Eight years after Big Bang, YG Entertainment’s new boy group WINNER (Kang Seungyoon, Lee Seunghoon, Song Minho, Nam Taehyun, Kim Jinwoo) has finally decided their official debut.
Although WINNER still has not had their official debut song, Mnet’s ‘WHO IS NEXT: WIN’ collected buzz everywhere at the end of October last year.
Although they are an idol group that has not officially debuted, they have already received 5 advertisement deals, and in Osaka, Japan, last November, their first fan meeting brought a whopping 8,000 fans.
WINNER’s announcement of their debut song has brought much attention to both the music industry and to fans.
YG’s head, Yang Hyun Suk, accepted an interview with Star News on the afternoon of the 7th.
Yang Hyun Suk: “From December until the WINNER TV that is being brought to you now, they have showcased the members’ daily characters as well as their character when they work.” He also added, “When WINNER TV ends, WINNER’s debut album is scheduled to be released at the end of Feburary.”
Yang Hyun Suk: “Recently, WINNER has been working hard with YG’s producers to produce their debut album. The probability of the WINNER members’ self-composed songs to be on there is very high.”
Yang Hyun Suk: “WINNER’s first album will also be a mini-album.” “After WINNER’s first album is released, they will begin their many activities in the music industry.”
