After it was reported that the winning group from ‘MIXNINE‘ had yet to receive any plans to move toward their debut and rumblings emerged that they wouldn’t debut at all, YG took to Instagram to say that they would debut and to wait.
On March 16, however, Yang Hyun Suk took to his personal Instagram to address these reports. He uploaded a screenshot of a news article titled, “Why are YG and Yang Hyun Suk remaining silent on the rumors of no debut? Will YG continue their ‘coexistence’ with the smaller agencies?” Yang Hyun Suk then wrote as the caption, “Coexistence~ we must make it happen. We’ll try hard…please wait.”
Realistically, it was never likely that the winning ‘MIXNINE’ group wouldn’t debut at all. However, there’s valid concern over exactly how long these idols from different companies (and their groups) are going to be forced to wait while YG gets all his ducks in a row.
Doesn’t exactly help when onlookers make the inevitable comparison to how ‘The Unit‘ is moving things along swiftly with two groups to debut.
