All the members of Korea’s top boy band Big Bang (G-Dragon, Taeyang, Top, Dae Sung, Seungri) and girl band 2NE1 (CL, Dara, Bom, Minzy) are appearing in M-Net’s “WHO IS NEXT:WIN”·(“WIN”) show, a survival program that portrays the process of the birth of YG Entertainment (“YG”)’s new idol band.
Beginning from the first episode aired in the afternoon on August 23, “WIN” has been aired at 10 pm every Friday. At the end of episode 4 which will be aired on the 13, the preview of episode 5 is included and all the members of Big Bang and 2NE1 appear in it.
According to TV insiders’ remark made on the 12, Big Bang member G-Dragon and Taeyang, who are also close friends from childhood, took one of “WIN”’s Team A (Kang Seung Yoon, Lee Seung Hoon, Song Min Ho, Kim Jin Woo, and Nam Tae Hyun) and Team B (B.I, Bobby, Kim Jin Hwan, Kim Dong Hyuk, Koo Jun Hwe, and Song Yoon Hyung), to play a role of the teams’ coach and advisor.
One of the insiders said, “I cannot say which team is taken by G-Dragon and Taeyang, but both of them had a great passion to advise the junior artists by telling them about their own experience as an artist and teaching the details about singing, rap, and dance, required for a singer.”
The insider added, “Even though this episode is about a match between G-Dragon’s team and Taeyang’s team, when it is seen from a bigger picture, both of them support both of “WIN” Team A and B. Team A and B, taught by G-Dragon and Taeyang, were judged by Big Bang’s Top, Dae Sung, Seunri, and 2NE1’s CL, Dara, Bom, and Minzy. All of them gave affectionate advice to the new artists in both teams.
The preview of the match between G-Dragon’s team and Taeyang’s team will be aired on the 13 and the episode itself will be aired on the 20. The winner of the match is selected by viewers’ vote which will be conducted for a week from the 20 until the next episode.
Meanwhile, in “WIN” episode on the 13, YG’s “WIN” team A and B form a team together and visit JYP Entertainment with YG’s head Yang Hyun Suk, to have a showdown with a team of new artists of JYP Entertainment, YG’s friendly rival.
