The Kep1er members have been taking over the industry with their awesome music! The embers of the girl group were found through Mnet’s survival show named Girls Planet 999 2021, which was managed by Swing Entertainment and Wake One Entertainment. Ever since their debut with their first extended play on January 3, 2022, with First Impact, they have been gaining thousands of fans every second. Within minutes, the lead single of First Impact had been all over the internet, whether it be Instagram or Youtube.
Just a few months after their debut, it was announced that Kep1er would be a part of the competitors in the second season of Queendom along with VIVIZ, WJSN, LOONA, Hyolyn, and Brave Girls. Despite being a rookie group, the Kep1er members had impressed everyone with their skills and had placed in the fifth position. The members, in such a small amount of time, have already started to eat up the industry one by one with their cute personalities and, of course, their catchy music. Each and every nine members of Kep1er shines really bright and catches the attention of even on-lookers. So, without further ado, let us start getting to know the Kep1er members!
Yujin is the leader of the group and also the eldest of the Kep1er members. Yujin was born on August 12, 1996, in Jeonju, North Jeolla province, South Korea.
