Baby Monster (pictured), a new girl group introduced by YG Entertainment 7 years after BLACKPINK, will debut this fall after confirming the members.
YG announced on the 12th that Baby Monster has been confirmed as 7 members: Ahyeon, Luca, Chiquita, Haram, Parita, Laura, and Asa. Most of them are in their teens and consist of multinational members, including three Koreans, two Thais, and two Japanese.
Baby Monster is YG’s general producer Yang Hyun-suk’s first group after returning to his post after 3 years. Originally, it was planned to consist of members selected through an open evaluation among 7 prospective members, but all 7 members joined as debut members without being eliminated.
Executive Producer Yang Hyun-seok, who personally revealed the debut members through a video posted on the official blog on the same day, revealed the background of the 7-member debut, saying, “Asawa and Laura, who were finally chosen to join, were chosen by YG fans.”
Even before Baby Monster’s official debut, the number of subscribers to its official YouTube channel exceeded 2 million in 129 days, the shortest record for a K-pop girl group, and the cumulative number of views of the teaser content exceeded 400 million views. US Billboard selected them as ‘K-Pop Artists to Watch’. Baby Monster plans to showcase group and unit activities while continuing preparations with the goal of debuting this fall.
