THE BLACK LABEL announced the launch of a new girl group on the 6th. "The girl group produced by THE BLACK LABEL is preparing to debut in the first half of this year," he said.
Answers on the final members were postponed to a later date. They did not affirm or deny the possibility of a member being the Shinsegae Group's granddaughter, which was raised by some.
Photos of THE BLACK LABEL trainees were posted on major social media such as X (formerly Twitter) on the 5th. Seven people posed in a space believed to be a choreography practice room.
Among them were Shinsegae Chairman Lee Myung-hee's maternal granddaughter and Shinsegae General President Chung Yoo-kyung's daughter. Ella Gross, a former model, and dancer Bailey Sok were also spotted.
THE BLACK LABEL responded cautiously. It declined to immediately answer whether the characters in the photo are trainees under the label and whether they are related to the debut group of a girl group.
The agency said, "The details (about the girl group members who became popular online) will be disclosed later. We ask for your understanding. Thank you."
Meanwhile, The BLACK LABEL is an entertainment agency created by producer Teddy. Taeyang, Jeon So-mi, Park Bo-gum and Lee Jong-won belong to it.
