Meet JYPE’s New Japanese Girl Group “NiziU”

This group was made through the ‘Nizi Project’ reality show. NiziU has 9 members, just like Twice. They range from 15-19 years old. The group has all Japanese members (and one member, Nina, her mother is Japanese and her dad is a white American). They will be prioritizing Japanese promotions but will also have Korean promotions. The girls release their debut digital album June 30th with title track “Make You Happy”.

Meet the members under the cut. The video does a quick highlight of some of girls’ performances on the show.

Here’s the song they’re are debuting with, they performed in teams for the end of the show.

TEAM MAKO (only Mako, Rio, and Ayaka here made it into NiziU)
