    • Their debut album was spring up which was released feb 23 2016. The group had been announced and the company was promoting information about them for a while before their debut but their debut was definitely 2016

  1. Can you please separate the girl groups from the boy groups? Or put a gender next to the name? I only STAN boy groups and it’s hard because there’s so many girl groups

    • We only separate the female artists from the male artists when we move them to the main profiles section. Its that much more work for us to add that information and then remove it later, so for now we are going to leave the debut profiles the way they are. ~James

  2. I’m happy that I’ve fount groups on here!! I’ve fount APL and D.I.P and NCT and KNK and I fount my idol Lisa has joined Black Pink and I’m sooooo exited!!!! ❤️ I hope I find some more awsome bands!!! Thanks for sharing your page! -Lindzee

  3. There’s 11 members in D.I.P overall so whenever more info gets released about them please let me know. I’m really curious! 😀

  4. Can a pure Filipina enter the Kpop industry? Does she have a chance? And if she is already 16 is there a chance for her to become a trainee, not only in SM Ent. But to all the entertainments in korea.

    • Just being a fan and an observer of the Kpop industry and Korean scociety, here is I what i have noticed. In general it is very hard to get into any company. Most trainees seem to start training around 14 or 15 years old so that they can debut around 16 or 17, though age tends to be less of a problem. As far as nationality goes, that is a lot tougher, because Korea is not the most open to foreigners especially in K-pop. Unfortunately the more Korean you look the higher your chances, though it is still very very very difficult to get into the industry as a non Korean. I wish I had more positive information for you. If you want to pursue a career in Kpop, just be aware that it will be a long hard road, but I wish you luck. ~James

    • Under Girl’s Generation. We don’t count solo debuts unless they are no longer part of their group. If they are still in a group they are always a “sub-unit” of the group they are in

    • We are not affiliated with SM or any other company. If you are interested in auditioning for SM or any other company I suggest you visit the company websites and look for you answers there. ~James

    • I will be honest with you, while SM says they welcome all to apply they are primarily looking to hire those with Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese and Japanese nationalities. You should always try for your dreams, just keep in mind that the Kpop industry, though expanding, is very exclusive – and SM is one of the most exclusive companies of there. I wish you luck in pursuing your dreams.

    • If we had anything more than rumors there would already be a profile up for those groups – unfortunately it’s all only rumors and speculation, nothing has been officially announced
      ~ Manwon^^

    • We do plan on it. Unfortunately November / December are two of the busiest times of the year for us. Plus we want to enjoy the holiday season as well. We are doing the best we can to make our profiles especially for the Rookie groups but sometimes life happens. Please be patient and check back with us periodically! ~James
