Full Profile of Cross Gene Members (Name, Height, Weight and Facts)


Meet The Multi-National Idol Group, CROSS GENE!

CROSS GENE (크로스진) originally is a six-member boy group based in South Korea signed under Amuse Korea Entertaiment. Now the group consists of five members : Shin, Sangmin, Yongseok, Seyoung, and Takuya. The original members, J.G. left the group in 2013 and it was revealed that Chinese member Casper also had left the group in August 2017.

Cross Gene is a multinational boyband whose concept is that they have members from China, Japan, and Korea that all represent different desirable “genes”. The entertainment company explained the meaning behind the group’s name, stating that the group would “cross the superior genes of each country to create one perfect group”. They’ve already debuted in both Korea and Japan in the hopes of being marketed as a truly international band versus just belonging to K-pop.

The group debuted on June 7, 2012, with “La-Di Da-Di” and appeared on reality show called ‘Cross BattLE’. On September 2017, it was announced that members Seyoung, Sangmin and Yongseok would be members of a new sub-unit, X HEARTS/CROSSHEARTS (크로스하츠).
