JYP Entertainment reportedly preparing to debut 3 more groups following ITZY

JYP Entertainment has plans to debut multiple groups.

According to Business Post on January 22, JYP Entertainment has plans to debut a total of 5 groups in 2 years. The first was Stray Kids in 2017. Next is the impending girl group ITZY, who is reportedly debuting in mid-February. Then 3 more groups will debut following ITZY. 

Financial researcher Lee Ki Hoon commented, "This year, there will be fiery competition among boy groups with Big Hit Entertainment and YG Entertainment both debuting new teams." On the contrary, "The competition in girl groups won't be as competitive. As a result, the new JYP Entertainment girl group will be at the center of attention."

  1. ITZY

I hope they have unique concepts (and by unique, I mean unique within JYP and not within the K-Pop world). ITZY looks to be different from Twice. I don't want JYP to stretch itself too thin.


When Wonder Girls got big, he got too comfortable and tried to promote them in the U.S. and a slew of girl groups (especially the rise of SNSD and 2NE1) made for more competition. When 2PM got big, he promoted them for too long in Japan and gave them lackluster comebacks. Miss A could have been a great group w/ "Bad Girl Good Girl", "Goodbye Baby", and "Touch" as well as Suzy's popularity in Korea but JYP favored Suzy's solo activities over the group and Miss A also weren't given the best comebacks afterwards.

Do whatever but in future just don't ignore the senior groups because of the new ones.

Each group has their own promotion team :) that decides concept, music, comeback dates etc.

That's not what I am saying... Actually in most of the companies when a new group comes up the company intentionally ignores the seniors to make the new ones shine and rise.

After all three more groups are really too much. No hate . Just saying.

Awesomeness1111 is right. The company won't ignore the seniors because each group has their own promotion team and the promotion team is in charge of only that group. The promotion team gets them schedules and plans comebacks so they won't be ignored no matter what.


JYP already has that Chinese group, Boy Story, and he has announced that he wants to debut a girl group in Japan. My guess is that these three groups won't all be Korean. Maybe 1 more Korean group plus the Japanese girl group and a Chinese girl group.

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe they want a Chinese girl group to go with the boy group? Them plus the Japanese group would already make 2 new groups so if they debut 1 more Korean group that would be 3. Or whoever wrote the article could have just forgotten about Boy Story because Boy Story, Stray Kids, ITZY, Japanese gg, Chinese gg would make 5 total.

JYP has A LOT of female trainees so another girl group would make sense. As for concept maybe they will be more like Mamamoo (not the sexy part but the amazing vocals part). Lily would be perfect in a group like that.

druggie yg new group is a competition to txt???? What a joke. Lmao


Non of druggie yg group can even reach yo 1/10 of bts' success so druggie yg is far frm being a competition to bighit. Druggie yg will continue flopping hard in 2019 and the company will probably go bankrupt by end of 2020


Furthermore that druggie yg new boy group is full of uglies esp that ahjusi bangyedam

Some of these groups are Japan focused and China focused so calm down people! lol If we get 1 J group, 1 C group and already have 2 K groups, that means we have 1 group unaccounted for. I think JYP will debut a Korean based ballad group. JYP still has some power vocals in their trainee list and no groups like a 2AM anymore so that could be good.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Maybe a female group with Lily. He could even round up some of his current soloists like Jimin for that group if he wanted to.

I hope they don't rush too much with the debuts or else they will end up like SM. SM has many artists but they don't get promoted alot and just end up having no comeback for years. JYP should stay Quality over Quantity

JYPE is going modular. Meaning each group will be operating as a separate business unit. Each group will have their own creative staff, marketing team and so on. That way there won't be a crowd of groups fighting for what manpower is available. So any group could stand alone or, God forbid, fail alone.

I'm ambivalent about this cause of the overwhelming volume of good music that's been coming out, there's not enough hours of the day to listen to it all, plus the world outside of kpop and my ever growing Watch Later list, when will it ease up?
