News: Team B Joins YG Family Japan Tour – Collaborates with Winner on First Official Stage



[스포츠동아 = 정준화] YG Entertainment made the decision to include WIN’s TEAM B (B.I, KIM JIN HWAN, BOBBY, KOO JUN HOE, KIM DONG HYUK & SONG YUN HYEONG) in YG FAMILY’s Japan tour.

The agency announced on April 11 that TEAM B will be joining YG FAMILY’s Japan concerts that are to be held on April 12 and 13at Osaka Kyocera Dome.

TEAM B has been polishing their musical talents as trainees since losing by a few points to A TEAM on YG’s survival program “WIN: WHO IS NEXT.”

The decision is deemed quite rare in the history of South Korean pop music, as TEAM B will be performing at YG FAMILY’s Japan Dome Tour that will attract 40,000 fans per concert—all of this taking place even before making an official debut.

The reason for YG’s urgently made decision is that the survival program “WIN” drew high popularity from Japanese fans who take up a big portion of YG fans.

WINNER, who won the show, performed in front of 700,000 fans when they appeared as guests for BIGBANG’s Japan Dome Tour. The upcoming event will be the first official one for TEAM B.

YG commented, “Since TEAM B does not have a debut song yet, he will collaborate with other artists and of course, will work together with their former competitor WINNER—but as close friends this time.

YG FAMILY concert to be held for the first time in 3 years will be joined by 700,000 fans. Along with BIGBANG, EPIK HIGH and LEE HI, 2NE1 will be joining in the midst of their World Tour.

As additional groups WINNER, whose debut is coming up, and TEAM B are included this time, the scale of the concert will be quite different to that of the concert 2 years ago.

The areas where YG FAMILY concert will be held are to be announced soon as well.

Article: 2NE1′s Dara has Killer Abs and YG Family has Some of the Best K-Pop Bodies

2NE1 Dara Has Killer Abs & YG Family Has Some Of The Best K-Pop Bodies

Dara has amazing abs, along with Daesung and Taeyang.

2NE1 made their comeback this weekend with their All or Nothing concerts in Seoul. One of the most circulated photos from the concert has become a shot that highlights the well-defined abdominal muscles of Dara.

Dara has developed amazing abs.

2NE1 are stand outs from other female groups in K-Pop for having a public image of fitness. Even Park Bom, who is often the source of fan banter regarding her love of the highly caloric vegetable corn, can be seen displaying a toned and fit body. In an industry that emphasizes ant-waists as the standard for women, 2NE1 serve as role models for healthier life choices for their fans.

In the leading weeks to the All or Nothing concerts, Dara shared photos of the exercise training process to build stamina for the performances.

YG Entertainment‘s artists are often photographed in the gym by their trainer, Hwangssabu. Through his social media, Hwangssabu encourages fans of YG artists to exercise and to adhere to a proper diet.

Hwangssabu’s ‘Loneliness of Self-Discipline’ with Seungri.

Beyond 2NE1, Big Bang’s Seungri, Taeyang, and Daesung are frequently captured in the gym photos.
For their Alive comeback, the physiques of Big Bang were highlighted and often shown during the group’s stage performances.

The emphasis on fitness extends beyond the established artists to the trainees and dancers. WINNER and the trainees of Team B have already demonstrated their commitment to join the ranks of physically fit artists at YG.

While SM Entertainment may have some of the most athletically inclined artists, it is obvious that YG leads the industry in terms of overall fitness. As Dara and the other members of 2NE1 continue to transform into more fit individuals, they serve as inspiration for fans who wish to lead healthier lifestyles.
