Black Swan is back to work, with new members
Multi-ethnic K-pop girl group Black Swan will be welcoming new members and going back to work after a hiatus that began a month after its debut late last year.
The group’s agency, DR Music, announced Wednesday that new members have been selected “through a competitive audition, which attracted about 4,000 applicants from across the globe.”
“Those who got selected through the audition flew into Korea and have been receiving intense training,” the agency said.
“A number of trainees who managed to survive the intense training will be joining the group soon.”
The agency gave no further details about the nationalities or the number of new members.
Black Swan made its debut last October but its activities came to a sudden halt when former Korean member Hyeme was accused of fraud.
She left the group and the rest of the Black Swan members have been communicating with fans through a Youtube channel. The channel has about 360,000 subscribers and 90 percent of them are overseas.
The current members are Youngheun (who is Korean), Leia (Brazilian), Fatou (Belgian) and Judy (Korean).
