A New-School, Charismatic Team Consisting of Three Diverse Members

Team Profile
A team made up of three students who all attend the same private international university. They believe in living their lives as they see fit, without being constrained by stereotypes or conventional wisdom. They live together in a luxury apartment owned by Hajun. They specialize in genre-blending, cutting-edge hiphop that blends Japanese, English, and Korean lyrics and trends.

Team Backstory
All of them met in high school; Hajun was present while Allen was practicing rapping at school after school hours, and the two decided to rap together. Anne later encountered them the same way, and the three of them felt that they had similar vibes and began working as a team. By the time they were all in university, they began their activity as BAE.
