YG Entertainment new boyband to be called “iKON”; 2 members will be eliminated on “Mix&Match”

YG Entertainment’s Yang Hyun Suk revealed more about the upcoming elimination show titled, “Mix & Match” as well as the name of the group that will debut. During a press release for the upcoming show, Yang Hyun Suk revealed the name of the group. I was thinking about the name of the group, and “iKON” came to mind. He continued on to say, “Instead of iCON, I placed the C with K to represent K-Pop. As a citizen living in Korea, I hope iKON will become a group that represents [the country]. I hope that the juniors will be just like BIGBANG. I’ve been watching Team B for several years now, and I think they have original YG colors. They’re kids who enjoy hip-hop. Team B’s leader, B.I., Bobby, and Kim Jin Hwan are already fixed members. It will be a system in which the other six compete with two being eliminated. I don’t know about the two members who don’t make it into the team. When Big Bang debuted, two members had to sign with another agency. I think it will be difficult for the two eliminated members to debut in YG. I think they will have to debut with another agency, as I don’t have plans to debut the eliminated members. He continued on to say that the group will be debuting in 2015, with a two month preparation period after Mix & Match. He revealed that he wishes for Team B to debut next year and receive the rookie award. The nine participating members in the show are: Team B′s B.I, Bobby, Kim Jin Hwan, Song Yoon Hyung, Kim Dong Hyuk, Goo Joon Hee, and three new trainees, Jung Jin Hyung, Jung Chan Woo, and Yang Hong Seok.
Mix & Match will broadcast on September 11 through Mnet and Naver. ...
