On September 22, YG Entertainment and YGX, its subsidiary company, announced their new dance academy, X Academy, which will be opening in October near Hongik University in Seoul. Trainers will include vocal trainers and YG-affiliated dancers like the dance teams HITECH and CRAZY. Classes will be available for all skill levels. Students of X Academy will have exclusive audition opportunities to become a member of a YG-affiliated dance team, or indeed a trainee under YG, YGX or The Black Label.

Three teaser dance clips have since been released, featuring Lee Seunghoon of Winner, DK of Ikon, and Lisa of Blackpink.

The exclusive audition opportunities bit makes me suspect it's intended to fleece young hopefuls, getting them to pay for the dangled chance of being a part of YG

Why is YGE so shady in everything they do?
