Financial report says no new girl groups are planned for SM, YG, & Big Hit Entertainment in 2019

Financial reports claim that no new girl groups have been lined up from 3 of the biggest K-Pop companies.

According to Lee Ki Hoon of Hana Institute of Finance, "there will be no new girl groups from SM, YG, and Big Hit Entertainment this year." Meanwhile, Lee asserted that it would be "difficult to forecast a failure from ITZY, given that they are a follow-up girl group of TWICE from JYP Entertainment."

Instead, financial experts expect that a company, such as SM Entertainment, will focus on their current artists. With NCT, for example, the agency has plans to make them into a group that sells over 300,000 albums, with more solo domestic and international tours, including the upcoming Japan tour that will begin this month.

The same goes for Red Velvet. The SM girl group will launch their 7-city (7-days) U.S. tour in 2019, beginning with Los Angeles in February. "Having Red Velvet and NCT grow together this year would be beneficial for both of them," as reports claim.

Furthermore, it seems that in the year 2019 we will see more 'glimpses' of rookies -- international trainees -- rather than official debuts, and not only from the companies previously mentioned but also from an agency such as FNC Entertainment

Which activities from those companies are you most excited to see?

  1. ITZY
  2. NCT
  3. Red Velvet

My guess is that they are most likely afraid and want to proceed with extreme caution regarding female trainees. We all know this won't last forever. BigHit will be very meticulous with what female trainees they decide to invest in. They will debut a girl group when the time is right.

Definitely a smart move from JYP to debut itzy in 2019. by 2020, ITZY will be a top tier girl group which makes them ahead from yg and sm’s next girl group. just like Twice

I don't think that matter much, pretty much every group from YG, JYP and SM will be "top tier" because the money and resources they can use on promoting the groups. It's probably a normal cycle JYP wants between the debuts, it's about 3-4 years after Twice, if Twice have a "normal" life span Twice is alreday peaking and "only" have 3-4 years left. When Twice ends, ITZY can be halfways, and probably an other girl group replacing Twice will be debuting.

But as I have said before, I'm a bit suprised that SM are not debuting any new girlgroup. I wonder if they are moving away from the Idol groups and focus more on solo artists.

SM has so much to work with.. NCT, NCT 127 NCT u, NCT DREAM WAY V.. EXO. TVXQ red velvet.. Girls generation (taeyeon) Super Junior i mean he has plenty the last thing he needs is another girl group.. im sure what Sm is planning is another NCT project but with Girls. (which is a terrible idea)


Yg has IKON, WINNER, Treasure, and magnum,, Blackpink.. Lee Hi .. Seoulhy(Sub unit) But he doesn't know how to manage them) so he won't be debuting new girl group anytime soon considering black pink hasn't released a full album... even tho they were media playing blackpink 4 years before their actual debut... so where are all the songs Teddy was PRODUCING for them since back than? instead you're scamming fans by sending blackpink on a tour with 8 songs.. LIKE REALLY??? (personally Yg is putting more in his mouth than he can chew)

Soon YG will have 5 guy groups with just one girl group. And Black Pink has such long dry spells in between comebacks. YG clearly has a gender bias going on.

Not something new tbh, YGE was never that good with girl groups.

Swi.t was a flop, 2NE1 was discarded after the scandal with Bom, BP hardly does something new and aside from Jennie it feels like the company doesn't even care for the members.

Since i am a guy, I would love more girl groups. The problem is that there are 50 times more girl fans than guy fans. Girls dominate the buying power and the concert circuit. When Wonder Girls came to Madison Square Garden, I was the only guy at the rails (stage). Everyone else was under the age of 16 and female. Thats a good reason for the big 3 to concentrate on boy bands...the bottom line!(not fare)

I know it's good if Red Velvet and NCT got comebacks, but I'm afraid that they'll overwork. Red Velvet for example had 4 comebacks (incl. Japanese), they had a comeback with 'Sappy' this year and they'll release another track in February. SM should maybe give f (x) a comeback. (I know this wasn't about the article a lot, I was focusing on that part with RV and NCT)

Meanwhile, Lee asserted that it would be "difficult to forecast a failure from ITZY, given that they are a follow-up girl group of TWICE from JYP Entertainment."


Imagine the pressure when debuting under a big company, and especially after a highly successful group. Basically, failure is not an option. Yes, the company has a lot of resources and they have paved a solid path forward for your group, and as a result you'll probably succeed, and you know you'll probably make a lot of money in the future, but that's what everyone expects from you. Nothing less than that will do. You have been chosen as a member of the group to fulfil the high expectations set on it.

Not to mention that JYP has had a track record of massive success for his girl idol groups.

- Wonder Girls: Won Rookie of the Year, had a good debut which was a minor success, then a trilogy of nationwide chart-topping hits from their second song onwards.

- Miss A: Won Rookie of the Year, had a debut song that instantly became a hit nationwide, and a string of solid successes following.

- TWICE: Won Rookie of the Year, had a debut song which was a minor success, then went on a win streak with 9 chart-topping #1 hits and counting.

- and now ITZY has to live up to this legacy...
