It had been previously reported that JYP Entertainment is planning on debuting its upcoming girl group in early 2019; the agency stepped up to confirm they had been preparing for their upcoming girl group but denied they had a specific debut date in mind.
This is why it was a shock when JYP Entertainment revealed the five members of its upcoming girl group ITZY. Fans hadn’t been expecting this, they did theorize the upcoming girl group name would be ITZY because JYP had trademark the name not too long ago.
ITZY is composed of: Yuna, Ryujin, Chaeryeong, Lia, and Yeji.
Chaeryeong appeared alongside TWICE members on the hit show Mnet’s “SIXTEEN,” while Ryujin previously appeared on JTBC’s “MIXNINE.” Back when Jeon Somi left JYP Entertainment had confirmed they were preparing for the debut of the upcoming girl group and said it would feature Ryujin.
