BIGBANG’s Taeyang Explains Why He Can Relate To “MIXNINE” Participants In New Teaser

On October 20, YG’s upcoming survival show “MIXNINE” released a new teaser video featuring BIGBANG’s Taeyang!

The clip introduces Taeyang as the third judge, following Zion.T, who had appeared in the first teaser, and JYP Entertainment producer Park Jin Young, who will be appearing as a special judge.

In the teaser, Taeyang emphasizes that this is the first time an audition program will be having a group of nine males competing against a group of nine females, with one group surviving in the end. He comments, “I think girl groups appeal to the public more, but boy groups can attract a fandom quickly. So I have no idea which group will be winning in the end.”

He then brings up the fact that BIGBANG had started out in an audition program. “I could see in these [‘MIXNINE’] contestants the same earnest desire that we had felt back in those days. I was really reminded of our past and it pulled on my heartstrings,” he shares.

Meanwhile, “MIXNINE” will be airing its first episode on October 29 at 4:50 p.m. KST.
