SM Entertainment seems to have no plan for a new girl group, despite previous rumors that they were getting ready to debut one.
On an online community, one netizen posted a table apparently coming from SM Entertainment’s business papers.
Below is the table posted. The yellow color represents groups with less than 7 years in debut and red over 7 years.
Here is a translation of this table by Kpopmap.
According to this table, SM has no plan of a new girl group until 2020. It seems that SM will focus on their activities in China with the new group NCT CHINA (name yet to be decided).
Netizens then wonder about the trainees in SM ROOKIES namely Yi Yang and also Park JungYeon both born in 1997, as well as the rest of the girls that many expected to be the members of the new girl group.
To this, netizens commented “What about f(x)?”, “Why? I want to see the new girl group”, “I don’t think they care much about girl group”, “EXO enlistment sad”, “GoEun! I will wait for you until you debut”, “Already enlistment”, etc.
Nothing is official yet from SM.
What do you think about the situation? What do you think will happen to the SM ROOKIES girls?
