CIX is a boy group formed in 2019 by C9 Entertainment. It is composed of five members - Seunghun, BX, Bae Jinyoung, Yonghee and Hyunsuk. Jinyoung finished at the 10th place during the finals of the second season of a TV survival show Produce 101 and debuted as a member of Wanna One. BX was the 9th winner of the show Mix Nine and was set to debut with a new KPop group, but YG Entertainment eventually gave up with the idea. CIX eventually debuted on July 23, 2019 with their first extended play Hello Chapter 1: Hello, Stranger.
