Netizens are raising questions about Park Jin Young’s (also known as J.Y.Park) lack of interaction with girl group NMIXX.
Despite debuting under JYP Entertainment and expected to continue the company’s glorious tracks when it comes to girl groups, NMIXX is said to be falling behind. Now, fans and netizens are showing worries that the group is being ignored by Park Jin Young.
Park Jin Young has always shown close interaction with senior girl groups from the company, such as Wonder Girls, MissA, and TWICE. However, the founder of JYP Entertainment seems distant from NMIXX, despite covering NewJeans’ songs and dancing with IVE Wonyoung and LE SSERAFIM.
Regarding this, many people speculated that since NMIXX is formed under SQU4D, a department of JYP, and not directly by Park Jin Young himself, he isn’t as attentive. However, some others believe that this has always been the case with JYP, and Park Jin Young will show attention in due time.
NMIXX is facing intense competition with various outstanding 4th girl groups
There’s no denying the insane talent of NMIXX, and members of the group may even be considered “all-rounders” with their vocal and performance abilities. However, their achievements have so far not matched their skills.
From “O.O” to “DICE”, NMIXX’s songs are considered too hard-hitting for the public, and their tough choreographies struggle to go viral. Following an experimental genre of music, NMIXX has a unique, but not public-friendly color. In addition, they also faced plagiarism accusations upon debut due to the company’s mistakes.
Compared to other 4th gen girl groups from big companies, such as aespa, LE SSERAFIM, and NewJeans, NMIXX is struggling to find a stable footing. Even against IVE and (G)I-DLE, who are from middle-sized labels, the group’s music does not receive as much recognition.
With visuals, vocals, and talent all combined, yet the treatment NMIXX is receiving from JYP is hindering the group’s popularity. Hopefully, NMIXX will soon be able to grow to their full potential.
