History

1997–1999: Formation and first generation K-pop artist

 
Park Jin-young, founder of JYP Entertainment

JYP Entertainment was founded in 1997 by South Korean singer-songwriter J. Y. Park as Tae-Hong Planning Corporation, which eventually became JYP Entertainment in 2001. In 1997, the company signed its first artist and female solo artist, Pearl.

In 1999, SidusHQ introduced singer-songwriter and JYP Entertainment founder Park Jin-young to be their producer and mentor.

2000–2009: Early success and second generation K-pop artists

In December 2000, JYP Entertainment signed Rain as a trainee,[7][8] who made his debut two years later.

He became the first Korean Global solo artist that expanded outside of South Korea and became successful.[9] Rain later opened a subsidiary label named J. Tune Entertainment.

On December 27, 2002, the company's first boy group was a four-member vocal oriented group Noel, but they failed to attract popularity. JYP turned its focus to the duo brothers "One Two" in 2003 and in 2004, after the boy band g.o.d.'s group contract with Sidus HQ ended, they signed a contract with JYP Entertainment.[10]

 
g.o.d has won four Grand Prize's for Best K-pop Group Artists

Other notable artists that debuted during these era includes: Noel, Park Ji-yoon, Byul, Lim Jeong-hee, One Two, Ryanga Rhanga, and IVY.

Mainstream success of its second generation artists

In May 2006, JYP formed its first girl group, Wonder Girls,[11] who became a commercial success and was the first South Korean group to enter the Billboard Hot 100 in 2009 when their song "Nobody" charted at No. 76.[12][13] Their success lead to a management deal with the Jonas Group, which allowed the Wonder Girls to open the Jonas Brothers's world tour in select cities.[14]

In 2008, the competitive reality series Hot Blood Men was created, pitting two teams of male trainees against each other for the chance to debut. The winning group, One Day, was later split into two boy bands, 2PM and 2AM; both debuted that same year.[15] 2AM was jointly contracted with Big Hit Entertainment.[16] Later in October, JYP Entertainment opened the JYP Beijing Center as their China branch. The same year CAA (Creative Artists Agency) included JYP Entertainment in its roster of high-profile clientele.[17][18]

2010–2019: Further success and third generation K-pop artists

On December 28, 2010, it was announced that JYP Entertainment has become the largest shareholder of J. Tune Entertainment.[19][20] KMP Holdings was also established via a joint venture between JYP Entertainment and several other large record labels.[21] The subsidiary AQ Entertainment was later formed and introduced the Chinese-Korean girl group Miss A.

Commercial fluctuations

In November 2011, the US-based subsidiary JYP Creative was established and it was reported that Park invested approximately US 1.2 million dollars in the branch. However, after a year of operation, the company reportedly saw a net loss of around US 1.5 million dollars by the end of 2012, forcing the CEO to liquidate the branch and close all US operations, including the New York branch.[22] The same year, Park Jimin, winner of the competitive TV series K-pop Star, and Baek Yerin, a female trainee and contestant on the show Star King, debuted as the duo 15&.[23]

In 2012, JYP Pictures signed a contract with China Eastern Performing Arts Group to co-produce a movie Hold Your Hand, featuring actors who belonged to JYP Entertainment.[24]

On June 20, 2013, the plan to merge the publicly listed JYP Entertainment (which houses artists such as 2PM, 2AM and Wonder Girls) and the non-listed JYP (which houses artists such as J. Y. Park, Sunmi, Park Ji-min, Baek Ye-rin and Lee Jung-jin) as a single company was announced.[25][26] The shareholders meeting regarding the merger was held on September 13. The result states that the merger has been approved, with the merger effective starting from October 17.[27] Thus, artists under the non-listed JYP will become part of the post-merger JYP Entertainment. In addition, Miss A and Baek A-yeon, who had been part of the now defunct AQ Entertainment—as the result of the merger, also joined JYP Entertainment.[28][29]

Season three K-pop Star winner Bernard Park signed a contract with JYP to start his solo career.[34] On December 17, 2014, it was reported that J.Y. Park sold JYP Entertainment's HQ building in Cheongdamdong, Seoul to Choi Ki Won, the sister of SK Group's chairman Choi Tae Won, for about $7 million, on the term that JYP Entertainment will still use the building for three years on rent.[35][36]

In 2015, the subsidiary Studio J was formed, debuting its first artist, G soul, on January 9.[39][40] Two groups were formed that year: the girl group Twice, whose members were chosen from the competitive reality show Sixteen,[41] and Day6.[42] In March 2015, 2AM members Seulong and Jinwoon departed from JYP Entertainment because of their contract expiration,[43] while Jo Kwon renewed his contract.[44] JYP Entertainment later signed a contract with Jax Coco, a Hong Kong-based coconut product company. JYPE and Jax Coco planned to launch coconut oil, coconut flakes, and other related products at major department stores and supermarkets in South Korea.
