At the event, the co-CEOs discussed various plans for the future.

He continued, “There has also been a lot of change in our internal organization. Our number of employees has almost quadrupled, and we are currently working on changing to a multi-label system. We are also preparing to improve specialization for the business aspect. An example of this is our recruitment of CBO Min Hee Jin.”
Bang Shi Hyuk then announced, “Big Hit and Source Music are jointly launching a global audition,” and explained, “A global audition will be held for the debut lineup of a new girl group based on the philosophy of Bang Shi Hyuk and know-how of Min Hee Jin.”
