AB6IX Explains How Promoting As Wanna One And MXM Helped Them
AB6IX shared how their experiences as members of Wanna One and MXM helped prepare them to stand on stage as a new group!
On May 22, AB6IX celebrated the release of their debut mini album “B:COMPLETE” with a showcase held at the Olympic Hall in Seoul.
AB6IX is a five-member group that includes former “Produce 101 Season 2” contestants Lim Young Min, Kim Dong Hyun, Park Woo Jin, and Lee Dae Hwi, as well as Jeon Woong. Park Woo Jin and Lee Dae Hwi promoted for a year and a half as members of Wanna One, while Lim Young Min and Kim Dong Hyun promoted as the duo MXM.
With regards to their new beginnings as part of AB6IX, Lim Young Min said, “It’s like I’m debuting all over again, but we’ve experienced a lot through Wanna One and MXM. Because of that, I’m less nervous on stage.”
He continued, “The way we see it, we’ve been working all this time to come together as a complete group, and we were able to stand on this stage because of it. Having our new member Woong with us makes us feel secure and gives us confidence in our performances.”
Lee Dae Hwi added, “Wanna One and MXM are like our alter egos. We received a lot of love and gained recognition through those promotions, so I think it will benefit our activities as AB6IX. They are a group that helps me not be nervous on stage, and I am grateful for that.”
The AB6IX members took part in producing, composing, and writing lyrics for all seven tracks on their debut mini album, and their performances and the creation of their album also involved their active participation.
Their title song “BREATHE” features a deep house sound, and the members sing about wanting to escape and be free of the pressures of society. It even includes messages of current societal issues like Korea’s fine dust. Lee Dae Hwi, who previously made songs for IZ*ONE, Yoon Ji Sung, and Park Ji Hoon, personally produced the track, and Lim Young Min and Park Woo Jin also co-wrote the lyrics.
