Around the time of BLACKPINK’s debut in 2016, it was announced that the number of members, which was originally planned to be 9, had been reduced to the current 4 members.
“There were originally 9 members but Yang Hyun Suk suddenly changed the plan two years ago to debut 4 members first. Although we don’t know exactly what he is thinking, the remaining 5 trainees are still at YG and BLACKPINK is thought of as an advance party, in a sense, back at the company.” ㅡ YG Affiliate
Among these 5 members who did not debut as a member of BLACKPINK was a trainee named Miyeon, who has recently debuted as a member of (G)I-DLE.
Photos of Miyeon and the BLACKPINK members from the past have been surfacing with many fans commenting on how well she would have fit into the group.
Although the reason she did not debut with BLACKPINK is unclear, rumor has it that she had been caught on a trip to Japan with MIX & MATCH contestant Jung Jin Hyung and asked to leave.
