Who are the NewJeans members? HYBE launches new girl group under their label ADOR
HYBE and ADOR's new five-member girl group NewJeans is all set to make a debut on August 1 but have pre-released their first title track 'Attention'
Months after the controversial debut and eventual success of the HYBE label's girl group Le Sserafim, it seems like HYBE is now ready to debut its second girl group under its subsidiary label ADOR (All Doors One Room). After months of keeping the new girl group under wraps, HYBE and ADOR has finally launched NewJeans (New Jeans) with five members who have already released their pre-debut single, 'Attention' that was released on July 22.
After what happened with their former six-member girl group Le Sserafim and their former member Garam, HYBE is taking their new girl group way more seriously as they have released a pre-debut single at the same time as all its five members were introduced to the public at large. ADOR and HYBE also released the track list of NewJeans' upcoming debut album. The new girl group under HYBE and ADOR will make their debut as early as August 1 with their mini-album that consists of four tracks in total, starting with the title track 'Cookie'
What does NewJeans mean?
NewJeans is a group formed by Min Hee-jin who was also responsible for creating epic K-pop bands like Girls' Generation, SHINee, f(x), and EXO. The girl group NewJeans will be making their debut early in August with a bunny (rabbit) as their mascot. Creative Director Min Hee-jin also talked about the name of the girl group and explained why the girl group had such a unique name. Being incharge of creating the new girl group, she explained, "Popular music is a culture that is very close to daily life, just like the clothes that we wear each day."
Hee-jin says that the group NewJeans will promote with a goal that the group will become icons of the present generation. NewJeans aims to always stay on trend just like a pair of jeans which can never get old. Min Hee-jin said that NewJeans is a group which will mimic the every day wearablity of jeans. She added that the name of the group has a dual connotation as their name is also a wordplay for the term 'New Genes', claming their identity as a new age K-pop group.
