YG Entertainment is preparing to reveal their new female group next year. It was announced yesterday, “After Swi.t, YG Entertainment's new female group will debut in February next year.” The group will consist of the company's Park Bom, CL, Gong Min Ji and Sandara Park. The group was hailed as the ‘female Big Bang' by fans after news about the group was announced earlier.

Yang Hyun Seok also said, “The final decision is that they will debut next February after sorting out the various preparations for their debut. This new female group will consist of at least 4 member, if not 5, though we have not come to a final decision on that yet. But we are confident that they will be a strong group which will display a different type of charisma for fans.”

Originally supposed to be debuting this Summer, YG Entertainment probably felt that more preparation work had to be done. With the remaining 2008 full of heavyweight comebacks, it's probably a wise choice to debut next year instead. Coincidentally, one female group will leave for America in the same month.

There's def more female fans than male fans to circulate the kpop world. Hence boy bands generally command much more fandom than girl bands. Why send away a girl band n start a new girl band?

It's like TVXQ and TSZX ;D It would be nice to have a female Big Bang, but would they do as well as their male counterparts? Hopefully (= I'm just glad to hear Park Bom is finally debuting even if she is in a group, because she's been a trainee for a long long time.

LOL Wonder Girls!

I think it's a good month to debut...but still feels like a long way away but oh well...
Very curious to see their style of music and image..i would be really disspointed if it's similiar to BB's style..but I'll wait and see^^

I heard that G-Dragon is taking part in producing them, so it might be a reason why they are pushed back to debut so late since Big Bang has an album upcoming in November and will be busy for a few months.

Hmmm....I have a feeling people are gonna forget that they are the female Big Bang after awhile and after the become crazy famous!!!! Its like SNSD and Super Junior, supposedly SNSD is the female version of SuJu but uh I dont think so anymore. Anyways I hope they have a good debut!!!!!!

YG Entertainment CEO and former Seo Taiji member Yang Hyun Suk squashed all rumors that YG Entertainment was going to release their new female group some time in October. Instead he confirmed a February Launch Date.

Park Bom, Gong Min Ji, Sandara Park, and CL are confirmed members and YG Entertainment is still debating about adding a fifth member to the group. Yang Hyun Suk didn't say anything about the rumor of the groups controversial name "SISTA." I just hope it's a different name because SISTA is just terrible.

I'm liking the girls already cause I love Park Bom, but anyways, I hope they just stop using the whole "female BB" thing cause it's irritating. @.@ Why cant they just be a new group under YG and let us the fans decide whether they're similar to BB or whatnot after they debut? Oh geez. XD way to gran attention.

blehh,, i agree,
big bang should stay original..
i mean im not against YG releasing a new group
but marketing them as "female big bang" seems unoriginal..
especially for the fact that YG has been excellent all through 2008..

I'm actually pretty excited for this.
That's a miracle since I usually hate girl groups.

I can't wait to hear Park Bom sing.
Her voice is so flawless.

Yeah, pretty much only into this group because of Park Bom.
And CL's rapping is pretty legit.

Hate their group name though.
