YG/SM/JYP – all the entertainment companies need a hit male and female group!


[머니투데이 스타뉴스 김지연 기자]

The time when you could survive with just one hit success has passed: with the new spring atmosphere, many entertainment companies are moving busily to receive warm spring (I think they used this term ‘spring’ metaphorically as the season of change and being new).

YG entertertainment, SM entertainment, DSP entertainment, JYP entertainment are all working their hardest to mark their grounds; to make groups that represent their company.

First of all, YG has revealed their plan; they are preparing to debut a new female group to continue the legend of Big Bang (debut in 2006); 21 (To Anyone 2NE1) is scheduled to debut soon.

21 is already experiencing publicity before their official debut for singing ‘Lollipop’ with Big Bang.  Lollipop has been ranked on the top on many music downloading sites amonst songs of  Son Dam Bi, Seo Taeji, and Super Junior.  They are stirring up high interest already for being the first female idol group YG is showing.


A producer said about this phenomenon as ‘nothing guarantees your safety with just one hit group.  If you have successful male and female groups, it definitely helps in promoting the new singer/group you may be preparing.  Because the fans most consist of young teens to 20s, the presence of male and female groups become crucial.  Hence, many entertainment companies are trying hard to create that successful idol group’.
