IN2IT’s Inho’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 level in all aspects would make their debut in the final group.
In the big 7 selection, there were 49 participants and they were divided into 7 units and each unit was filled with 7 participants. In the final chapter, there were 28 participants remaining 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.
Inho stole the show ever since the audition with his clear and stable voices. He also successfully passed the Boys24 early stages and became a member of both Unit Black and Unit White.
Unit Black was the first promotional unit of Boys24 that was formed in 2017 consisting of Inho along with members Park Doha, Oh Jin-seok, Kim Sung-hyun, Jung Yeontae, Han Hyun-uk, 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 White consisted of Inho along with members Park Do-ha, Lee Lo-uoon, Isaac Voo, Oh Jin-seok, Go Ji-hyeong, and Kang San. The group performed mostly cheerful and light songs on the show, which was symbolized by the name White.
Inho has a strong vote and fanbase ever since the beginning. After competing in a total of 260 concerts, he was selected to debut in the final line-up during The Final round, along with the other 7 members Jeong Yeon-tae, Yoo Youngdoo, Han Hyunuk, Isaac Voo, Lee In-pyo, Kim Jin-sub, and Kim Su-hyun. He finished in #1 after accumulating a total of 71.90 points.
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, Inho filled the position of the main vocalist.
