JYP Entertainment has recently announced that it will be debuting its new boy group early next year.
On October 29, JYP reps spoke with Star News and said, “A new seven-member idol boy group is planning to debut,” and “The goal for their debut is in January of next year.”
The reps also stated, “You can call them the second 2PM,” but did not further comment on specific concepts or members.
The JYP Entertainment reps also carefully commented on the future of JJ Project, JYP’s male duo that debuted in 2012.
“The members for the seven-member boy group have not been confirmed yet,” and “It hasn’t been decided whether the JJ Project members will join the new group. The final decision will be made in December,” they said.
Meanwhile, the public got to catch a glimpse of the JYP trainees during an episode of “Who Is Next: WIN,” which was a survival program featuring YG Entertainment‘s trainees.
As Team A (Kang Seung Yoon, Lee Seung Hoon, Song Min Ho, Kim Jin Woo, Nam Tae Hyun) came out on top as the Winner, the public’s interest in JYP’s male idol group is very high as well.
