After finding success with Wonder Girls, miss A, and TWICE, JYP Entertainment is now preparing to open auditions for their next girl group.

According to Naver, auditions will start at JYP's training center in Seoul on August 13th. The agency is looking for potential trainees born between 1993 and 2006. The upcoming girl group will be JYP's first since TWICE debuted in 2015 with "Like Ooh Ahh."

In even more exciting news, Korean media outlet Hankyung has revealed that JYP is also planning to debut a new boy group in June, 2018. This will be the agency's fourth active male group after 2PM, GOT7, and DAY6.

Until then, JYP is currently focused on establishing TWICE and GOT7's fame in Japan. GOT7 will hold a Japanese arena tour later this year, and TWICE will follow with one of their own in 2018.

Having said that, it does help that 3 TWICE members are Japanese!

To be fair, we would react the same way if we were given TWICE swag (but with much less cuteness).
