It seems that YG Entertainment has a whole lot in store for the near future.
On June 20, a representative from YG Entertainment stated, “PD Han Dong Chul, who has produced programs like ‘Produce 101’ and ‘Show Me The Money,’ will be working with YG Entertainment to create a brand new audition program.”
YG Entertainment founder Yang Hyun Suk, who has served as a judge on “K-Pop Star” since it’s first season back in 2011, will be directly participating in the production of the new show. Furthermore, there is a good possibility that other YG Entertainment artists may appear as judges on the program.
The representative stated about the program, “YG Entertainment will search for new talent outside the company to compete in the show alongside the YG trainees. YG Entertainment will produce not only music but all other aspects of the show.”
Previously, it was also revealed that YG Entertainment would be producing a trainee survival show similar to the programs that produced YG groups iKON and WINNER. Bang Ye Dam, a runner-up from “K-Pop Star 2” will also be participating in the upcoming program. According to the representative, the survival program will start out with 30 male YG trainees and create a new YG idol group.
Furthermore, the representative also revealed that the agency had plans to launch programs for their other artists like BLACKPINK, WINNER, and iKON.
