JYP Entertainment is teaming up with Sony Music Japan to create a new girl band with Japanese members.
JYP’s CEO Park Jin-young will reveal plans for the new group during a press conference on Feb. 7 in Japan. The two companies plan to conduct a large-scale audition to recruit members for the project.
JYP has already been making inroads into foreign markets with the launch of an all-Chinese-member boy band last year. The band, called Boy Story, has been recognized as the most promising music group for 2019 during a recent ceremony in Beijing.
