Boygroup: Day6

Day6 (데이식스)  started as a 6 man boyband that actually played their own instruments, basically mixing the idol and indie styles together. This was very well received by fans, so well even that they went on a North American tour last October. We’re hoping hard that soon enough they will do their European tour aswell. Their vocals and music is great but of course they’re also super handsome, All girls can’t help but fall for those smooth vocals and pretty faces…but they’re much more than that! 

Who are they?
JYP Entertainment (JYPE) initially announced to debut a five-member group called 5Live, composed of Sungjin, Jae, Young K, Junhyeok, and Wonpil. The group began promotions as 5Live in 2014, appearing on the fourth episode of Mnet’s reality-survival program Who is Next: Win and releasing a song titled “Lovely Girl” as part of the original soundtrack of 2013 TV series Bel Ami. In mid-2015, drummer Dowoon was added and rename the group as Day6.

Day6 released their debut extended play (EP), The Day, with the lead single “Congratulations” on September 7, 2015. On February 27, 2016, JYPE stated that Junhyeok had left the band due to personal reasons and terminated his contract with the company. Day6 continued as a five-member band and released their second EP, Daydream, with the title track “Letting Go” on March 30.

The members consist of Sung Jin, Jae, Young K, Jun Hyeok, Won Pil and Do Woon. They made their official debut with their first mini-album The Day on September 7th 2015. On February 28th, it was revealed that member Junhyeok has departed from the group due to personal reasons, thus leaving DAY6 to a five member band. The group held their debut stage on March 31st, 2016 on Mnet’s M! Countdown with the title track Letting Go from their second mini album DAYDREAM.

How they started
I personally always think it’s hard to find information like this about korean groups but I gathered up some information. Most of day6/5live were trainees, scouted or joined as a trainee under JYP Entertainment. All of them play their own instruments and write their own songs. They all enroled differently, Jae lived in America (after being born in Argentina) and opened up a YouTube channel on which he posted various covers before auditioning for Survival Audition Kpop stars, in which he ended in 6th place. Young K lived in Canada before auditioning aswell, Sungjin ( and Sandeul of B1A4) came into their labels by joining a tv show Star King where they were also scouted (Sandeul under another label). they all went around roughly 5 years before fully forming 5live/Day6.

They didn’t promote them the normal way, which is in performing on all popular kpop idol shows but instead they took their unique music to clubs around Seoul and played in the street to promote their first album.

After being forced/leaving Day6 for contract issues we’ve seen Junhyuk join Be-Blossom as a vocalist and keyboardist in 2016 and they released their last album in the beginning of 2017 but ever since it’s been rather quiet with the band. Their Facebook and twitter hasn’t been updated since March and Junhyeok’s instagram has been set to private.
But we wish him all the luck in his life!
