Rania’s Jooyi rejected a casting offer from YG Entertainment

In her recent interview with Donga News, Rania’s Jooyi revealed that not only had she rejected a casting offer from YG Entertainment, but that she was also a potential member of 2NE1 as well.

Jooyi is a media music major at the Dongah Institute of Media and Art and was previously praised by Teddy Riley for having a “modern and powerful vocal talent.”

Jooyi revealed, “I auditioned for YG Entertainment during my third year of junior high and passed up to the third round. Big Bang’s Daesung senior was overseeing the audition cycle, and I had even seen Minzy senior rehearsing in the training room. After I passed the third round, YG’s casting manager said to me, ‘We are making a female Big Bang, would you like to become our trainee?’”

She continued, “I think the group that I was offered to join at the time is the current 2NE1.
I don’t regret the fact that I rejected the offer
. I will work as hard as our 2NE1 seniors so that Rania can become a great girl group as well.”

I find it weird that she first auditioned and then rejected YG, I guess she didn't want to debut simply as "female Big Bang" however 2NE1 managed to change their image from the female Big Bang to 2NE1, nevertheless kudos to her for rejecting YG and instead debuting with Rania.

I guess this is why Daesung still doesn't have a solo. He's too busy being a boss - overlooking auditions and shit for YG.

I love his part in the parody.

LOL right

Can't help but feel that was probably a big mistake on her part. As catchy as Dr Feel Good may be, I don't see Rania elevating to 2NE1 status.
kazu_kumaguro 24th-Apr-2011 05:23 pm (UTC)
too bad for her
aleexnews 24th-Apr-2011 05:25 pm (UTC)
what a loss on her part. but i don't see her fitting into 2NE1 tbh so it's a good choice.

her voice is pretty amazing!! i think she would have fit in amazingly in yg, but not so much 21. idk, maybe in another girl group.
sglitzys 24th-Apr-2011 05:34 pm (UTC)
That's too bad, she would have gotten more exposure with a smaller group like 2NE1.
ayeveee 24th-Apr-2011 07:44 pm (UTC)
yeah, i was like, what is this nugu thinkin'
fuckingtaemin 24th-Apr-2011 05:42 pm (UTC)
She'd fit right in with 2ne1 tbh.
