ATEEZ is an eight-member group under KQ Entertainment. They were known as KQ Fellaz during their pre-debut. The group consists of Hongjoong, Seonghwa, Yunho, Yeosang, San, Mingi, Wooyoung, and Jongho. The group debuted with the songs 'Treasure,' and Pirate King on October 24, 2018. ATEEZ signed with U.S. record label RCA on July 9, 2019.

Although ATEEZ only had their debut in October last year, they have made their way into the hearts of millions of people all over the world whilst they were still trainees, as "KQ FELLAZ," before their lineup for the official debut was finalized. The video of the boys dancing to "Pick it Up” by Famous Dex & A$AP Rocky went viral and currently has over 2.15 million views, which is unheard of, especially for a group who hadn't debuted yet. (Source: culture.affinitymagazine)

Videos You Should Definitely Watch

Reasons why you should stan them

Their Sync

Their sync is absolutely no joke. They are truly amazing. Many groups strive for this type of sync and ATEEZ definitely has matched it. You can tell they practice from sun up to sun down in order to get it just right. One example is with the Wonderland performance. This song's choreography has many hard and swift movements. Yet, even so, they still match their steps perfectly. Their stage performance quality is hard to beat.

Their Vocals and Rap

Hongjoong and Mingi are known as the rappers of the group, and Jongho is well known for his strong and powerful voice. Jongho's voice is spectacular. Mingi's raps are to die for. You really hear the passion in their raps and singing. They just did dance covers, but it was a shock to everyone when they started singing and rapping. Seonghwa also has an amazing voice. They just are a talented group.

They're Dynamic

You can always see them having fun together. Their laughter, loudness, and excitement are what make them ATEEZ. They enjoy being around each other and seem like their own little family.

Their Interaction with Fans

They always include the fans in everything they do and you can tell that they truly love their fans. From music shows to concerts, they always interact with fans and hype up the audience.

One example of this is when they went to Venice Beach. There was a dance cover group doing covers of ATEEZ's songs and ATEEZ actually popped in during the performance! The funniest is when San pretended to be an old man in the audience. Just watch it. You won't regret it.
