Currently known as Brand New Boys, Lee Daehwi, Park Woo Jin, Lim Young Min, and Kim Dong Hyun will be making their official debut with the group name AB6IX, which was revealed by Brand New Music on March 29.

Their agency had also confirmed that the group will have five members in total, which means there is one member joining the crew who is still yet to be revealed.

This brings in the meaning behind the “six” in the group’s name – which signifies the five members plus the fans, who represents the sixth member of the group.

Meanwhile, another brand identity of AB6IX is “transcendental combination of five members and the fandom to open new horizons of Brand New Music”, as revealed by the agency.

“Completeness, transcendence, growth, and authenticity” are the keywords which express, according to the agency, the identity of the group.
