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."
