Before debuting as AB6IX, leader Young Min and vocalist Dong Hyun promoted as a duo called MXM after winning a lot of fans’ hearts during their stint as Produce 101 Season 2 trainees.

Meanwhile, members Woo Jin and Daehwi used to be a part of the project group Wanna One after being one of the eleven winners of the same show.

Now, they finally stood together as five including their new member Jeon Woong for the first time in their debut showcase, held at the Olympic Hall in Seoul’s Olympic Park.
