Pre-debut

On July 2015, the members of UP10TION made their debut and were introduced one by one through their show "Masked Rookie King," also known as "King of Masked Rookie UP10TION," a parody of MBC's "King of Mask Singer." The members competed and showed their abilities and charms while wearing a mask in front of a panel of judges. Those who were selected by the judges were be able to take off their mask. The panel of judges was Shinhwa's Andy, Teen Top's Chunji, and 100%'s Rokhyun and Chanyong. The first member was introduced was Wooshin. The second and third members were Jinhoo and Hwanhee. The fourth member was Bit-to with a deep soulful voice, and the fifth was Kogyeol with a powerful and emotional vocal. The sixth and seventh members were Kuhn and Sunyoul, who both have a charming visual and voice. The ten-member group was finally introduced with its last members Wei, Gyujin, and Xiao.
