There has been a shift in the top 3 entertainment companies in Korea for 2020. Many incidents within the past year caused YG Entertainment to take a hit, giving Big Hit Entertainment a chance to take a spot alongside SM Entertainment and JYP Entertainment.
Let’s take a look at the plans each of the top 3 agencies have in store for 2020.
Most SM artists will continue to promote their activities into 2020 with various comebacks from groups, solos, units and more.
This year also marks a special year for BoA as it will be her 20th anniversary since debut.
There is also news of a new girl group that will release from SM Entertainment. If this happens, this will be the first girl group to debut under SM since Red Velvet.

Big Hit Entertainment
It’s going to be another busy year for Big Hit as BTS will be making their long-awaited comeback this February. With their strong fan base, it can be for certain that this comeback will be nothing short of legendary.
Big Hit’s rookie boy group TXT will also be continuing their promotions as their fandom increases in Korea and overseas.

Big Hit is also in preparation to release a drama based on the story of BTS sometime later this year.
“In addition to Map of the Soul: 7, a BTS-based TV drama is scheduled for release sometime in the second half of 2020. It’s set to tell how V, Jungkook, Jimin, Jin, Suga, RM and J-hope first met.”
