Earlier, JYP Entertainment had released a new mysterious teaser, informing the public on an upcoming group "JJ Project". Although many had already assumed JJ to stand for JB and Jr., the details had not been confirmed until now.
JJ Project indeed is composed of members JB (Lim Jae Beom) and Jr. (Park Jin Young), who were both accepted as JYP trainees in 2009 through JYP's 5th audition. The two then made their debut in the popular KBS drama 'Dream High 2', familiarizing themselves to the public.
Born in 1994, JB played the leader of boy band in the drama, showing off his powerful dance skills. On the otherhand, JR, who is currently attending Gyeonggi High School, played the role of JB's backdancer, Jung Eui Bong. Jr. was given his stage name due to the fact that his full name, Park Jin Young, is the same as J.Y. Park's, which had resulted in his nickname of 'Park Jin Young Jr.'
A representative of JYP Entertainment stated, "We believe JYP Entertainment's new project JJ will be the most pleasant and exciting project that JYP has ever done. Please continue to look forward to JYP's 'jackpot' JJ Project."
