Yang Hyun Suk continued, “An existing member who was previously revealed to the public has already left YG’s new girl group,” and further commented, “YG’s new girl group will be vastly different than existing girl groups. We’ve decided that the members need to be acknowledged by the public before their debut, and we’re planning a fresh promotional strategy.”
Sm Entertainment New Girl Group 2013
2NE1 & Taeyang to return in November, YG Entertainment’s upcoming girl group to be revealed in January 2013
CEO Yang Hyun Suk stated, “YG Entertainment’s new girl group will debut into the music scene in January of next year. G-Dragon is in charge of the overall production of their debut album. But since he’s promoting his own solo album, the debut date was pushed back a bit. On top of that, Epik High will make their comeback and LEE Hi will debut this month. 2NE1 and Taeyang will be releasing their new songs in November, so the new girl group will be debuting next year in January. Another reason January was chosen is because we wanted to start YG’s new year with the new girl group.”
YG-Life saw the first appearance of the 5 members from YG Entertainments new girl group in April and May. The members consist of Kim Eun Bi, born in 1993 and a top 6 contestant of ‘Superstar K2‘, Yuna Kim from ‘Superstar K3‘, Jenny Kim, and two mystery girls who have bold talent, one of whom is half Korean and half Caucasian.
In the teaser video for their debut track "My Oh My," the five myB members appear in silhouette against bright lights and show off their dancing skills. Contradicting images of femininity from their silhouettes and power from their choreography create mysterious charms.
"As myB is our company"s first idol group, we prepared so much for their debut," explained a statement from Maroo Entertainment. "With our knowledge in Hallyu (Korean Wave), we will do our best to make sure myB becomes a widely loved group in all areas of Asia."
Meanwhile, the July 7 broadcast of “SIXTEEN” unveiled the final lineup of members. While TWICE was initially planned as a seven-member group, a total of nine were ultimately chosen: Nayeon, Jungyeon, Jihyo, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, Tzuyu, Mina, Sana, and Momo. Unfortunately, Naddi, Somi, and Minyoung were unable to make the final cut.
The group is called DIA, which is taken from "diamond", with the meaning that "Just like diamond, the most noble and loved out of all the jewels, the group also hopes they will receive love and shine for a long time".
In particular, a group selca of members Jenny, Chaeyeon and Yebin from the practice room was also revealed, attracting much attention for their innocent beauty.
