4 Rising Trainees From YG Entertainment You Should Know About

They’re the future of YG Entertainment.

1. Bang Yedam

Bang Yedam was born on May 7, 2002.


He first caught the public eye in 2013, when he competed on SBS’s K-pop Star Season 2.

Last year, Bang YeDam again blew viewers away when he performed Shawn Mendes’s song, “There’s Nothing Holding Me Back” on the survival show Stray Kids. 


He currently attends Seoul’s School of Performing Arts, a popular choice for many young idols. The school’s celebrity graduates include Jungkook (BTS) and Sehun (EXO).


After five years of training, Bang YeDam may finally be debuting as part of a new boy group later this year.

2. Moon Sua

This talented rapper was born on September 9, 1999.


In 2012, she appeared in G-Dragon‘s and T.O.P‘s (BIGBANG) “Knock Out”…


…then showed the world her rap style in 2015, when she competed on Unpretty Rapstar 2.

Moon Sua placed fourth in the competition, but won a devoted fanbase along the way.


Her older brother, Moonbin (ASTRO) made his debut in 2016, so fans are hoping Moon Sua’s debut won’t be too far behind.


Way back in 2012, she was part of the group of trainees formerly known as Future 2NE1


…but, unfortunately, there has been no recent news about this line-up, or about Moon Sua’s current plans. Even so, fans haven’t given up hope.


3. Choi Raesung / Millenium

Choi Raesung, born in 2000, is also known by his producer name, “Millenium“.


At 18 years old, this skilled trainee is already raking in six figures a year, thanks to his impressive composition abilities.

Choi Raesung produced the song “Bling Bling” with iKON’s leader, B.I, and worked on “Love Scenario” as well.


He has also produced tracks for other groups, including MIXNINE’s final mission track “COME OVER”.


Over the last six years, Choi Raesung and B.I have become close friends, having lived and practiced together. B.I. has called Choi Raesung a musical “genius” and believes that his popularity will continue to grow.


Like Bang YeDam, Choi Raesung is a former K-Pop Star contestant. He was eliminated after Round 3, but his talents did not go unnoticed.


He joined YG Entertainment shortly after his elimination and may be making his debut this year.


4. Im Suah

This gorgeous singer was born on Sept. 21, 1999.


She is the daughter of Choi Jung Won, a musical actress and producer for MBC.

As a child, Im Suah appeared on several shows and in photo shoots with her mother.


Im Suah began training at YG Entertainment in 2010, at the tender age of 11 years old, and has been working toward her dream ever since. Like Moon Sua, Im Suah was part of a group of trainees known as Future 2NE1.


Not much else is known about this future star, but fans hope that will change once she finally makes her debut. After working hard for 8 years, she definitely deserves one!
