    YG is reportedly considering its next girl group!

    On September 19, a media outlet reported that YG was currently planning to launch a survival program to pick the members of the company’s next girl group, with plans to broadcast the show at the end of the year.

    According to the reports, producing director (PD) Go Ik Jo, who recently transferred to YG Entertainment, will be in charge of the new survival program. He participated in Mnet’s “Show Me The Money” and “High School Rapper.”

    Trainees from YG Entertainment, as well as those from Teddy’s subsidiary label, The Black Label, will reportedly appear on the show.

    Later, YG Entertainment gave an official statement in response to these reports, stating, “[The program] is merely one of many we are currently drawing out. We do not have much information to announce just yet.”

    Previously, YG Entertainment had stated they would announce a girl group to follow BLACKPINK within the year [2018].

    After seeing the utterly failure of Mixnine, I don't have any faith on YG pulling this show off successfully. The man as many mentioned before should focus on BP.

    Maybe we can send Dara, CL, Bom and Minzy.

    When they win, YG can call them 2NE2

    I hope BP get a lot more comebacks an activities, but I as well think YG can debut more groips. He should just get more staff and some oen that can magane a schedule the right way.

    And since the participants are their own trainnies, basically dotn have to pay anything to toehr companies, so gain gain for them them and Teddy. Similar tomWIN.

    YG actually has a decent number of employees they must don't utilise them very well apparently... and I'm assuming that Teddy trains his trainees in production or at least one or two of them so hopefully they will be a self producing group, that won't need too much help, kinda like iKON and Winner

    It's with trainees from his own company if they want a chance at debuting then they will have to sign up for it.

    Teddy had like a 2 years worldwide audition, so I think YG trainnies probably have more years in the "sistem" , but Teddy girls could be a raw talent, it will be interesting to see.

    And yeah, but not long a go YG also was recruting staff, so I think they needed more.

    Difficult, Only one trannie that have left YG have being sucessful so far.... so the ratio is like 1-9, so they would probably prefere to stay and participate and see what happens, may be thye can gain popularity even if they dont debut with YG and go to other company after the show.

    People using MIXNINE as a reason to doubt the end result of this show have probably forgotten that Big Bang, Winner and iKon all came from survival shows. I didn't follow MIXNINE and I was disappointed to hear what happened with it, but I think since these will be YG/teddy's trainees, it will be more like all the other shows YG did.

    I'm interested to see how this is going to play out. I've always been a YG stan so I'll be watching it closely. I'm just concerned for Blackpink.
