YG offers suggestions on what we may or may not hear in 2013

YG Entertainment has revealed some more hints about their upcoming plans for 2013!

Yang Hyun Suk himself stated, “During the first half of this new year we will be focusing on the album production and promotions for Lee Hi, 2NE1, and YG’s new girl group… If all goes as planned, then I want to reveal our new boy group as well in the last half of the year. However, this date is just a wish of mine as a producer and I hope the fans will take this as more of a hint rather than a promise.”

He also revealed some details on the upcoming boy group, stating, “The members of this new boy group are between the ages of 16~18, and have all been training for more than two years and are extremely good… For the past two years they have been training with Kang Seung Yoon.”

As ‘Superstar K2‘s Kang Seung Yoon was previously said to be getting ready for a solo debut, Yang Hyun Suk clarified, ”Although Kang Seung Yoon will be releasing his solo debut album during the first quarter of next year, we will not nail him as only a solo artist,” revealing that he may be included in the boy group as well.

He also added, “Ever since he entered YG, he has improved tremendously in dancing… He will release his first solo album before or after February, and will show just how much he has changed while under YG… His new image will be different from his ‘Superstar K’ image.“

i googled for the hell of it and i have never seen this pic lol

in summary, YG still needs to consult his tea leaves but thus far I have divined...
1Q13: Kang Seung Yoon
1H13: Lee Hi, 2NE1, new girl group (singular?!)
2H13: new boy group (?!)
2013: SuPearls (?!), Daesung (?!), Taeyang (?!), GD (?!)

Every time I see his butt I want to slap it - or just pat it twice, and say aww, good boy! What a puppy. :D

No way they're going to debut so many people in one year. I think the girl group is gonna get pushed back, since Kang Seung Yoon has been at YG for two years and still has a fandom waiting for him with their wallets ready. Besides, boy groups bring in a lot more money and he's been trying to figure out ways to rely on Big Bang less.

Feels like 2NE1 has been forgotten in YG's eyes. Honestly, I think he's lost interest because 2NE1 doesn't bring all that much cash in terms of album sales, but if you release three singles one by one every other month people are gonna lose interest. Girl group album sales are already lower than boy groups to begin with, and it was his lame strategy that made them the digital sales queen but not so much with physical albums.

I can't decide if I want solo albums from all the members first or a regular studio album from Big Bang. They debuted like what, seven years ago? and they still only have two albums!
To be honest, I think I want TOP's solo album and an album from just the vocals. I LOVE LOVE LOVE GD, but Big Bang songs have recently been GD and the Boys songs (I mean, the songs are good, so I can't complain, but so much talent being wasted there).
Maybe they should just release a Big Bang album with songs sung by different combination of the members.

Are you sure about that?

2ne1 has fewer physical albums/minis, and part of it could just be timing, but their korean sales are comparable to bigbang's on a per album basis, unless those numbers are extremely out of date.

EDIT: best/approximate comparisons
2010 album To Anyone, 200k+ vs. 2008 (...) album Remember, 210k+
2009 mini 2ne1, 200k+ vs. 2008 Stand Up, 190k+
2011 mini 2nd mini album 140k+ vs. 2011 Tonight, 140k+ (240k+ including repackage, but 2ne1 didn't get one....)

Oh yeah i saw on some forums saying how YG will release practice vids and let the public determine who will be cut for the final line up. Cruel and just lazy i say.
xalexandriam 20th-Dec-2012 05:58 am (UTC)
i am here for a solo album from dae, but needs more 2NE1 and a full length album from seungri tbh

lilmissniza THIS IS BRAND NEW INFORMATION!20th-Dec-2012 06:05 am (UTC)
Right... So this is just YG procrastinating aloud to the media again. What else is new?
sandritablue 20th-Dec-2012 06:07 am (UTC)
SuPearls ????? Apparently they've been forgotten after Lee Hi solo debut...he said september so can't believe what he says now. >.>
patentpending 20th-Dec-2012 01:29 pm (UTC)
I find it odd that he didn't mention them at all. I feel so bad for those girls.
unicornios 20th-Dec-2012 06:13 am (UTC)
All I got from this post is that you can barely see Taeyang in the picture lmfao
shanny_w 21st-Dec-2012 12:29 am (UTC)
i was looking for 5 minutes
tterriffic 20th-Dec-2012 06:18 am (UTC)
oh puh leaze, any news in which YG reveals plans&dates in invalid by definition. The unreliability of such statements is the reason I've stopped anticipating any YG releases atm.
sergel02 20th-Dec-2012 06:32 am (UTC)
So who's the guys sitting down on the left in the black who has his left butt cheek towards TOP?
markthatcoin 20th-Dec-2012 06:39 am (UTC)
I am guessing those are all YG dancers and this was after a show. Strange that most of them are wearing Fila gear though. I yanked it from akp forums and there was no backstory...

Very specific question though... Lol

However, this date is just a wish of mine as a producer and I hope the fans will take this as more of a hint rather than a promise.”

So it seems the (by the day) increasing hatred fans have for his horrendous planning did not go unnoticed. Now how about fixing it and just do what you say on the day you promised it.

2NE1 keeps on getting pushed back it is driving me nuts. If he keeps up this planning of him when he tries to make them happen in the US, they will be forgotten before they even started. There was a time when Teddy said in June/July that they already finished seven songs, sigh. If I only get a fricking mini-album I will be so sad/mad/disappointed. Everytime they delay they use reasons that they "want to make the album better." I have this feeling that when the album does come out I will be expecting so much that it will probably not even satisfy me. I am just so sick of their old songs at this point because they seriously have such a small discography that there is not much to rotate between.

That being said, I think the new girl group will be pushed back (sadly, I am actually looking forward to them) and that 2NE1 will probably - if it doesn't get delayed more - come back somewhere in May/June. Lee Hi will be first, since he wants to milk her 1234 success.

Ah, to hell with YG - I will just focuse on my refound love for SNSD <3

Btw, OP, love your sarcasm ~

lol what can I say, I may be a jaded YG stan but I can't tear myself away from the YG family ^^

Girls & Peace is truly amazing, I feel no guilt for loving that album as much as I do. It has been years since I enjoyed the girls and I am actually anticipating tomorrow's pre release single!
