However, recent news reports have stated that the agency has recruited Min HeeJin, a former employee of SM Entertainment who was played a big role in producing the concepts for popular groups such as f(x), Girls’ Generation, and Red Velvet, in efforts to launch a new girl group.
Reports have stated that Big Hit Entertainment intends to establish a subsidiary label to launch their new girl group, headed by Min. At the moment, the specific details regarding how many members as well as the timeline of debut have not yet been revealed.
