Yoona Kim is a part of YG Family


Yoona Kim, former contestant on“Super Star K 3” has been signed. YG Entertainment announced on April 4 that Kim joined the entertainment agency, which also boasts 2NE1 and Big Bang, six months ago.

“Since joining the YG Family six months ago, she has been busy training for her debut. We saw her potential on the show, and she has improved so much since undertaking intensive coaching,” a YG Entertainment spokesperson said.
The agency didn’t say whether the 17-year-old singer will join a girl group which is set to make its debut later this year.

While on the singing-audition show on Mnet, Korean-American Kim drew much attention for her wit and charisma.

“If I were to win the prize, I’d live frivolously,” said Kim. A judge from the show, Lee Seung-chul, said that the teenage contestant reminded him of Hallyu star BoA.
