After unveiling each of the seven members over the course of a week, DSP Media has finally unveiled the official group name of their newest boy group, referred to as DSP Boyz until recently.
DSP Boyz’ official group name has been decided on ‘A-JAX‘, in reference to the mythological Greek hero that helped bring victory to the Greeks during the Trojan War. Just like their mythological reference, the group has set out to “stand as the hero in the cutthroat idol competition in the music industry”.
A-JAX is composed of seven members including Hyeongkon, Jaehyung, Yunyoung, Hyojun, Sungmin, Seungyub, and Seungjin, and is a group that is said to possess the visuals as performance skills.
A-JAX will be starring in their own reality show ‘Making the Star – DSP Boyz’, prior to debut on April 24th, before making their debut in May.
DSP Media, the home to hit girl groups KARA and Rainbow, has announced that they will be debuting their next girl group simultaneously in Korea and Japan!
The five member girl group is temporarily nicknamed ‘DSP Girls‘ and will be making their debut through an animation series titled, ‘Pretty Rhythm, Dear My Future‘. They’ll be attending the production conference in Tokyo on January 31st, and this will mark the first girl group debut through an animation show in both Korea and Japan.
The group is comprised of Haein (18), Shiyoon, Chaekyung, Somin (all 16), and Jae Eun (14). Despite still being in the debut preparation stage, they have been receiving CF casting offers from Nintendo and Whisper. At the production conference, the ladies will be performing their own cover of KARA’s “Pretty Girl“.
‘Pretty Rhythm’ is an animation and comic series detailing the debut process of girl group trainees. The members will be unveiled one by one before their debut, and their debut single itself will be released within the animation show.
On December 29th, a post with a compilation of company photos began circulating on an online community board, leading netizens to compare and contrast the vastly different buildings from one another.
Netizens quickly noticed that SM Entertainment’s looked like a town hall, YG Entertainment‘s looked like a venture company, JYP Entertainment‘s looked like a theater, Cube‘s a cafe, Loen’s a bank, Core Content Media‘s an officetel, DSP Media‘s a wealthy home, Starship‘s a villa, and Dream Tea‘s a townhouse.
Netizens commented, “YG’s building is really amazing,” “Loen really does look like a company building,” “SM’s is kind of funny,” and “SM’s looks better on the inside.”
