INI debuts November 3, 2021!

INI's senior group JO1 will debut members in December 2019 and March 2020.
In the same vein, you made your debut about 4 months after the formation of INI on June 13, 2021.

The INI debut song is "Rocketeer".

Isn't it cool to be a bachi boko...

The music is very oratorical and gory, with a lot of rapping and dancing, and a strong K-pop element.
INI too cool !!!!!

Where is INI's office?

INI's office is LAPONE Entertainment (also known as LAPONE).

Rapone is a merger company of Korean giant CJ ENM and Yoshimoto Kogyo.
The first artist to belong to the group is JO1, also from PRODUCE101 JAPAN.
INI is the second group of Laponais.

Huh? Yoshimoto affiliate? You might have thought.
Rapone is one of Yoshimoto Kogyo's group companies, and the menagerie is outsourced to Yoshimoto Kogyo.

This may sound like Yoshimoto is involved, but as a company, it is independent and is a separate company from the comedy company Yoshimoto.

Although it's a separate company from Yoshimoto, it's taking over the expertise of a major company, and we can expect great things from INI in the years to come!
