Meet 24K, The Boy Band Under Choeun Entertainment

24K is a boy band that has been formed by Choeun Entertainment back in 2012. The first meaning of their band name at the time of their debut was “2 dancing machines and 4 main vocals,” but later it changed to “like gold, to shine forever.” The group went through many transformations throughout the years until finally, it continued as a seven-member band. However, currently, the band is active as a six-member band due to one of its members, Ki-su, being on a hiatus because of his obligatory military duty. The band also had a subunit called 4K, which consists of Cory, Ki-su, Sung-oh, and Seok-june as its members.

Upon debut, 24K has made music in various genres. When you listen to their EP Hurry Up, you can notice that the record contains various genres on its tracks, such as pop, trance, dubstep, and industrial. Meanwhile, in their second EP U R So Cute, there are elements of hip-hop and electronic sounds that have been incorporated into the tracks.
