SM Entertainment to debut new male group in March/April 2011


SM Entertainment announced on January 27th that they will debut a new male idol group in March or April of this year. Currently working under the codename "M1" (the same name that SNSD worked under before their debut), netizens have been referring to them as '소년천지' (literally "Boy's Heaven" or "Land of Boys"). From speculations as to the exact identity and number of members to pinning their concept as the "next generation TVXQ," the secret group's popularity is quickly brimming over with promise. Though this is the first time that SME has ever officially acknowledged the existence of  "M1", the buzz on internet boards has already reached such proportions that one would think this group was being anticipated for years. With the promise of more information to come soon, SM Entertainment has also revealed plans to incorporate this new group into the OST of its co-production drama, "Paradise Ranch". Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, however. The fans' reactions to the news have been, to say the least, tremendous. Forums are flooded with comments like, "They're coming, they're coming! They're really really coming!," "Don't toy with me SM!" and "Oh no, another male group- this time with kids born in 1992?" With no additional information at the time, we guess we'll just have to wait till March or April to see if this group is another SM match made in heaven or one that'll have us saying "heaven help us."
