JYP Entertainment talked about Jeon So Mi's debut plans.

The label revealed that they are not in a rush to debut Jeon So Mi, but will not be including her in TWICE like some rumors are saying. A JYP Entertainment representative said, "Jeon So Mi is still young. She's just now in her first year of high school. We don't have to rush her future."

He added, "We might be adding her in the new JYP Entertainment girl group. The JYP Entertainment trainee pool is abundant, so it's not difficult to create a girl group with members as good as Jeon So Mi. However, for now, since she's still young, we're still taking time to think about it."

    i'm very happy for somi's popularity, but if jyp does plan on putting her in a group, he might want to start promoting potential members like sm does with sm rookies. i don't want this to be another case of  people claiming "sejeong and the girls" considering everyone works hard to debut ;;; thus far, m&h and pledis have done the best to showcase their members, and in pristin's case, i see them as pristin and not ioi girls ft some other girls

    I think she'll be a wonderful idol later on. I think she did say (on the Unnies) that she doesn't have a lot of confidence right now, maybe she'll be better down the road?

    Even that Somi is only 17years old still, even if JYP debut a new girl group in 2020, or 2021, Somi will only be 20 or 21 years old by then and still young enough. and she might be more experienced in dance. sing, variety, MC and more by then to be the leader of the new girl group also.

    Is she the only member of IOI that did not debut yet or...?Some of the girls debuted and others are preparing to do so soon. Is there anyone else left who is in a similar situation like Somi?

    I'd rather them take time to develop her skills versus rushing her into some random girl group.

    It's a good thing JYP is waiting and prolonging her trainee status. From looking at other IOI members that are already debuted/getting ready to debut, their companies are taking advantage of the members because they are still in the prime of their popularity. I feel like that does not help the group out as a whole, though. From what I see, I feel like the other companies were in such a rush to debut girl groups because IOI did so well and all the IOI members were gaining fame. Take time, JYP! Debut girls who are ready for the hard work they will put forth! Don't rush just because Somi is popular right now. Quality is always first in my opinion! (not saying other groups not have quality!!!!!!!)

    Somi was the maknae of IOI being only 16 years of age so they have a lot of time

    I think it's smart they're waiting. If she debuted now she would likely get lost in this already saturated sea of solo idols/artists trying to compete with acts like IU etc. Maybe the future will hold a better opportunity!

    She's only in highschool? Damn, and here I thought she was older than that since she was crushing on someone older than her.

    Good take your time, let her live a little she's only a kid after all. Besides as a trainee she more famous than those in her position. There will be many who wish that had what she has already even though she hasn't debuted, but lets just support and encourage her with out positive comments. Well at least she's replied to my comments on Vlive once or twice!! XD
