EPEX Ayden Pre-Debut
Like most Epex members, Ayden made his debut because he was able to pass the training program as a rookie. He trained in C9 Rookies, a rookie group made by C9 Entertainment. After he trained for several years, Ayden finally made his debut with other Epex members. Actually, the agency decided to release a new group with a name same to the rookie group. However, the agency felt that the group needed a new name. Therefore, the agency changed the group’s name to Epex, an abbreviation of Eight Apex.
Since Ayden joined C9 Rookies, he caught the attention of K-pop fans. This happened because many K-pop fans felt that his face is very similar to NCT’s Chinese member, Renjun. The fans also believe that both of them are very talented, and both of them have sharp-shaped teeth. This similarity is very visible, especially when Ayden smiles. Because of this condition, he felt optimistic about his debut with Epex since he already got major attention during his pre-debut era.
