment’s rookie girlgroup, member Kim Jennie’s veil has been finally taken off.
On the 30th through YG-life blog, Kim Jennie’s video has been released surprisingly. The video was about a minute long and the said member was introduced and described as “YG Trainee, 16 years of age, skillful in speaking Korean, English and Japanese.”
On the video introduction, Kim Jennie’s colorful profile picture has been unfolded. She was smiling brightly which entirely showed off her cute personality.
In addition to this, Jennie sang B.O.B’s “Strange Clouds” stylishly yet very powerful. She has showed off quite unusual skills, most especially her strong sense of rhythm.
It is very much unusual of YG to release a video of their trainees like this. Yang Hyun Suk is well-known for his pursuit of perfection and being very careful of releasing videos and photos to the public before the debut period of their trainees. An extension to this, the members’ profiles up until now are still not revealed.
But as Kim Jennie’s debut is about to come,it seems like YG’s way of thinking has changed. As a known member of YG’s new girlgroup, she has been given the spot to be the female lead character on Bigbang’s G-Dragon’s newest music video.
Regarding Kim Jennie, YG representatives said “Among the trainees on the agency, we have heard a lot saying her beauty resembles Jun Ji Hyun’s and SNSD’s Sooyoung’s.” In connection to this, YG officials said “The girlgroup will officially debut on October”, but they still remained quiet regrading the final number of members and such.
