G-Dragon, Taeyang, and Jay Park almost became a unit as told by YG Entertainment’s Yang Hyun Suk.
An old interview made by Yang Hyun Suk recently resurfaced after he shared previous plans of putting BIGBANG’s G-Dragon, Taeyang and Jay Park into one group. The interview was an excerpt from SBS Midnight TV Entertainment back in 2011.
Although the artists are now established in their respective careers, the YG Entertainment head apparently planned that all three to make their debut. The plan, however, was eventually scrapped.
“This will be the first time I will reveal this. Prior to BIGBANG’s debut, I had planned for G-Dragon, Taeyang, and Jay Park to be in one group.
However, we were all not able to get together due to their busy schedules and we made up on our own teams instead.”
Jay Park eventually went on to train with JYP Entertainment and made his debut as a member of 2PM in 2008. He left the group and the agency in 2009 and continued working as a solo artist two years later. G-Dragon and Taeyang, on the other hand, made their debut with Seungri, Daesung, and T.O.P for BIGBANG in 2006.
Yang Hyun Suk almost made a perfect trio.
