Uh-oh, one trainee confirmed to be cut off YG's 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, 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.

Many who dream to be singers know how difficult it is to be picked as a trainee at YG Entertainment. Some at Soompi can relate, having participated in the auditions from the agency with undesired results. However, it doesn’t get easier after one officially becomes a trainee at the company as all other trainees are just as qualified. And with such skilled talents, the stakes are naturally raised and the competition becomes that much more fierce. The selection process for this girl group is not any different and even a “confirmed” member last year is no longer one this year.

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.”

Who got kicked out?

Kim Eunbi
47(47.0%)
Euna Kim
53(53.0%)

he's coldblooded. their debut is such a mess.

mfte His whole company is a mess though let's be honest

I heard they were all complaining about training taking too long? Any word on that? Regardless, this sucks for whoever it was

It took six years for GD and YB to debut. He ended up putting them in an idol band with three other people, 2 of them being kids they never met and that had barely any experience on stage. It's just the way he...works.
dorkiilove 23rd-Jan-2013 04:15 am (UTC)
why the hell would you even release that video then? thats cruel as fuck.....
yumett 23rd-Jan-2013 12:25 pm (UTC)
THIS.
YG pisses me off lately :(
b1gay4 23rd-Jan-2013 04:16 am (UTC)
sucks 2 b them
lysblack 23rd-Jan-2013 04:17 am (UTC)
damn YG you are trying really hard.

i feel like this type of 'teasing' they are doing is the kind that nugu companies normally do.

Idk why they would release practice videos of members who aren't confirmed and then tell the press that a certain member got kicked out. It's not like they're a small company who has to do whatever it takes to give their group some relevancy.

"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.”

Uh huh ok.

girl, always mte...it's so unprofessional tbh to be like oh hey here's our new group! lol jk...

but i was thinking--maybe they moved one of the girls to d-unit/kush's label? i hope that's it...idk haha.
aleexnews 23rd-Jan-2013 04:18 am (UTC)
im sorry but i hope its kim eunbi. maybe she had more talent but omg i really want yoona to debut for her crazy ass, judging by her auditioned she looked like she'd be a lot of fun and had a lot of personality. idk much about eunbi but it would've been nice if both could have stayed too, oh well

Also YG never said these girls would definitely be in the group, it was just a trainee practice video, it's not like he came out and said that they both would be in the group. He had even said that a member would be dropped from the beginning, if he hadn't that be mean but he did so. its like when BB had that member dropped, they were candidates but were never confirmed 100%

that sucks. were they dropped from just the group or from everything YG?
crazyxcami 23rd-Jan-2013 04:19 am (UTC)
its not a big deal, they did the same thing to BIGBANG. I mean, Hyunseung anyone?

But! compared to BIGBANG, wow this group...besides dancing I have nothing to be excited about. None of the released videos I was crazy with...
earthequality 23rd-Jan-2013 04:20 am (UTC)
Though I think Hyunseung was justified, because his shyness was almost crippling. And now he's a redheaded BAMF, lol.
the_erotomanic 23rd-Jan-2013 04:22 am (UTC)
it's like big bang without the reality show. :o\

or not really. whatevs. idol trainees live very precarious lives.
konichiwacobra 23rd-Jan-2013 04:23 am (UTC)
just give me a real group with some music. i don't care about all of this YG.
asnindie 23rd-Jan-2013 04:24 am (UTC)
“Female Jo Kwon”

It's probably this one since we all know how YG is obsessed with image, he's been inhibiting Bingu top since debut.
sub_divided 23rd-Jan-2013 07:26 am (UTC)
Yeah, I think so too. Kim Eunbi is also a much better singer.
_lightmycandle_ 23rd-Jan-2013 04:26 am (UTC)
i'm confused...who are these girls??

amandaplan 23rd-Jan-2013 04:33 am (UTC)
that's another girl group.

i think there are like 3 main yg girl groups floating around
su pearls w/ lee hi
some YG version of Girls Generation (the one in this article)
and the girls in that video.
nightfrost75 23rd-Jan-2013 04:27 am (UTC)
Euna Kim is a much better rapper than Jennie so I'm hoping she's the one that stayed.
stephantasm 23rd-Jan-2013 04:33 am (UTC)
euna's voice...
mingobus 23rd-Jan-2013 04:28 am (UTC)
I really really really hope it wasn't Yuna. I absolutely adored her superstar k.
stephantasm 23rd-Jan-2013 04:28 am (UTC)
where can I watch these videos???

edit: nvm~~~

This group seems like such a mess. Just as a casual observer, I can't keep track of them at all. Members, debut, whatever. Not a very good strategy for your nugus YG....but then again you've never been good at your job.
crazyxcami 23rd-Jan-2013 04:41 am (UTC)
He revealed 5 members. (rumors say there would be 7 members)
The Confirmed ones: Euna & Eunbi
The Unconfirmed ones (but he kept teasing anyways): Jennie, Lalice & Jisoo

But since the article above...So far, there is only 1 confirmed member and we don't even know which from Euna & Eunbi.
cagallisakura 23rd-Jan-2013 04:35 am (UTC)
Is this group going to take as long to debut as exo did? By the time this “YG’s Girls’ Generation” debuts, it's gonna be "GG? NUGU??????????"
royu_kiyo 23rd-Jan-2013 03:27 pm (UTC)
I thought SM debuted EXO rather quickly/organized compared to YG GG.
frantastic Netizens got no time for your shit either, YG23rd-Jan-2013 04:35 am (UTC)
1. [+200, -21] Then he shouldn't have released their names last year. They released everything about them and acted like they were confirmed last year already so imagine how hopeful those two were all this time of finally achieving their dreams. Is he joking with his trainees right now? And is this some kind of comedy show? Taking back the people he already released last year and releasing the same faces over and over again? I'm a YG fan but this is absolutely ridiculous with how they're promoting them. It enrages me. Kim Eunbi especially trained for so long and received so much spotlight for being one of the most successful contestants of Superstar K. She let go all of that to prepare to be in that girl group. Why do they think they can play around with the dreams of these kids?

2. [+185, -19] YG's been media playing bout this girl group since 2011. How have they not debuted yet.

3. [+141, -23] How long has YG been media playing about this girl group debut ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Seriously, let's see how daebak they are. I'm not even anticipating them, ugh.

"This is my prediction for YG's upcoming article releases:
YG finally confirms all members
Name of members revealed
GD, Teddy, and Tablo to support their debut
Title song confirmed
Choreography confirmed
Yang Hyun Suk interview, 'Do not call them a girl group'
Debut date being discussed with music shows
2014 Brazil World Cup, Korea advances into quarterfinals
SBS debut confirmed"

"I am so sick and tired of them. Yang Hyun Suk took it too far this time. Just reading their headlines pisses me off."

"Look at them telling the world they're media playing with the [Exclusive] in the title"

"Does Yang CEO know that if he hypes them up this much, the chance of disappointment doubles?"

"Wouldn't expect less from YG media play. I don't know why he thinks the public needs to know about the entire process of this group's debut. Our only job is to judge the final product."

I'm sick of hearing about this group already, which is funny because considering what we've heard so far is basically a whole lot of nothing. I feel like he's just trying to generate hype the wrong way and it's going to back fire, because unless this group is going to do something amazing, unique (as unique as k-pop can get, anyway) and completely blow peoples mind, it won't be worth over a years worth of teasing. We see how great that went for Exo-k. They didn't flop per-say, but they generated about 10% of the success that the company was clearly expecting, and they don't even have YG's poor management skills to worry about on top of that.
hipployta 23rd-Jan-2013 05:58 am (UTC)
It worked for EXO-M though and the purpose of M in EXO was to forge into the Chinese/International market from inception so half/75% success?
turdferguson 23rd-Jan-2013 04:37 am (UTC)
i wish details like this were kept behind the scenes, like do we really need to know who got kicked out? idts
unicornios 23rd-Jan-2013 04:42 am (UTC)
This is getting ridiculous. Tired of this undebuted mess already.
deeinanutshell 23rd-Jan-2013 04:44 am (UTC)
it's yuri lbr
if it was Kim eunbi that would be some sad, tragic mistake as she is the only one that can do anything at this point.
mizzyoung 23rd-Jan-2013 04:44 am (UTC)
As long as Lalice is safe, I'm good. But holy shit is YG dragging this whole hype. Like bruh, you are making things worse by prolonging this secrecy.
