Japanese idol trainee Tanaka Koki, who appeared in the survival program “LOUD,” will not be making his debut with P NATION’s first and upcoming boy group.
On January 24, P NATION officially announced that the Japanese member will sit out from the initially planned debut preparations. Instead, Tanaka Koki will be training under the agency.
Back in September of 2021, labels P NATION and JYP Entertainment, via LOUD, chose the final lineups for their idol boy groups. Tanaka Koki, born in 2009, was originally included in the lineup by P NATION.
The statement clarifies, “After much deliberation, Koki himself, his parents, and P NATION have collectively agreed that it would be in Koki’s best interests to pursue further training before making his official debut.”
