Get excited to meet six-member K-pop boy band CROSS GENE in Singapore this June 18th at MILLIAN SINGAPORE, as the multi-national group has set a date to meet fans at their “Parallel World” Fan Meeting, where Singapore is the only Southeast Asian country lined up in their tour.
Comprising of members hailing from South Korea, Japan, and China, CROSS GENE has been active in the music scene since 2012, gaining recognition within the following year as they bagged the title of ‘K-pop Rookie Award’ at the 21st Korea Cultural Entertainment Awards.
Though the group has been actively involved in Japanese activities and promotions, they have also released several Korean singles and EPs, the latest being their third mini album ‘GAME’, which was unveiled in January this year. (Our personal favorite track is their title song, ‘Noona, You「누나 너 말야」’!)
With four Korean members, one Chinese and one Japanese member in the group respectively, each individual member represents a different “gene” and makes up the stylish and pop sound of CROSS GENE.
A vocalist and leader of CROSS GENE, SHIN (Born October 23, 1991) represents the ‘PRESH GENE’ in the group and has expressed his talents as an all-round entertainer, be it singing, acting or modeling.
He made his acting debut with a BEAN POLE commercial in 2011, followed by a K-drama debut in “Bachelor’s Vegetable Store” in the same year, acting alongside co-stars Ji Chang-wook, Kim Young-kwang, Park Soo-jin and more, which scored him the awards for ‘Best Rookie Actor’ and ‘Best Male Model Advertising’ in 2012.
Most of us may remember SHIN better in the 2012’s hit drama “Big”, where he starred in the series with Gong Yoo, Lee Min Jung and Miss A’s Suzy. More recently, SHIN was also one of the hosts for reality variety show “Dating Alone” last year.
Vocalist and Japanese member TAKUYA (Born March 18, 1992) needs no other words to describe his ‘GORGEOUS GENE’, as we attribute it to his good looks and height.
With a model height of 188cm, TAKUYA was in fact active as a model and actor in Japan prior to debuting as a member of CROSS GENE, not to mention that he also starred in a Japanese movie “Ai Ore!” (愛を歌うより俺に溺れろ!).
The ‘WILD CHIC GENE’ in the group, CASPER (Born March 20, 1991) takes charge of high toned rap and fans love him for his original style, being just who he is.
He is wild, he is chic, and he is very talented as well. CASPER was active as a CF model and TV host in China prior to being a member of CROSS GENE. The star also made headlines with his first ever starring role in a Taiwanese movie “青春的你”, which was released in February this year.
As with all other K-pop groups, there is always one maknae (youngest member) that catches our attention. Identified as the ‘MYPACE GENE’, YONGSEOK (Born January 8, 1993) is known for his pop and sexy vocals in the group.
Most recently, YONGSEOK has been casted for a role in ALTARBOYZ The Musical 2016, which will hit the stage in South Korea from June 14th to August 7th. And maybe it’s the nature of being the youngest member in the group, but he’s always well-loved for his playful and optimistic personality!
Also a rapper in the group, SANGMIN (Born July 7, 1992) is known for his distinguished low tone heavy rap. Always cheerful and outgoing, this ‘ORGANIC GENE’ is not only the sunshine of the group, but also the most acrobatic member in CROSS GENE.
Coming down to the final member, SEYOUNG (Born February 8, 1990) is represented as the ‘MIRACLE GENE’ in CROSS GENE. His husky and original voice color adds vibrancy to the group, and he is often praised for his brilliant composition and lyric writing skills.
At the upcoming Fan Meet in Singapore, fans can look forward to several game segments with the members which include very up-close interactions, as well as be treated to a string of hit songs that CROSS GENE has been preparing for this show.
