There seems to be no end to the birth of new idol groups. There seems to be a "flood" of new groups this past year in the music industry.

With the start of idol group B.A.P in January, NU'EST, EXO, BTOB, AJAX, JJ Project, SPICA, Hello Venus, EXID, VIXX, CROSS GENE and others were created. For the last half of this year, another wave of new idol groups are planning to debut.

In July, rookie group Big Star, produced by Brave Brothers will debut along with 6 members group C-Crown, girl group GLAM another girl group from CNBLUE's entertainment company, T-ARA Boram's younger sister Wooram's group, D-Unit as well as other groups.

DSP Media also plans on debuting a 5 member girl group called PURETTY, calling them "KARA's younger sisters." YG plans on debuting a "YG version of Girls' Generation" in the last half of this year as well. 

An official stated, "It's going to be an idol group flood for the last half of this year. All the major entertainment groups are coming out with fresh, new idols. These new groups have many talents in order to become more known in not only the music industry but also acting and other genres. This will help in expanding their popularity overseas as well."

Big Hit Entertainment stated, "An idol group's fandom is what makes them popular rather than their music." VIXX's entertainment company commented, "This Hallyu wave is helping idol rookie groups because although they are new, they are already receiving love calls from overseas."
