The world of K-pop is more interesting than ever. The increasingly competitive K-pop industry is filled with a growing wave of young talent vying to make it to the top. Among them is Imfact, a five-member boy group under Star Empire Entertainment. They debuted on January 27, 2016, with the single Lollipop. Their name is a combination of ‘Impact’ and ‘I’m Fact’; to make a strong impact on the music industry and produce truthful music.
Imfact dropped their digital single NANANA and a music video for it on August 16, 2018. Earlier in the year, the group showed off their mature concepts with The Light in April of 2018. They continued that style with NANANA, incorporating EDM sounds into the song with lyrics talking about the struggle of the youth to achieve their dreams.
Imfact members live together so they don’t spend much time on their own. This had led to a group with members that are close to each other while also having fun.
