[YG-LIFE] 130703 2NE1 first to kick off the start line of making a comeback… followed by scores of YG artists


And in October, the much-anticipated new girl group of YG will be unveiled. Each member of the group will be debuting as a solo. Consisting of 6 members whose average age is 17, the group will be debuting as a solo, and then will come together to form a group.

The founder of YG Entertainment, YANG HYUN-SUK, said, “The project initially started off with a plan of 10 or more members in the group, but throughout the years there has been a fierce competition among tens of tryout singers and now remain 6 members. Unfortunately Yuna Kim, who was discovered on Superstar K, had to be excluded from the team for personal reasons. However, Eunbi Kim, a contestant from the same program, remains as one of the 6 members.”

KIM JISOO and JENNIE KIM are few of the revealed members of the group. Last year YG revealed photographs of the two – KIM JISOO, who has a mysterious aura with a beautiful look, and JENNIE KIM, who looked like a pretty doll with stunning rapping skills. The fans are already looking forward to seeing the new group. Music lovers are especially excited to see JENNIE KIM, as she appeared as the main character in G-DRAGON’s music video. Another member, who is half Korean, is said to be an amazing dancer.

When will YG’s new girl group make their debut?

We are planning October for YG’s new girl group’s debut. The group has been preparing for a long time at YG – their debut is YG’s first one in 4 years since BigBang’s debut in 2006 and 2NE1’s in 2009.

The trilingual members are fluent in Korean, English and Japanese. Despite their young age, an average of 17 year old, they are arousing deep attention not only in Korea but also overseas.

How many members in the group?

The project initially started off with a plan of 10 or more members in the group, but throughout the years there has been a fierce competition among tens of tryout singers and now remain 6 members.

Unfortunately Yuna Kim, who was discovered on Superstar K, had to be excluded from the team for personal reasons. However, Eunbi Kim, a contestant from the same program, remains as one of the 6 members.

What is the promotional tactic of the new girl group?

We are adopting a debut method that is utterly different from the conventional debuting ways that was applied to other YG girl groups. From October, we will be debuting one or two members at a time to see whether they are apt for the public. When we can see that the audience likes them, then we will move on to forming a proper group.

BigBang’s all five members, on the other hand, made a debut as a group and then started working on their own work. It will help you understand better when I say that we are going the completely opposite direction with YG’s new girl group.

In a nutshell, each member makes a debut first, and then they will come together to form a group.

[NEWS] 130123 YG Officially Drops 1 Trainee From New Girl Group


YG’s new girl group is still shrouded in mystery, but after revealing 2 confirmed members (Kim Jisoo and Jennie Kim), that mysterious cloud is slowly dissipating. But, to many fans, it’s disappearing at a very slow rate. However, to tickle the fans’ interest, YG recently dropped another hint to the girl group formation.

On January 23, an official at YG Entertainment shared, “Yuna Kim and Kim Eun Bi were strong candidates for the new girl group, but one of them has been dropped. Because CEO Yang Hyung Suk was directly involved in the girl group’s selection and training process, not much news have been leaked out. These two girls were set to debut with the girl group even up to late last year and the atmosphere at YG looked favorable at their inclusion, but why one of them has been dropped- no one explained.”

YG posted a practice clip of the two covering Sam Sparro’s “Black and Gold” early last year, (You can watch it here) where they showcase their singing and rapping talents. Both girls have their unique voice color, making it a disappointment knowing one of them will not be included in YG’s next girl group.

Both girls are final contestants from the audition program “Super Star K.” Kim Eunbi was a contestant in Season 2 while Yuna Kim particpated in Season 3. Kim Eunbi received a lot of interest in 2011 for her enhanced beauty after losing 8kg. Meanwhile, Yuna Kim is known as “Female Jo Kwon” for her funny charms and wit that she had demonstrated on the audition program.

This new girl group is also being called, “YG’s Girls’ Generation.” The girls are known to be natural beauties who have never received plastic surgery treatment of any kind. President Yang stated, “I started this group because I thought it would be interesting to see a group of pretty girls who can also sing hip hop music.”

[NEWS] 120831 G-Dragon Rumored To Be The Main Producer of YG’s New Girl Group

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.
