BTS’ company BigHit Entertainment gears up to take over Japan; new boy group scheduled to debut later this year

Big Hit Japan, the Japanese subsidiary of Big Hit Entertainment, is starting their 'Big Hit Japan Global Debut Project', which aims to debut artists who will play an active part in the global expansion of BigHit Entertainment in Japan.

The 'BigHit Japan Global Debut Project' will be fully supported by a mentor group composed of experts in each field under the systematic development system of Big Hit Japan. Mentors include Bang Si-hyuk or Bang PD, chairman of BigHit Entertainment, music producer PDOGG, performance director Son Seong-deuk, performance director Inoue Sakura, and music producer and sound director Soma Genda. In addition, composer and music producer Ryosuke Imai and music producer UTA also joined as special advisors to add strength to the project.

The first group to debut under the 'BigHit Japan Global Debut Project' are K, NICHOLAS, EJ, KYUNGMIN, and Taki, all of whom were participants in BE:LIFT’s survival reality show I-LAND. The group that was formed from the winning contestants is I-LAND is known as ENHYPEN today. However, K, NICHOLAS, EJ, KYUNGMIN, and Taki were also incredibly loved by fans and they have successfully established a dedicated fanbase as well. As such, the conditions for their debut are ideal. Additional members who will be active as a group with them will be selected through an audition and the resulting complete group is scheduled to debut this year.

You can't understand how sad and dissapointed I was that K didn't make it to the final Enhypen. I saw him being the best leader out there and to be the mom and the dad of the group. He is extremely talented and who watched the show, how his personality really is... eventhough he was portrayed as the bad guy, thanks to the way m et decided to show us. I'm super happy to see these guys finally having the chance to debut. I'm all here for it. But I still hope they will do not only Japanese music. Everyone loves them. And most importantly let's not forget how many INTERNATIONAL fans were voting during the show.

As a fan of the Iland show and being a huge fan of the ENHYPEN group! I was really disappointed that K , Taki , EJ and Nicholas didn’t make the cut at the time! So this really thrills me and I can’t wait to hear them! That being said I also Army and BTS will always be number 1. Loving other groups does not take away from my support of them!! I live in the USA and all these groups are my favorite we don’t have a and never have had groups as amazing as these boys are !! Congratulations!!

Omg can you people stop talking about BTS? I’m an army and I get that you love them and you want them to be number one forever but you have to face reality. They aren’t gonna be around forever and they aren’t the only group in the industry. Neither were they the first. There were many before and after they debuted. Also this article has absolutely nothing to do with them. With that being said, eggies lets continue to support our I-LAND boys as well as the soon to be new members.

Maybe they are trying to get a band. As back up? Doesn't bts have another 4 yr contract with bighits? Then the guys would have to take a break to do there military service and that's approx 18months? I agree BTS 7 should always stay together, even if they get hitched, they should still sing as a group with there moves.

As an army i think you're being incredibly rude and inconsiderate by bringing up a group that isn't related to the post, instead you should be supporting this group or keeping your irrelevant opinion to your self ty

No one cares about your opinion. If you don’t like them then there is no need to comment. BTS is going to disband one day unfortunately, they need other groups to keep their name and legacy.

They aren’t replacing BTS. When bangtan debuted no one supported them and now most of them regret it. Who knows they’ll be the 4th gen superstars.! If you’ve watched I-LAND then I guess you must know how great these guys are. Taki and K in Flickr, the chemistry test blew everyone’s mind. Please be a bit broad minded.
