Pre-Debut and the Era of iTeen


Prior to debuting in 2016 as the six-member group, ASTRO, the members were part of Fantagio's trainee program, iTeen.
During their time as "iTeen Boys," the members participated in marketing campaigns, small modeling gigs and appearances, and showing off their antics through quirky and cute behind the scenes photos around the Fantagio company.

The first appearance of the members was through an ad for "Mr. Pizza" in 2013 as promotional models (January 20, 2013).
Additionally, the trainees of iTeen (girls and boys) wrote, produced, and performed a song for Mr. Pizza, entitled "I Love Pizza!"

During the initial teasing of their new boy group, Fantagio marketed the mystery boys of iTeen as a seven-member group to debut in 2014. This changed over time, however, and Son Junyong left the lineup after taking part in many pre-debut showcases and iTeen's "Trainee Funk," choreographed by member Rocky (Minhyuk).

In August of 2015, Fantagio announced that six of the trainees in iTeen would be featured in their own web drama, "To Be Continued". The drama tells the story of a male Kpop idol group that suddenly slips back in time to one day before the group's debut. They have to make sure everything they do matches before so that they ensure their debut, but when the members start to forget the memories of the debut and afterward, will it cause them to fall apart?
Air Date: August 8, 2015 - September 3, 2015


A YouTube user was kind enough to upload the full episodes with English subs to a playlist on YouTube.
