Now that BIGBANG is almost done with their monthly “MADE Series” promotions, it’s time to roll out a new set of teasers! Starting with the one that YG Entertainment just put a couple of hours ago.

The entertainment powerhouse is known to drive their artistes’ fans absolutely cray with random vague hints before any release, particularly via their “Who’s Next” teasers. If you’re lucky, once in a while, they decide to leave more obvious teasers such as the picture of dynamites prior to BIGBANG’s long-awaited comeback.

More recently, this:


The above teaser has to be one of the vaguest yet, but fans are quickly digging up past announcements to zone in on who it might be.

A couple of weeks ago, YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk straight up announced that new boy group iKON will finally debut after BIGBANG’s triumphant return to the Korean music scene. He confirmed that the date is set for 15th September.


It really has been a long time coming for iKON, a group that was supposed to have debuted in January this year. The members were chosen through Mnet’s survival program “MIX & MATCH” earlier last year. The final member, Bobby, made his name known through the 3rd season of rap competition “Show Me the Money 3″. He was also featured as a rapper in HI SUHYUN’s “I’m Different”.

Needless to say, iKON has already amassed a huge following, despite not having officially debuted.

Could it be iKON, the one YG Entertainment K-Pop idol boy group that everyone has been sitting at the edge of their seats for? But then again, the agency is known to troll fans every once in a while so who do you think the teaser image is for, if not iKON?


Feel free to discuss this in the comments box below!

Unfortunately, it has got nothing to do with iKON. Instead, YG confirmed that it’s pertaining to the upcoming launch of what looks like a new venture, “YG STAGE”.

The promo clip that was released features the agency’s actors and actresses such as Choi Ji Woo, Lee Sung Kyung, Cha Seung Won, 2NE1‘s Dara, Jung Hye Young, and more. We also got a fleeting glimpse of WINNER’s Nam Tae Hyun, which hints at perhaps future acting activities for the idol.

What do you think? Could YG STAGE be a project for YG Entertainment’s acting talents? We’ll find out on its official launch date, 21st August!
