YG’s two new boygroups to reportedly promote together as “TREASURE 13”

YG Entertainment’s two upcoming boy groups may also be promoting together as one large group!

Last month, YG Entertainment founder Yang Hyun Suk surprised fans by announcing that the agency would be debuting not one, but two new idol groups comprised of members from its survival show “YG Treasure Box.”

On February 7, news outlet Sports Seoul reported that, according to multiple industry insiders, YG Entertainment is currently leaning towards the idea of managing the two groups together as one large umbrella group. The agency, which is reportedly referring to the members of both groups collectively as “TREASURE 13,” is said to favor the concept of having the two groups promote “both together and separately.”

Should YG Entertainment decide to go with its current “two families under one roof” plan, the two new boy groups will not be given different group names, images, or styles, like WINNER and iKON (who debuted separately after appearing together on Mnet’s 2013 survival show “WIN: Who is Next?”). Instead, the two groups would promote together as one large group named “TREASURE 13,” in addition to promoting separately in their respective groups of six and seven.

One insider commented, “In the past, YG struggled for a long time to achieve positive synergy after launching idol groups iKON and WINNER around the same time. It seems that they have come up with this ’13-member idol group’ plan in order to minimize the errors that come with launching two male idol groups around the same time, as well as to build a fandom as quickly as possible.”

YG Entertainment previously announced that its first boy group, TREASURE, will consist of seven members: Haruto, Bang Yedam, So Junghwan, Kim Junkyu, Park Jeongwoo, Yoon Jaehyuk, and Choi Hyunsuk. The second boy group, whose name has not yet been revealed, will consist of six members: Ha Yoonbin, Mashiho, Kim Doyoung, Yoshinori, Park Jihoon, and Asahi.

the other groups name is MAGNUM apparently. YGE is consistently behind on every trend and then pretends it was an ingenious idea of their own. but people eat it up.

EDIT: I guess we already know which team will be favoured too Treasure Makers...Treasure13...Treasure. MAGNUM should just start giving tours of the YG building as a way to earn income. they're clearly an afterthought.

omg THIS. YG hasn't been on the cusp of a trend in maybe 5+ years; he isn't even the first to copy new western trends in Kpop anymore. But the public really buys into his bullshit. It's astounding. Meanwhile every BP release sounds like a 2NE1 song that should've come out in 2015.

Magnum is a terrible name for the second group. I read that the fandom name for both groups will be treasure maker, which is not good, either.

I thought YG would be one of the trends we're leaving behind in 2018.

Yg’s fans are masochistic - they may bitch and moan but they keep coming back for more and still give the company money. They stay foolish but I’m not surprised

A few more years of poor album sales and they will be

...what? So it’s like YG’s vers of NCT?

miyozari 8th-Feb-2019 12:43 am (UTC)
So, is it going to be like 2PM and 2AM = One Day or NCT? YG really got no original ideas.

Lmao.

This concept is already a failure.

Anazing how they are always so behind on trends.

YG remains the Apple of the big 3. I wonder what will happen to iKON and WINNER now. I have zero faith in YG promoting these four plus BP and the return of BB

Imagine one of your biggest stars is embroiled in a scandal involving girls being drugged, so you try to distract the public with a shiny new boy group...which you proceed to name after an alcohol brand 💀💀💀 If I didn't feel so bad for all the artists he's fucking over this would be iconic

All I know is that Magnum is also the name of an ice-cream here and I'm getting hungry and I want one now

a delicious ice cream, but I still always default to the condom.

which, YG WISHES.
cairistiona 9th-Feb-2019 03:39 pm (UTC)
i was thinking of the condom too

ice cream is one of my favourite things and i didn't even consider it....
yesungholic 11th-Feb-2019 11:21 pm (UTC)
Don't insult the condom like that. Unlike YG, the condom works and knows when it's welcome
