I think they are good artists,” and Lee commenting, “How can they sing like this at this age? They are all so good overall.”
YG’s executive producer, Yang Hyun Suk, also appeared in the video and declared, “BABYMONSTER will never be a 7-member group. It will definitely be less than 7,” to the members waiting on stage.
He went on to say,”Just before announcing the BABYMONSTER members, we will reveal the evaluation held at the end of the month to fans in order to select the best elite members through the final evaluation,” hinting at the elimination of some members through the final evaluation.
