WJSN (Cosmic Girls)

WJSN debuted under Starship Entertainment in February with “Would You Like?” and title song “Mo Mo Mo.” They are coming back in January with a new album, “From.WJSN,” along with “I Wish.” Their song, “Secret,” is one of my favorite tracks from them, with a magical and mystical themes and a sound resonating with refined, lullaby-like qualities. They have an amazing aesthetic, music style, and many beautiful, talented members. As they develop their individual and group identities, they’re definitely a group to look out for!

Under YNB Entertainment, this five-member boy group debuted as its company’s first male idol group. With the group having an average height of 185 cm (6.1 ft), they have gained much attention not only for their tall stature, but also for their breath-taking debut with “KNOCK“. Aiming to ‘knock on k-pop’ as the name KNK implies, the boys have captured the hearts of fans with their harmonic voices and quirky personalities. Feel free to become a “tinkerbell” along many others through listening to their music and keeping up with their weekly livestreams!
