Girl’s Day younger brother group, MAP6, debuted earlier this year in November. They made a huge impact as they transformed from their previous cute image to this much edgier image, which set them apart from many other groups. Now, they are going to be taking that vibe and bringing it to Japan in January of 2016.
MinHyuk, YeongJoon, ByungSeon, and JongBin were with New Planet Entertainment as members with A-Prince, which was known for their adorable boyfriend persona. After 15 months promoting as that group, they had signed with Dream Tea Entertainment (formerly DreamT Entertainment). The members wanted to do a complete turnaround with their image, so after months of training, they created a new sound, improved on their dancing, and went from the boyfriend to the bad boy. They even changed their stage names to Minhyuk, J.Jun, Sun, and J.Vin. ChangYong did not join the transition and so the fifth member is newcomer KiHo known as Sign.
According to DreamTea, the five member group will be releasing a Japanese version of their debut single album ‘Storm’ which had the title track by the same name along with the instrumental of the song and ‘휘파람 (Whistling)’. Already 6,000 copies have been pre-ordered, so the company is feeling confident on a good debut. MAP6 be promoting in Japan from January 9 and 25. Their showcase will take place in Tokyo, and they will be also promoting in both Tokyo and Osaka.
