Jellyfish Entertainment is finally debuting their long-awaited girl group!


Jellyfish tweeted, "What is #gx9? #JellyfishGirlGroup #9Girls #KimNaYoung #KimSeJung #KangMiNa #Who_is_next_girl?". The girls will be the first idol girl group Jellyfish Entertainment is debuting, and the second since VIXX four years ago.

The 9 membered girl group will include 'Produce 101's Kim Se Jung, Kim Na Young, and Kang Mi Na, three girls who ranked high for entirety of the show. Kim Se Jung and Kang Mi Na debuted as IOI and Kim Na Young ranked #14, so anticipation is high for these girls as well as the 6 other girls that's to be revealed.


Are you looking forward to the girls?

    Based on the Jelpi girls p101 evaluation performance I thought they are going to have a MAMAMOO x TTS kind of vibe group, spiced up with VIXXs uniqueness.(that would have been awesome). But it's unlikely if the group will have 9 members. nvm, I am still anticipating it!

    I honestly think jellyfish made a mistake with putting 9 members, and when they introduced the new members they gave very little info. All the attention will be on the produce 101 girls and the other members will have to work very hard. It has nothing to do with snsd cuz they don't own the number 9 and guess wat they ain't 9 anymore, so that excuse is invalid. Most importantly... The name...please no...I'm begging u...

    I hope they will bring something new to the industry instead of using recycle girl group concepts. Looking at those 3 well-known members, I think vocal wise should be not a big issue. Anyway, I am so looking forward to these girls!

    The girl group sizes are increasing nowadays. I would have thought companies would go in the opposite direction.

    Not going to lie, I'm not fond of seeing them with 9 members.  It's going to be hard distributing income for 9 members, unless they can be very popular like Twice.  The three IOI members have a lot of fans and talent and to mix/dilute them with six additional members means less parts for the popular three.   I'll just wait and see their debut and a few comebacks to see if it's a good decision.

    I actually love the idea that jelpis new girl group is going to have 9 members. I have great expectations from jellyfish! I hope this new girl group turns out to be as unique as VIXX and that they're not like the usual sexy/cute girl groups.

    some of you guys are saying why are they copying snsd..well if they had 4 members, ppl would say "oh are they trying to be the new..." 2ne1/sistar/secret/miss A/girl's day/mamamoo... 5 members, 4minute/EXID/WG/fx (now its 4). 6 members, apink/tara. 7 members, AOA/lovelyz/rainbow. 8 members, afterschool/oh my girl. 9 members, snsd/twice. "make a new blah blah.." well wtf do yall want? a new number.. 10 members? theyre just tryin to even out the 4/5 member groups lol theres way more 4/5 member groups than 9 member group.. and seeing how successful snsd AND twice became.. i wouldnt doubt jellyfish's decision on 9

    For me, I think it does sound similar to SNSD but I'm not going to let that determine what the whole group actually is. There aren't many girl groups that have 8+ members and I think that's why many people automatically relate the number to snsd. Four to seven members seem more common and I don't anyone would say they're trying to be like so and so unless they really have no life except to hate on girl groups. I get it, being original can be hard sometimes, so 9 members sound perfect but ever since the whole Jessica and snsd situation, seems like some companies are trying to create these groups on purpose to get attention. Personally, I think getting attention from something that you did on your own without having to get obvious references from somewhere else will be much more respected. I just wish Jellyfish would be a little more original than that. Like I said earlier though, it's not that I hate the group (which would be stupid since we haven't seen what these girls got yet) it just sounds like an idea somewhat desperate to get some attention. The start may be a little odd to me (I better get used to it at this rate) and who knows, I may end up being the biggest fan ever. Nonetheless I wish them success whether or not because this industry is tough and very few actually make it. I don't intend to start a fanwar, I just thought that I would share my two cents.

    it's true that just off the number of groups, one would expect them to copy so and so.. and like you said, also maybe it is that attention kpop's been getting with jessica leaving snsd.. (although, other girl groups been losing members left and right these days). and imma guess with a huge group like this, the songs from this group will sound very much like typical girl groups coming and going (hope jellyfish proves me wrong on that). I would much prefer a trio (the produce 101 girls) but i guess im just happy they didnt make it as big as starship's cosmic girls (12 members' just insane)

    Yeah, that is insane! Hopefully gx9 can break through with a fresh new sound.

    If you think of how VIXX is called VIXX, gx9 kind of makes sense :D

    would one of the "X" mean of the 10 contestants from that mnet show they were from? "VI" x "X" = 6 of 10.
