[TV Zoom-In] Team B loses on ‘WIN’, it doesn’t mean good-bye forever, right?




[TV리포트=김가영 기자] The grand battles of 10 week came to an end. There were no unexpected twists. Team A, who seized victory twice in the first two battles, once again beat Team B, marking the finale of the long journey. Immediately after the wrap-up of the survival program, Team A kick-starts their preparation to make a debut as WINNER. And then there remains Team B.



The final episode of ‘WHO IS NEXT: WIN’ aired on Oct 25 through Mnet captured the very last survival battle that determined the fate of Teams A and B. The two Teams unleashed all their potential and talents they polished in the last 10 weeks. They were up against each other in the category of remaking a song, dance and self-composed song.



The first round of battle was about showcasing remade song. The mission given to the Teams was remaking YG’s experienced artist Teddy’s song. Team A said, “This is the last song so we are going to take into account what the public would like.” In the process of remaking a song, Team A garnered much popularity from the audience by focusing more on the melody and the stage contents rather than the lyrics.



Team B, on the other hand, designed their concept with the aim to “embrace the stories” of each one of them. Their plan revolved around their personal stories, including the stage structure. Team A focused on the trees, while Team B paid attention to the entire forest. YG’s professional artists who were present at the battle to cheer them on showed great interest in Team B’s unique theme.



The following round of battle of dance was an opportunity to maximize Team B’s charms. Team A’s performance was about tranquility, while Team B’s was powerful and mighty. The members of Team B were like fishes in the sea, unleashing their full talents with no inhibitions. Despite their young age, the members left the female audience awe-struck with their masculine spell. 2NE1’s MINZY commented, “They stole my heart. They are like the Black Hole.”



The final round of the battle was self-composed song session. Team B had a traumatic experience with self-composing. This was the only section that Team B scored lower than Team A. Moreover, the team showed a hint of fragmentation in their teamwork while preparing for self-composed song battle, which was rare for the closely tied members.



Team B’s Kim Jin Hwan said, “We lost the self-composed song section so this time we have win this one”, but added, “I was reminded of the nightmare of the previous battle.” While deciding the theme of the battle, Bobby suggested the song should hold their “personal stories.”



Team B created a genuine performance, which drew on the experiences of their training period including their personal stories. The best part was B.I. He sang like he was confessing a story of his mother, showcasing an honest and touching story through the song.



2NE1’s CL commented, “I was deeply touched. It reminded me of us when we were training.” Yang Hyun Suk, the founder of YG Entertainment, praised the team by saying, “Team B’s song made my tears well up. It’s because they hold their stories. This was perfectly suited for the final battle. I think I’ll enjoy listening to this from now on.”



In the 2-hour performance, Team B showcased honesty, masculine charm, passion and teamwork. The audience, YG’s professional artists, their competitor Team A and even Yang Hyun Suk was touched by their work and were deeply impressed.



Team A’s leader Kang Seung Yoon commented, “Team B did an excellent work,” but Team A was called as the final winner. The members were lost in mingled feelings of joy and disappointment.



Kang Seung Yoon said, “I personally think that Team B did much better.” Team B’s leader B.I. accepted the result and commented, “There are no regrets, which makes me happy, and I am deeply grateful. Right this moment everyone is WINNER.”



Team B marked the finale with their tears. Those tears seemed to connote many things. The final winning team, Team A, won the chance to make a debut under the group name WINNER. Then what is left for Team B?



Team A drew much attention from the beginning with the already well-known Kang Seung Yoon and Lee Seung Hoon in the group. In comparison, Team B was less known because the members consisted of new faces. However, each episode was a foothold for Team B to leave stronger impression, and they began securing a broad range of fans.



Although making a debut as WINNER is no longer happening for them, Team B did more than enough to reveal their talents and potential. Artists from YG and a large number of fans tried to convince Yang Hyun Suk to allow both teams to make a debut, but he stayed firm. However, his eyes showed a hint of doubt about his decision.



Now with the final battle over, Team B and his fans are keenly awaiting for Yang’s decision.



Basically YG is trying to say that even tho B was "more deserving", A "The lacking team" won just because LSH&KSY
Way to shoot your new Artist in the foot YG



Screw you YG!(With love from Winner)

i think YG expected B to win and that's why he kept saying he'd disband the losing team... they probably knew a bit before the show that A won today and that's why he put out that statement right before A won saying to wait for the other one too!

i'm happy for A but if YG is still so obviously biased towards B, they're probably going to release their little thing soon and be put on the backburner like 2NE1 and never really get anywhere.

i agree about the bias. he always laid the praise on super thick, and i know that he's especially infatuated with hanbin, his 'future gd'

this article is worded weirdly, too. like team a weren't continually characterized as the underdogs throughout the entire competition
uglypricetag 27th-Oct-2013 04:13 am (UTC)
fyi this reporter doesn't work for YG. much of the piece are her own opinions about team a vs b. the fact that YG Life reposted it is nagl

i'm sorry but i need to vent - i'm sad about team b losing since i like a couple of the boys, but this ridiculous amount of bias towards them makes it seem like team a doesn't belong in the YG family. if they're gonna get the seungri treatment, then fuck YG. he should've just debuted team b and not bothered with this competition if team a aren't swagalicious enough for him.

and PUH. LEEEZE. team a did the personal stories concept first with OFY and yet they didn't get half the amount of praise that b got. this reporter tries to make team a's work look shallow when they've always been the more original and moving team when it comes to performance.

Yeah if it's what the reporter feels about both groups then be my guest but idg why YG had to post this. I'd be posting every article praising my new boy group.

I feel like Team A's gonna be the outcast child of the company (if they aren't already).

Basically YG is trying to say that even tho B was "more deserving", A "The lacking team" won just because LSH&KSY

Was that YG saying that, or was it it the author of this article saying that...

I honestly was convinced that YG was going to screw with us and debut all 11, especially when they started to showcase them as 11 in the last few episodes.
With how much team B has been exposed to the public and has garnered fans, it would be totally ridiculous to make any changes. The least I hope for is that they just work on their vocal line and debut later.

This made made me lol so much but it's so true
in_noctem 27th-Oct-2013 04:16 am (UTC)
Idek why they would post this on yg-life. Must be nice to visit your company website only to read an article which basically says your rival team should have won.

I feel for my boys tbh I hope they don't see it

perplexed by this marketing strategy

I love it! I expect no less from YG!
awsteven 27th-Oct-2013 04:23 am (UTC)
lol this article is nagl for yge. i really like team a and hopefully they won't be shafted like the rest of yg artists who aren't gd.
jjang_intae 27th-Oct-2013 04:24 am (UTC)
Is YG trying to make Team A feel like crap or? This article is so bloody biased towards Team B and to post it on your website? I feel bad for Team A because they may have won but their labelmates and own CEO don't even seem to feel happy for them. YHS has always been a douche in my eyes but ugh this whole Win thing took his idiocy to a whole new level. Even though A won, I'm scared for their future because YG seems determined to make them feel like outcasts
asteri5k 27th-Oct-2013 04:27 am (UTC)
Wtf is this even??

Who the hell would root for Team A if YG is agreeing their win is a fluke?
beanii 27th-Oct-2013 04:29 am (UTC)
The implications that are being pulled from this article I feel are a bit contrived.
YG-life pulls articles from other sources often as long as it pertains to something that's happening within the company. There are other articles on their that praise both teams hardwork and how they worked well under pressure. This article was focused on the question of whats going to happen to team B which is probably why there was a lot of praise towards them, to bring up hope.

No, they only pull stories that they approve.

They don't put in stories like
"Sandara watching dramas and adopting kittens"
"CL's instagram update with etc etc"
"Park Bom's new face"
"GDragon seen in a party of some kind"
"Seungri with a girl"
"Daesung in Japan"

Also statements like this are nagl:

"Team A focused on the trees, while Team B paid attention to the entire forest. YG’s professional artists who were present at the battle to cheer them on showed great interest in Team B’s unique theme."

"Team A drew much attention from the beginning with the already well-known Kang Seung Yoon and Lee Seung Hoon in the group. In comparison, Team B was less known because the members consisted of new faces. "

Remove these two lines maybe we'll talk about the article being professional.

Oop YG you messed up.

Not that I really cared about this entire WINNER thing but, maybe Team B can move to a different management company.
jjang_intae Re: big goof27th-Oct-2013 04:42 am (UTC)
maybe Team B can move to a different management company.

YG wouldn't let them. They're his prized possessions
cedric_mcfly 27th-Oct-2013 04:35 am (UTC)
I know the person who wrote this doesn't work for YG but YG Life using it is crap.

Now i'm all for Team B getting some love, and esp since Team A won and we'll be seeing them soon enough Team B can use all the support they can get if they are not to disappear, but of course YG goes about this the wrong way.

"Yang Hyun Suk, the founder of YG Entertainment, praised the team by saying, “Team B’s song made my tears well up."

Lbr here as if you can still feel human emotions ;P

YG is a dickhead, I fear for my boys, especially Jinwoo, I can already see YG coming for his head. Despite A winning, the company and its artists really don't seem very accommodating, which I am really hating atm. The only people that seem to be welcoming are the other newbies i.e. Hayi, Yedam and Akdong :\

Also omg I really need a 'winner' tag in my life
