It was recently reported that J.Y. Park is currently planning to do a male version of the 'Nizi Project' consisting of Japanese boys to form an idol group.

Earlier this year, the 'Nizi Project' ended in a success, and the girl group NiziU gained much popularity from Japan as they made their debut in June.

There have been rumors of J.Y. Park planning an American girl group previously. Recently, J.Y. Park confirmed with the Japanese magazine 'Model Press' that he is in fact planning a male version of the 'Nizi Project' and also an American idol group.

He confirmed he is planning the two projects but is contemplating on which to start first. J.Y. Park stated he will see when the COVID19 pandemic subsides.

@potato @QueenGirlCrush do you guys think this'll be the softer concept boy group that we were talking about??? I don't know what concepts usually do well in Japan for boy groups...
I have no idea about the Japanese industry so I don’t know their BG usually do but hopefully this becomes JYP’s BG that becomes a mega hit.

1) I really admire JYP for taking the lead in making international acts. Better then what he did with WG or betting on having other TWICEs/BTS/BPs

2) Idk about an American “idol group.” Firstly the teen idol is pretty much dead in the US & the kpop idol formula of putting parasocial relationships & media personality over music won’t work. The group has to be about MUSIC first, has to have vocal ability, stage presence & not seem so manufactured.

3) Much better plan then SM with SuperM or BH & YG relaying on BTS & BP

4) It would be nice & ironic if the girl group scene in the US is revived by a Korean lol. I hope if this comes true we see Asian Americans finally getting a chance.
