But his debut is not the end of Sejun’s rocky journey but is only the start of it. Initially, the group struggled to gain much attention from K-pop fans, due to the influx of boy groups from big-sized companies.

But after members Seungwoo and Byungchan joined Mnet’s “Produce X 101,” the group finally received the recognition they deserve. Since then, VICTON enjoyed popularity both in Korea and in international countries.
