There is a wide variety of quality in K-pop group names. Some of them will live on in indelible memory, while others are more likely to just cause raised eyebrows. AMPERS&ONE, a boy band signed to FNC Entertainment, has a name that is most likely on the extreme end of that range; however, we will not specify which end it is on. In spite of this, there is a lot of anticipation surrounding them because they are the next boy group to make their debut on FNC after P1Harmony did so in October 2020 (with a full-fledged science fiction movie, no less!). The following is an exhaustive response to the question of when precisely Jiho, Mackiah, Siyun, Brian, Kyrell, Seungmo, and Kamden will make their debut as AMPERS&ONE in the K-pop industry.
AMPERS&ONE will make its public debut on November 15th, 2023, with AMERSANDO ONE.
The first single album by AMPERS&ONE will be released on November 15, 2023, at 6:00 p.m. KST, marking the band’s official debut. At eight o’clock in the evening, in Korean Standard Time (KST), Blue Square MasterCard Hall will play host to a fan showcase that will also take place online on the same day. The pre-ordering of the album will begin on November 3, 2023, and there will be three different editions available. The actual song or songs that are included on the single album do not yet have available information; nevertheless, this space will be changed properly as soon as the information becomes available.
In a related development, when the release date for the debut album was announced, FNC had not yet finished revealing what all seven members of the group looked like. However, the public was already familiar with Na Kamden, Brian, and Choi Jiho due to their participation in the 2023 Mnet survival challenge, Boys Planet. (Brian and Jiho joined the competition as trainees for FNC, although Kamden was a member of Yuehua Entertainment at the time.) Mackiah, who is from Australia; Brian, who is from Canada; and both Kyrell and Kamden, who are both from Seattle, are the members of AMPERS&ONE who are originally from a country other than South Korea. This is a striking fact. Jiho and Seungmo both hail from Seoul, while Siyun was born and raised in Incheon.
In a nutshell, AMPERS&ONE will make their official debut with the single album titled AMPERSAND ONE on November 15, 2023, at 6:00 p.m. KST. They are the first new male group to be released by FNC Entertainment since P1Harmony, and a significant number of the members were recruited from outside the United States.
