Notably, one of P NATION's chosen contestants to be in their lineup for their K-pop group was Tanaka Koki, a Japanese member born in 2009.

Tanaka Koki received a total of 48,387 votes. The 12-year-old impressed PSY with his ability to dance and rap. Netizens and fans were also in awe as he specializes in Krumping, something that always adds dancing prowess in a K-pop group.

As of writing this article, today on the 24th of January, P NATION released an official announcement stating that Tanaka Koki will no longer be debuting with P NATION's upcoming K-pop boy group as initially planned.

"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," P NATION's statement wrapped up. 

Notably, although Tanaka Koki will not debut with the upcoming K-pop boy group, he will remain as a trainee under P NATION. This will further hone Koki's skills as an artist and this shows that P NATION has future plans to debut more K-pop boy groups!
