A report initially leaked online revealed JYP Entertainment’s tentative plans for their new idol groups.
The analysts featured in the report revealed that the agency will have a trainee showcase on February 27.
They also revealed plans to launch a new girl group survival program in the second half of 2018, possibly “Sixteen”, which would be followed by the winner’s debut in early 2019.
The debut of their boy group in China, possibly Stray Kids or Boys Story, set for late this year was also included.
News of their debut was a hot topic last year, especially after photos emerged of their young trainees going in and out of the building followed by Book Yang’s introduction on their official SNS pages.
Although the report generated a lot of buzz, it was later on deleted on Naver and other news portals.
JYP Entertainment has not made any comment about the report.
