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.
