JYP Entertainment to collaborate with Sony Music to launch Japanese GIrl Group

Previously, Park Jin Young had discussed the future of the agency and how they hope to expand and adapt to the ever-changing industry. During the discussion, he had come up with four plans, and this one will be included in the plan of “globalization by localization.”

He explained, “If K-pop in the first stage was to export Korean content overseas, and the second stage was to find overseas talent and mix it with Korean artists, then the next step is to foster and produce talent directly from overseas.”

At the time, he mentioned their first project BOY STORY, a six-member Chinese boy group, and had revealed that a girl group with all Japanese members is being prepared. On February 7, Park Jin Young will hold a press conference at the headquarters of Sony Music in Tokyo to reveal his ideas and prospects for the Japanese girl group. Afterwards, JYP Entertainment will hold large auditions inside and outside of Japan this summer.

Please don't be called Deminalz lol
Looking forward to this! it's been rumored for so long, I'm a little surprised that they're holding auditions (don't they have Japanese trainees already?) but overall, I'm curious about how it will turn out and will check them out!

It's so interesting how Kpop companies, especially the big 3, are so open and transparent about the fact that they first and foremost run a business. JYP sounds like they're making physical products, not actual music performed by real people
