UP10TION’s Kuhn Before Debut
Kuhn, as you may already know from his profile, was born with the name No Soo-il. In an interview, Kuhn revealed that his real name Soo means excellent, and Il means one. So it means that Soo-il is the excellent one. Just like Kuhn, or No Soo-il we know that he really is excellent!
Kuhn was born on November 11th, 1995. Kuhn lived with his parents and he’s the only child in his family. Glad that he has nine members to be his brothers now in Seoul.
Actually, Kuhn was from Ansan City, Gyeonggi-do. Kuhn spent his childhood to his teenage years there. Kuhn probably had never imagined being an idol before. Instead, he planned to attend a college majoring in the Hotel Management Administration department. Even though he hated studying during vacation.
Until one day, Kuhn’s junior from the dance club that he attended asked him to cheer on them for an audition that they participated in. Kuhn agreed and went there, but ended up being cast in the audition. Kuhn didn’t expect that but he’d like to give it a try since he was interested in music and dance too. So, Kuhn tried out the audition and passed it.
Since then, Kuhn moved to Seoul and became a trainee there. Kuhn became the sixth member to join the group that later became known as UP10TION.
UP10TION’s Kuhn’s Debut
Kuhn’s journey to becoming an idol was probably quite surprising. Well, he hadn’t set a goal to be an idol but he ended up becoming one. That just shows how amazing Kuhn is. Even though he didn’t prepare years before he became a trainee, Kuhn was already into dancing and singing as he had joined a dance club in his school. So, his dancing skills are not something to worry about.
Kuhn lives the life of a trainee for years until the other members and himself are ready to debut. In 2015, the agency that he was in, TOP Media (the same agency as Teen Top) made an announcement about the debut of their upcoming boy group. The group’s name is UP10TION. The number 10 in the group’s name refers to the number of members of the group, who are Jinhoo, Kuhn, Kogyeol, Jinhyuk, Bit-to, Wooseok, Sunyoul, Hwanhee, Gyujin, and Xiao.
As we already know that Kuhn’s real name is No Soo-il, he didn’t go by Soo-il for his stage name. Instead, he used Kuhn which means “land” in Chinese characters. This means that Kuhn can be the ground that holds creatures. Just like Kuhn’s role in the group, as the vice leader whom the other members can lean on.
UP10TION made their official debut by releasing a song titled “So Dangerous” on September 10th, 2015. Let’s check out the music video of “So Dangerous”. Just like the title, the song is really dangerous!
And now, it’s time to see the dance practice of “So Dangerous” so we can focus better on their dancing skills. It seems that all 10 members of UP10TION are really amazing dancers!
What do you think about UP10TION’s debut era? Their debut song is really amazing, right? Just as dangerous as their name, they are all so appealing from day one!
