Before there was a Young K of DAY6, there was a boy in Toronto, Canada called Brian Kang. During this time, Young K began to pursue music and joined a group called 3rd Degree. He would later join another group known as KMESS.
KMESS consisted of the three original 3rd Degree members with the addition of two more. These groups primarily posted English cover songs on YouTube.
JYP Entertainment ended up scouting the three original members including Young K. This lead to Young K becoming a trainee under JYP Entertainment and joining as a member of a band 5LIVE. Later, the band became what we now know as DAY6.
When Young K successfully debuted, his friends were so excited to see their friend’s hard work pay off! The KMESS members got together to celebrate by sharing a tribute video consisting of pre-debut clips and inside jokes.
They also made one more cover song for YouTube. To wish Young K congratulations on his debut, they made a music video for an original English cover of DAY6’s “Congratulations.” 🥺 I think it’s safe to say they are his biggest fans.
