YG Entertainment‘s mystery girl’s identity has been revealed by the netizen investigators. On April 10th, YG revealed just one picture of the mystery girl, who immediately gained a lot of interest from the netizens.
Netizens have identified the girl in the picture as Jenny Kim(17) from the Netherlands, who was born in 1996. YG confirmed this information and couldn’t hide their surprise when they commented, “The name and age are right. She moved abroad when she was very little so we didn’t think her information would be discovered if we shared her picture in Korea.”
YG also shared that Jenny Kim is fluent in Korean, English, and Japanese and was chosen to be a trainee by Yang Hyun Suk himself for her talented dancing and singing. She’s been a trainee for several years now.
However, when asked if Jenny Kim is one of the member for the new girl group, YG answered, “Nothing has been confirmed yet.” As reported previously, when YG put up the blog post about Jenny Kim, it was accompanied by the title, “Who’s That Girl?“. There was no mention of her identity or how and when she would be debuting.
But considering YG’s pattern of taking a long time and producing unexpected promotions for their artists, it seems highly likely that Jenny Kim with her pretty looks, and ability to speak three languages, will be one of the members of the new girl group.
[Update: There seems to be some confusion about whether Jenny Kim is from the Netherlands or Australia, as the Korean news sources have stated Netherlands, while some unconfirmed sources have stated Australia. Stay tuned for the confirmation.]
