Today, we are at the COEX MALL Live Plaza for the debut of UPVOTE Entertainment‘s group CICI 씨씨.
It is in front of a live audience that the group will make its debut.
To make us wait during the twenty minutes preceding the showcase, short interviews of the boys introducing themselves are broadcasted on a TV. We also see them doing covers, such as TXT’s one.
It is 3 PM in Seoul and the show starts with a short teaser before the stage performance of CICI 씨씨 first title: “CC“. Their first steps in public are very professional while facing some sounds problems.
The 4 boys, WON, SUNGHYUN, JL and HANEUL, introduce themselves quickly before posing in front of the professionals’ and the fans’ cameras for a phototime. They take the time to explain their name, CICI 씨씨, which is an onomatopoeia that expresses annoyance and frustration (with adequate gestures).
The group then performs a SHINee dance cover (Replay), which you have already seen during buskings in the streets of Seoul. Afterwards, we can admire the debut MV before the boys follow up with several performances: a cover of GFRIEND (Me gusta Tu) and a song without choreography (Rewind) … They finish by performing again on their debut song.
Next, the boys announce that if their MV reaches 100,000 views, they will publish a dance practice of them dressed as princesses.
Among the fans present, four of them win an autographed album after answering a quiz. Then, a high-touch event is organized.
The live broadcast ends, and for those who posted on Instagram a photo of the showcase, they can win a signed album and take a picture with the group before the showcase is really over.
