Karam, Injun and Jay of boy band DGNA will join up again to form a new boy band, ASC2NT, the boy band’s agency New Ways Company said Wednesday.
“We’ve recruited Karam, Injun and Jay alongside two new members and will be debuting a five-member boy band ASC2NT,” the agency said in a press release Wednesday.
ASC2NT is preparing to debut in the first half of 2024. The band’s name ASC2NT is derived from the word ascent, combined with the number two, referring to the members’ desire to start their second life as part of the band.

Reon will be the rapper and the sub-vocalist of the band, while sub-vocalist Kyle, who can speak Korean, English and Indonesian, will specialize in communicating with the global community, according to the agency.
Karam, Injun and Jay debuted as members of boy band DGNA in 2010. The three members joined JTBC’s boy band audition program “Peak Time” in 2023, but all three members decided to step down from the show after past photos of Jay sparked controversy.

ASC2NT is a group named after the word “ASCENT”, which means “to rise” or “ascend”. In addition, the number 2 means starting a second life, and it symbolizes the aspiration to start a second life and rise to a higher place.

The agency said, “ASC2NT is scheduled to debut in the first half of this year,” and “As it is made up of new members with excellent skills and members who have acquired skills through past activities, ASC2NT’s unique synergy will be enhanced. I think it will be effective.”

NEW WAYS COMPANY was founded by CEO Park Kwang-won, who has been a manager for 25 years. Starting with the launch of the first boy group ASC2NT, we plan to welcome artists full of potential one after another.
