Jeon Somi Was Indeed Preparing To Debut With ITZY, Pre-Debut Profile Pictures leaked

Published Categorized as Kpop

It turns out that Jeon Somi was indeed preparing to debut with ITZY as many have suspected!

Pre-debut profile pictures of ITZY were releases, the group included: with Somi- Yezi- Lia- Ryujin- Chaeryoung minus Yuna, they were a five member girl group.

The pre-debut pictures were released online recently and have been shared all over social media. Fans started debating how well Jeon Somi would have suited ITZY and whether it would’ve been better for her if she had debuted with the group instead.

Previously, in August of 2018 JYP Entertainment released an official statement revealing that after mutual agreement, they decided to terminate her contract which shocked all of her fans.

In the following months, Jeon Somi signed an exclusive contract with YG Entertainment’s sub-label The Black Label. Back in February of 2019, her label revealed that she was preparing for a solo debut.

ITZY ended up debuting before her and she followed after them after many delays to her debut due to many circumstances.

While ITZY’s debut was a success on the Korean charts the same couldn’t be said about Jeon Somi. Jeon Somi’s debut performed ok on the charts but was quickly kicked out of the top 10 shortly after she made her debut.

Jeon Somi previously explained why she left JYP, she said,

“We had different musical directions. We had many discussions around the time I was leaving. Back then, we had a lot of conversations.

There was no discord between us, and both of us were cheering on each other when I left. I cheer on JYP, and I think JYP probably cheers me on too.”

Check out the pre-debut profile pictures below. Do you think she would’ve fit ITZY’s concept?

Hi, I am Jass k. I discuss some of the hottest currently airing kdramas on this site in form of reviews an/or recaps, join me in the discussion~


  1. i personally don’t feel like she would’ve fit in itzy. she gives off a different vibe than the others, i think yuna fits itzy better. somi kind of suits being a solo artist.

    1. That’s bc you already seen her as a solo artist, and yuna as itzy official itzy member. Thats why you used to feel like they belong in their present career. I think what they trying to say is somi match itzy. Her personality, and her style is versatile so she can change from bubbly summer concept to girl crush easily. Thats why i think they say she would’ve perfect to debut with them. But she work as a solo artist too, and thats a plus. This is just my opinion.

      1. No matter what the circumstances were dont you think its rude to make Somi experience the betrayal twice? Like seriously if you were told to debut but at the 11th hour you were dropped lkke a hat in seconds thats pretty devastating in my opinion

  2. Somi would’ve been great in a group if only she didn’t debut as an I. O. I. Member that given means she might overshadow the members so to be honest as an solo artist she doesn’t give off a vibe yet that i’m solo and I can take over the stage thingy vibe given also that she is still young. But yeah congratulations cause they already achieved what they dreamed of

  3. Somi lacks the skill to be solo but also would draw too much attention to herself instead of helping balance out a group. I wish her luck in the future and that she is able to improve at her own pace. Itzy is working the way they are now and I also wish them luck in the future
