It is amazing to see how a group that has yet to make their debut is receiving the limelight and many are speculating that they will be a big issue once they make their official debut soon.
Previously, Rain had also introduced each of the members through his YouTube channel "Season B Season" through a rather 'unique way'. Make sure to check out the fully subtitled video below!
