On December 27, 2002, the company's first boy group was a four-member vocal oriented group Noel, but they failed to attract popularity. JYP turned its focus to the duo brothers "One Two" in 2003 and in 2004, after the boy band g.o.d.'s group contract with Sidus HQ ended, they signed a contract with JYP Entertainment.
Mainstream success of its second generation artists
In May 2006, JYP formed its first girl group, Wonder Girls, who became a commercial success and was the first South Korean group to enter the Billboard Hot 100 in 2009 when their song "Nobody" charted at No. 76. Their success lead to a management deal with the Jonas Group, which allowed the Wonder Girls to open the Jonas Brothers's world tour in select cities.
