With the K-pop genre growing with new groups making their debut in multiple agencies, fans still keep on reminiscing over remaining popular artists of the leading labels of the genre. YG Entertainment really has been one of the biggest and oldest labels of K-pop and acts like Psy, 2NE1, BigBang, and more from YGE have been pioneers in the global expansion of the genre of music.

Now, the variety show, ‘The Game Caterers 2’ hosted by PD Na Young Suk has released the teaser for an upcoming episode that will feature popular artists from YG Entertainment groups. The episode is said to air on February 25 and will feature Jennie of Blackpink becoming the only female idol from YG Entertainment participating in the show. Other idols who will feature are Jiwon from Sechs Kies, Jinwoo and Mino of Winner, Jinhwan and Yunhyeong of iKON, Jihoon and Hyunsuk of Treasure as well as Lee Chanhyuk of AKMU.

YG Family to get together for 'The Game Caterers 2'

This sensational lineup of present YG artists has fans remembering how former artists from the label like 2NE1 and Psy alongside the biggest boy group to emerge from YG, BigBang, who had been the faces of ‘YG Family’ in their 2014 Asia tour have already been forgotten. While Psy and 2NE1 members have already left the label, BigBang is still a part of YG and active even as they recently announced their comeback.


While fans of these veteran groups are happy that current YG Entertainment artists are coming together for a label get-together of sorts, they are still bitter about the fact that YG Entertainment overlooked the existence of BigBang, not including them in the episode. One fan said, "When u realize the only 2nd gen left in YG is GD, Taeyang and Daesung...... (and Soloist Kang Seungyoon)" and another fan said, "It's really the only big company who was unable to keep their 2nd gen even if they made them what they are today." 

One fan said, "Main reason why i was a hard core yga stan. bigbang and 2ne1. i miss the YG family." Another fan said, "I HAVE BEEN A YG STAN FOR 12 YEARS ALREADY. WATCH YG FAMILY TOGETHER AGAIN MAKE ME CRY HUHU JUST MISSING BIGBANG NEVERMIND WE STILL WAITING FOR THEM." One fan defended, "For those who are complaining why some yg artists aren’t here… DO U KNOW HOW EXPENSIVE IT IS TO PAY THEM TO JOIN THIS SHOW? What more if the groups are complete??? They couldn’t even afford BIGBANG. Let’s be happy that we’re getting a YG family special at least!"









'The elimination of BigBang and 2NE1'

One fan said, “I used to watch YG family in Strong Heart era, there were still PSY, Se7en, Tablo, Gummy, Bigbang, 2NE1 until now it's new gen. Time really flies.” One fan said, “2ne1, bigbang and Psy are three of the strong pillars of YG. YG is YG because of their influence and effect back then. This 3rd gen fans thinks YG gained success because of their faves is sickening.”

Another fan said, “I miss YG family content back then it's teddy, gummy, bigbang, 2ne1 & lee hi.” One fan joked, “BIGBANG seeing YG try to recreate the yg family without them, psy and 2ne1.” Another fan said, “YG FAMILY 2014 WILL ALWAYS HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART. Missing 2ne1 and BigBang so bad.” One more fan said, “YG family saga 2022: the elimination of bigbang and 2ne1.”
