Previously reported in 2011, the news about the three influential artists of South Korea -BIGBANG’s G-Dragon, Taeyang and Jay Park resurfaces once more.
They were the perfect trio the world has been deprived to have, as fate paved different paths for them, each having made an impact and with all three having shined the brightest in the industry.
Their busy schedules got in the way, and were eventually made into two separate groups – G-Dragon and Taeyang debuted with BIGBANG in 2006, while Jay Park made his debut with JYP’s 2PM.
Yang Hyun Suk revealed, “This is the first time I’ve revealed this secret, but during the beginning stages of Big Bang, we were thinking about having a separate G-Dragon, Taeyang, and Jay Park unit“. But in the end, separate teams were formed due to their busy schedules, and they weren’t combined“. This was during his guest appearance with JYP in the past at SBS‘s ‘One Night of TV Entertainment.
JYP and YG have known each other since they were young teenagers roaming around the Gangnam area. They are friends who forged their friendship thru rivalry. They are the kind of friends who shared the same passion for music and entertainment, and yet they walked separately, individually building an empire of their own we know today as JYP Entertainment and YG Entertainment.
These two have always been rivals since young, but these two ahjussis are weird in a way that they competed numerous times, but they are helping each other out at the same time. Starting from Rain vs. Se7en, BIGBANG vs. 2PM, GOT7 & Day6 vs. WINKON, TWICE vs. BLACKPINK, these two have always been partners in crime. Those competitions were the best, if not, the most exciting.
If they would have agreed in the past to meet up and conspire to shake the world of Kpop, we would have seen the greatest trio of this generation. It didn’t happen unfortunately, however, there is a possibility that this might happen in the future, a collaboration maybe, but what about two companies coming together to form a group?
They had that idea in the beginning, before BIGBANG became BIGBANG that they are today, why can’t they try to do it now? They can just divide the shares and have them distributed equally between both companies. Is there something like this in Kpop currently? We’re not so sure, but it’s technically not impossible.
What about a program about JYP trainess vs YG trainees? Both have been very fierce with their very private agency battles anyways, why don’t we let the world watch it? It would have been very exciting. The trainees could then be mixed together, formed into a group, and battle it out. It would have been nice to see a group like this in the future, whose birth will be determined and made possible by two giant companies.
YG and JYP, we would like to see a group formed by both of your companies in the future. Who knows, it might do wonders. Kpop needs a fresh boy group these days.
