He started as a child actor, starred in many productions and even received awards but his urge for dancing and singing made him decide to take another path.
You can now add one more idol into your list of idol B-boy dancers. Charming Jae Youn (dance, vocals) started B-boying when he was in middle school but due to the nature of the dance his parents convinced him to consider another career.

It seems that 2AM’s Jokwon and Infinite’s Sungjong found their new counterpart in this group. Min Yeong (vocals) is celebrated for his funny portrayals of female roles and girl group dance steps. Not only that, he is also a gifted musician. He majors music in a university and also plays piano.

The new main voice of the group, Tae Sung (lead vocals) was already an actor even before his debut as an idol singer. He already appeared in some TV dramas and music videos. Just like most young aspiring artists in Korea he also used to perform with an indie band in Hongdae.
The youngest member of the group, Black (vocals) is only 17 years old. According to a representative of Yeil Entertainment, Black as a trainee displays a huge potential as an artist. Not only that he’s talented, his passion and perseverance in achieving his dream is also remarkable. He also received many awards in several dance competitions before his debut.
