According to his statement, the show will be called 'YG Jewelry Box' and will be a competition among male YG trainees who have yet to be officially introduced to the public. Overall, 29 different trainees will be competing, ranging from 14-19 years of age, and viewers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites.

Global audiences will be able to watch the program on VLIVE and YouTube, while domestic audiences will be able to find it aired on TV.

Stay tuned for more information about this exciting survival series!

I agree with you. He should focus on his current boy groups instead of creating another one.

Wait... if these are all trainees that have yet to be introduced, does that mean Yedam & the boys from Mix 9 won’t be included

Ugh I really don't want to give this man any attention after the whole MixNine fiasco, but at the same time I feel really bad for all the trainees that are chasing their dreams and don't want them to flop :/

So basically YG will already have his faves picked out, like in mix n match, and the others will have to depend on whose more popular with the audience innorder to secure a spot. So good talent thrown out the window, and 1 or 2 who will become the scapegoats of evil editing. Lmao.

Yup.....If you already have people in mind for a group then why would you launch a survival show? Just pick them normally and introduce them in a creative way. Like he could have a pre-debut TV show were viewers get to know them personally and get to see the pre debut process. They can even have specific talent based challenges and some of those activities could even be broadcast on TV and radio before they even debut.

This. I'm still outraged by WIN. I now really like iKon but he really tried to stack the deck against Team A. I was so relieved when Team A became Winner.

YG did this during MIXNINE too with the girls over the boys but also with the girls covering Genie, really being unfair but then heaping praise on the girls singing really really when bar two of them, they were flat or unstable.

why yg feels the need to have a survival show to launch a group? first winner then ikon. whats the point? yg is already a big company, the hype is big for any group that yg wil have. yg is still dealing with issues from his last survival show and has the nerve to have another one, seriously!!

Is he playing a numbers game? Almost seems like he is just debuting groups until one becomes very successful. Blackpink debut and became a hit so no more girls group, but Ikon and Winner isn't on that BTS level so hes just gonna keep releasing boy groups until one hits the jackpot lol.

There’s so many idol groups I feel bad for idols who aren’t in big agency

Actually, I was still waiting for Mixnine's debut (even though I know it was cancelled). Thanks to Mix9, I had a chance to get to know my lil' cutie Hyunsuk, Byung Gon (YG trainees) and A.C.E!! (eventually become Choice)

And now, I am very curious about whether Hyunsuk and Gon will be in show or not. I miss them so I'd be very happy if I can see them again. At the same time I'm upset they're going through a lot of challenges :(

YG has changed and lost standards the boy trainees suck like they are not what ikon and winner were so he’s done just like 2ne1 was his last great gg and he can’t promote for shit so I have no problem with this company failing. Long as iKON and everybody before them gets out before the checks stop





And all of y’all crying about mixnine lol those people sucked and would’ve been a fromis9 and not a wannaOne. Don’t blame the man

i don't really care if no one agrees with me

first above all i love and respect every past and present artist that ever came from Yg

From Big bang, 2ne1,blackpink,lee hi ,psy,seven ,gummy,epik high and so on

even down to models and actors even back up dancers

but i also think the artist under Yg needs take part of the blame of lacking in comebacks

i mean what do you expect teddy can only write so much it takes a long time to

write a song ,record ,produce and the process it takes to make a song

i know yg has a history for hiding his stars in a prison cell

but they also have to fight for what they love to do

for example bigbang has GD who likes to make and compose the music

ikon has bi who wrote almost all of his group songs with bobby's help at times and teddys

if he didn't write they probably wouldn't even have a comeback back to back

and it pains me to admit it cause i really really love blackpink but they have so little

comebacks cause they cant write and no jisoo songs don't count if you know what i mean phong phong

but i also think that yg needs to let his artist to explore and evolve

and even fail to learn and grown as an artist .let them make the music they want to release not the ones he accepts

he needs to be more like iu's or bts company let them be them

let them fail and make better music stand by them

but I'm not gonna lie i wanna just smack him so hard his cap falls off when he doesn't pay attention to my beloved yg family



btw i dont wanna start any drama just putting my own opinion out here so respect that and if i made any typos or mispelling just ignore them i had to write this twice

to long

I agree but YG has many producers other than Teddy plus they always have the option to use outside producers (like One did with his debut because YG couldn't care less). Plus Winner also produces songs (and is the only YG idol group who hasn't worked for Teddy even once) but since Winner is not "YG Style" most of the songs usually get rejected by Yang Hyun Suk himself.

R.I.P ikon and WInner. this just proofs my theory not enough money coming in.. so his logic is the more the merrier. and with that new huge building he's building he's going to need a lot of money to build and to maintain.. Trust me worse decision YG could of made!!

Didn’t know YG needed another Boy Group. All these Hip Hop groups under this side of YG needed to be absorbed by BigHit, that way BigHit replaces YG as the hip hop agency
