YG Entertainment presents BABY MONSTER
On January 1, 2023, YG Entertainment, the agency that created K-pop icons 2NE1 and BLACKPINK, officially announced the birth of a new girl in a teaser video.
On this day, a clip called “YG NEXT MOVEMENT” was uploaded to the YouTube channel, which features a group of seven people who will soon debut, BABY MONSTER.
The released video finally showed the faces of the contestants, originally described as “a few Jennies from BLACKPINK in their teens.” YG executive producer Yang Hyun-seok, who appeared in front of the public for the first time in three and a half years, as well as senior BLACKPINK artists Jennie & Lisa, WINNER and AKMU gave their ratings to the newcomer.
The artists continued by praising their outstanding skills and appearance despite their young age, Jenny and Lisa, saying:
“I think they’re doing well overall” (Jenny)
“The seven combination looks really good.” (Lisa)
A representative of YG Entertainment said:
“BABY MONSTER is still a trainee (band) before its debut, so we planned this program in order to show the public the skills and talents (of the participants) without filtering and getting a cold preliminary assessment. We will present the results of our hard preparation and shooting over the past year.”
