Yang Hyun Suk answers questions on Treasure 13's 2nd subunit name, fanclub name, pre-debut reality show, + more

Earlier, YG Entertainment's head producer Yang Hyun Suk shocked fans worldwide by revealing plans to debut a large-scale, 13-member group born from 'YG Treasure Box' - Treasure 13

As a follow-up to the announcement, here are more of Yang Hyun Suk's answers to fans' demands including the name of Treasure 13's second group or "subunit", as well as Treasure 13's fanclub name, their pre-debut reality show, and more.

What is the name of the second, 6-member group?


"The name of the latter, 6-member group is Magnum. The Black Pink members mentioned the name on broadcast before, and it was also revealed that YG Entertainment registered the trademark for this name, so many of you already suspected this group name. 

The name Magnum was chosen because they common say, 'Drunk on music' just like 'Drunk on alcohol' or 'Drunk on the mood', and among the best quality alcohols known, they call a double-sized, 1.5 L bottle of wine, Magnum. 

I chose this name hoping that the world will become 'Drunk' on their music, and this name is also used to describe select gun models, so I felt that the name fit a boy group better than a girl group; it is a name I have been cherishing after we finished filing its trademark."

What are the debut plans for Treasure 13?

"Treasure 13's first debut is expected between May-July of this year, and I plan to nurture Treasure 13's growth through continuous and offensive music releases. 

After Treasure 13's successful debut, Treasure and Magnum will go on to promote as two separate groups."

Are there any pre-debut plans?

"On 'YG Treasure Box', announcer Jang Sung Gyu often used the comment, 'Open The Treasure Box'. This phrase will soon be used as the title of a new reality program, depicting Treasure 13's debut process as well as their daily lives. We are currently preparing for this reality program. It will air through 'V Live', YouTube, etc much like 'YG Treasure Box', in order to approach global fans simultaneously."


Is there a fanclub name for Treasure 13?

"The three teams will have one fanclub name overall. The fanclub name is also a term which was used very often during the 'YG Treasure Box' broadcast - 'Treasure Maker'. I feel that it is the most appropriate fanclub name, as Treasure 13's growth and success will be made alongside the fans."


What is the distinguishing point of Treasure 13 from their sunbae YG groups?

"Generation-wise, we can determine that Big Bang are YG's 1st generation boy group, WINNER and iKON are 2nd generation, and Treasure 13 are 3rd generation. 

A similarity to their sunbae groups will be that the members will participate in composing and writing lyrics for all of their songs. 

In Treasure 13's case, however, we do not plan to enforce the members' participation in composing and writing their own songs; instead, we plan to utilize YGE's production capabilities to their fullest. While an artist who composes and writes his/her own songs can become a great strength, it's true that when the members are too busy and they do not have time or become stuck during the creative process, it can create a much bigger gap in their promotional breaks.

Just as our main producer Teddy is in charge of all of Black Pink's music with some participation from our The Black Label artists, Treasure 13's music will be created by YG producers, The Black Label producers, and our most recently created YGX producers, for a speedy creative process involving over 30 producers. 

I ask for fans' abundant attention and encouragements toward Treasure 13's successful debut.

Due to time constraints, I will visit again tomorrow with news of Black Pink's new music release."

He should've done this with Winner & Ikon... Well, I think there was a plan for a collab? He released a collaboration teaser but nothing was released after that.

i don't know how to feel about this, one of the reason that i like yg groups is they made their own music. and i know that it caused long time comeback waiting, but i don't mind as long as they'll return with good music. so i don't know if i can see this group the same as their sunbaes. i don't know if being more similar to other group can be a new thing worth to try of. it feels like your longtime bestfriend is changing by the time, but you still prefer the old colour of him.

i think even since yg make bigbang, he try to make good musics but with marketable package twist (idol group), but this time i don't think if it really necessary.

btw maybe i'll still like yg so let's look what happen next.

What?

Has more than 30 producers and has not been able to release an album for blackpink?

So, What have they been doing all this time?, How is it that he have more than 30 producers and only release one song per year?

Wow, just formed and is debuting between may-july this year?

And blinks have been asking a comeback for so long.

I know it may trigger some blinks. And they have every right to.

But it will be nice if they channel the disappointment and support their hoobaenim.


I mean if both Blackpink and(Treasure&Magnum),

are popular. In future, Blackpink won't need to overwork every time to bring revenues.


And also if you Stan both groups, there will be less time for you to worry for a comeback. You know.


Btw,I m a Melody(BTOB fandom) and just a low key blackpink supporter, so don't know if my opinion will be valid or Not.

Have a nice day

Treasure, Magnum, Treasure Maker the names are not very impressive I must admit,

And also not enforcing music participation, 30 producers... sounds like that outdated song camp system that SM uses, but hopefully this means at least 2 music releases per year...

And no news on BLACKPINK solos or group album, instead we get a fucking tour with 9 songs, some random collab with a Snake guy, fucking YG constantly pushing for a US debut....

I'm literally an inch away from jumping off the YG boat, the BLACKPINK boat, all of this is stressing me out. I'm not gonna waste my time having to worry about how long their next hiatus is going to be everytime they have a comeback. There is a whole a lot of other gg out there and if YG don't feel like respecting me and other fans then he don't deserve any more of my money and time.

A bit salty are we? First, all members are very handsome, and if you personally find them attractive is subjective opinion. Second, one would think talent, good music, vocals/rap/dance, would be primary atribute, and not just visuals.. your priorities say enough about your take on kpop music.
