YG Entertainment is reportedly set to debut their new girl group in the second half of 2020.
According to an exclusive report from SPOTVnews, YG Entertainment is preparing a project for the launch of a new girl group, with the goal of debuting them in the second half of 2020. They are preparing this project at the same time as preparing for BLACKPINK‘s comeback.
Rumors have been spreading throughout the K-Pop industry that YG Entertainment is preparing to debut a new girl group this year, signaling the debut of a new “monster rookie”. As the rumors continue to grow, YG Entertainment is said to have finalized their decision on the new members for the girl group, and signed a formal contract with the members.
In an unprecedented move, YG Entertainment will be debuting both a new girl group and a new boy group in a the same year. Following YG Entertainment’s debut of TREASURE, they will be debuting their new girl group this year as well. Currently BLACKPINK is YG Entertainment’s only girl group, while the agency has multiple boy groups in BIGBANG, WINNER, iKON, and soon-to-debut TREASURE. Attention is growing among insiders in the industry to see whether YG Entertainment can grow another global girl group.
There are rumors that YG Entertainment’s new girl group will be called “Baby Monsters” after it was discovered that YG Entertainment registered the trademark for that name earlier in the year.
In response to the reports, YG Entertainment has released their statement.
It is true that we are planning to debut a new girl group. We will provide more details later with our official statement.
Right now, we are focusing on preparing BLACKPINK and WINNER’s new albums.
