YG, JYP New Male Group "EXO killers"
YG new male group 'Winner' December debut
JYP the 'post 2PM' 7 start to prepare for debut as well.
As SM Entertainment's 'hit' male group, EXO (pictured) prepare a November comeback, YG Entertainment and JYP Entertainment are planning their own substantial groups for debut. For the 'Big 3' of male groups, the competition begins again. For YG's new male group 'Winner', this marks the end of 25 days on the 10-part cable channel Mnet Survival Audition "Who is Next: Win". 11 people divided into A and B teams fought in a live showdown where viewers voted for the ultimate winner; the five-member Team A became YG newest male group. They will officially debut as early as December.
JYP is also planning a debut early next year. A group of seven boys are officially training. It's been six years since showcasing his last rookie male group, 2PM. With foreign members from the United States, Canada, Hong Kong and other countries, they were first broadcast on the September 13 episode of 'Who Is Next', where they mixed with the 'WIN' YG trainees. These striking JYP trainees looked decent and the global talent was especially conveyed through these auditions. Each new group of YG 'post-Big Bang' and JYP 'post-2PM' are a group of aspiring and talented boys. EXO already has huge album sales, a strong fandom, and the advantage debuting a year ahead of time. However, in this situation these upcoming groups have been able to capture attention.
