XING Entertainment to unleash group XING 5th Generation

Remember group XING?

Debuted in 2006 as 4 members, then the group went through many tough times with members leaving and joining – member count was from 4 to 5 to 7 to 6 and then to 8 the last time the group released an album.

Recently XING Entertainment revealed on its official homepage a teaser video to group XING 5th Generation now with 5 members.

Go under the cut to find out more.

  • In July 2007, Marumir left the group. 2 new members Poppin’ Dragon and ZEN joined. XING released 2nd single as a 5-member group
  • But in September 2007, Cheon HyeSung left the group abruptly. Later in January 2008, Yume also left the group – both without the official statement from the company. In the same month, Poppin’ Dragon also left the group.
