Debut With UNIQ
Before participating in Mnet’s idol survival show Produce X 101, Seung Youn had actually debuted before with UNIQ, in 2014. With a total of five members, he was in charge as the main rapper and vocalist of the group.
In 2015, UNIQ released so much content for the fans, such as new album, music, appearances in some variety shows, and a lot more. But sadly in 2018, the members started to do solo activities more than the group itself. There is also no confirmation, whether UNIQ has officially disbanded or not. And now let’s see Seung Youn’s promotional activities!
