Korean boy group MYNAME attended a press event on June 11th for their upcoming Japanese debut single “Message”, scheduled for release on July 25th.
At the event, the boys were asked who their favorite Japanese artists were. Rapper Seyong mentioned that his favorite Japanese artist is Arashi. He smiled, “It’s because Arashi has five members and so does MYNAME. I like Matsumoto Jun.” Main vocalist Insoo said, “I choose SMAP, since each one of them is charming and has individuality. I want MYNAME to become like SMAP.”
Insoo also delivered a message to the group’s Japanese fans, stating, “The fans in Japan have given us so much support. We’re preparing a lot of different things, so please look forward to it.” Leader Gunwoo commented about the group’s song, “We also debuted in Korea with this song. When you listen to this song, you will know what kind of group we are.”
After having debuted in Korea on October 28, 2011, MYNAME has signed with Yoshimoto Group’s label YM3D for their Japanese debut. The group will also be featured as comic characters in the shoujo manga magazine “Sho-Comi”.
During the same event, the group also held a fan event including a performance of their song, a talk session, and games, getting the fans pumped up for their upcoming debut.
