Rookie JYP girl group ITZY drops technicolor prologue film 'ITZY? ITZY!'

The new JYP girl group ITZY has finally dropped their first teaser video.

On January 21st KST, JYP Entertainment unveiled the prologue film 'ITZY? ITZY!' that presents the five members in the group: Yuna, Ryujin, Chaeryeong, Lia, and Yeji. As familiar faces filled the screen, past speculations of the very members who have joined the group intrigued the netizens. 

Along with the prologue video, ITZY opened its official website as well as other social media platforms. The website gives you more clues about the number of upcoming teasers, a background image of their overall concept, and their tagline "IT'Z DIFFERENT". 

The pronunciation for "itzy" spoken in Korean also translates to "they got it," creating a positive double meaning for their group name. Stay tuned for more updates!

Patience worked for her. For the majority of idol trainees, all the patience in the world isn't going to get them anywhere, and nobody can really tell them if they'd be better off staying 'patient' in one situation or moving on, to another company or out of the trainee life entirely.


For every story like Jihyo's where a trainee sticks it out for a long time and ends up in a top idol group, there are probably thousands of stories of kids who train for years and just get dropped by their company because there's no place for them as a debuted artist after all, even if they're incredibly talented. It's gratifying to see trainees who have worked hard finally succeed, but there's nothing to learn here.

even as a Chaeyeon fan i gotta agree since IZ*ONE is only temporary while Chaeryeong is now set for life especially if they become as big as TWICE

Finally a rookie group with less than 7 members. I feel like rookie groups these days all have an average of 9 members and that causes a major imbalance for screen time.

yall! I finally understand their group name meaningh! Itzy = 있지 (it-ji) which translates to "got it" or "there is." So JYP is basically saying that this group's got it all , can't wait for their debut !!!

tbh even though their tagline is "IT'Z DIFFERENT" the teaser didn't make me feel they were that different. It felt more like an amalgamation of few groups. But it's 70 seconds, what can you really do in that time.

Finally? JYP has been doing girl crush concept since Miss A. And TWICE was also set with a girl crush concept (like ooh ahh) before they got a lot of recognition by doing cute concept (cheer up). So "finally" is not really the right word 😉

According to fellow user above, Miss A is not really a girl crush concept but a sexy concept and i think that's true, girl crush is different.


But TWICE, i recall on their V Live saying that Like Ooh Ahh was a girl crush/wild & edgy concept. Some of them weren't even allowed to smile on their teaser photoshoot.

*Physical* VISUALLY, ITZY Group reminds me of BLACKPINK Group (YGe Agency). But the ITZY 'Fashion Concept' Photos seem to have a more 2NE1 Group (YGe Agency) feel to them. Meaning that TWICE Group (JYPe) has already 'staked out' the 'Prim and Proper, but Stylish' Concept. Anticipating that ITZY Group will seem a bit more of a 'Rebel and Daring' type K-pop Group Concept.

JEON SOMI (past JYPe Agency ; IOI Group) is being mentioned with regard to her NOT being a member of this new (JYPe Agency) ITZY Group. It MAY be that JYPe Agency did NOT desire that ITZY Group would debut in the same 'concept' manner as 4MINUTE Group (HYUNA, past WONDER GIRLS) did debut. (CUBE Agency) 4MINUTE Group did clearly *feature* HYUNA from the very beginning (no problem here on that).

About the girls I have nothing to say about, they are killing it, and I love that It's only 5!


From business perspective, whereas Twice has a strong focous on the Asian market, I think this new group has the potential to break through internationally, probably this is JYP's answer to Black Pink. (I know Twice has many international fans, but I hope you get what I mean).

Literally most gg now don't do cute.


IZ*ONE debut wasn't a cute concept. (G)I-DLE doesn't have a cute concept. Blackpink doesn't have a cute concept. Twice is going away from the cute concept. Gugudan stopped cute concepts after their debut. CLC doesn't do cute anymore. Red Velvet sometimes does cute but they have their other side. Mamamoo doesn't do cute concepts. APink stopped doing cute concepts.


Sooooo not many groups do cute anymore. Besides Fromis, Momoland, GFriend, LOONA (maybe??), and Pristin (who has been on hiatus for a year)

I would disagree with some the groups you said do cute tough.

Love Bomb by fromis is not cute, it's leaning more into a funky vibe,

GFriend is powerful innocence which does not equal cute.

LOONA has always been different. If you are looking at the teasers for xx and how the general lore is progressing, they will have a new sound, something will change.


But I do agree with the point that cuter, brighter concepts are not the norm anymore. Heck even sexy isn't done that much either( as in AOA's Miniskirt, Girl's Day Something)
