K-pop music is not restricted to any one type of music type. We have groups, soloists and bands. Xdinary Heroes is one such band. The band debuted in December 2021 to good responses. The group is under JYP Entertainment, which is also known for its boy band Day6. If you love such music or are just beginning to like Xdinary Heroes, you must be curious about the members.

The buzz around Xdinary Heroes started before their official debut. In July 2021, JYP trademarked the name Xdinary Heroes. No wonder, netizens started speculating if a new boy group/band is on its way. In October 2021, a video teaser was released too, which ended with the message, “We are all heroes”. After this teaser, JYP also dropped teasers for every member, giving an idea to the netizens about their position in the band. The band made their debut with the song “Happy Death Day” on 6 December 2021.
