Although BigHit didn’t announce any updates, an inside source revealed some crucial information about the group. The new group will allegedly have five members with an average age of 17 years old (15~16 years international age). They also revealed that BigHit supposedly plans to debut them with a very different concept from BTS.
As this is BigHit’s first boy group in 6 years, industry experts have high expectations for the new group. They will be produced by Bang Shi Hyuk, much like how BTS first began.
