The South Korean music industry always give their new colors. Almost every year, they always introduce new groups that ready to compete in the entertainment world. As in previous years, in 2020, there were many newcomers.
This year many K-pop boy band groups made their debut in this industry. Rookies are ready to compete with their singing and dancing talents. South Korean entertainment always gives some surprises; it is because newcomers come with a different concept. Each k-pop groups 2020 has a new image, new charm, and has a good identity.
5 Korean Groups 2020
The first Korean group in 2020 is DKB. They came from South Korea and debuted on February 3, 2020, with a mini-album titled YOUTH and the main song Sorry Mama. Under the care of Brave Entertainment, DKB is the first boy group to debut at the agency after seven years.
The name DKB is an abbreviation of Dark Brown Eyes, which means 9 Asian boys will reach out to the world. They also got awarded the New K-Wave Next Artist Awards at the Soribada Awards. They call their fans by the name BB which means DKB’s Bestie or Friends of DKB.
Ten Oriented Orchestra or TOO is a new South Korean boy group formed from the survival program Mnet WORLD KLASS under the agency N.CH Entertainment. World Klass itself is an event to create global idols that combine Korean and non-Korean artists.
Unfortunately, all the participants who made it through came from South Korea; 5 non-Korean citizens did not make it through to the final TOO lineup. This new group consists of 10 members, namely Jerome, Chan, J. You, Woonggi, Donggeon, Jisu, Jaeyun, Minsu, Chihoon, and Kyungho.
Initially, TOO’s debut was March 18, 2020, but it got delayed until April 1, 2020, with a mini-album titled ‘REASON FOR BEING: 仁 (Benevolence).’ A global idol project was 20 international trainees compete to become ten members, and N.CH Entertainment will manage the Korean groups 2020 as Stone Music Entertainment will produce and market the final line up. However, the Kpop groups 2020 is always giving thier best songs and choreographies.
At the beginning of the year, K-Pop lovers were shocked by the appearance of a new boy group decorated with beautiful visuals and sound quality. The boy group called MCND is a group consisting of 5 members. The five members of this boy group still have an average age of under 20 years. MCND itself is a boy group formed by TOP media.
MCND is an acronym for Music Creates a New Dream. This boy group debuted on February 27, 2020. But previously, on January 2, 2020, Korean groups 2020 released their pre-debut single, entitled TOP Gang. Although it is known as a boy group consisting of young people who are mostly high school students, their ability is undoubtedly an idol. MCND has five members like Castle J, Minjae, BIC, Huijun, and Win.
CRAVITY is one of the Korean groups 2020 that made a debut on April 14, 2020, under Starship Entertainment. The name CRAVITY is an acronym for “Center of Gravity” and a combination of the words “Creativity” and “Gravity,” which will bring you into their world full of charm and uniqueness.
This boy band’s debut is undoubtedly highly anticipated because fans may already be familiar with the 4 CRAVITY members. They had participated in the Mnet Produce X 101 survival event in 2019, namely Hyeongjun, Minhee, Jungmo, and Wonjin. Previously, two of its members, Hyeongjun and Minhee, made their debut with X1, but the Produce X 101 dropout group disbanded and finally joined CRAVITY.
On February 13, 2020, Starship Entertainment announced that they would debut new k-pop groups 2020 with Song Hyeongjun and Kang Minhee. Then on March 15, it was announced by Starship Entertainment that the official SNS and the group name was CRAVITY, with the first three members getting introduced to the public, Serim, Allen, Jungmo. Eventually, on March 17, the management just introduced Woobin, Wonjin, and Minhee to the public, followed by Hyeongjun, Taeyoung, and Seongmin on March 18.
One of my favourite groups and probably one of the best K-pop groups in 2020, ENHYPEN, was training for a while. A group full of youngsters first came with their song Given-Taken; the group abbreviation gets written as “EN-.” The group has seven members: Jay, Jake, Park Sung-Hoon, Sunoo, Jungwon, Heeseung, and Ni-Ki.
The group is associated with the BeLift and Big Hit Entertainment.
The group started in 2019 as pre-debut, but their main debut was on November 30 when they released the song Given-Taken. Even before that lead song got out, their album sold over 300k copies till 21 November. The kpop group ENHYPEN is, without a doubt, one of the best Korean groups in 2020.
