A new girl group will be debuting very soon and they are out of this world!

Born through the collaboration of Starship Entertainment and China-based label Yuehua Entertainment, Cosmic Girls are expected to be quite the debut.

Cosmic Girls so far consist of 12 members hailing from both China and South Korea. The 12 members go by the names of SeolA, Eunseo, EXY, Bona, Soobin, Xuan Yi, Mei Qi, YeoReum, DaYoung, SooBin, Dawon, and Luda and are expected to promote in both Korea and China.

Each member is said to represent a different astrological sign according to the standard zodiac. Cosmic Girls has an alternative acronym for their Korean name, WJSN (Wu Ju So Nyeo). Netizens and some news reports have even been referring to the group as “little Sistar.” The WJSN acronym as well represents the name of each of the units Cosmic Girls will be split between; Wonder, Joy, Sweet, and Natural.

Wonder Unit: DaYoung, Bona, Cheng Xiao
Joy Unit: YeoReum, EunSeo, and Xuan Yi
Sweet Unit: EXY, SeolA, and Soobin
Natural Unit: Mei Qi, Dawon, and Luda

Despite having yet to have their official debut, the ladies have been steadily active throughout various outlets including music video appearances, vocal covers, and magazine photo shoots.

The official YouTube channel of Cosmic Girls has uploaded various videos showcasing the individual talents of each member. The channel also features a compilation video the Cosmic Girls debut teaser photos.

Perhaps the most well known member at this point is Starship’s EXY. EXY received a boost in popularity in 2015 after her charismatic appearance on female rap survival show ‘Unpretty Rapstar Vol. 2’. Fellow member DaYoung, garnered attention as well for her talent after appearing on K-pop Star at the age of 13.

The ladies have been engaging with fans using their official social media accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Members Eunseo, SeolA, and EXY along with the WJSN group account each have their personal accounts as well.

Cosmic Girls’ SeolA, EXY, Cheng Xiao, Eunseo, Bona, and Xuan Yi all appeared in the Cosmopolitan magazine photo shoot late last month and flaunted their mile-long legs deemed as the “Next Body Icon”.

Fans expressed their excitement and anticipation throughout various comments some including, “Can’t wait for their debut, omg.” “Cosmic Girls Fighting!” “EXY, Xiao, and Bona are so gorgeous!” along with many more positive messages.

It was announced through the official Cosmic Girls Facebook that the ladies will have their first group performance at the Olleh GiGA Legend Match with fellow idol group GFRIEND. Cosmic Girls will make their official debut Feb 25.

Looks like 2016 is off to a strong start for these gals!
