News Outlet Reports Future Plans for the "Girls Planet 999" Contestants Who Will Debut
According to JoyNews24, the broadcasting officials told them that the project girl group formed through Mnet's "Girls Planet 999" is most likely to promote for two and a half years.
They added that the company that is highly likely to manage the Top 9 "Girls Planet 999" contestants will be CJ ENM. If this would be the case, this is the first time that CJ ENM itself would take responsibility for their project group.
YMC Entertainment (a former agency of I.O.I), Swing Entertainment (former agency of WANNA ONE and X1), and Off the Records (a former agency of IZ*ONE) are the labels who were in charge of the management of the groups created through the previous seasons of "Produce 101" and "Idol School."
The officials further stated that there is also a strong possibility that Wake One Entertainment, an affiliate of CJ ENM, will manage the "Girls Planet 999" girl group.
They went on to say that CJ ENM would also probably establish a new label that will be the girls' agency.
In addition to this, CJ ENM's influence throughout the activities and album production for the girl group would be stronger compared to the previous acts.
As mentioned above, the "Girls Planet 999" contestants who will debut would be active in the entertainment industry for two and a half years, the same period as IZ*ONE. However, there will be a difference between the two girl groups.
The broadcasting officials stated that after two and a half years of activity of the "Girls Planet 999" girl group, there is a possibility that some of the members will form a unit.
The girls' range of activities is expected to expand further in a way that they will not only carry out group activities in the future.
