Pledis Entertainment and YUEHUA Entertainment, set to make the first joint venture between K-pop and Chinese music agencies, is revving up to show their first outcome next Monday.

NU’EST-M, K-pop group NU’EST’s Chinese specialized group, will make an official debut during two companies’ joint strategic press conference to be held in Beijing next Monday, Pledis said on Friday.

The new group, organized only to act in China, will be the six-member group including the five NU’EST members Aron, Ren, JR, Minhyun, Baekho and Chinese popular idol JASON.

NU’EST-M’s debut single will be “夢到你,” the Chinese version of NU’EST’s local title tune to the third mini-album “Sleep Talking,” rolled out late August.

“NU’EST-M is our first project after collaborating with YUEHUA. We are expected to mark a good start since the existing NU’EST members and JASON get along so well during the build-up to NU’EST-M,” an official with Pledis was quoted as saying.

The new group will begin their promotional activities in the whole area of China starting with next Monday press conference, which will mark Pledis full-fledged advance into the global market.
