There’s so much going on around the world right now, but there’s no other way but to keep moving forward and to continuously inspire each other to be stronger. Amidst all the unfortunate events, VICTON—the very first boy group under Plan A Entertainment—is back with its sixth mini-album, Continuous, to give us more reasons to never lose hope.
Before debuting, VICTON members were introduced in the variety show, Me & 7 Men, to give a sneak peek of their preparations as trainees for debut. The first episode aired on Mnet on August 30, 2016.
On November 9 of the same year, VICTON officially debuted with seven members, namely Seungwoo, Seungsik, Chan, Sejun, Hanse, Byungchan, and Subin. They released their first mini-album, Voice To the New World, alongside their youthful retro-pop title track “I’m Fine.” In their debut song, Seungwoo and Hanse wrote their parts in the lyrics.
VICTON returned on March 2, 2017 with a new sound and a darker concept. This time, they released their second mini-album, Ready, with the funky dance single “Eyez Eyez.” During the promotion, they announced their official colors and fan club name, ALICE, which stands for “Always we Love the voICE.”
Within the same year, VICTON released its third and fourth mini-albums, namely Identity and From.VICTON. The third mini-album’s upbeat pop title track, “Unbelievable,” displayed the fun and playful side of VICTON once more.
The fourth mini-album’s title track, “Remember Me,” was composed and arranged by Good Life, the production team behind Highlight’s music. This is not a surprise given the song’s progression—dance-pop with a melodic chorus.
Prior to their one-year hiatus, VICTON left ALICE with a sentimental single, “Time of Sorrow.”
In November 2019, VICTON came back with six members for its fifth mini-album, Nostalgia. The group’s leader, Seungwoo, was in hiatus for X1’s promotions.
The melancholic title song, “Nostalgic Night,” led them to their first music show win since debut. Following the release, “Nostalgic Night” and other songs in the album landed on Melon and other charts. VICTON also made it to Billboard’s Social 50 chart for the first time, at #45.
