History[edit]

Pre-debut[edit]

On July 2015, UP10TION made its official debut by introducing each member, one by one, through their show Masked Rookie King, also known as King of Masked Rookie UP10TION, which is a parody of MBC's King of Mask Singer.[1] The members competed and showed their abilities and charms while wearing a mask in front of a panel of judges. Those that were selected took off their masks. The panel of judges were Shinhwa's Andy, Teen Top's Chunji, and 100%'s Rokhyun and Chanyong. The first member that was introduced was Wooshin and he was described as a look-alike of the actor Park Bo-Gum. The second and third members were Jinhoo and Hwanhee. The fourth member was Bit-to with a deep soulful voice and the fifth was Kogyeol with a powerful and emotional vocal. The sixth and seventh members were Kuhn and Sunyoul, who both have charming looks and voices. The ten-member group was finally introduced with its latest members Wei, Gyujin, and Xiao.

On November 26, UP10TION released their second mini album BRAVO! with the lead single "Catch me!" which was produced by Iggy and Yong Bae, who produced Ailee′s Heaven and GFriend′s Me Gustas Tu. It also includes the track Party2nite which was written and composed by Teen Top's Changjo.[8][9] The album peaked at number 5 on Gaon Album Chart.[10]

There were official statements released by both parties' agencies that denied these claims,[17] along with the production staff from "The Show".[18]
