JYP Entertainment, the team behind the making of the Wonder Girls is launching new group.
The new group is “miss A” and will be managed under JYP Entertainment’s sub-label, AQ Entertainment.
The quartet has already made a start on its career in China as commercial models and is now ready to meet local fans, according to the agency.
Comprised of four members (Fei, Jia, Suzy and Min) the group is expected to add more competition to the girl group frenzy in the music industry here. Min, who had trained for more than seven years under JYP, was the last member to join the group.
Widely known to fans unofficially as JYP Sisters since they started out as a 5-member group in training last year, the group has gone through several changes, most notably the exit of Hye Lim who joined the Wonder Girls, while two other members also left.
“We are looking forward to miss A’s activities, especially because they were created and trained by the makers of Rain, the Wonder Girls, 2AM and 2PM. With `A-class’ talents, the unit will hopefully grow as a group that can represent Korea, like the senior groups”, AQ Entertainment said through a press release.
“We hope to bring more creative ideas and experimental attempts through the band and we hope everyone will tune into the agency and also the new band,” it added.
The girls made their first official appearance at an opening event for Tory Burch’s first store on Wednesday, Seoul.
