From Billlie, IVE to JYP Entertainment’s new girl group, girl groups that have reserved seats as the 4th generation’s leading idols are preparing for a sortie.
The year-end and new year’s music industry is expected to shine brightly with new stars. Billlie (Mystic Story‘s first girl group), IVE (launched by Starship Entertainment) and JYP Entertainment‘s rookie girl group, which will debut in February next year, are the main characters.
First of all, Billlie (Siyoon, Tsuki, Soohyun, Haram, Moon Sua, Haruna) will officially make their debut in the K-pop world with the release of the first mini-album “the Billage of perception : chapter one” on Nov 10th.
Billlie’s strengths are solid and unique concept storytelling as well as music and performance that convincingly embodies them. In particular, Billlie includes Moon Sua, who is well-known as ASTRO Moonbin‘s younger sister, Tsuki – a former Japanese teen magazine model – and Kim Soo-hyun, who played Yeo Bo-ram in the web drama “A-Teen”. The news of Kim Su-yeon (former Girls Planet 999 contestant)’s joining is raising expectations even more.
IVE (Yujin, Gaeul, Wonyoung, Liz, Rei, Leeseo), which includes Yujin and Wonyoung from IZ*ONE, announced their debut date on Dec 1st. IVE, which previously released the profile images of 6 members sequentially, proved their popularity early through unexpected charms. The public is focusing on what kind of music, performances and contents IVE will present in the future. The group plans to reveal various promotional contents one after another.
JYP Entertainment’s rookie girl group following Wonder Girls, Miss A, TWICE and ITZY has also been drawing attention from music fans since the revelation of the members. 6 girls Jinni, Jiwoo, Kyujin, Sullyoon, BAE, Haewon gave off different visuals and charms. In particular, the limited edition of the debut album “Blind Package” has already surpassed 60,000 pre-orders, which drew attention by foretelling the group’s extraordinary selling power.
As such, Billlie, IVE and JYP rookies have solid skills in various fields such as visual, concept, music and performance. It is expected that they will breathe new vitality into the K-pop music market.
