IMFACT’s Jeup’s Appearance In The Unit
In 2017, a year after IMFACT’s debut, things were working out quite well when they created a project called IMFACTORY, held a mini fan meeting and a mini-concert, as well as released several digital singles like “In the Club,” “Please Be My First Love,” and “Tension Up.” Although the group hadn’t met a big mainstream success, their schedules were quite full for the year.
And that’s why it kinda surprised the public when it was revealed that the members of IMFACT were taking part in a survival program called The Unit that aired on KBS2 in September that year. The program itself was intended for groups or solo artists who have debuted but have not received the spotlight from the public. Four of the five members of IMFACT, namely Jian, Jeup, Taeho, and Ungjae decided to appear in The Unit and they all passed the auditions. Aside from IMFACT, many idol groups that are also not really well known to the public also appeared in the show such as Big Star, Brave Girls, LABOUM, Dal Shabet, and others.
The group’s stable voices and synchronized dance moves wowed the judges at the audition and the judges decided to pass all of them.
In the show, Jeup’s smooth voice stole the judges’ and audiences’ attention as his rank rose and soared. He even got complimented and a thumbs up by the mentor Hwang Chi-yul for his stable voice.
In the position battle in episodes 13 and 14, he showcased his singing talent and wowed the other contestants although, in the end, he didn’t get a high enough position and only got 65 scores.
But he won the position of the main vocalist in the early episodes of the show.
He managed to hang in the show, but eventually, was eliminated at rank 11. Unfortunately, he didn’t get to debut with the show’s project group final line-up. But even though he didn’t win, he is still remembered as one of the most talented vocalists on the show and on the K-pop scene.

Since then, the two of them often show off their bromance in front of the camera. Often, Jian can be seen showing his attentive side to Jeup such as feeding him. Jeup is also very clingy to Jian and they even are not afraid to showcase some skinship such as kissing on the cheek and holding hands.
