Cube Entertainment, home to 4Minute, BEAST, G.NA, and BTOB, revealed on December 8 that it will debut a multinational girl group called CLC in the first half of next year.
4Minute, Cube Entertainment’s first girl group, debuted in 2009 and has grown to become one of the top girl groups in the industry. It will be the first time in five years that Cube Entertainment has debuted a girl group. The debut is especially meaningful because CLC is the company’s first-ever multinational group.
Netizens have long been speculating about the group, even creating a list of potential members entitled “Cube Girls.” No concrete details about the concept of CLC’s debut have been officially released. However, it has been revealed that all of the members have undergone two to four years of structured training and intensive evaluation. Each of the members are competent in singing, dancing, and foreign language(s), as well as songwriting, playing instruments, and music production.
On the December 7 broadcast of SBS documentary program “When Charles Met Chulsoo,” CLC’s 19-year-old Thai member, Sorn, made an appearance. The episode featured various foreigners and followed them as they adapt to their new lives in Korea. Sorn’s daily routine, which includes vocal training, dance training, and korean lessons, was revealed. She charmed viewers with her proficiency in Korean, singing and dancing skills, and lovable appearance.
The girl group has regularly donated their talents to raise money for charity. Cube Entertainment revealed that, even before their debut, CLC had been working as models for various brands, donating all proceeds. The agency said that CLC hopes to, through their physical and moral efforts as well as through their music, to continue to participate in charity campaigns.
