On January 6th, YG Entertainment released a statement regarding the future of the rookie group that was formed from the company’s survival show, ‘YG Treasure Box’. Three things are to note about their statement:
- The system that the group would debut as separate 7 member ‘Treasure’ and 6 member ‘Magnum’ will no longer go ahead. The two groups were supposed to combine and form the group TREASURE13. Instead, the members will be combined and simply debut as the group called ‘TREASURE’.
- Group members are now allowed to participate in the writing lyrics for their tracks. Originally, the members were not going to be allowed, but the company found highly regarded work from the members’ efforts.
- Member Ha Yoonbin decided to leave the lineup, due to his preference wanting to go solo. His exclusive contract with YG Entertainment was terminated on December 31st, 2019. So, TREASURE will debut with the remaining 12 members.
YG Entertainment also stated the group will focus not only on group promotions but also unit and solo activities too. New content that can showcase the group’s talents is expected to be released this month in January.
After that, the company released a teaser photo of the full lineup of TREASURE. Check it out down below!
