While WINNER has yet to make to make their official debut, they’ve already been on an emotional roller coaster with their fans. The quintet is the result of a reality-survivor TV show, “Who Is Next: WIN,” where South Korean record label YG Entertainment (PSY, BIGBANG, 2NE1) pitted two potential boy bands against one another for viewers to vote to a proper K-pop debut. With their official first single said to be coming by the end of February, WINNER has managed to rack up accolades like opening for BIGBANG’s Japanese tour, snagging a clothing endorsement and appearing on U.S.-based music channel, Fuse.
