BAE173’s Youngseo’s Pre-Debut Story
We have seen Youngseo’s profile and facts. But what about his pre-debut story? Where did he come from? Well, you must be curious about his background story. Just like any other idol, he also has a unique story before successfully debuting in BAE173.
Youngseo was born on June 13th, 2002, and raised in Changwon-si, Gyeongsangnam-do. Just so you know, it is quite far away from Seoul. There, he lived with his parents and a beautiful older sister who is four years older than him.
Youngseo’s love for music has been discovered since childhood. Even when he was little, he impressed a lot of people with his amazing voice. No wonder he got a chance to perform at a school event, singing a song titled “Love Never Felt So Good.”
And due to his unique vocal tone, Youngseo received a lot of attention.
Youngseo went to the TNS Academy in Changwon, then decided to move to Seoul after he got accepted in one of the K-pop agencies in Seoul.
Before he went to PocketDol Studio agency, he was a trainee of Source Music entertainment, the subsidiary company of Big Hit Entertainment, BTS’ agency.
But Youngseo’s fate didn’t want him to debut there. Instead, Youngseo moved to PocketDol Studio. There, he met Muzin, his fellow homie from Changwon, who happened to attend the same academy as him in his hometown, TNS Academy.
And that’s the end of Youngseo’s trainee journey. Because in PocketDol, he got the hope to be included in the upcoming boy group that will be debuted.
BAE173’s Youngseo’s Debut
On September 4th, 2020, PocketDol Studio, which is famous as the agency of Nam Dohyon and Lee Hangyul, announced that they will be re-debuting two of the former X1 members in a new group.
Just like GOT7 that has Jinyoung and JB who debuted with JJ Project way before their group made a debut, this upcoming boy group also has two members that had debuted as members of a duo before.
The group name hadn’t been shared yet, so let’s just call them PocketDolz at this time.
PocketDolz released a new member that will be included in the debuting group line-up every three days. The first member to be revealed was Nam Dohyon.
And our guy, Youngseo, was the third member to be revealed by PocketDol Studio.
Here is the teaser photo and video of Youngseo!
And the group name had been settled, it was revealed to be BAE173!
But their debut day still had a long way to go. Even after we learned the members and group name, we still had to wait for months until their actual debut date.
Finally, in November 2020, PocketDol Studio released a video of the first debut song of BAE173, “Crush on U”!
Let’s see the music video!
In this song, we can clearly see how perfect Youngseo’s voice with the music is. Even among nine members, Youngseo still shines brightly.
And not to mention their performing stages on music shows, it even makes Youngseo look cooler than usual!
