Currently, there isn't much information regarding the group or its members, but Noh Hee Young spoils that the group is "no joke" and that they are "like 10 Jennies," referring to BLACKPINK's main rapper and lead vocalist, Jennie.
"Right now, YG Entertainment is busy with producing a new girl group. There is a new girl group after BLACKPINK called 'Baby Monster' that is coming. But I have got to tell you, they are no joke. The group is superb. They are like 10 Jennies in Baby Monster," said Noh Hee Young.
As the video and clip of Noh Hee Young's words circulated on various social media platforms, YG Entertainment fans began theorizing that the upcoming girl group will have 10 members, since they were described as being "10 Jennies."
While others guess that the group will be powerful as if they were "10 Jennies," or that they currently have 10 possible trainees in the lineup, but are still being evaluated, and that four to six of them may be eliminated in the final lineup to debut as Baby Monster.
