Boys24: Where Are They Now?

Boys24: Where Are They Now?

BOYS24 was a survival show aired on MNET presented by Oh Yeonseo. The show aired on June 18, 2016 consisting of 49 participants split into seven units:
Unit Yellow, Unit Blue, Unit White, Unit Green, Unit Purple, Unit Red and Unit Sky.
The first stage was ‘excavation’. Of the total of 5500 applicants, 49 were selected by Mnet.com as untreated gemstones.
The second stage was ‘competition’.
The third stage was ‘growth’, where only 4 unit’s would get to debut in a 28-member group Boys24 (it was actually 24 but later in the group there were changes), which would be confirmed in the theater and group would promote for a 1 year and 6 months.
The final stage was ‘evolution’. It could be said that they had evolved to become a crystal, and among the 28 people, a few select members who had the highest level in all aspects would make their debut as an idol group.
They would enter the world of ‘pro’ and start full-scale activity.
The final lineup was announced at Olympic Hall, Seoul on August 12, 2017 as a 9 member group called IN2IT.
IN2IT left MMO Entertainment on Jan 31, 2020. They’re now independent.
