Big Hit and Universal Music Group to create new boy band though auditions

Big Hit Entertainment, home to K-pop juggernaut BTS, will join forces with Universal Music Group (UMG) to create a new boy band through an audition program.

The announcement was made during the two companies' online press conference held Thursday morning (KST). The event was attended by Big Hit CEO/Chairman Bang Si-hyuk; Big Hit Global CEO Lenzo Yoon; UMG CEO/Chairman Lucian Grainge and Interscope Geffen A&M Records CEO John Janick.

Geffen Records is UMG's label which was behind the success of big-name artists including Elton John and Nirvana.

Big Hit and Geffen Records will set up a joint venture based in Los Angeles to launch the new boy band. They are also slated to team up with a media partner in the U.S. to produce an audition program through which the members will be selected. The show is expected to go to air in 2022.

The new act will debut in the U.S., but follow the K-pop system in terms of music, performance and fashion, among others, Big Hit said in a statement issued later Thursday.

Her life’s a swirl of technicolor glamour and adoring fans. Rachel can’t imagine shining any brighter.

The only thing that’s missing is love—but Rachel’s determined to follow the rules. In her world, falling in love can cost you everything.

Enter Alex. When Rachel literally falls head over designer heels into his lap on a crowded metro, she’s tempted to give up her anti-love vows. Alex is more than just heart-stopping dimples and adorably quirky banter. He believes in Rachel’s future—both in music and in fashion.

But the higher you rise, the farther you have to fall. And when a shocking act of betrayal shatters her world, Rachel must finally listen to her heart.
