The band MYNAME was formed in 2011, they started in october 2011 with the single „Message“. It seems that from the beginning the answer from the fans and the medias were not that good. But it’s in Japan, that they first started to get their success, spreading a bit their success in Korea, they now also have a good fan base in their own country. Even though, their success is way more important in Japan. That’s why they did their first concert there and recently did one in Seoul. At Japako Music, we really think they are talented. They have good songs and good choreographies. Hopefully, their talent will be recognized internationally someday and we hope to be of some help for that.
There are 5 members. The leader is Gunwoo, he is also the main vocalist of the band. He has a lot of charisma and can sing very well. He is not the oldest but the position of leader suits him well, because he seems to have maturity and leadership. Seyong is one of the two rappers in the band, he is quite funny and very excited. He can rap and dance very well. He seems to talk a lot as he can make very huge speeches. The other rapper is JunQ, he is still young and a bit shy, he doesn’t talk that much, but it’s giving him some cuteness. And then when he starts rapping, it seems that all the shyness disappears and he becomes a really good rapper with a lot of charisma. Insoo is also a main vocalist and can dance very well, he is the oldest in the band. He is handsome, he has a nice voice and a nice body, we have to say. The last member is the youngest, Chaejin is the sub vocalist, he is also a bit shy, probably because of his young age. But as the visual, he has some presence and he is very cute.
After releasing their first song „Message“ in october 2011. They released their first single in May 2012 with the hit song „Hello & goodbye“ which is a mid tempo ballad. With this song, they have made a better impression for sure. A bit after they went to Japan, releasing the same title in Japanese. With their second single released in January 2013 with the hit song „Just that little thing“, we see an evolution, a very great one we must say. We really hope they will keep on using their potential that way and keep on improving themselves because we really enjoy listening to them.
Finally, we hope they will get recognized in Europe and they will come one day to meet their European fans. Japako Music will do its best to promote them around the world. So check them out and give them your support, they really deserve it!
