Bang Ye Dam has been training at YG ever since he took second place in 2013’s “K-Pop Star 2” behind Akdong Musician. He was 12 at the time. Now 16 (Korean age), the singer has grown up quite a bit since we saw him last on “K-Pop Star.”

A source from YG Entertainment said, “Considering that BIGBANG, WINNER, and iKON were all in their early 20s when they debuted, the fact that the new boy group will be 15-17 is huge. But even though they’re young, they’ve undergone four to five years of training, as well as passed Yang Hyun Suk’s strict evaluations; they may as well be veterans.”
