Compared to youth on stage, nine teenagers showed faces that were more mature than before.
Before "To The Nines" was released, NINE PERCENT had experienced doubts about the musicality of the team for a long time. Captain Cai Xukun said that everyone had devoted a lot of time and energy to this album, and he was more willing to choose "slow work and good work" than to rush to leave work.
Today, the choice of NINE PERCENT is undoubtedly recognized. From market data, "To The Nines" has reached more than 8 million results after pre-sales of QQ music, cool dog music, cool music and microphone music before November 9.

As far as business cooperation is concerned, besides being friends with various brands that are popular with many consumers, this group of young people also has a number of supports. For example, Cai Xukun holds Yangshengtang masks and vivo X23 support. Chen Linong is a spokesman for Shiseido Waso Youth Day and series, the new Yanyang summer series. Prince is a spokesman for Schwarzkopf (Physics) … Besides individuals, groups also exist. Co-branding cooperation in the form of "small squad", such as You Changjing, Lin Yanjun and Prince Yi, together functioned as Tmall Wonders and so on.
Fashion and entertainment are not separate, and NINE PERCENT, who came with a group of loyal fans, often visited various magazines.

Fan Yi and Wang Zi also serve as "COSMO Fashion" and "Include publication characters like CHIC bourgeoisie small.

Returning to Aidou's position, in front of NINE PERCENT "To The Nines", the members have made various efforts in music.

Music works released by different members in various fields gave ordinary fans and fans the opportunity to truly feel the group's characteristics "lots of people and lots of colors". This is very important to make To The Nines. By allowing members to freely develop their respective music careers over the past six months, album producers have done a good job of harvesting the aesthetics and personality of each team's music, and knowing in advance how the market has a preference for timbre and singing. each one. .
This is a courageous effort by Ain PERCENT, which operates a combination of PERCENT NATAL, also a multi-company operation and game and capital.
Exploration of the Mode of the Local New Generation Youth League
There is no doubt that "Idol Trainee" is a phenomenal variety show, and NINE PERCENT from this stage is also born in the public eye. However, even the new generation team with a very high starting point, there are various operational difficulties.
For a while, the male team training mode in this program was only four months. Members from different companies and receiving completely different packaging operations were enough to make Aidou Century a headache. Although PERCENT NINE has been formed, members have completed the transition from competitors to teammates, but companies have different settings for their artist development, and are difficult to adjust on weekdays.
Aidou Century did not adopt a method of accelerating work in the period when the group was most topical, but chose to respect the members' self-requirements to complete the high-quality stage. In a previous interview, NINE PERCENT said that the preparation of "To The Nines" took three or four months. To ensure the effectiveness of the group stage, members who are at rest or busy will be able to practice as early or late as possible within the agreed time.
No doubt, this requires more time and money to operate a limited male team. Medieval Aidou made such a layout, and reached consensus with NINE PERCENT: Eternal and unpopular companies, but succeeded. In the male group market, which seems saturated and empty, quick success will only disappear quickly.
Previously, Chen Yuetian, an 85-year-old investor who had invested in SNH48 and original paintings, said: "There is a higher value for male groups and male stars in China than for actresses. There, but why does the men's team not come out ? Because everyone doesn't do it right. "
So, what is the right group of domestic men who fulfill public aspirations? Need to have the ability of Aidou indented business, more need to find a balance in peanuts love and business exposure, need to have an avant-garde personality attitude, but also need to have musical sincerity and stage, the most important is the "group" of Kata men's team
NINE PERCENT, a group of young men, gradually realized public expectations for an ideal team of domestic men.
