From Wonder Girls, Miss A, and now to TWICE, it’s quite impressive if you think about the success of all three groups. Park JinYoung really seems to know what he’s doing and it’s no wonder rival and long-time friend Yang HyunSuk of YG Entertainment seems slightly butter-faced in some moments.  Here are the trainees that are currently attracting the interest and attention of K-Pop fans at the moment.


Jeon SoMi

Probably the most well-known idol trainee on this list, Jeon SoMi’s charming and bubbly personality, stage performance, artistic sense, and eye-popping beautiful visuals all contribute to the immense interest she has been attracting from fans.

Shin EunSoo

The second most well-known upcoming idol is most likely actress Shin EunSoo, who appeared on ‘Vanishing Time: A Boy Who Returned‘ with actor Kang DongWon. We can’t wait to see what she does after debuting as an idol.

Shin RyuJin

After blowing away the audience on MIXNINE, Shin RyuJin has shown us that she is built to do what she does on stage. Her beauty is also undoubtedly another attention-grabbing factor and there seems to be much promising potential within her. And not to mention, she has an uncanny resemblance to Son NaEun.

Park SunMin

Another upcoming idol and MIXNINE trainee. SunMin’s cute charm has really captured our hearts. Although she wasn’t able to make it past the knockout stages in MIXNINE, we believe she is another upcoming idol to keep a close watch on in the near future.

Lily M

Hailing from Victoria, Australia, Lily M is known for her appearance in KPopStar. Showing an impressive vocal range and goddess-like visuals, we can safely guess she could potentially take on the role of a leader in an upcoming JYP Entertainment girl group.

Shin YoonA

We’ve seen her from a reality show from JYP Entertainment. Her visuals are definitely on-point but unfortunately, her young age will probably make us wait a little longer for her debut.

TWICE to Appear on JYP Entertainment’s ‘Stray Kids’

While it is definitely getting us all excited, it was something that we could have seen coming all along as well. After all, ‘Stray Kids‘ is produced mostly by JYP Entertainment, the parent record label to the beloved girl group TWICE

The show itself is generating lots of noise among K-Pop fans and with all the cast members revealed, we can most likely expect a show that has something more to offer than other TV programs. The preview for the program shows us a footage of JYP Entertainment’s jewels, TWICE making an appearance in the show as Bang Chan nervously enters TWICE’s backstage dressing room.

JYP vs. YG: The Standards For Selecting Idols

Park JinYoung and Yang HyunSuk are both no doubt successful CEO’s in their own individual rights, having established the largest entertainment companies in the K-Pop scene.

What sets them apart from each other is their completely different personalities from each other, and different taste in music as well. If we listen to the artists of both JYP and YG Entertainment, it is pretty easy to tell which artists are part of which label. JYP Entertainment artists typically have a traditional K-Pop sound that is laced with R&B style vocals while most YG artists have a strong western pop-influenced sound.

It turns out the standards that JYP and YG have when selecting idols for their entertainment labels are very different as well. JYP Entertainment places heavy emphasis on an applicant’s general vibe and personality. Park JinYoung has stated that it doesn’t matter if someone can sing well, dance well, compose well. If that person doesn’t have an approachable personality, he feels that it is not only difficult but pointless to try and work with someone like that. He believes that the process and the journey to success are more important than success itself. If someone is lacking a little bit of talent but has a great aura and vibe, he is inclined to usually help and work with that person. But the same can’t be said for the opposite case.

YG Entertainment, on the other hand, seems to be an extreme opposite of JYP Entertainment. Not only their general sound with music but with artistic personalities as well. Yang HyunSuk himself has said that ‘JYP may place an importance in good personality as one of the qualities he looks for when selecting an idol. I am not like that. I am the complete opposite. If I were to list qualities I look for when selecting idols in the order of their importance it would be talent, hard work, and good personality. I’ve worked in the music industry for twenty years and I know a star when I see one.’ Basically, for YG, it doesn’t really matter what kind of personality an idol has, as long as they are marketable, likable, and have qualities of a star.
