Korea’s top singer and actor Rain asked his fans to support his new boy band MBLAQ that made its television debut Thursday. The five-member boy band is the first group he created and trained over the last two years.
In a note posted on his Web site, Rain said, “I really thank you for the support you showed at MBLAQ’s debut performance. Please continue to cheer them on and give more encouragement.”
The band made a debut performance at Rain’s concert last week in Seoul.
Rain said he is pleased to have been engaged in producing works for the first time.
MBLAQ also made a television debut on a cable music channel “M Countdown” Thursday.
He said he was so pleased and happy that MBLAQ made a broadcasting debut, adding that it made him “more nervous” than when he himself started out.
The five-member boy band has swept various music charts with its first mini-album “Just BLAQ,” reaching No. 1 on several online and offline music charts, according to J. Tune Entertainment, the agency run by Rain.
The group’s debut album contains the single “Oh Yeah” and three other songs, including “G.O.O.D Luv” and “My Dream.”
MBLAQ is expected to bring a change to the K-pop music scene that has been dominated by girl groups. (Korea Times)
