New Korean boy band JBJ finally made their debut by releasing the album "Fantasy."
The temporary group, which will promote for seven months only, is composed of former contestants on the audition survival TV show "Produce 101" Season 2, which launched rookie boy band Wanna One.
JBJ's members are Takada Kenta, Kwon Hyun Bin, Kim Yongguk, Kim Sang Gyun, Kim Dong Han and Noh Tae Hyun.
During their album showcase, JBJ talked about their short promotion period and their experiences during "Produce 101."
"Since we're promoting for seven months, we only have one award ceremony [season]. So this year I want to receive an award, even if it's just a small one," said Japanese member Kenta.
According to Noh Tae Hyun, the next seven months is like an exam period during which they have to do well.
"There are many fans who are sad and say that seven months is a short time. I think of the next seven months, starting from October 18, as our exam period. I want to do the exam well and be by our fans' side for a longer time, even if it's short," he said. "Our resolution is to get a perfect score on this exam and be with our fans for the longest time possible.
Kim Dong Han's wish is "to win first place on a music show in the next seven months and sing our song as an encore together with our fans."
While JBJ members were not fortunate to be in the top 11 on "Produce 101," their group was created because of fans.
Model Kwon Hyun Bin recalled that "during 'Produce 101 Season 2,' I became really into singing and dancing. However, after the show ended, I got traumatized at the thought of not being able to do those things again."
But his goal to become a K-pop idol became a reality through JBJ, saying "But when I heard that we will debut as JBJ, my heart started beating quickly. I was happy that I had the potential to become a singer."
