HYBE is on the hunt for its next girl group. Following the success of Le Sserafim, its first-ever girl group composed of former IZ*ONE members, and NewJeans, masterminded by Min Hee-jin who had been behind the concepts of prominent SM artists like Girls' Generation and EXO, HYBE is now setting its sights on creating a "female version of ENHYPEN". This will be done through the JTBC audition show, "R U Next?". The focus on communication that has underpinned HYBE's success is expected to make waves.
The number of idols dreaming of a fresh start is on the rise. Many are participating in 're-debut' auditions with renewed determination, overcoming various challenges such as contract terminations and group disbandments.
