JBJ95 Announces Debut As A Permanent Duo This October
Kenta and Kim Sang Gyun – aka JBJ95 – are making their debut sooner than we expected!
The duo, who were previously members of Produce 101 Season 2‘s temporary project group JBJ, has announced that they will be debuting later this month!
Star Road Entertainment revealed on October 4, “It is true that JBJ95 will be debuting on the last week of October. Both members are working hard to showcase a good image”.
The two are currently in full swing for their debut preparations, with the contents for their promotions set to be released sequentially, according to a number of officials.
Besides these preparations, Kenta and Sang Gyun were also busy shooting the album jacket and filming the music video for their title track – which they had reportedly finished already. The two also launched their own social media accounts in September ahead of their debut.
Kenta and Sang Gyun used to be members of JBJ, a project group that emerged from the second season of Mnet’s Produce 101. The project group, which only held a temporary contract, had inevitably disbanded. However, Kenta and Sang Gyun chose to continue their activities, now as a (take note!) permanent duo.
Their name “JBJ95” was chosen from ideas submitted by fans themselves. They explained the “JBJ” in their name pays homage to their original group, and shows they haven’t forgotten their roots. Meanwhile, the “95” came from the fact that they were both born in 1995.
