AB6IX recently made their long-awaited debut with “BREATHE”, and the members opened up about how their previous groups prepared them for their official debut.
Lee Daehwi and Park Woojin were both members of the popular group Wanna One, where they promoted for 2 years after winning a spot in the group through Produce 101 Season 2.
Lim Youngmin and Kim Donghyun also promoted as a duo called MXM around the same time as Wanna One.
Now the four members and a new face named Jeonwoong gathered for their official debut with AB6IX. During their showcase, Daehwi looked back on their time with Wanna One and MXM as a large help to their future career.
He explained that through the two project groups, they were able to start off with a large fanbase and the experience required to be comfortable on stage.
Wanna One and MXM are a part of us. We were able to receive a lot of love while promoting with the group, and it’s been a big help for this promotion.
It made us become comfortable with the public and helped us to not be nervous on stage.
— Lee Daehwi
Just as Daehwi explained, AB6IX made a stellar performance debut and will surely be soaring high throughout their career just as they did with Wanna One and MXM!
