I am shookth!!
This is a better response than the initial first one. I saw fans saying that yg was picking a favorite and this puts some of these concerned fans speculations to rest.
Do I personally think it’s a good idea? No!
I believe they will succeed in their solo debuts, especially Rose. Her voice is the strongest in the group and she can easily debut a soloist with a sorrowful track that can sweep the music charts, Koreans love ballads.
I am skeptic about the rest because I don’t believe they have what it takes to debut solo and sweep the stage as soloists. I am still thinking about why yg is doing this, it doesn’t make much sense, they are so young and still need to fully establish themselves as a girl group why is he doing this right now?
If this works out and one member excels more than the rest I think then we will see cracks in the group same with 2NE1, but even then 2NE1 members had more of established careers before they debuted solo.
I wish the girls the best and only time can answer my question of ‘what the hell is yg thinking…”
