Kim Eun Bi, the top six contestant from Mnet’s “Superstar K2,” will join YG Entertainment’s new girl group, local media Star News reported today. It said Kim Eun Bi has become the newest member of YGE’s upcoming girl group, quoting multiple industry sources.
Despite being a high school student, the baby-faced Kim Eun Bi showcased superior singing skills on “Superstar K2.” After her elimination at the round of top six, she signed a contract with YG Entertainment alongside fellow contestant Kang Seung Yoon.
Unlike Huh Gak, Jang Jae In, or Kim Ji Soo, Kim Eun Bi rarely made any public appearances after “Superstar K2.” But it was reported that she continued to impress YGE officials through the brief trainee period, and finally, it was confirmed today that she would join the agency’s next girl group.
Since last week’s press conference, where YGE revealed plans for a new girl group and boy band, much speculation circulated regarding the new members. Industry officials are predicting the new YGE girl group to be comprised of more than seven members.
YGE has experience of making 2NE1 one of the best girl groups in the industry in just about two years. With the addition of Kim Eun Bi, expectations for YGE’s new girl group are only continuing to grow.
Here’s a video of her performance from “Superstar K2.”
