On the 10th of the same month, YG’s blog, YG-Life, revealed a photo of a mystery girl to the public. Through netizens’ investigations, the mystery girl’s identity was immediately disclosed. According to them, the girl on the picture is Jenny Kim (17) from New Zealand. In response to this, YGE confirmed the information and couldn’t hide their surprise when they commented, “The name and age are right. She moved abroad when she was very little so we didn’t think her information would be discovered if we shared her picture in Korea.”
A month after, the company published a black and white photo of another mystery girl. With her “legendary” and “vintage” beauty, netizens were quick to dig up the identity of this girl. She was said to be Park Chanah (19), a former trainee on Starship Entertainment and rumored to be debuting as part of kpop group, Sistar. There were also rumours stating that she is Big Bang Seungri’s younger sister. Since YG did not confirm or denied anything, this mystery girl’s identity is still unknown; the only thing that we’re sure of is that she’s one potential member for the upcoming girl group.
Surprisingly, weeks after, on the 11th of May, a video clip of an unknown girl was revealed on YG-Life. In the video, you get to see a 16 year old girl dancing to the strong beats of Chris Brown’s Turn Up the Music. The video, taken during the group’s training session, blacked out the rest of the girls and highlighted this unknown girl’s every movement alone. With her flexibility and unquestionable skill, she is no doubt the mystery girl who received the most explosive interest from the public compared to the other mystery girls. Right at this moment, it has gathered a total of more than 2 million online views! The clip ends with a close up shot of the girl that says, “The 5th” and “Age: 16” In the space below her name and nationality, it only says, “Unknown”
According to Star News, YG did confirm that this girl is the fifth member of their new girl group. According to other source, this mystery girl was born in 1995 and is rumoured to be half Caucasian and half Korean. She is reported to be a trainee who spent quite some time training under YG Entertainment. However, different from what news articles are reporting, fans believe that she was the trainee from Thailand who got accepted in 2010 after YGE held an audition in the said place, by the name of Lalisa ‘Lalice’ Manoban.
