The New Six, a six-member boy group under P-Nation led by PSY, was formed through the SBS audition Loud and debuted in May 2022. They made a comeback with the digital single 'FUEGO' last March and achieved the success of exceeding 10 million views of the music video within 5 days of its release.

The 8-member boy group 8TURN debuted with their first mini album '8TURNRISE' in January last year. The third mini-album "STUNNING", released in January, surpassed 119,100 copies in the first week, showing more than twice the growth compared to the previous album.

As expectations for the three teams' performances grow, attention is focused on which other teams will join the lineup and compete with them.
