Thai politician Pita Limjaroenrat visits YG Entertainment and snaps a photo with what looks to be BABYMONSTER's 1st full album track list

AKP STAFF

Thai politician Pita Limjaroenrat, a representative of Thailand's progressive democratic party, recently visited South Korea from December 4-7. 

The politician paid a visit to various locations including corporations and universities, including one of the entertainment giants, YG Entertainment

While visiting the YGE building, Limjaroenrat snapped a photo in front of large LED displays showing BLACKPINK and BABYMONSTER, as well as a cork bulletin.

Some time after Limjaroenrat shared photos from his visit on his Instagram, the papers tacked onto the bulletin at YG soon garnered the attention of K-Pop fans. 

One plain sheet of paper reads "BABYMONSTER" at the top, before listing out these items in numerical order: 

1. BATTER UP

2. SHUT UP

3. STUCK IN THE MESS

4. LOVE ON MY HEART

5. REALLY LIKE YOU

6. FALLING IN LOVE

7. LIKE THAT

8. WE ARE BABYMONSTER

Another chart tacked onto the bulletin indicates, "TREASURE 2024," with the other words inside the chart too small to decipher. 

K-Pop fans think that the numerical items listed under the heading "BABYMONSTER" most likely is a track list for BABYMONSTER's 1st full album, expected for release some time in 2024. 

The chart tacked on under the heading "TREASURE 2024" seems to hint at TREASURE's upcoming schedules in 2024. 

Some netizens commented in response, "What is with the old-fashioned marker on paper method though kekekekeke", "Did they leak the track list on purpose? Because whoever took that photo was probably a YG employee, right?", "Oh, first I've ever heard of YG having any kind of 'plans' for their artists", "Why are those words scribbled on so badly, like someone did it at the last minute", "YG just got exposed for their old-fashioned ways", "This is a new way to do viral marketing... I guess", and more. 

  1. BABYMONSTER
  2. TREASURE

That's fine but why doesn't YG the label announce the album themselves in first quarter of year 2024? Unless they need to re-record the whole thing without Ahyeon and delay. Weird to get a politician to do a "data leak"
