BIGBANG‘s Seungri has recently came back with his second solo mini album, ‘Let’s Talk About Love,‘ in which he took a challenge in writing, composing, and producing songs. In an interview with Naver, he not only talked about his new album, but also revealed what has to be done to debut under YG Entertainment.
When the reporter started to talk about YG’s survival program, ‘WIN: Who is Next?’ where 11 trainees are divided into two groups, but only one will have a chance to debut, Seungri pointed out Kim Jinwoo as the trainee that he keeps his eyes on saying, “I want to cheer for Kim Jinwoo from Team A. I kept him in my academy until he got into YG 4 years ago. He was in YG for a while, and he bet his life on it. Once he got into YG, I stood back behind him and said, ‘You can find your way now.’ However, I am still attached to him and want to cheer for him. I think that other trainees are also lonely and stressed. I understand their feelings because BIGBANG also debuted through a survival program.”
About the differences between BIGBANG’s survival program and ‘WIN’ Seungri honestly shared, “At that time, things progressed favorably because there weren’t groups like BIGBANG in YG. However, YG is very different now. There are artists like BIGBANG, 2NE1 and PSY. Today, you cannot debut if you are average in your abilities. YG would want to debut trainees who can surpass BIGBANG and 2NE1. This is the reason why trainees from ‘WIN’ would be under pressure. The fact that they must surpass their seniors to debut is harsh.”
Do you think the new boy group can surpass BIGBANG and 2NE1?
