I would like to present you all this amazing group called 24K (투포케이).
Their fandom name's 24U and they're under "Choeun Entertainment".
They debuted the 6th of September of 2012 with 6 members: Sungoh, Seokjune, Kisu, Cory, Byungho and Daeil. The released song for their debut was called "Hurry Up" (빨리와) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEd0qhNNmk0
After nearly one year, they released another song, with a very different concept from their debut song called "U R So Cute" (귀여워죽겠어) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgJv3pJc1jw
Before that, Seokjune left 24K and Jeonguk joined.
In 2014, Byungho left the group too.
After nearly 2 years, they released another song called "Hey You" (오늘 예쁘네) with 2 new masked members. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utggP1n2P-o
They revealed their faces in May: Hui and Jinhong. Hui is from China and he's in charge of promotes in China, and Jinhong, who's from South Korea (ex-member of a group called "Double A" or "AA"), became the new youngest member (maknae).
Some months later, they released another song called "Super Fly" (날라리), which is an EDM song with some strong hip-hop beats.

In 2016, they returned with more changes in the group. Daeil and Sungoh became inactive members and 2 new members were added, whose names are Changsun and Hongseob (new youngest member). They released a classy EDM pop-style song, with some European beats called "Still 24K". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPsAtmGofT0
Two months later, they released another music video with the title "Bingo" (빙고), which is the continuation of the story of the previous music video "Still 24K". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEOo_zSAXxw
In the first half of 2017, they did two European tours called "Still With 24U" and "Still With 24U The Encore". They went to Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Finland, UK, Poland, Germany, France and Sweden.
In May of 2017, they released a new song with an electronic rhythm called "Only You" (너 하나면 돼).

In August of 2017, they did another European tour called "24K with Only You". They went to Spain, Germany, England, Poland and Hungary. Hui wasn't able to participate in this tour.
Actually, there are 8 members: 7 of them from South Korea and one of them from China. But one of them, Sungoh, is still inactive since "Super Fly" (날라리) era.
