Cravity, a nine-member K-pop boy group under Starship Entertainment, is grateful to finally embark on their first world tour, but they draw on their determination to deliver “more explosive performances” on a “bigger stage” in the future.

The moment Serim, Allen, Jungmo, Woobin, Wonjin, Minhee, Hyeongjun, Taeyoung, and Seongmin stepped onstage, their expressions automatically shifted to focus as they delivered “bigger performances” for their dedicated legion of fans, also known as Luvitys.


“Even if we’re embarking on a world tour now, I imagine that maybe in a few years, we want to show bigger performances on a bigger stage — with Cravity’s own songs — for our fans,” Seongmin said.


Perhaps, this is one of the reasons why the boy group felt compelled to feel a sort of “greediness” to prove themselves why they deserve a spot among the industry’s greats. According to Wonjin, “greediness” shouldn’t have a negative undertone, as it also defines one’s determination which in their case, applies to them as performers.

“[Masterpiece] is our first world tour as Cravity, so this is why we, along with our label, we’re really concerned about showing each of our own strengths,” he added. “We’re greedy to prove ourselves, [and] to show what we have to offer in hopes of making our tour successful.”

Shy smiles, however, filled their faces when they admitted that they “know each other too much” now, as they were asked to share what they’ve learned about themselves while preparing for the tour. But some couldn’t help share a few behind-the-scenes stories, like how Taeyoung is “pretty sexy onstage,” or that Seongmin can be “very sweaty,” or that Woobin’s high notes can “even break through speakers and microphones.”

Cravity, said it is “really honored” to be in an era where K-pop is at its peak, revealed it initially “didn’t feel the support” as they debuted in April 2020, a time wherein the pandemic was at an all-time high. But as events returned in full-swing, the members realized how loved they truly are during their “performances and world tour.”

“[Those moments] made us realize that we do have a lot of fans, and it makes us happy knowing that,” Hyeonjun continued. Woobin, meanwhile, looked back at the group’s debut days, saying it sometimes surprises him that they “work hard too much.”


“We’re so grateful [for] the fans’ support. Even though we haven’t reached out to many international Luvitys, we still have a lot of Philippine fans and other fans in [different parts] of the world. They inspire us to work even harder,” Taeyoung further added.

As Allen himself pointed out, Philippines is considered as one of the countries who showered overwhelming support to Cravity since their debut, that seeing comments such as “mahal kita (I love you)” or “pogi (handsome)” makes them “hurry up” to meet their fans.

“When we do live broadcasts like in YouTube, we see comments like ‘mahal kita,’ or ‘pogi.’ And we feel like, ‘Wow, we have so many Philippine fans,” Allen said. “[Because of that, we [wanted] to hurry up and see them so badly because we know they have been waiting for us for a long time. We’re super glad to finally have the chance to come to the Philippines to see them.”

Despite knowing that they still have a long way to go, Cravity finds strength in recalling some of their most memorable moments in their career. When asked about sharing their favorite experiences as a K-pop idol, the members smiled as they let out a sigh, as if they’re trying to piece some of their favorite memories together.

While Seongmin said winning several rookie awards in 2020 were “very memorable” for him, Jungmo pointed out that taking part in varieties and winning in Korean music shows were his “favorite” moments.

Allen, on the other hand, revealed that sharing the stage with K-pop veterans SHINee at the “K-pop Lux SBS Super Concert” in Spain earlier this month is a moment that he’ll “remember for a long time.”

“I finally met the group that inspired me to become a K-pop star in the future, which is SHINee so it felt super amazing. It felt like a dream, honestly. I felt so nervous at that time. It truly felt so surreal because I am who I am now because of them, why I’m a member of Cravity, and that felt amazing,” he said.

Despite being in the industry for just three years, it’s clear that Cravity — who takes pride in their “bright image” — is setting their sights ahead, as if they’re eager to introduce themselves to the world through their music.

With feel-good tracks like “Adrenaline,” “Cloud 9,” “A to Z,” and the powerful “Veni Vidi Vici” and “My Turn” under their belt, Allen firmly stated that the boy group can be described as a “splash of paint with [different] colors.”

“If you can describe Cravity, I’d say it would be like a splash of paint with [different] colors on an oil canvas. We would like to describe our sound as that,” he continued, with a look of pride on his face. EDV
