DN-A / The Boss
The Boss (often referred to as DGNA or, incorrectly, D-NA), is a South Korean boy band with five members, formed under Open World Entertainment in 2010. Their official color is Pearl Terracotta. It was revealed on February 2011 by their official website. In South Korea they are known as Dae Guk Nam Ah, literally meaning ‘The Boys of Super Space’, which is how their English name of ‘The Boss’ was formed, which is mainly used outside of Korea. In Japan, they are known as Daikoku Danji (大國男兒).
The boys have also said that they would like to be known as the ‘Younger Brothers of the Nation’. The group consists of 5 members HyunMin, In Joon, GaRam, Jay and Mika. They are known for their good vocal capabilities and harmony as well as their dance capabilities. Ahead of their official debut, they had their debut showcase on 3rd March in Seoul ShinSaDong YoonDang Art Hall. These singers had spent the past 3 years in preparation for their debut. And they picked group DBSK,TVXQ as their role model, determined to be the 2nd DBSK/TVXQ.
All five members of The Boss were formerly members of Xing Entertainment and members of the generation band Xing (band) with different stage names. This means that all of the members, despite joining Xing at different times, are all talented and experienced in the Korean music industry.
After being officially announced on January 28, 2010, The Boss debuted on March 4, 2010 with their song ‘Admiring Boy’ on Mnet Coundown. The Boss’ fancafe exceeded 40,000 members in only a few months of their existence, overshining other popular fancafes such as that of fellow Korean band Brown Eyed Girls. On June 18, 2010, they performed a comeback on KBS2’s Music Bank with ‘Biteul, Biteul’ (‘비틀비틀’), also known as ‘Stumble Stumble’, after releasing the respective music video. They also went onto promote another hit, ‘Nobody…Anybody’ (‘아무도…그누구도’) in August 2010, but without a music video release this time.
After almost immediate overseas success in countries such as Thailand and China, The Boss are currently scheduled to spend some time in Japan to promote there, with aid of Japanese music company, Digital Adventure.
