Jellyfish Entertainment announces the official debut of its first girl group today.
The agency, home to artists like Park Hyo Shin and VIXX, announced today though its official homepage that its trainees and currently members of I.O.I – Kim Sejeong and Kang Mina – will be debuting in its new girl group.
Although the temporary girl group I.O.I was said to be promoting for about a year after their debut in May, the group recently announced that it would be ending their debut album promotions after the Dream Concert held on June 4 and begin unit and solo promotions this summer.
Kim Sejeong and Kang Mina, who are part of I.O.I, will now be pulled back to their own agency’s girl group, “after giving their all in completing I.O.I’s first official promotion,” says Jellyfish.
Jellyfish states, “We discussed a lot about when Kim Sejeong and Kang Mina would join our girl group. The result was that Kim Sejeong and Kang Mina would join their fellow trainees, who have trained together for many years toward one dream, in order that they get one step closer to that dream.”
Jellyfish’s first girl group will debut towards the end of June, and the name, concept, exact debut date, and member roster will be announced soon.
