It is often said that it is quality and not quantity that matters, and this certainly proves true in the case of Cix. Even though the band was only formed in 2019, they have already dropped several hit singles as well as a successful EP. The five-member ensemble also holds the record for the second-fastest k-pop group to earn a music show win after their debut. They achieved this feat by winning SBS MTV’s The Show just seven days after their debut.
