KBS’s “The Unit” has announced the leaders and names for Unit B and Unit G!
Ahead of this week’s special episode, the idol rebooting program asked fans to submit ideas and vote on the final group names. The choices for the final male group name included UNIT B, Unison, UNB, B.ONE, Uni.K, and My Turn, and the six choices for the female group name included UNIT G, Unity, U.N.G, G.ONE, Uni.on, The Shine, and UNI.
On the February 24 broadcast, the name of the male project group was announced as UNB and the female project group’s as UNI.T (from Unity).
The members also gathered to choose one leader for each group. Yang Jiwon, Yoonjo, Euijin, and Woohee appealed to their fellow members to try and earn their votes. Members said, “Woohee has low endurance, so we often saw her lying on the floor,” and poked fun at her frowning. She replied, “I will exercise and look in the mirror to fix my frowning,” and showed determination. In the end, Woohee was chosen as the leader of UNI.T.
Male members took Feeldog’s experience as the current leader of BIGSTAR into consideration and chose him as the leader of UNB.
The final members also visited the city of Pohang to volunteer, wash dishes, and give out food to the victims of the earthquake. It was previously reported that “The Unit” finalists donated PyeongChang Olympics parkas to the earthquake victims.
UNB and UNI.T will hold fan meetings on March 3 at Blue Square iMarket Hall. Watch the latest episode of “The Unit” now!
