They are none other than VICTON.
On Nov. 4, VICTON came back after a hiatus of 1 year 6 months with their 5th mini album “nostalgia”. For those who do not know much about this group, they first debuted back in Nov. 2016 and it is also close to their 3rd year anniversary that will take place on Nov. 9.
Previously, we have also explained through their recent fanmeeting review “VOICE TO ALICE” that they are currently active as a 6 member group since their leader, Han SeungWoo is currently promoting under X1.
Not long ago on online community, one fan shared how VICTON had actually undergone a crisis period which many K-Pop fans fear for their favorite group.
Apparently despite the initial ‘push’ by their agency, Play M Entertainment, they did not grow as a group. Since they were not bringing in the profits, it became hard for them to continue to promote as a group. With that being said, the future for VICTON becomes uncertain and they underwent a period of hiatus.
After the appearance of Han SeungWoo and member ByungChan on Mnet “Produce X 101”, they began to show results that were rather astounding.
Firstly, their fans, ALICE, was initially unsure if VICTON would be making a comeback after the end of the audition program. Later, member Chan hinted to them that they would be able to see them soon.
VICTON soon held their fanmeeting “VOICE TO ALICE” which was a complete sold out and ByungChan even had his own fanmeeting “Be Shinning: 찬” in Taipei and Seoul too.
ByungChan was chosen to become the model for “Icepray” and VICTON was also selected to endorse for “Just Bite”.
Needless to say, they became busy and even appeared on various events such as the recent “2019 Unicorn Concert“.
Just a day ago, they returned with their 5th mini album “nostalgia” and entered Melon Music Chart at 51st rank on Nov. 4, 7 pm KST statistic. The song peaked at 34th rank on Nov. 5, 7 am KST and their B-tracks had also entered the chart.
According to Hanteo Chart, VICTON had also sold more than 16,000 copies of “nostalgia” on the very first day!

Many who had seen the post on the online community were amazed by how far VICTON had grown and wished them all the best too.
They shared their thoughts and many mentioned that they felt like crying seeing how far and how much they have grown as a group. They wished that VICTON and ALICE would continue to walk flowery path together.
VICTON will be having their 1st comeback stage for ‘nostalgic night’ on Mnet “Mcountdown”.
