SEOUL -- JYP Entertainment, a leading South Korean entertainment agency, will team up with China's online giant Tencent to launch "BOYSTORY", a boy band formed by six teenagers, in China this year.

The agency said Monday that the new band would debut in China in September with the average age of members standing at 13. They will be managed by a joint management company co-operated by JYP's Chinese subsidiary and the online music streaming service wing of Tencent. BOYSTORY has been preparing for its debut for two years and pre-released two singles last year and one single in March this year.

JYP said BOYSTORY will be a real idol group different from other idol groups which are now active in China. A showcase would take place after its debut in September.  
JYP Entertainment, established by singer-songwriter Park Jin-young, also known as JYP, has artists such as TWICE, Suzy and 2PM.
