JYP Entertainment, a major talent agency in South Korea, is set to launch a new K-pop girl group next year, local news outlets reported Thursday.
“We are preparing a six-member team, and are aiming to make its debut next year,” a JYP official told Star News. According to the official, the team’s qualifications will be “the best ever.”
Another JPY official said the group is the result of an intense training program that is “more systematic than programs the agency provided for any other team.”
The agency will also introduce two boy bands in 2014.
JYP Entertainment, founded by singer and producer Park Jin-young, has a track record of training and debuting K-pop stars. The company particularly had success with its girl groups, such as Wonder Girls and Miss A.
