The seven members ENHYPEN–Heesung, Jay, Jake, Sunghoon, Sunoo, Jungwon and Ni-ki–are garnering massive attention and followers as they near their debut by the end of the year. 

“ENGENE” membership application is open year-round on the membership page of the “Weverse Shop” app and membership is valid for one year from the date of application. 

Members of “ENGENE” will receive various benefits, including a mobile membership card, access to presale (early reservation) tickets and lottery benefits for ENHYPEN concerts, opportunities to apply to attend open broadcasts and purchase exclusive official merchandise.

Also, membership-only contents such as photos, audio, and videos of ENHYPEN will be uploaded on the “Weverse” app as well as a one-time opportunity to purchase a membership kit within the membership period, which includes a physical membership card and photo book. 

Earlybird members will receive special benefits and those who join by Oct. 31 will have their membership extended until Oct. 31, 2021, or a membership extension of up to 20 days depending on the date they applied. 

“ENGENE” was selected by ENHYPEN members themselves from 67,000 entries sent to ENHYPEN’s “Fan Clube Naming Event” held from Sept. 20 to 24. 

ENHYPEN will be the first group to debut under Belift Lab, a joint venture between Big Hit Entertainment and CJ ENM. 

They have millions of followers on their social media accounts including 3 million on the WeVerse app, 1.8 million on TikTok, 1.1 million on Instagram, 1.1 million on ENHYPEN members’ account on Twitter and 960,000 subscribers on YouTube.
