A brand-new concept of idol groups was introduced through this 5urprise (Surprise). It is the first ever South Korean actors’ group that has 5 members under Fantagio Entertainment in 2013.
Unlike idol groups which begin their careers as singers and later expand their endeavors to acting, 5urprise really surprised us by opting an opposite direction. It is a group made up of actors.
Members are Seo Kang Joon, Lee Tae Hwan, Yoo Il, Gong Myung, and Kang Tae Oh.These rookie actors have undergone training for two years in singing and dancing as well.
This 90s liner and tall guys group made their acting debut in “After School: Lucky or Not“, a 12-episode drama of about 15 minutes each. 5urprise released the single “Hey U Come On” for the mobile drama’s soundtrac,k and released their first single in 2014, titled From My Heart.
“My surprise is a new group of actors who are different from the existing idol group[S]. Each individual has come to his debut through audiences and training sessions with high-quality actors, and he is the most basic actor In addition to acting skills, it is made up of solid new talents with various abilities such as dancing and singing. “~Fantagio.
