P NATION‘s first male idol group, TNX, debuted on May 15 with their first mini album Way Up. The group’s lineup was formed through the SBS competition reality show LOUD.
The group was originally slated to have seven members until P NATION announced earlier this year that the youngest selected member, Tanaka Koki, born in 2009, would not be debuting in order to spend more time training.
Taehun was born in Incheon, South Korea, and is the leader of the group. He was a former trainee with The Black Label before becoming a trainee with P Nation.
Kyungjun was born in South Korea and spent ten years living in Brisbane, Australia. When he returned to Korea, he was street cast and decided he wanted to become a K-Pop idol. He is a former Big Hit Entertainment trainee.
When Hyunsoo was on LOUD, PSY personally chose to save him from elimination. He is a former TS Entertainment trainee.
Junhyeok spent part of his childhood studying in the Philippines. He was originally interested in singing ballads, but adjusted his style to fit P NATION’s hip hop sound.
Hwi received a casting offer from both JYP Entertainment and P NATION during his time on LOUD. He is a producer and rapper in TNX.
Sungjun is the maknae of the group and also received casting offers from JYP Entertainment and P NATION while on LOUD.
