JYP's new girl group Nmixx to drop single on Feb. 22
JYP Entertainment’s newest girl group Nmixx is expected to officially debut with its single “Ad Mare” on Feb. 22, according to the agency Thursday.
The group is comprised of seven members — Lily, Haewon, Sullyoon, Jinni, Bae, Jiwoo and Kyujin. All members were born in Korea with the exception of Lily who was born in Australia. She is Korean-Australian.
Pronounced N Mix, the letter 'N' means now, new, next and an unknown variable, according to JYP Entertainment while “mixx” symbolizes a combination of all the different meanings of “n” to create a new unified result.
“Ad Mare” means “to the sea” in Latin.
“None of the members in the group have a particular position — they’re truly an all-round group,” the agency said. “We believe that the group will create a new wave in the K-pop industry thanks to its charm with much anticipation from local and foreign fans.”
The news of a debut of a new girl group by JYP Entertainment itself garnered attention as the agency has seen great success with girl groups such as Wonder Girls (2007), missA (2010), Twice (2015) and ITZY (2019).
In July last year, Nmixx released a single titled “Blind Package” without revealing any information related to the members. Presales of the song surpassed 60,000 copies in the 10 days it was on sale.
From August to November last year, the agency created a YouTube channel “JYPn” and showcased the current Nmixx members singing and dancing. The channel garnered over 22.4 million views over a five month span.
JYP Entertainment is one of Korea’s top four K-pop powerhouses along with SM, YG and HYBE Entertainment.
