's newest survival program 'SIXTEEN
' aired its first episode earlier today and some of the artists from the label came onto the show to give advice to the rookie trainees who are getting ready to compete.
Jo Kwon and Yenny were the first two to appear on the show and they gave their honest advice to the trainees. Jo Kwon also talked about how to get J.Y. Park's interest. He stated to the major team members, "First, you have to compliment J.Y. Park. The thing that artists from different labels are most jealous about is the fact that we can directly communicate with the producer."

To another trainee, Yenny revealed, "He is someone who makes really quick decisions. Whether you performed well or not is decided within the first 20 seconds. It's not really a good thing that the song gets better towards the end."
Meanwhile, J.Y. Park also gave his two-cents on what he thought about the girls competing as well as the new girl group he is planning on debuting. He said, "While maintaining the JYPE colors, it will be an upgraded girl group. The criteria [for this group] will be a lot different than what other labels are looking for. The most exciting thing is that I don't even know who I will pick.
