N-Train (Korean: 엔트레인) was a South Korean boy band, signed under MediaLine Entertainment. The group consisted of five members: Jung Jung Kyun, Jung Seung Hyun, Lee Jong Min, Song Yu Jin and Kim Sang Woo.[1][2][3]

History[edit]

Prior to debut, N-Train trained with their agency for three years.[4] In hopes to break the idol group image of recording dance-type music, MediaLine Entertainment directed their attention in recording R&B and soul-oriented music instead.[5]

N-Train debuted with a mid-tempo ballad song, "울면서 울어 (One Last Cry)", on May 27, 2011.[6] In one of their music reviews, a staff writer from Allkpop complimented their debut single, noting that "N-Train will find most of their appeal is surprisingly through their singing, because boy is it good." The writer compared Jung Jung Kyun vocal ability to TVXQ's Max.[7]
