ATO6’s Shin Yongguk’s Debut
As is known, YG K-PLUS is home to models, actors, and actresses who are subsidiaries of YG Entertainment. Then, they created a project group called Project T in 2020 in the trot music genre. This group consisted of male models and was originally just a group for fun, but fans loved them so much since Project T was formed, and their newest creation was born. ATO6 on February 24, 2021, officially made their debut with the song “Runway.” ATO6 became the first YG K-PLUS group produced by Kwon Hyun-bin or better known as VIINI. ATO6 is a 6-member boy group that consists of Lee Gihean, Park Hong, Yoo Hyun-woo, Son Hyunwoo, Shin Yongguk, and Kim Hyunwoo. Lee Gihean is the leader in the group while Kim Hyunwoo is the maknae.
ATO6 itself has a meaning that is simple and easy to remember. “Ato” is interpreted as a gift, and because there are 6 members in this model group, ATO6 was born. “Runway” is Kwon Hyun-bin‘s first project as a music producer. Kwon Hyun-bin himself has been known since being one of the participants on Produce 101 Season 2. Kwon Hyun-bin was originally rumored to be debuting with Wanna One, but, in fact, it didn’t work out. Even so, Kwon Hyun-bin continued his career as a soloist. ATO6 also held an interview with News Nate and talked about their debut era. Shin Yongguk shared how he felt about his debut as a singer, stating, “When I debuted on the show, before going on the runway, I remember being so nervous backstage that my heart felt like my heart would explode. When I was walking, I felt like I couldn’t hear anything.” “I’ve never worked as a singer and had not yet been on stage, so I was really stunned. When I filmed a music video, I tried lip-syncing for the first time, but the shape of the mouth didn’t come out as expected, so it was a bit difficult. It’s different from when I debuted as a model, but it’s hard to express in words. It’s a strange feeling.” ATO6’s Shin Yongguk also shared about the killing point of their debut song “Runway” and said, “We were talking about lyrics amongst our members, but our main job is to be a model, so I thought it would be good if we talked about models.” “Kwon Hyun-bin also listened to our opinions, and when we think of models, the first thing that comes to mind is the runway, which is the point of the song. The killing point is probably the chorus. Among the chorus, the highest treble part is the killing point,” he said. Let’s give a lot of love and support to ATO6’s Shin Yongguk, and may their career shine even more in the future and this project continue with many other promotions!
