Who are WINNER?
The members of WINNER were chosen in the talent reality show WIN: Who is next ? where 11 young people participated. The theme of the show was to divide them into two groups so that they can compete against each other: Team A (Kang Seung Yoon, Lee Seung Hoon, Kim Jin Woo, Nam Tae Hyun, and Song Min Ho.) And Team B (BI, Bobby, Kim Jin Hwan, Kim Dong Hyuk, Koo Jun Hoe, and Song Yun Hyeong).
The winners were team A and months later the trainees officially debuted as members of WINNER.
The first song they released was “ Empty, ” whose popularity surpassed expectations and placed them at the top of the MelOn, Mnet, Genie, Olleh Music, Soribada, Monkey3, Bugs Music, Daum Music, and Naver Music charts.
