NU’EST – generasia

NU’EST (뉴이스트) was a Korean pop 5-member boy group that debuted in 2012 under PLEDIS. In December 2011, three NU’EST members (known at the time as Pledis Boys) were featured on the single “HAPPY PLEDIS 2012 ‘LOVE LETTER'”. The group’ name stands for “New Establish Style Tempo”. In Japan, the group signed with Sony Music Japan’s sub-label Ariola Japan.

In 2017, all members of the group, except for Aron, participated to Mnet’s reality show Produce 101 Season 2. All of them made to the top 20 but only Minhyun made it to top 11 and debuted with Wanna One. Due to their contract not allowing the Wanna One members to promote outside the group for 18 months, NU’EST promoted as 4 under the name NU’EST W (with W meaning waiting for Minhyun to return).

They officially disbanded on their 10th Anniversary on March 15, 2022.
