History & The Boss Profile!

Dae Guk Nam Ah [DN-A / DGNA / The Boss]’s Profile

The Boss (often referred to as DGNA or (incorrectly) D-NA), is a South Korean boy band with five members, formed under Open World Entertainment in 2010. In South Korea they are known as Dae Guk Nam Ah, literally meaning ‘The Boys of Super Space’, which is how their English name of ‘The Boss’ was formed, which is mainly used outside of Korea. In Japan, they are known as Daikoku Danji (大國男兒). The boys have also said that they would like to be known as the ‘Younger Brothers of the Nation’.
All five members of The Boss were formerly members of Xing Entertainment and members of the generation band Xing (band) with different stage names. This means that all of the members, despite joining Xing at different times, are all talented and experienced in the Korean music industry.
Pre-debut and Xing
The original Xing was formed in 2006 with none of the members of The Boss. Famous members of the original Xing include Yong Jun Hyung who is now part of Cube Entertainment boyband Beast, as well as Kevin Woo and Kim Kibum, who are both now members of NHMedia boyband, U-KISS.Hyunmin replaced one of the original Xing members, Choi Sungsoo. In early 2008, the three remaining members of Xing were joined by the other three members of Xing Entertainment’s other band, Singing In The Rain (including The Boss member Mika) as well as a new special dance member, Jeon Jihwan (The Boss member Jay). After the only original remaining Xing member, Kevin, left the band, he was replaced by two new members, Park Hyunchul and Lee Injoon (both now The Boss members). All of the members of 4th generation Xing were replaced to create a 5th generation, and from there, The Boss members went to sign under Open World Entertainment to create a new boyband.
Originally, The Boss was meant to consist of seven members, including the other two members of 4th generation Xing (Kim Jisang and Shin Gwangchul), however, both chose not to go with the band for personal reasons.
