KNK (Hangul크나큰; RRKeunakeun; lit. "great" or "to be great") is a five-member South Korean boy group under YNB Entertainment, the company's first male idol group.[2] KNK is an initialism which stands for K-pop kNocK. It means "to knock on the door of K-pop with their music." They held their debut showcase on February 29, 2016 and officially released their debut single album titled Knock on March 3, 2016.[3]

History[edit]

Pre-debut[edit]

All five members of KNK were trainees of different companies before joining YNB Entertainment. They had a long training period, with an average of 5 years.[4][5] As trainees, the members appeared in music videos of their label mate, Bestie. They also performed as backup dancers for the girl group.[6][7][8]

On December 15, 2015, a teaser video of the boys was uploaded on KNK's official YouTube channel.[9] The following day, it was revealed that the group would perform at 2015 SBS Awards Festival (SAF) alongside Noel, Bestie and Almeng. On December 26, KNK performed for the first time to the public at SAF where they performed the two songs on their debut single album. On December 30, the band's first reality show, My Keunakeun Television, premiered on Naver TV Cast.[2]

YNB Entertainment opened their official Naver V app channel for the company's artists, including KNK, on January 8, 2016.[10] Beginning on the first day of February, KNK had real-time broadcasts for almost every day via Naver V app as a countdown to their upcoming debut. The boys showed their daily rehearsals and preparations, as well as their album jacket photo shoot and the filming for their first music video.[11][12] On February 22, the company announced via SNS that the group would debut with their first single album on March 3, 2016.[3] On February 23 to 26, the band performed in several universities' freshman orientations.[13]

2016–present: Debut with "Knock", Japanese debut and Mix Nine[edit]

On February 26, 2016, teaser for the music video of KNK's debut single "Knock" was released.[14] The song was composed by production team ButterFly, led by Hwang Seong-je who composed BoA's "Atlantis Princess", Lee Soo-young's "Whistle to Me" and more, while the rap part was written by member Youjin. Furthermore, their choreography was helmed by Prepix’s Ha Woo-shin and the music video was directed by Lee Ki-baek.[15][16] Three days later, the band had their debut showcase at Ilchi Art Hall, Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam District, Seoul, where they performed their songs "Knock" and "Angel Heart", as well as TVXQ's "Love in the Ice" and Kim Kwang-seok's "On the Street".[17][18] On March 1, KNK made their debut on The Show, the band's first performance on a television music show. Their single album and music video for "Knock" was officially released on the 3rd of March.[19]

The group had their first schedule outside of South Korea, and performed their debut single "Knock" at the 20th China Music Awards in Macau on April 15.[20]

KNK released their first digital single "I Remember" on May 16. The medium tempo R&B track was composed by Kim Tae-joo, who also produced Beast's "Good Luck", "12:30", and more.[21]

On May 23, YNB Entertainment announced the comeback of the group with their first extended play (EP), titled Awake, through KNK's official SNS channels. A group image teaser and individual photos for the EP was unveiled on May 24 and 25 respectively.[22][23][24] Awake and the music video for title track "Back Again" was released at noon on June 2. All tracks were produced by Kim Tae-joo. The choreography for the house tempo dance track "Back Again" was arranged by Prepix’s Ha Woo-shin while the choreography for the album's first track "Gone" was arranged by KNK's leader, Jihun.[25][26][27] Awake peaked at number 14 on Billboard's World Album chart and the group was recognized by Billboard as one of the most promising K-pop debuts from the first half of 2016.[28]

On November 7, KNK's comeback with their second EP titled Remain was announced through their official SNS channels. The track list was also released on the 10th, revealing that Kim Tae-joo once again worked with KNK as the producer of the EP, while tracks "Goodbye" and "Tonight" were composed and written by members Youjin and Heejun respectively.[29][30] On November 15, the music video teaser for the title track titled "U" was released, however it was announced the next day that the agency decided to dispose the music video due to quality issues. A representative stated that there were no plans to film it again.[31][32][33] Remain was released on November 17, and KNK held their live comeback showcase the same day through Naver V Live, where they performed TVXQ's "Love in the Ice", as well as their new songs "I Know" and "U".[34] On December 21, KNK was included on Billboard's "10 Best New K-Pop Groups in 2016" list.[35][36]

In March 2017, KNK announced their first solo concert and the first stop of Asian tour. The two-day sold-out concert titled The F1rst Step was held on April 8–9 at the Shinhan Card Fan Square Live Hall in Seoul. It was then followed by concerts in Osaka, Tokyo and Taipei.[37][38]

On May 12, KNK announced their first comeback of the year by releasing a promotion plan poster of the group's second single album named Gravity. It features its lead single titled "Sun, Moon, Star", "Think About You" and "Love You". All songs were composed and written by Kim Tae-joo.[39][40][41] Two days later, it was revealed that the choreography for the lead single was arranged by KNK's leader Jihun.[42] The music video teaser for "Sun, Moon, Star" was released on May 22. Before the official release of the single album, KNK performed the lead single on the May 23rd episode of The Show, and 24th on Show Champion.[43][44] The album, along with the lead single's music video was released on the 25th. It was also released as a digital download on various music sites.[45] On July 7, KNK confirmed another round of promotion with a reissue of Gravity, titled Gravity, Completed.[46] On July 12–13, individual video teasers of the members were released, while the music video teaser for the title track titled "Rain" was uploaded on the 14th.[47][48][49] The album, along with the music video for "Rain", was released on July 20. KNK also held their comeback stage on M Countdown the same day.[50]

In August, KNK confirmed to make their Japanese debut in October with a single titled "U / Back Again" that consists of their two previous released title tracks from their EPs Awake and Remain respectively. The CD single has three versions; Standard Edition, Limited Edition A and Limited Edition B. On October 3, the group released the performance video of "U (Japanese version)". The single album was officially released on October 11.[51][52][53][54]

On September 29, it was announced that the group had joined the JTBC and YG Entertainment survival show titled Mix Nine. KNK's agency posted a statement on their fan cafe to announce that they had received an offer from the producers of Mix Nine and after a long time of consideration and discussion by the agency and the group, it was decided that all the members would appear on the show. Three members—Park Seung-jun, Jeong In-seong and Oh Hee-jun passed the audition and competed with other contestants but was later eliminated and did not make it to the finale.[55][56]

On April 19 2018, YNB Entertainment announced that KNK member Kim Youjin had been diagnosed with a panic disorder, and as a result of this, KNK would continue to promote temporarily as a 4-member group while Youjin focused on recovery.[57]

On April 28 2018, YNB Entertainment announced on the official fancafe that members Kim Jihun, Jeong Inseong and Oh Heejun would release a digital single titled "한 끗 차이" at 6 p.m. KST the same day. [58]
