Naming your band after one of literature’s most romantic – and most doomed – characters is either genius or madness, and only time will tell if Romeo and their soon to be revealed sub-units will rise to genius.
The fresh-faced and energetic seven are Seunghwan (leader), Yunsung, Milo, Minsung, Kyle, Hyunkyung, and Kangmin (maknae).
They’re signed to CT Entertainment/Hunus Entertainment, and made their debut in May 2015 with the mini-album The Romeo. The second mini album in November 2015 was Zero In. Their fandom name is, of course, Juliet.
This week, they are said to be announcing three sub-units in the band as well as a comeback, Miro. The boys have been busy writing their own music and lyrics for each sub-unit. Nightmare was released a few weeks ago, in the run-up to the subunit announcement. Despite the ominous name it’s a cheerful, casual MV.
Far more snazzy-looking is Miro, the teaser they released on Tuesday, which features Minho from SHINee! It turns out the CEO of CT Entertainment, Hwang Sungwook, is a former SM Entertainment manager, so the company and artist wanted to show their support to the rookies. Look out for the MV release in the next 24 hours!
