What did the finalist think about YG Treasure Box ending?

On January 25, 2019, the finalists of YG Treasure Box appeared on a special V Live broadcast to talk about their experiences on the show, specifically now that it has ended. Take note that at this point onward, the seven finalists are now being recognized by their stage names.

“More than anything else, I was really happy that I was picked where my parents could see me. My family came to Korea from Japan, so the result was even more meaningful to me.”


“The training period wasn’t short so I was really happy and relieved to know I would finally be making my debut. I think that it helped me a lot to receive so much support. I could mature by hearing the judgments of people outside my agency.”

Bang Yedam

“When my name came up on the screen, my mind went blank for several seconds. Eventually, I thought, ‘I finally did it.’ There were a lot of times where I had to show my dancing skills, but the other members helped me a lot and I think I improved.”

So Junghwan

“When my name came up, I think that all the strength in my body gave out. It was like a dream. I was so happy that I would be able to show more of myself to people. I think that my confidence has changed. After receiving a lot of support, my confidence has gone up. I’ve become ambitious to show a cooler side of myself.”

Kim Junkyu

“I was at home and I checked at 11 p.m. and I saw that my name had come up. I think I teared up a little. I used to have a shy side, but I think what’s changed is that I’ve become less nervous on stage.”

Park Jeongwoo

“I checked [for my name] on the Internet and I could never have imagined the result. I did cry a little. I tried to keep my head clear but the result was so good. I think that I have changed a lot inside.”

Yoon Jaehyuk

“It was tough. Honestly, I thought to myself that I didn’t make it. I woke up in the morning and my mom hadn’t gone to work. I’d woken up in the middle of sleeping to check and my mind went blank. I’m so thankful.”

Choi Hyunsuk

When will the new YG Entertainment boy group debut?

At this moment, there are no details on what the new boy group will be called. All we know are the seven members and they’ll debut sometime in the near future. Until then, all we can do as K-pop fans is congratulate them and wish them the best in their future careers as idols.
