With the new comeback, CANVAS, there has been a flood of new fans who may or may not still be getting used to Nu’est. So here’s a small guide to help you all get better acquainted with the five Knights.
NU’EST stands for New Established Style and Tempo. Formed in 2012, they became the first boy group by Pledis Entertainment and garnered one of the most viewed KPop Debuts in history (recently surpassed by Twice) with FACE at a current total of over 51 million views and counting.
It occurred to me while listening to Love Paint, that the reason we have such difficulty classifying what type of song Overcome is….(is it a ballad? No…theres a hard beat there…is it just r&b? Yes but no…) is because our boys have done it.
They are living up to their name and established their very own, uniquely Nu'est style that defies classification. Whether they win or not, they’ve won because they finally have a hand in what theyre writing and producing. Everyone contributed something somewhere. Baekho and Min with writing, JR with raps, Aron with some styling and writing, and Ren helping with art direction. They’ve reinvented themselves with every comeback, but now is their time to show the world who they are…and its vivid, artistic, and beautiful.
