With 2NE1 and Blackpink, YG Entertainment has written an undefeated story in the K-pop girl group history. And now, they are secretly gearing up to showcase their new girl group in the latter half of this year.
According to industry insiders, YG is now carefully selecting the members to join its new girl group to be introduced later this year (probably in the name of “Baby Monster”). The girls are all in the mid-teens, making them the members of YG’s youngest team.
This new band is known to have undergone YG’s high-intensity training since the age of 10 for about 4 to 5 years. Since 2NE1 and Blackpink’s average age at the time of their debut were 20 and 19, this new group’s average age has decreased significantly.
As it’s the new group that follows the legends of 2NE1 and Blackpink, this new group will also be composed of girls with impeccable charms and skills.
From last year, K-pop fans paid much attention to this new group that YG will launch after five years. Though the number of members and team name still in the veil, expectations are high on what new charm YG’s first teen girl band will show.
