KNK 2019 PIMP POST







KNK recently made their comeback with the sex dungeon anthem SUNSET and I wanted to do an updated intro post for new fans


Name:크나큰 (keunakeun), literal meaning is "to be great", is also used to mean "big".Also a pun on their heights.
English abbreviation is KNK (This stands for Kpop KNock but we don't acknowledge that).
Fandom name: Tinkerbell. Member Seungjun picked this because to them fans are small fairies protecting them.They've also stated that male fans are Tinkerbells too.
Agency:220 Entertainment (Formerly YNB Entertainment)
Debut: March 3 2016
SNS:
Group Twitter-V App Channel-Instagram-YouTube
Random Fact: The group has an average height of 185cm, making them the tallest active boy group in the industry.



KNK debuted under YNB entertainment in 2016 but their contracts with the label were dissolved once it shut down in 2018. Their former CEO was actually a decent dude and allowed them to keep the rights to their name and back catalogue.They moved to 220 Entertainment, a label established for them by one of their former managers and are now largely self-funded through platforms like Makestar

KNK's sound has previousl leaned toward a more old-school kpop feel. They've been branching out into trendier styles and self-composing .Their music is very vocals based given their strength as an ensemble.
[Title Tracks]

Knock: This was their debut single. An orchestral masterpiece featuring the iconic caveman dance

Back Again: This song calls to mind early BEAST songs. The hook will get stuck in your head, guranteed

U:This shows the boys trying out a slightly more modern sound with future bass elements.Due to a filming debacle, the official MV was never released.

Sun, Moon, Star: This song marks a new image change for KNK with a softe,r more mature vibe but keeping thier signature vocals

OMG, MOD-IDOLS. I'd call them the male nine muses for that but I want them to succeed (ugh, as a mine that joke HURTS ME to make and yet I must make it)

YESSS!!! their comeback song is so HOT! i love it! wishin them continued success, they deserve it!

When i heard sunset i thought it sounded exactly like sf9's now ornnever in terms of the chorus. Also is it trendy now to have one member thatvhas a super deep voice?
torontok 16th-Jul-2019 12:50 pm (UTC)
IDK about trendy but Seungjun who does the chorus of Sunset has always rapped in a deep voice, his parts in Rain, Back Again and Knock are that way too. Plus the new members has a very deep speaking voice.

awesome pimp post OP!! I really dig KNK's sound and every single one of their title tracks has been great :D Sunset is the gay anthem of 2019 omggg

(sorry for the edits, realised that the US dates were in the past!)

torontok 16th-Jul-2019 03:21 pm (UTC)
Thank you for adding these! I hope sales get better, the boys really need touring money to keep funding comebacks.Plus everyone I know who went to their U.S tour only has positive things to say
shazz_chan 16th-Jul-2019 04:20 pm (UTC)
Bless you for this, I used to listen to them casually in 2016 (U got me listening), and now Sunset Queer As Folk club theme happened and I'm being dragged back in!

Hoping to get a ticket for their London show as soon as I get paid, I didn't realise they weren't selling that well :( I'll try and boost it to as many ppl as I can <3
