JYP Entertainment recently announced the official debut plans for their first Chinese boy group, called BOY STORY.
BOY STORY is a collaborative group between JYP China and the Chinese label called TME (Tencent Music Entertainment), and the first JYP boy group to only have Chinese members.
BOY STORY has already been preparing for their official debut through five pre-debut singles that they’ve released over the past year. Each of their singles were produced by Park Jin Young.
BOY STORY released their 1st single “HOW OLD R U” on September 1, 2017, “Can’t Stop” on December 15, and “JUMP UP” on March 30, 2018. They have one last pre-debut single set to drop on June 12, titled “Handz UP”.
The group will be holding their official debut this September in China.
BOY STORY is comprised of six Chinese members, Han Yu, Zi Hao, Xin Long, Ze Yu, Ming Rui, and Shu Yang. The surprising part about the members is that their average age is less than 13-years-old!
