The Nation’s Big 3 labels recently gave insight into their road map for the future in 2017.  SM Entertainment, YG Entertainment, and JYP Entertainment gave XSports News an inside line into what fans can expect in 2017. 

SM Entertainment is a South Korean entertainment company established in 1995 by Lee Soo-man. It is currently one of the largest entertainment companies in South Korea. The company operates as a record label, talent agency, music production company, event management and concert production company, and music publishing house.

TVXQ and many members of Super Junior will be finishing up their mandatory military services, restoring the 'golden lineup' of the two popular groups. NCT will also be busy this year, staring with promotions with NCT 127. On top of that, S.E.S, a legendary girl group from the 90s, will also be making a comeback. EXO, who has had yet another successful year, will have an exciting year as well. There are no plans for additional debuts except for NCT. 

YG Entertainment is a South Korean entertainment company established in 1996 by Yang Hyun-suk. The company operates as a record label, talent agency, music production company, event management and concert production company, and music publishing house. In addition, the company currently also operates a number of subsidiary ventures, including a clothing line, a golf management agency, and a cosmetics brand. It is currently one of the largest entertainment companies in South Korea.

Big Bang will not be promoting as a whole for a while as T.O.P will be joining the military in February. However, starting with January 3 and Akdong Musician's comeback, YG artists will be consistently on stage in Korea. Sechskies will be releasing new music in both January and in April, and they will be holding an encore concert. WINNER, iKON, and Black Pink will be making comebacks as well. Psy, Epik High, and other artists are also continuing to work on new music.

JYP Entertainment is a South Korean entertainment company established by Park Jin-young in 1997. The company operates as a record label, talent agency, music production company, event management and concert production company, and music publishing house. It is currently one of the largest entertainment companies in South Korea.

Miss A's Suzy will be the first to kick off the year with her solo debut in January. The 2PM members will be making individual as well as group promotions on various projects until some of the members begin their military service. Artist-line -- Baek Ah Yeon, 15&, and other musicians -- will also continue to be on stage. One of their biggest goals is to grow DAY6. There are no plans to debut any new groups.
