Okay, so we aren’t really learning together. VIXX is my favorite group of all time, but rather than only doing these new biographies on groups I’m not super in tune with wouldn’t be fair to the groups I do love. For the first installment in the new series (technically the second installment overall but whatever) we talk about my OT6!

9. I also included their music video collaborations with other groups the two Christmas singles with the other singers in their company, and their collaboration with the indie duo 옥상달빛 (OKDAL). [individual members have also worked with others but will be listed with those members descriptions below]
Step 2: Group Info!
The group is signed under Jellyfish Entertainment Company.
Their name is an acronym for Voice, Visual, Value in Excelsis.
The group was created in part through a Mnet’s reality show MyDol where they vied with some other prospects for spots in the group based on viewers votes. Watch the first episode with English subs: here.
From nearly their debut until they had 100 episodes under their belt the boys also put out videos on YouTube every Tuesday for their fans. I highly recommend watching VIXX TV.
They also have made appearances on a number of variety shows. Most memorable of which is probably the debut of VIXX GIRLS.
I also highly recommend looking up some of their radio show appearances (especially on 심심타파 (Shimshimtapa) if you want to laugh).
