With his third installment of letters to fans, YG Entertainment's head Yang Hyun Suk has now touched on the topic of Kang Seung Yoon's debut, which was originally supposed to take place earlier this year.
As you know there were talks of the former 'Superstar K2' contestant making his debut as part of the agency's new boy group, but it was later announced that he'd mark his official debut as a soloist.
According to the letter, we can expect to see Kang Seung Yoon make his debut with a mini album after the pre-release "Wild And Young" on July 15th!
However, this does pose a bit of confusion as 2NE1 is scheduled to release a song in July as well, followed by a mini album in October, but one or two of the new girl group members are also supposed to make their debut in that month as well. This already has fans, who are quite used to the ways of YGE, raising their eyebrows as it's not often heard of when things are on schedule with this agency and the fact that they seem to have perhaps overbooked themselves with multiple releases within a month.
Will we really be seeing Kang Seung Yoon's debut in July as well as 2NE1's single, followed by a new single for 2NE1 each month until October, when they will release a mini album and also see new girl group members make their debut? Only time will tell! But for now, check out Yang Hyun Suk's letter in detail below!
When will KANG SEUNG YOON, the ex-Superstar K contestant, be debuting?
Unlike LEE HI, who made a debut immediately after season 1 of the talent show program was finished, KANG SEUNG YOON, who is an ex-contestant of Superstar K, has been preparing hard to become a professional musician for 3 years at YG Entertainment. On the show he aroused much popularity with his song "Instinctively", which helped him be a cast on a big sitcom. Thanks to all this, many were curious of when his actual debut as a singer would be.
But good news first. KANG SEUNG YOON's first solo album is a mini album with 6 songs, which is nearing its completion. On July 15, his first song 'WILD AND YOUNG' will be unveiled for the first time.
The much-anticipated first song is a fruit reaped by YG's main producer, Teddy, which strays away from his past production. This song is a strong rock with KANG SEUNG YOON's husky and powerful voice. His refreshing voice makes the song a perfect one for the blazing summer.
KANG SEUNG YOON has spent yesterday and today working on filming the music video of 'WILD AND YOUNG' with director HAN SA MIN, who also directed BIGBANG's 'BLUE' and 2NE1's 'LONELY'.
Unfortunately KANG SEUNG YOON's first song 'WILD AND YOUNG' will not be aired on television. Currently we are still deciding on the date of his official album release, and I believe that the date will be confirmed depending on how the other pending issue goes. I will further explain this other matter tomorrow!
When will YG's new boy group be debuting?
To be continued… see you all tomorrow!
