An “all-rounder” idol of K-pop’s 2nd generation who got accepted to both SM and YG

“A promising person stands out as a young child” – This saying is so true in the case of Gong Minzy, a member of the 2nd generation girl group 2NE1.

Appearing on the radio show hosted by Park Myung-soo last February, Gong Minzy was asked, “Did you pass any other company except for YG?”.

She answered, “Before joining YG, I auditioned for SM and they even told me, ‘Come here quickly’”, revealing that she might have become a member of f(x) if she stayed under SM.

Gong Minzy, who was originally prepared as a soloist at YG, debuted in the girl group 2NE1. The group later became one of the best K-pop idol groups and Gong Minzy was also recognized for her outstanding dancing talent as well as her stable vocal and rap skills.
