A debut showcase was held along with the album’s release at the Yes24 Live Hall in Seoul which has a capacity of more than 1000.
The debut mini-album, “Light Us” hit number 1 in the United States and Australia and in Europe, the album charted in the top 10 K-Pop songs in Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom and Italy.
On January 10, 2019, Oneus made their Official Debut Stage on Mnet’s music program, M Countdown.
On March 11, it was announced that Ravn will temporarily halt group activities due to personal and health issues. Fortunately, by the end of April, he was able to rejoin as his health had improved a lot by then.
Oneus released their second EP Raise Us on May 29, 2019, with the lead single titled “Twilight”.
Oneus released their third EP Fly with Us on September 30, 2019, with the lead single titled “Lit”.
Oneus has also been a part of various reality shows from the start like ‘Trainee Real Life – We Will Debut S1 & S2‘ and ‘Cafeteria Oppa is in Business‘.

They have also released 2 hit Japanese Singles in a short span of just 1 year since their debut which is truly commendable!
Oneus has made a very noticeable and alluring first impression with their debut single, ‘Valkyrie‘ which features cool guitar rhythms and an electronic changeup for the chorus along with a perfect showcasing of the members’ individual talents.
With an exotic shooting in Italy’s elegant castles and meadows and a royal concept that has the boys all dressed in in princely suits match the ambiance, Oneus’s track “Twilight” again explores the realm of light as it makes use of dreamy and poetic lyrics, an addictive chorus and lightly higher-pitched rapping.
Another song to add to your “Oneus Playlist” is their latest release, “Lit” which combines the traditional instruments of Korean Music Industry with the modern sound instrumentals and EDM influences in a smooth and extremely cool manner.
This group might have just started a year back but at the level of progress they are making and the hard work they have put in to reach where they are now and where they strive to reach, it won’t be long before these boys will be counted as one of the successors of BTS in their quest for World Domination!
