FNC Entertainment's upcoming seven-member boy band will debut in November, earlier than originally announced, with two "Boys Planet" participants.

"Na Kamden and Choi Ji-ho will be joining our upcoming seven-member boy band; the boy band is currently in preparation to make its debut in November," the agency said in a press release Tuesday.

FNC Entertainment said earlier this month that the new boy band will debut early next year.

Na and Choi both joined cable network Mnet's boy band audition program "Boys Planet." While they did not make it to the final nine members to form the project boy band ZeroBaseOne, Na came 17th on the final episode, and Choi also gained popularity during the show.

FNC Entertainment, founded in 2006, is home to many bands and artists, including K-pop rock bands FTIsland, CNBLUE, N.Flying and Hi-Fi Un!Corn, boy band SF9, entertainer Noh Hong-chul, Moon Se-yoon and more. The agency was best known as entertainer Yu Jae-seok and girl group AOA's former agency.

The upcoming boy band will be FNC Entertainment's first boy band since P1Harmony, which debuted in October 2020.
