JYP Entertainment & Big Hit Entertainment to reportedly debut new idol groups next year


JYP Entertainment
 and Big Hit Entertainment are reportedly preparing to debut new groups next year.

According to reports on December 18, JYP Entertainment is reportedly preparing to debut a new girl group with 5 members. The girl group was initially planned to be revealed this winter, but it seems they'll likely be introduced next year. The group would be JYPE's first girl group since TWICE, so fans are taking special interest.

BTS' label Big Hit Entertainment are also expected to debut a new boy group early next year. This would mark the agency's first group since BTS in 6 years. It's also reported FNC Entertainment is grouping a 10-member girl group dubbed as "AOA's younger sister group."

Stay tuned for updates!

Hasn't all of this been previously confirmed and covered already? The FNC girl group is called Cherry Bullet and allkpop have already reported on them extensively, same with JYPNGG & the Bighit NBG...

Indeed, AKP has posted several articles about Cherry Bullet so it's odd that they suddenly forgot their name and are acting like they just heard about them.

Depending on who you ask it's already either 3rd or 4th gen. But assuming it's 3rd gen, then that started around RV, GFriend, Twice which was about 2015. JYP's next girl group will most definitely be considered the current generation.

Overall idols third gen was around 2011-2013. The fourth gen is said to be starting by some people because there are a vast number of new groups debuting this year and next year from bigger companies.

It's not even close to 4th gen yet. A real generation is 20+ years, even if you shorten it for Kpop it has to be 10 years minimum. So the 4th gen will start in 2023 or 2024.

I hate that the members of the JYP group keep going down. I know JYP doesn't like to repeat group numbers but I would be down for a 7 member girl group.

I don't care if this is a daily reminder- 2019 is going to be big for Kpop, I can feel it. Something tells me more Kpop groups will go big in the USA, Europe and Spain. And something tells me it will be a year of breaking records

JYP should announce a specific date soon. I've been waiting all year for the announcement and this same news article pops up every few months. One thing for sure is that they will not have Twice's color. Miss A or BP kind of concept I feel.

That was a super old group that never ended up debuting because BigHit decided to focus on BTS instead, they might sill end up using that name though but the members will be completely different.

It's a shame that Big Hit just wants to make BTS 2.0 instead of debuting a girl group. I would have been quite interested to see the potential of a girl group from BTS' company.

I can see how bighit is a little cautious of starting a girl group project again. their first girl group GLAM did not do so well, plus one of the members had a huge controversy with a very famous actor. Theyre probably cautious that something like that will happen again.

Big Hit doesn’t have any female trainees though, all they have is male.

I hope they won't be going for BTS 2.0 honestly, but it's still to see. I wished for a girl group from BigHit too but I think there's an entire context to take into consideration that could explain why they didn't. BigHit had a girl group that I could call similar to BTS because they made a few social commentaries in their, unfortunately not many, songs and they were quite chill compared to other girl groups and that was GLAM, but GLAM disbanded because one member ended up in jail. That said, I just think the main reasons BigHit doesn't want to risk with another girl group right now is 1. they want to avoid any potential drama; 2. they chose to play safe with another boy group because, unfortunately, boy groups generally do better than girl groups (hopefully with the raise of this generation's girl groups that will change) so from a marketing perspective it makes sense seeing how BTS will eventually have to go to the army so they need a group that might be easier to establish till that point. Ofc, if they make BTS 2.0 then I'll be throughoutly disappointed. I'm sure many fans would love them because of it regardless, but it'd sure make it hard for me to stan anybody that's supposed to be a copy or "replacement" of somebody else. Let's hope for the best and at least some uniqueness in these new group's concept. Maybe we might be in for a surprise.

Nah, you should be scared for your bias group. Another boy group = new competition = harder for them to get recognition. Plus, if Big Hit will play their cards correctly, many ARMYs will support the new Big Hit BG as well. BTS will do just fine, they will remain unbothered kings, can't say the same for your bias group though. 😊
