Over 15 new boy groups to debut in 2023

AKP STAFF

Reports say there is going to be fierce competition among boy groups this year. 

According to the reports, over 15 new boy groups will be debuting this year. SM Entertainment is planning to launch 'NCT Tokyo,' 'NCT Hollywood,' and 'NCT Saudi' (working titles) which are boy groups consisting of local members. 


JYP Entertainment is planning to launch a boy group from the SBS audition program 'LOUD', 'Project C' consisting of Chinese members and a male version of 'NiziU.' Big Hit Music, Pledis, and KOZ Entertainment under HYBE Labels also plan to launch new boy groups.

Other than the 'Big 4' entertainment companies, mid-sized companies including MNH Entertainment and KQ Entertainment also have plans to debut new boy groups. Major broadcast stations are focusing on boy groups for their audition programs. Mnet is airing 'Boys Planet,' MBC has 'My Teenage Boy,' and JTBC has 'Peak Time'. 

An insider from a major record label commented, "Now that BTS who has been sweeping major records in K-Pop is on a military hiatus, this is the right time for many labels to grow their boy groups."

More groups in this oversaturated industry will never be exciting. I just hope at least one of them offers something different because I'm completely done with all the noise music boygroups these days have been releasing.
