Pledis Entertainment has announced that they will be debuting a grand 17-member male idol group by the end of the year!
Tentatively named ‘Seventeen‘, the group is made up of 17 members averaging 17 year old, who have been trained not only for the domestic market, but specifically for the international market as well. Although they’re being touted as the largest K-Pop group to date, A-Peace holds the title with 21 total members.
Pledis has revealed that they will not be going the standard route of debuting the group in Korea before advancing overseas, but rather debut a group that is ready to promote in Korea, China, and Japan right from the get-go.
After their debut as a group, the boys will be split into units to promote separately in Korea, China, and Japan with promotional tactics tailored to each country.
Pledis Entertainment revealed a picture of their latest girl group, Hello Venus, on April 17 through their official website. Hello Venus is After School’s sister band, and one of Pledis Entertainment’s next generation idol groups, alongside their new boy band, NU’EST.
Fans will now have a chance to get to know hot rookie group NU’EST better as the boys will become the stars of a new reality program, ‘Making of a Star NU’EST: Landing Operation‘, on MBC Music.
On their new reality program, the boys will be visitng various parts of the country to capture the hearts of fans, as well as carrying out various missions together with their fans.
‘Making Of a Star NU’EST: Landing Operation’ is scheduled to air its first episode on March 21st at 7pm KST.
Meanwhile, NU’EST has received explosive amount of interest after the release of their debut track ‘FACE‘ on March 15th and has been the #1 most searched on various portal sites.
Pledis Entertainment’s new boy band, NU’EST, finally unleashed their full music video for debut single, “Face.” The song is composed by Swedish songwriter Daniel Bergman, applying the technique called dubstep, which is one of the most popular musical styles in today’s pop music industry.
It’s the idol generation. There are so many idols currently on the scene and many more planning to dive in. Amongst them, there are five boys who stand out. They are the New Established Style Tempo or NU’EST.
A representative from TVDaily met the five members of NU’EST whose smiles made the chilly day immediately warmer. The leader, JR, Minhyun, Baekho, Len, and Aaron‘s eyes were bright and filled with passion.
NU’EST is getting noticed for their talented musical skills and stunning visuals even before their official debut. Their first song, “Face” relays a message of being the spokesperson for the teens.
“In “Face” we incorporated dubstep which is very popular in Europe these days. It’s a combination of our message and trendy music. Although it’s our debut song, we’ve put in a lot of our own opinions into this single. It’s especially meaningful because Aaron and JR wrote the lyrics to the album’s intro song. It will be different from other songs.”
Pledis Entertainment‘s first boy group NU’EST will be meeting up with fans even before they make their official broadcast debut.
The much anticipated rookie group, NU’EST has released their album jacket for their debut single, “Face”.
