Blackpink is one of the most popular K-pop girl groups in the world and has achieved major success since its debut in 2016. But what many fans don’t know is that one of the original members of the group, Miyeon, didn’t end up being part of the final lineup.
There are a few reasons why Miyeon might not have made her debut with Blackpink, though the exact reason is unknown.
This article will examine the potential contributing factors to Miyeon’s departure from the group and the impact of her departure on the group’s subsequent trajectory.
From the impact of Miyeon’s departure to the group’s current success, this article will provide an in-depth look at one of the most mysterious stories in the K-pop industry.
Ever since making their stage debut, BLACKPINK has been an unstoppable force in the world.
The group, which consists of Jisoo, Jennie, Rose, and Lisa, has been breaking records ever since releasing their debut mini album, which only had two songs on it: Boombayah and Whistle.
In the history of K-pop, the first song to receive one billion views on YouTube was DDU-DU DDU-DU by BLACKPINK. I will save that topic for another day, but the list could go on forever.
We are going to share some probably unknown trivia about the legendary girl group with you today. Feel free to scroll!
According to a number of local media reports, Yang Hyunsuk of YG originally intended to create a girl group consisting of nine members.
However, the list was soon reduced to five members, including the existing BP members and Cho Miyeon.
However, Miyeon was not a member of the group when his final debut announcement was made, and the reason for this was never disclosed.
Why did Miyeon leave Blackpink?
A majority of people think she was kicked out because of her relationship with Mix & Match contestant Jinhyeong. However, this is not true.
In an interview, Miyeon stated that none of them had a clue who would actually make the starting lineup.
She was among the main candidates, but there was no certainty. Jennie added that everyone was curious about their impending debut—both when and if.
YG Entertainment first announced PinkPunk in 2011 and said they would debut in mid-2012. They ended up only debuting in 2016.
The names Moon Sua, Jinny, Hannah Jang, Euna Kim, Eunbi Kim, Miyeon, Lisa, Jennie, Jisoo, and Rosé were among those who were being considered for the group.
Early in 2015, Miyeon left YG, probably as a result of the unpredictability and the fact that YG kept delaying their debut.
She said that after leaving YG, she needed some time to herself to decide what she really wanted to do. That was also when she dated Jung Ji Hyung (who almost debuted in Ikon and is currently a soloist).
Miyeon acted as a freelance singer for a while, then, in early 2017, she joined Cube. She was already an experienced trainee, so adding her to (G)I-DLE’s final lineup made sense.
Do Blackpink and Miyeon have a friendship?
Public knowledge of Blackpink and Miyeon’s friendship is lacking. There is no evidence of a close friendship between the two K-pop stars, despite the fact that they have probably interacted over the years.
Despite having collaborated with numerous individuals and being in similar social circles, the two artists do not seem to be close friends. They may be friends, even though neither artist has confirmed or denied it.
What time did Miyeon depart from Blackpink?
Miyeon officially left Blackpink in April 2016. She had been a part of the group since its formation but decided it was time to pursue other projects.
Following her departure, Miyeon pursued a range of endeavors, such as acting and solo musical performances.
Since then, she has dropped her own solo single, “Gotta Go,” and she is still pursuing her solo endeavors.
