Is it just me or is 2012 THE year for rookies in KPOP to debut? It hasn’t even gone half a year since 2012 started and yet, it already seems like 4387467426842086760 groups have debuted. We’re talking B.A.P, NU’EST, EXO, BTOB, JJ Project, Hello Venus…and then we have YG Ent. upcoming girl group, DSP Ent. upcoming boyband (think they’re called A-JAX…?) and many more to come…or has debuted that I even don’t know about. See, can’t even keep track of the new groups anymore or yeah well…when have I ever kept track of new groups anyways? (My sweetest lambchops EXO are an entirely different story!!)
Then we have this new rookie group, VIXX, from Jellyfish Entertainment who’s also ready to debut, more precisely this thursday on 24th. This entertainment manages very talented artists like Seo In Guk, Sung Si Kyung and Brian Joo and the newcomers, VIXX, are not an exception. They’ve so far released 3 teasers from their upcoming debut single, Super Hero, and they do seem very promising!
Although they may seem promising, I can’t say for sure yet if they’re good or not since they haven’t even debuted yet. All I can say is that they are going up for some hard ass competition because all of the rookies that has debuted so far are ALL so damn talented! If they don’t do something to make them stand out in the horde of the new rookie groups, (and i’m not just talking about competing over who’s got the weirdest group name!) i’m afraid that they’ll easily be forgotten.
Let the competition begin!
