One of the best seasons of the year is here: Summer! And the boys from P1Harmony shared with K-magazine, in an exclusive interview, how to spend a great holiday, their most recent album, and one or two secrets about their career as Kpop idols. If you’re part of P1ECE, you must check this out!
Just nine months ago, the agency FNC Entertainment introduced us to P1Harmony, formed by members Keeho, Theo, Soul, Jiung, Intak and Jongseob. Since their debut, this group caught the eye of the audience by integrating boys from South Korea, Japan, Canada and New Zealand, and by bringing a whole new concept in their agency.
Their debut was with DISHARMONY: STAND OUT, the mini-album with which they took their fans to a film world with PH1: The Start of a New World. And with the mix between this film and their musical content, FNC and the group achieved to carry Kpop’s musical universe through the big screen.
These boys from P1Harmony have it all to make it big: catchy sounds, amazing choreography, high quality production, meaningful lyrics, and a concept between Kmovie and Kpop that make them different within the industry. And, of course, the significant love and support that they soon received from P1ECE, their fandom.

This year, they came back to keep looking for their own light in the industry. How did they do it? With “Scared”, their title song from DISHARMONY: BREAK OUT, and the sequence which reinstated the cinematographic concept they debuted with.
Here’s what they told us about their new album.

Soul: I never had one so far.
What has been the funniest anecdote you’ve had as a group?
Theo: We were looking at our photos from the past when we were in the waiting room, and they were just so funny that we almost cried while laughing.
