August Debut? Why BABYMONSTER’s Fans Think They Could Be Debuting Earlier Than Expected
By Koreaboo on
BABYMONSTER is the latest group to come out of YG Entertainment. They gained a sizeable following after their survival show, The Last Evaluation, aired on YouTube.
All seven trainees were confirmed to be part of the lineup in the Debut Member Announcement video released last May. Here, head producer Yang Hyun Suk gave a general estimate on when they will debut.
Regarding BABYMONSTER’s debut, we will do our best so that it can happen as soon as possible. This is just a projection, but I don’t think it will pass this fall.
— Yang Hyun Suk
Fans believed that they would still need to wait until September to November for the girls to debut officially. As of last April, even the members themselves were not aware of the exact day their music video will drop.

Theories recently began to pop up on the internet that this day may be drawing nearer than expected. On July 3, the comeback of fellow labelmates, TREASURE, was revealed to have been moved to later this month. This was sooner than expected, with the original announcement being that their second full album will still come out in August.
I’m thinking of August. The upcoming full album of TREASURE will be comprised of only new songs.

Given this, some BABYMONSTER fans theorized that the girl group’s debut might have been moved up by at least a month. After all, the company has a history of debuting their new groups in the month of August.

T5 debut- moved from July to June
Trsr reboot- moved from August to July
So it's possible that we get baemon's debut in late August or early September and also I think that 2024 is the year for YG's new bg and blacklabel new gg.
