"We signed with Han Byul, who's shown talent in 'K-pop Star 6.' The trainee is young so she will receive systemic training three to four times week while continuing with school," YG said.
Han, who appeared in the final season of the popular SBS TV show earlier this year, is half Korean and half Swedish. She received high marks from the jury, especially from YG founder and former pop artist Yang Hyun-suk.
YG has recruited a number of alumni of the "K-pop Star" series.
