RIIZE is a fresh boy band taking the K-Pop world by storm. This talented group stands out from other SM Entertainment artists as they are the first to exist outside the company’s fictional metaverse, KWANGYA. RIIZE isn’t just about the music – it’s the talent behind the tracks! This seven-member group brings a unique blend of skills.

Shotaro cuts a rug with his sharp dance moves, while Eunseok serenades fans with his smooth vocals. Sungchan keeps things lively with his rapping, and Wonbin RIIZE steals hearts with his captivating smile. Seunghan adds another dimension with his musical talents, and Sohee belts out powerful notes as the main vocalist. Don’t forget Anton, the youngest RIIZE member, bringing his bright energy and impressive rapping skills to the mix!

Their catchy pre-debut tracks like “Love 119” and “Siren” whipped fans into a frenzy before they even officially debuted, solidifying them as a group to watch with their unique sound that stands out from the crowd.

"Get a Guitar": A Debut that Rocked the Charts

RIIZE members officially debuted on September 4, 2023, with their first single album, “Get a Guitar.” The title track offered a unique emotional-pop vibe, while the B-side “Memories” showcased their versatility. “Get a Guitar” soared on music charts in Korea, Japan, and China, solidifying their debut success. Shortly after their debut, RIIZE made history again, becoming the first group outside of a survival show to sell over a million copies of their debut album in its first week. Their dedication and talent were further recognized a month later at The Fact Music Awards (TMAs), where they received the prestigious ‘Next Leader’ award.

The wait is finally over for RIIZE fans! After a wildly successful debut, the group is back with their highly anticipated mini-album, “RIIZING,” dropping on June 17, 2024. This RIIZE comeback (2024) promises to be an electrifying adventure, jam-packed with eight tracks that showcase RIIZE’s unique sound. Early teasers sent shivers down fans’ spines, hinting at a return to their signature Y2K-inspired sound with a fresh, modern twist. This theme of “hustle” perfectly translates into the title track, “BOOM BOOM BASS,” described as a powerful anthem guaranteed to get stuck in your head.

But “RIIZING” isn’t just about reliving the past. The album is expected to offer a perfect blend of nostalgia and modern K-Pop sensibilities. We can expect a variety of tracks beyond the high-energy title track. With this diverse mix of sounds and their signature “hustle” theme, “RIIZING” promises to be a well-rounded album that caters to both longtime fans and newcomers to the RIIZE sound.

With a strong debut and a recent EP release, “RIIZING,” RIIZE is quickly gaining a loyal fanbase, affectionately called BRIIZE. From top-tier vocals and smooth rapping to captivating dance moves, RIIZE offers a dynamic experience for every K-Pop fan.

Since RIIZE is a relatively new group (it debuted September 4, 2023), they don’t have a vast discography yet. If you like emotional pop, check out “Get a Guitar.” But, if you prefer the modern K-Pop with a Y2K twist, give “RIIZING” a listen (released on June 17, 2024).
