AB6IX’s Kim Dong-hyun: Profile, Pre-debut, Twins

AB6IX’s Kim Donghyun in MXM with Im Youngmin

Donghyun’s journey to be an idol was quite hard. He was close to debuting in WANNA ONE, but he finished at rank #28 instead and was eliminated in episode 10. But, people liked him already, and his company didn’t want to disappoint. So, Donghyun and Youngmin, both of whom gained attention from joining Produce 101 Season 2, formed a duo called MXM.


They made a debut after Produce 101 Season 2 finished. The first single was released on September 6, 2017. Let’s see the first music video of Donghyun and Youngmin, MXM, with the song called “I’m the One!”

The chemistry between Youngmin and Donghyun is just undeniable. The two of them look like a pair of twins!

AB6IX’s Kim Donghyun’s Debut with AB6IX

Brand New Music was doing so well in treating their fans. They knew that the fans had fallen in love with Donghyun and Youngmin, so they made a debut for them as a duo. And, after Woojin and Daehwi finished their promotion with WANNA ONE, which ended in January 2019, they debuted a new group for them.

However, it was not only the four Brand New Music boys from Produce 101 Season 2. They added a new member, Jeon Woong or Woong, as the fifth and oldest member. The group name is AB6IX, AB meaning “absolute” or “above brand new” while the number 6 means the number of the members, five, plus one to represent the fandom.

AB6IX released their first single titled “Breathe” on May 22, 2019. Let’s see the music video of “Breathe!”

The song is really easy to listen to, right? Not to mention, the dance is so powerful. All five members of AB6IX were really great as rookies. Well, they have been training for years. It is no wonder they did great.

So, now, it’s time to see the dance practice for “Breathe” from AB6IX!

The debut era of AB6IX was memorable. However, it is so sad knowing that Youngmin isn’t a part of the group anymore. He left the group after being involved in a drunk driving scandal. Hopefully, we can see the chemistry between Youngmin and Donghyun again soon!

AB6IX’s Kim Donghyun’s Performances on Stage

AB6IX debuted with a totally lit song. But, their journey doesn’t stop there, of course. AB6IX released much more cool songs months after they debuted.

So, it’s time to see the performances of AB6IX on music shows!

AB6IX’s Kim Donghyun’s Twin Brother

One of the things that fans should know about Donghyun is that he has a twin brother named Taehyun. Donghyun and Taehyun are fraternal twins, which means their looks are not really the same as identical twins.


Donghyun also said that his brother and he have opposite personalities. If Donghyun is an extrovert, his twin brother is an introvert. It’s always Donghyun starting the conversations first while his twin brother usually asks to stop while they are chatting.


However, both Donghyun and Taehyun have a couple ring given by their parents as a present for their 20th birthday. It’s a ring to symbolize that they are now adults. Donghyun said that he has never taken it off from his finger. What a sweet brother he is!


What do you think about Donghyun and his twin’s relationship? Both are cute and lovable, right?

AB6IX’s Kim Donghyun’s Hairstyles
