JYP’s new girl group NMIXX will debut on February 22 with the single “AD MARE”.
At 0:00 on February 3, JYP‘s new girl group NMIXX released a poster revealing their debut date and time and the name of their debut single. Accordingly, NMIXX will officially debut at 6 pm (KST), February 22 with their first single “AD MARE.” In the teaser poster, the 7 members appear with only their mysterious backs. Fans are filled with curiosity and anticipation about the concept that NMIXX will pursue in their debut product.
According to fan theories, NMIXX may focus on the space concept, in which the debut song will be about the element “water” or “Mercury”. The reason is because “AD MARE” is translated from Italian to English as “to the sea”.
Apart from arousing netizens’ predictions about the concept of their debut song, the poster of NMIXX also drew attention as it reminds people of BLACKPINK. Some pointed out that the members’ positions in the teaser poster resemble that of BLACKPINK’s in their promotional poster for “Lovesick Girls”. This similarity makes BLACKPINK fans frustrated. However, NMIXX fans claim that this is just a coincidence and the concepts of the two girl groups are different. Earlier, NMIXX has already been accused of copying BLACKPINK when netizens pointed out the parallelism between the two group members’ stage names: Jisoo – Jiwoo, Jennie – Jinny, Lisa – Lily.
