Musical style and influences

Upon debut, 24K employed various genres into its music. On the mini-album Hurry Up, the record incorporated pop, trance, dubstep, and industrial into its sound. On the second mini-album U R So Cute, the group incorporated elements of hip-hop and electronic dance music.

Cory has expressed his admiration for hip-hop producers Dr. Dre and Teddy Park. Kisu was influenced by Urban Zakapa, which led to his fascination with R&B and soul music.

Lineup

24K had their January 2016 Poland concert without Sung-oh. They held an April 2016 showcase in Malaysia with Sungoh and Daeil being absent for unknown reasons. On August 1, Choeun Entertainment made an official statement saying that members Daeil and Sungoh would be on hiatus; Sungoh was receiving medical treatment for his dislocated shoulder and Daeil had chosen to take a personal leave, although it was later discovered that Daeil had left the group to debut as a solo artist under the name "Big One." The statement also revealed that two new members, Changsun and Hongseob, would be added to continue as a seven-member group.
