Teaser image released by YG Entertainment, depicting a possible new mixed group.

YG Entertainment has revealed the fourth teaser image for its new group on Sunday.

Earlier last week, the agency had announced its next artist's debut with a mysterious teaser image on its official homepage, not specifying who the artist was.

The only information offered was the date of the debut - "2014.11.11." - and the words "WHO'S NEXT."

Later, the agency revealed three additional teaser images per day from Friday to Sunday. A woman in a black see-through outfit appeared in the first image and a woman in a pink knitted sweater with a leopard pattern appeared in the second one, implying that two members of the new group are female.

In the fourth teaser image, a man in a white shirt stood next to those two unidentified women.

It is now obvious that the line written on the teaser image, "1+1÷1," turns out to mean two women and a man.

All the members also held a Pepero stick since their debut is on Pepero Day, when young people, especially couples, give boxes of the chocolate-coated sticks to one another.

Show biz watchers speculated that possible members may include singer Lee Hi, Akmu's vocal Lee Soo-hyun and traniees including Jang hana, Kim Ji-soo and Jenny Kim.

Lee Hi, Lee Soo-hyun and Jang hana recently performed on the collaboration stage on Mnet's survival programme "Mix & Match" with potential members of new boy group iKON.

Trainee Kim Ji-soo appeared on Epik High's music video for "Happen Ending," and Jenny Kim appeared in G-Dragon's music video for "That XX."

While there have been various speculations over the members of the new group, some surmise that the agency might release more hints and additional teaser image until next week.
