A representative from YG Entertainment confirms it to Korean media outlet Star News. “The new girl group from YG aims to debut this summer. All the members are very talented and they have all trained for a minimum of three years,” reveals the YG representative.

Their debut plans might change, but currently it is most likely that they would debut this summer. CEO Yang also aims that the girl group would win the best female artist award along with iKON as the best male artist award at the end of year award ceremonies.”
