Good news for fans of the “Jellyfish trio” from popular Mnet program “Produce 101“: Kang Mina, Kim Nayoung, and Kim Sejeong are officially going to debut together.
On June 7th, Jellyfish announced that Kim Nayoung would become a member of their new girl group that is set to debut at the end of this month. Despite having received a lot of attention as she consistently stayed among the “A class” during the first half of Producer 101, Kim Nayoung regretfully failed to claim a spot in the final 11 of the program to debut with IOI.
This year, Jellyfish plans to debut its first girl group ever, 4 years after the company’s last debuted idol group, VIXX. “The preparation process took such a long time because we aimed to create a group with both visuals and talent”, the company explained.
Last week the comapny announced that the new group will include both Kang Mina and Kim Sejeong, who are currently promoting under the “Produce 101” project girl group IOI.
Even though IOI’s activities will continue until January next year, since individual members are still allowed to promote under their own agencies, there will be no problem with Kim Sejeong and Kang Mina joining Jellyfish’s forthcoming girl group.
