“I promoted as a member of BIGBANG for 11 years. I don’t think there are many groups in the industry that promote this long,” he expressed.
“While I was in BIGBANG, I saw a lot of singers becoming stars. I saw IU and Suzy when they were trainees, and they both became stars like I had [expected]. I think it’s really possible to see star potential in people,” Seungri shared.
He continued, “While being a judge for ‘MIXNINE,’ I thought to myself several times, ‘Wow, this [participant] will become an amazing star one day.’ People haven’t watched the show yet so they’re probably not expecting much from a survival program, but they will definitely change their minds after watching the first episode. As a singer who has promoted for 11 years, I guarantee that you’ll all be seeing future stars in the episode airing this Sunday.”
During the press conference, Seungri also explained how YG Entertainment is different from other agencies.
Meanwhile, “MIXNINE” will be airing its first episode on October 29 at 4:50 p.m. KST.
