YG Entertainment has announced that its new girl group will be unveiled on January 15th of 2013.
On December 20th, CEO Yang Hyun Suk revealed, “Everything about the new girl group that we’ve prepared for so long will be revealed on January 15th.”
He also shared that the members of the girl group are not yet confirmed, stating, “We’ve recorded each member’s practice sessions over a long period of time, and though it’s not a survival competition, we’ll be eliminating 1-2 revealed members.”
Yang Hyun Suk added, “An existing member who was previously revealed to the public has already left YG’s new girl group,” increasing curiosity about the group’s final members.
YG will be posting videos of the members on its official homepage mid-January, and afterwards, the final members and debut song will be confirmed. The CEO also revealed, “YG’s new girl group will be vastly different than existing girl groups. We’ve decided that the members need to be acknowledged by the public before their debut, and we’re planning a fresh promotional strategy.”
YG Entertainment previously introduced Kim Eun Bi, one of the top six contestants on ‘Superstar K2‘, Yuna Kim from the US auditions of ‘Superstar K‘, Jenny Kim, the second mysterious girl, and a 16-year-old girl of mixed heritage as part of the members of the group.
