JYP Entertainment teases new group
JYP Entertainment, one of the top music labels in Korea, unveiled more details on its new boy group on Tuesday.
The duo JJ Project, which debuted in May 2012 with the song “Bounce,” will be included in the new, seven-man group, which has not yet been named.
But no details have been released aside from those two singers, the size of the new group and that its debut is coming in January. The guys of JJ Project are Yim Jae-bum, who is also known as JB, and Park Jin-young, who is called “junior” because he has the same name as the founder of JYP Entertainment.
Both singers have also done some acting, with Park appearing on KBS’s “Dream High 2” in 2012 and Yim acting on the MBC drama “When a Man Loves” in June.
Meanwhile, JYP is also gearing to introduce another five-member group next year, named 5live. This group will have trainees that have been featured on “Win,” an audition program aired on Mnet in September, but the agency has not announced how many of them will be part of the new group.
