 C REAL's History

2011: Formation and debutedit

NAP Entertainment revealed, "We named the group in hopes that the girls will become 'more real' in their talents through time since they're so young now, but there is also the side reference to the food item. We thought of going with an innocent or R&B inspired name, but the netizens had a lot of fun with C-REAL since it's easy to remember and also fun."

Their debut albumRound 1was released the next day.

On November 2011, C-REAL started their Japanese career through a route different from their peers. Following their debut showcase, the girls put their future contract up for auction, signing with the label that provides the best conditions. Unlike other groups who sign with an agency before heading over, the girls will be using the ‘posting system’, a method favored by professional baseball players. Since their debut in October, the girls have been nicknamed as the ‘5- IU idols‘, which has generated enough interest notin only South Korea , but overseas as well. They have been receiving calls from Japan , which is how they came up with their idea for debut.

Not With Words.

C-REAL had their first magazine pictorial onMen's HealthDecember 2011 issue.
