Two Eliminated Members from ‘Mix & Match’ Will Not Debut from YG
Presenting another survival program, Yang Hyun Suk revealed his thoughts on the motives behind the format of the program.
During the press conference of Mix & Match on September 2 in Conrad Seoul Hotel, Yeouido-dong, Yang Hyun Suk said was asked about the fate of the two members who will be eliminated.
He said, “I actually don’t know about the two members who don’t make it into the team. Like the time when Big Bang debuted, where one had to sign with another agency, I think it will be difficult for the two eliminated members to debut from YG. I am thinking that they might debut from another agency to choose to act instead. I don’t have a plan to debut the eliminated members again.”
Upon hearing this, some commented that this is ‘harsh,’ to which Yang Hyun Suk responded, “They are all precious children in their homes. I told you this when WIN aired, but I asked, ‘Do you think YG made Big Bang or Big Bang made YG?’ I think that Big Bang made YG. The same goes for Winner and the new group called iKON. I feel like I’m in the process of selecting the members of the national team. There are members who I personally feel closer to or feel compassionate about, but that’s a private matter. I am trying to put together a team to represent Korea. Everything is a competition, whether in school or job. I believe that these trainees will become stronger through this harsh battle.”
Mix & Match will air on September 11 through Mnet and Naver.
