The newest rookies to throw their hat into the ring is Fantagio’s Astro. The six member group had officially been given a debut date of February 23. With their first broadcast stage being on February 24 for M! Countdown.
Having already been active during their pre-debut days, SanHa, Jin Jin, MJ, Moon Bin, Rocky, and Eunwoo will be releasing their first mini album along with full scale promotions to follow.
Astro became more well known when they starred in the web drama ‘To Be Continued’ alongside Kim Sae Ron. From there they toured around South Korea meeting fans and building a solid foundation in their skills and fan base. Each fan meeting consisted of dance covers, vocal covers, and individual presentations to really set them apart from other idols.
In December, Fantagio took to KakaoTalk to raise even more awareness of their rookies’ upcoming debut as they let fans know that if Astro could get to 10,000 followers the boys would meet their fans every month through the ‘Meet U’ project. To date, the have meet with over 1,800 fans.
Astro adds to the anticipation of their debut with a new reality show ‘Astro OK!’ which had its first episode on January 21 through MBC Music. The group will also meet with 1,600 fans at the Children’s Park Wapop Hall in celebration of their debut on February 23.
This is such exciting news! I cannot wait to see what the boys concept will be for their debut, since they have such a diverse group and could pull off a variety of looks. Now to sit and wait for the teaser images and videos, which will be the hardest part because I am too hyped. Are you as excited as me for the news? We want to know!
