Today, YG Entertainment released a video of a group of young female trainees, ages 12-13, they have dubbed “Future 2NE1″. Now don’t panic Blackjacks! I don’t think the name means that these girls will be replacing 2NE1, just that they happen to be a hip-hop group of 4 girls, just like 2NE1.
The video shows the 4 girls, who I will refer to as 4G (4 girls) from now on, dancing remarkably well, though perhaps a little too, well, risque for girls so young? There is the mini-Bom, the tall girl with white shorts, mini-Dara, the one with the weird but cool looking black pants, mini-CL, the one with the colored hair, and mini-Minzy, with short jean shorts. No, these aren’t the names they were given and they may not even make sense to you, but it will help me differentiate them. They all look really good, though mini-Bom seems to be the most nervous. After the dancing, we actually get to see mini-CL sing. In my opinion, she sounds pretty good for a 12 year old. I’ve heard others who have sounded better, but not many. She seems to really be having fun while singing and enjoys it, which is a huge plus. I can’t wait to see how these girls are doing in 2 or 3 years once they have finished training!
What do you think of 4G?
