JYP Entertainment's head producer J.Y. Park will be attending a press conference this coming February 7 regarding the label's next large-scale project, in partnership with Sony Music Japan.
Previously, J.Y. Park hinted at his plans to launch a brand new Japanese girl group through the 'Girls Group Project' at the '2018 Macquarie Emerging Industries Summit', in July of 2018. This new girl group will be made up of entirely Japanese members, a.k.a the "Japanese version" of TWICE.
This summer, JYP Entertainment will kick off nation-wide auditions in Japan in search for potential members of the 'Girls Group Project'. Stay tuned for updates on JYP Entertainment's plans for the Japanese market.
