Park Jinyoung is currently the best producer of girl groups in the K-pop scene, according to the Korean news outlet. He is known for forming the iconic girl groups Wonder Girls, Miss A, and 15&, as well as the current ones TWICE, ITZY, and NiziU.
Each one of them has different concepts and have gained great popularity throughout their career.
In particular, these female acts go well with the trend during their times. Wonder Girls had a retro concept, while Miss A had a sexy motif.
Meanwhile, TWICE gained popularity with its cute and lively appearance. This goes to show that Park Jinyoung is aware of the flow of trends, making it easier for the girl groups to be recognized.
When it comes to ITZY, a representative female act in the MZ generation, JYP Entertainment's founder takes note of the hot topic among the youth today. ITZY's comeback song "Mafia in the Morning" has lyrics that compare the confidence of getting someone's attention to a mafia game, which is a popular game for the younger generation.
Park Jinyoung not only composed and arranged ITZY's "Mafia in the Morning," but he was also the one who wrote the lyrics. Since ITZY's comeback track has captured the attention of fans around the world, especially the MZ generation, it is performing quite well on music charts, mainly on the Billboard.
ITZY's "Mafia in the Morning" ranked third on the World Digital Song Sales Chart. The song went on to enter Billboard Global Excl. US and Billboard Global 200 charts, securing the No. 22 and No. 34 spot, respectively. These charts rank the most popular songs by counting streaming and music sales (downloads) from more than 200 territories.
The song has also charted at No. 97 on Billboard Canadian Hot 100. Meanwhile, ITZY's comeback album "GUESS WHO" secured the No. 148 spot on Billboard 200 as of May 15. It also made it to the World Album, Current Album Sales, and Independent Albums charts. ITZY themselves even ranked 99th on Artist 100.
Besides their K-pop girl groups, JYP Entertainment's J-pop girl group NiziU has also garnered popularity in Japan since their debut. NiziU, made up of Japanese members, sings in Japanese but applies the know-how of J.Y. Park and the K-pop system.
The fact that JYP Entertainment produces popular girl groups one after another helps the company's vitality.
While their boy groups earn enormous profits in a short period thanks to their fandom, their female acts can appeal to both men and women of all ages, making them popular for a long time and greatly contributes to the image of the company.
