More details on January debut of YG Entertainment’s new girl group


YG Entertainment has announced that its new girl group will be unveiled on January 15th of 2013.

On December 20th, CEO Yang Hyun Suk revealed, “Everything about the new girl group that we’ve prepared for so long will be revealed on January 15th.

He also shared that the members of the girl group are not yet confirmed, stating, “We’ve recorded each member’s practice sessions over a long period of time, and though it’s not a survival competition, we’ll be eliminating 1-2 revealed members.”

Yang Hyun Suk added, “An existing member who was previously revealed to the public has already left YG’s new girl group,” increasing curiosity about the group’s final members.

YG will be posting videos of the members on its official homepage mid-January, and afterwards, the final members and debut song will be confirmed. The CEO also revealed, “YG’s new girl group will be vastly different than existing girl groups. We’ve decided that the members need to be acknowledged by the public before their debut, and we’re planning a fresh promotional strategy.”

YG Entertainment previously introduced Kim Eun Bi, one of the top six contestants on ‘Superstar K2‘, Yuna Kim from the US auditions of ‘Superstar K‘, Jenny Kim, the second mysterious girl, and a 16-year-old girl of mixed heritage as part of the members of the group.

Should we bet on the delay

mizzyoung 20th-Dec-2012 09:10 pm (UTC)
But WHY must you do this? If Lalice gets cut, I'm gonna hurt someone >:l
sunshine2163 20th-Dec-2012 09:11 pm (UTC)
i won't believe it until i see it. what happened to 2ne1's comeback? what are they the redheaded step-children of YG? Please get your shit together Yg before you lose a massive amount of fans.
racquelle2005 OT20th-Dec-2012 09:16 pm (UTC)
am I the only blackjack who feels like the rest of the fandom is overreacting? In every YG post all you see is complaining its like really =/ The girls will release the album when its/they are ready.
fantaesticbaby Re: OT20th-Dec-2012 09:18 pm (UTC)
idk considering YG cut promotions and then said they were going to have a comeback before the end of 2012 and then changed his mind again... i feel like we're justified in being pissed off.
fantaesticbaby 20th-Dec-2012 09:17 pm (UTC)
Maybe i'm being pessimistic but honestly I can't believe they'll debut in January...

(and what about 2NE1 -___-)

"YG will be posting videos of the members on its official homepage mid-January, and afterwards, the final members and debut song will be confirmed."

He didn't say they will debut in January, they didn't even record their debut song yet.
g_odalisque13 20th-Dec-2012 10:54 pm (UTC)
so basically for the past year and a half, all the girls have been sweating it out, wondering if they're even going to be in the group? that's pretty cruel honestly.
pepper 20th-Dec-2012 09:19 pm (UTC)
Just debut them already! I hope the dancer isn't the one who has left already. :|
goldilocks2 20th-Dec-2012 09:22 pm (UTC)
Mmn :/ i wont believe until i see it.
jeit91 20th-Dec-2012 09:26 pm (UTC)
as long as they keep the thai girl and yuna.
jenny can leave tho
izabera 20th-Dec-2012 09:28 pm (UTC)
So it sounds like starting from 15th January YG will broadcast something similar to the Big Bang debut documentary?

It must be something else because this doesn't sound like a 'fresh promotional strategy' for the girl group.
frantastic 20th-Dec-2012 09:31 pm (UTC)
oh YG...
sharpietoday 20th-Dec-2012 09:35 pm (UTC)
So its not going to be 7 members anymore?

yingmoon26 20th-Dec-2012 09:56 pm (UTC)
"YG’s new girl group will be vastly different than existing girl groups"

just curious how that will be possible considering every single type of girl group concept and style has already been done and redone...
laceandskin 20th-Dec-2012 10:04 pm (UTC)
I don't even expect anything anymore.
soramai 20th-Dec-2012 10:19 pm (UTC)
Who left ? who?

fantaesticbaby 20th-Dec-2012 10:59 pm (UTC)
your icon is beautiful <3
markthatcoin 20th-Dec-2012 10:24 pm (UTC)
January 15 is really frickin soon considering they will have to redo the studio recordings and choreo every time they decide to change the lineup
kotetsu 20th-Dec-2012 10:41 pm (UTC)
what a train wreck.
memorian 20th-Dec-2012 10:45 pm (UTC)
Why does YG have to announce that 1-2 girls are going to eliminated :/ that always just sounds so sad... then they're going to be known as the 1-2 girls that were dropped from the group.

Also im sure they won't be out till march. or even summer.....I don't even know.
fabledlamb 20th-Dec-2012 11:07 pm (UTC)
IA, I always prefer it if the elimination process of a group is done internally. I'm not all that interested in viewing profiles or videos of trainees who we might never see again in the future. Making a public event out of the selection process is kind of cruel to the girls who have to leave and also to the people who liked them but won't see their favorite make it into the final line-up.

It's kind of a cheap way to build up hype for the group's debut but it's not like YG hasn't done it before :(
asnindie 20th-Dec-2012 10:56 pm (UTC)
YG really does have some a-hole Alpha complex doesn't he. To get netizens to crush girls dreams. People choose basic members rather than letting themselves to get to know a member who could turn out to be great. W/e seems like Supearls is nowhere to be found and that's what were keeping me interested in YG debuts.
lee_chikin 20th-Dec-2012 11:00 pm (UTC)
This is getting as ridiculous and long as EXO's teasing campaign.
defiasco 20th-Dec-2012 11:00 pm (UTC)
im pretty excited cos the top three girls are GORGEOUS. like actress-gorgeous. usually groups have filler members but damn the top three seem to be oozing charisma just from the pics. im guessing the bottom two are the "talent" ?
ashiva 20th-Dec-2012 11:16 pm (UTC)
I don't believe anything this guy says at this point before it actually happens. Also if YG had had any sense 2NE1 would have made their comeback at the start of December and ended their promotions at the end of January 'cause now spring is looking really crowded for YG in Korea:

Lee Hi's solo album
Kang Seung Yoon's debut
New girl group debut
Taeyang's solo album
GD's solo album
2NE1's album
