Through a post on YG Entertainment’s blog YG Life on October 29, Yang Hyun Suk revealed that like BIGBANG, WINNER, and iKON, the next boy group will also be created through a survival program.
The program is called “YG’s Box of Jewels
” (literal translation) and includes Bang Ye Dam. Yang Hyun Suk explains, “‘YG’s Box of Jewels’ is a phrase often used by fans as complaints that once YG artists conclude promotions once, they are locked in the box of jewels and do not come out much. It is also negative language used openly by the media.”
He continues, “‘YG’s Box of Jewels’ has the format of unveiling every single male trainee of YG who hasn’t been revealed, and monitoring the judgements and selections of the viewers through the broadcast will be applied to the selection criteria. There are a total of 29 YG male trainees
who will be revealed through the ‘YG’s Box of Jewels’ broadcast, and most of them are between the ages of 14 and 19
. As the number of participants is much higher than when BIGBANG, WINNER, and iKON were selected, the competition is higher than ever.”( Collapse )
