    From that rumor I read in Juri's thread, that's 2 girls down confirmed for Korea Debut, one left.

    This is so exciting as a fan of both J-Pop and K-Pop! :banana:

    I hope it's Miho .

    I'm so happy for Miyu though , but would she debut as a solo artist or in a girl group . However , I highly doubt it would be a girl group as the only girl group Mystic has are the Brown eyed girls.

    What benefits will there be in Korea rather than perform in Japan?

    @Riot1 That link be a dud. Here's another.

    @BilyIsFab and @Qtyu33 Maybe she will debut with a group and they've been hiding it from us? She can be hired into the company and not debut as fast as Juri?

    @gotbild New Life Challenges that she and any of the other girls who move to Korea that they believe they can't achieve in Japan? K-Pop has more International Fans than J-Pop? Trust me, I know: one of the conventions I go to have a Dance Cover contest they host every year and the majority of contestants perform K-Pop over J-Pop and the most that J-Pop that gets covered is Love Live....

    I know this is completely off-topic and I'll probably bounce over to The General thread, but, I still strongly believe AKB should look into a sister group in South Korea and keep the K-Pop Idol Formula for them. They have idol groups already that share some of the basic principles of "girl-next-door/cutesy" type idols, examples being TWICE and GFriend. Maybe some songs have Girl Crush concept with the "heavier" songs like "Uza," "Beginner," "BwT" etc etc

    It is not about benefit but more about where she can find success. Right now she isn't really popular in Japan. Even with her graduation, she can only sold out 1 of 7 NWM HS slot. She received more response in her SNS from her Korean fans vs Japanese fans. When she premiered a video on Youtube, the majority of support come in Won and only very few in Yen.
    Of course success is not guaranteed but right now her chance for success is higher in Korea vs Japan.

    Maybelline Morel chances to make it as a singer since kop is more popular worldwide.
    It's also a double edge sword with this ultra competitive market in a country saturated too with idols.

    Ok, I see. Maybe her voice don't fit the japanese style, she sings very good. Not the japanese idol baby voices. But I think it would be a bit hard for learning a new language.

    Her Korean should already be pretty good and foreign idols are normal in Korea.

    In japan and AKB it is rare to see a non-japanese idol, but most kpop groups these days hace, chinese, japanese, Australian, American, Canadan and so on members.

    TWICE for example has 3 japanese and 1 Taiwanese member! It is normal for the foreign idols to not seak good Korean right away. It is considered cute usually when they mess u words or don't understand. Miyu will be fine.

    Well, BEG was great up until 'Signs' imho ... but now I hardly recognise them ... so not sure if signing with Mystic is such a good thing

    oh I'm quite happy and a little surprised (not really) about the company. She'll probably find herself a decent niche tbh. And Mystic is a cool company that seems to give a lot of creative freedom to their artists. I assume she'll be a soloist which makes it even harder I imagine, but I hope she does well.

    Yeah, some of the foreigners are ever rappers. They usually pick up Korean pretty quickly. Look at Sakura Nako and Hitomi in IZ*ONE, they are pretty good already! Most of the foreign idols have been trainees for years so they understand pretty well already, but a lot of them aren't very good at Korean.

    NCT's Ten (He is from Thailand) did say that sometimes he didn't understand the words he was singing.
    NCT's Chenle (Chinese) debuted after like 2-3 months of training speaking basically no Korean and he sang in Korean.

    But most of the foreign idols stick together. In Sm entertainment it is obvious how the older Chinese idol takes care of the younger ones and pays extra attention to them. And there have been idols saying here and there that the Japanese and Chinese idols meet quite often when they have the time. The Thai idols are all friends.

    The English speaking ones are a bit different since there is many of them.

    Most groups debuting these days have at least 1 foreign member because it helps them promote in other countries. Japanese members help with with communicating in Japan, English-speaking members are good for the western world, Chinese members are good for China.

    Really hope the rumours are true as I find that it is harder to be popular/catch people attention as a soloist as compared to being in a girl group

    "Trainee" Miyu is scheduled to live stream on Mystic Entertainment's Youtube channel on Mar 14, 7:30 pm KST/JST (both countries share the same time zone.)

    In case of her continue being idol, Korean style will be a much better fit for her. You may check out Mamamoo, a very popular "vocal oriented" idol group. The line between "artist" and "idol" is blur in Korea and most agencies, nowadays, encourage and support their idols to engage in the producing part of their own songs. Besides, due to long training, Korean idols tend to debut later and retire later. To retire from idol job at 27-28 is common in Korea.

    Even as soloist, Mystic has some popular self-producing artists, especially the agency's chairman, Yoon Jongshin, praised as a top composer of the country, who can give their hands to her song, either by featuring or composing, writing lyric. She also can benefit from the agency's connection within the music industry to get a fair promotion. She can also learn to be better producer from them.

    Miyu may debut later than Juri. Seemingly, the agency has not finalized the debut plan. She also is mentioned as "trainee".

    Mystic is hiding no one. You can see its all older trainees on the agency's Youtube channel. For over a year, Mystic has recruited former trainees from other agencies and it has enough able female trainees to debut a new group right next month. Seemingly, its current female trainees are
    Lee Soomin, who went far in Kpop Star 6 and Mixnine and was Fave Ent.'s trainee.
    Kim Suhyun, who went far in Mixnine and has had few acting gigs.
    Hwang Jimin, also was in Mixnine and showed her sweet voice.
    Lee Doyoon, rumored to be ex-S.M.'s trainee.
    Yoo Jaeha, Soomin's classmate in music field at Hanlim High.
    and Miyu.

    "K-Pop has more International Fans than J-Pop" this is only true for "idol" scene. Many non-idol singers are very popular domestically but barely interested oversea. For non-idol singer, the domestic and international market is much bigger working in J-pop.

    Lol. As if the Korean will ever appreciate a J-pop cover group, especially when it release dated music. Those songs you called "heavier" were moderate to K-pop fans.

    Rather than mindblown, the Korean will be offended by this internal rivalry stipulating system. Another reason why SOL48 will never work.

    Brown Eyed Girls previously was under Nega Networks and moved to Mystic when it already passed its prime. And, if I understand correctly, Brown Eyed Girls is leaving or has left Mystic. Brown Eyed Girls is a self-produced group and less active as it has been around for years.

    Miyu's busking performance! She has definetly already improved both her Korean and her singing. Her notes sound much more definite and stable!
