ASTRO is a six-member boy group that has gained popularity for their high visual appeal and the star power of each individual member. Appearing in WEB dramas since even before their debut, they made their long-awaited debut in Korea in 2016. ASTRO’s unique and refreshing concept has attracted fans from around the world and in 2020, their first online concert “2020 ASTRO LIVE on WWW.” was distributed worldwide.
In 2021, ASTRO released their 2nd Full Album “All Yours” (No.1 on the Korean version of the Oricon Weekly Chart) and 8th Mini Album “SWITCH ON” (No.2 on the Korean version of the Oricon Weekly Chart). They have proved their popularity in Japan as well.

They pursue their music activities with a constant attitude of care for their fans, and they are continuing to attract fans from all over the world.
Last year, ASTRO distributed and released two songs through HIAN’s label, “All Good-JP Ver.” (insert song for TOKYO MX’s “Kazuhiro Teranishi Drama – Jinsei Iroiro”) and “Ichiban Suki na Hito ni Sayonara wo Iou” (theme song for Shinji Nojima-scripted FOD drama “Eroi Kareshi ga Watashi wo Madowasu”).
Many Japanese fans have expressed a strong desire to see the groups activities in Japan, and now through joining forces with HIAN, their activities in Japan are expected to increase even more.
