VIXX

V I X X  

First thing that I want to say is that VIXX is one of my favorite K-pop group. The reason why I decided to write about them is because I would like people to know of how great they are. The first time I saw Vixx I did not think much about them. But then one day I decided to listen to their song and since that time I became a Starlight (Name of their fans). I would like for you guys to also to give them chance and listen to them and see their charm.
The beginning of Vixx was through a Korean television show by the name “MyDol“. This television show was design to find the six or seven people that would have the chance to debut as a idol group. In the process of finding the ones that would make up this group. The members face many challenges. The company then decided to make a six member group. The six lucky member that made it were name NLeoKenHongbin, Ravi, and Hyuk. By the end of  “MyDol” the fans had the option to choose the name of the new made up group. The names where “J.Dice” which means six side of a dice. “VIX” which stand for Voice, Visual and Value in exelsis. “SEESUN” with the meaning to become idols who stay in sight and shine like the sun. The fans ultimate decided for the name “VIX” which was then added another x to become “VIXX“. But before their debut member N, Leo, and Ravi where feature on fellow Jellyfish artist Seo In-Guk’s music video “Shake It Up” and Hongbin was also feature on Seo In-Guk’s video “Tease Me“. They where also feature on Brian Joo’s Let This Die” which they also dance background to during life performances.VIXX made their debut on May 24, 2012 with song “Super Hero“. After their debut VIXX had their first oversea performance on the Otakon convention  in Baltimore, Maryland. On August 14, 2012 VIXX release their second single album “Rock Ur Body“. Then on October 13 on the same year VIXX held a fan signing even and perform “SuperHero” and “Rock Ur Body” on the 2012 KCON.On January 20, 2013 VIXX announce their official fan club name, ST☆RLIGHT.
