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.
