"WIN: Who Is Next" was a reality survival program created by YG Entertainment together with MNET Channel. The 11-episode show was designed to pit two trainee groups, TEAM A and TEAM B, against each other to compete in different challenges that would showcase and test their skills in dancing, singing, rapping, and overall charisma. The episodes also allowed the trainees to introduce themselves and tell their different stories, connecting to fans in the process. It was said that the winning group would debut as YG''s newest boy group after legendary BIG BANG, while the losing group would end up disbanding.
The program ran from August 23 - October 25, 2013. Ultimately, TEAM A ended up winning which lead to the debut of boy group WINNER.
