IN2IT’s Hyunuk’s Career journey in Boys24
Before debuting in IN2IT (인투 잇), Jiahn, alongside other twenty-four trainees were part of the Mnet survival show and CJ E&M’s pre-debut project group, Boys24. The survival program aired from June 18th, 2016 to August 6th, 2016 on Mnet for a total of 8 episodes.
A total of 25 billion won ($20.6 million) were invested by CJ E&M Entertainment in the project group to perform throughout the year at a permanent venue. CJ E&M had named the boy band and the project name Boys24, and they aired the whole process from selecting members to performing in front of audiences through Mnet’s channel. Out of the 5500 applicants, only 49 were selected and passed the audition. There were four stages in the audition: excavation, competition, growth, and evolution. After that, among the 24 people that made the cut, a few select members who had the highest levels in all aspects would make their debut in the final group line-up.
In the big 7 selection, there were 49 participants and they were divided into 7 units and each unit was filled by 7 participants. In the final chapter, there were 28 participants remaining and divided into 4 units: white unit, yellow unit, green unit, and sky unit. Even after the event ended, this event never made a debut with the final members.
In the show, Hyunuk is known to be the ‘engineering student’ oppa due to his occupation prior to joining Boys24. With his deep voice, he managed to amaze the room and pass the audition. In the show, he also joined the two subunits Unit Red and Unit Black.
Unit Black was the first promotional unit of Boys24 that was formed in 2017 consisting of Hyunuk along with members Park Doha, Oh Jin-seok, Kim Sung-hyun, Jung Yeontae, Hwang In-ho, and Yoo Youngdoo. They first debuted on the Mnet M! Countdown stage on April 11th, 2017, performing the song “Steal Your Heart” from their first single album of the same title.
Meanwhile, Unit Red consisted of Hyunuk along with members Tak Jin-kyu, Jin Sung-ho, Choe Chan-i, Lee Hae-joon, Kim Hong-in, and Park Yong-kwon. The group was known to be performing cool hip songs from Korean boy groups. And they were all blessed with stunning visuals!
Hyunuk is known to have a jjang visual, along with deep vocal skills, and good rap flow. After competing in a total of 260 concerts, he was selected to debut in the final line-up of the group with the other 7 members Jeong Yeon-tae, Yoo Youngdoo, Hwang Inho, Isaac Voo, Lee In-pyo, Kim Jin-sub, and Kim Su-hyun. He finished #9 at the show with a total of 38.44 points and was chosen as a wildcard member by the staff to join IN2IT.
On September 9th, 2017, Boys24 finally set the permanent group name, IN2IT (인투 잇). The name IN2IT is taken from the words ‘Intuition’ and ‘Into It’ and they officially debuted on October 26th, 2017, by releasing their first mini-album titled Carpe Diem. On the same day, IN2IT promoted their debut song “Amazing” on the Mnet M! Countdown stage.
In the group, Hyunuk holds the three positions that are visual, vocalist, and rapper.
