With many old school idols like S.E.S. and Sechskies reuniting for new albums, NRG is also drawing attention as they will hold a fan meeting to celebrate their 19th year debut anniversary. 



Music Factory's producer Kim Tae Hyung , the person who discovered and produced the group, stated during an interview with OSEN on October 21, "[NRG] will be holding a 19th-year-anniversary fan event on October 22. Chinese fans have been especially supportive, helping them reunite." 


NRG, the first generation Hallyu star, still has many fans in China, and it was thanks to these fans that the fan meeting event was able to be put together. Both Korean and international fans are expected to fill a small theater that holds about 250 people as 3 of the members will be attending. Member Moon Sung Hoon is unable to attend due to personal issues.

Many fans are excited to hear the news of the fan meeting, speculating their official reunion for a new album. However, the producer responded, "I don't think it's the right time to discuss reunion. We will see how things go tomorrow [at the fan event]. It's just a chance for long-time fans and members to meet. There are no plans for official activities yet." 


Debuting in 1997, NRG gained popularity in Korea and beyond. In 2000, one of the members, Kim Hwan Sung, died suddenly, sending a shockwave to fans and others in the K-Pop world. However, the rest of the members continued on, maintaining the group. After their 2005 album 'No. 7,' the members have been focusing on their individual careers.

    As cool as that would be, because NRG's one of my favorites, I fear it won't be the same. I started listening to that old-school kpop in 2006-2007 and I loved it because there was a lot of rock and heavy guitar incorporated in those old school songs. Even if these old-school bands did come back and reunite, I fear its going to be more of this modern sound, which is pointless because there's already a bank of current boybands promoting this genre.
