HYBE—the label behind K-pop superstars including BTS, TOMORROW X TOGETHER and SEVENTEEN—announced on Nov. 4 that they would be forming a brand new all-girl group in collaboration with U.S. record label Geffen Records, known for huge acts including Olivia Rodrigo, Mary J. Blige, and DJ Snake.

In the 45-second trailer, the two powerhouse labels announced that they will be holding a Global Girl Group Audition from Nov. 3 through Nov. 28, 2021. Any girl between the ages of 15 and 19 (16 and 19  for European residents) and has a knack for singing, dancing or rapping has the chance to join a band formed by two of the biggest record labels in pop music.

The new girl group will reportedly be based in Los Angeles and will be the first all-girl group from the U.S to be modeled on the world-famous K-pop training and development system. Those selected will train for months developing their music, performances, fashion and music videos before finally releasing music to the public.
