In an exciting revelation that’s capturing the attention of the K-pop community, leaked photos of THEBLACKLABEL’s girl group trainees have surfaced online, causing quite a stir. Among the diverse and stylish women featured in the snapshots, which showcase them in striking swag-filled poses and taking mirror selfies in a dance studio, are several faces that stand out due to their unique backgrounds and connections.
Notably, Ella Gross, an American child actress and model known as “Little Jennie,” has caught the eyes of many. Gross, who signed an exclusive contract with THEBLACKLABEL in 2018, is known for her close ties with BLACKPINK members, adding an intriguing layer of star power to the group’s dynamic.
Also seen in the leaked photos is Bailey Sok, a renowned dancer known for her work on choreographies like Taeyang’s “Shoong!” and “VIBE,” aespa’s “Savage” and “Illusion,” and SHINee’s “Don’t Call Me.” Sok’s participation hints at the high-quality performances expected from the new group.
Perhaps the most buzzworthy trainee among them is the granddaughter of Shinsegae Group’s chairwoman, Lee Myung Hee. The girl with the last name Moon has previously flaunted her connections with top K-pop acts like BLACKPINK, 2NE1’s CL, and Jeon Somi. Recently turning her Instagram private after teasing “new beginnings,” Moon’s potential debut has sparked lively discussions online, with K-pop fans predicting a blockbuster launch with comments like “heiress, a K-pop idol?” or “I can’t wait for this.”
Despite the excitement, THEBLACKLABEL has yet to make an official statement regarding the leaked photos, leaving fans eagerly speculating about the debut possibilities of this highly anticipated ensemble.
As the internet buzzes with the prospects of Shinsegae’s heiress, Ella Gross, and Bailey Sok debuting together under the guidance of Teddy, the producer behind BLACKPINK’s global success, the anticipation for THEBLACKLABEL’s new girl group reaches new heights.
