SECHSKIES has been around for quite some time now. And with the release of their brand new album, it’s been emotional for all their fans. The fact that they went their separate ways and got back together to perform and make this new album is a miracle in the K-pop world to say the least. If you aren’t familiar with SECHSKIES or don’t know much about them, here are 10 reasons why you should become a fan of them.
(In no particular order).
1. They paved the way for a lot of K-pop idols today
SECHSKIES was one of the original K-pop boy groups back in the ’90s and is one of the groups that many idols look up to and respect today.

This hidden camera prank showed the close bond the members had with each other. After Kang Sung Hoon thought he was responsible for Eun Ji Won being hurt, he couldn’t help but fall to his knees. The other members got emotional over it, too!
