MAJORS: Members, Songs, Debut & Albums
MAJORS is a K-pop girl group under ANS Entertainment that debuted on March 9, 2021, with members Vita, Bian, Ida, Aki, Suzy, and Shinye. At the time of its debut, it was a six-member group; however, over time, four members have officially left the group, and another member has not confirmed her departure from the group yet.
MAJORS had released three single albums titled: The Beginning of Legend, The Beginning of Legend – Rising Star, and The Beginning of Legend – Shining Star. The first two single albums have two songs each, and the third single album, which is also their first English EP, has three tracks. The surprising factor is all these three single albums were released in the same year, 2021.
On March 28, 2022, MAJORS released a digital single with two tracks called ‘The End of Chaos’, which were promoted as a four-member group since the current two members were not a part of the promotional activities. The digital single had two songs, ‘Salute’ and ‘Giddy Up’.
Kim Jimin, or Vita, is the Main Rapper and the Lead Dancer of the group MAJORS. She was born on February 3, 2000, and was brought up in Seoul, the capital of South Korea. Vita is also 168 cm tall, which makes her the tallest member of the group, along with former member Aki. Her MBTI type is an INTP. She has been a part of the ANS Entertainment family since the year 2000 in the month of February. Vita has previously mentioned that one of the people she looks up to is SOMI. Along with Korean, Vita can also speak English.
Jimin’s stage name emerges from the word ‘Vitamin’ as she is someone who can make people happy and give them strength. Alongside her killer visuals, Vita is a multi-talented artist who is also a multi-instrumentalist. From the violin to the flute to the piano, you name it, and she can play it. With her charming visuals, she has also been a cheerleader during her school days. She has an English name, and that is Pauline. If she were to pick who she is the closest to in the group MAJORS, that would be Bian.
She cherishes her fans, who she lovingly calls, MVPs wholeheartedly. She enjoys food, and her favorite cuisine amongst all is French cuisine in particular. On May 25, 2022, it was announced that she would be going on an indefinite hiatus, however, she later started posting on social media on July 27, 2022.
Yu Jiwon, or Bian, is the Main Vocalist and Main Dancer of the girl group MAJORS. She was born on February 13, 2001, in Seoul in South Korea. She is an alumni of Incheon Seocang Middle School and Incheon Financial High School. Even though Bian debuted with MAJORS on March 9, 2021, her journey with K-pop began before that. Her debut with MAJORS was not her first debut, instead, she first debuted with ANS, which was a girl group of ANS Entertainment, back in September 2019.
However, ANS disbanded soon in August 2020. Bian did not stop there with her debuts. Before all of this, she was a pre-debut member of the group MIDNIGHT which debuted with a song, but Bian ended up quitting the group because of the controversies that one single song caused. After re-debuting as Bian, she has been a part of MAJORS ever since.
Bian has visuals to die for and this reflects in her plans to become a model. To make this plan a reality, the Seoul-born girl has signed a contract with a Chinese company called ‘Haiwen’. Bian wants to pursue this as a part of her career in the entertainment industry. When one day Jiwon suddenly just removed ‘MAJORS’ from all her social media bios, the fans got concerned wondering if the 22-year-old has thought of leaving the group. Since she also unfollowed all her members at MAJORS, the media and the fans have assumed that she has quit the group for reasons not disclosed yet.
Jiwon’s mother took a stand for her daughter and took to Instagram posting that Bian is just a memory; she will be Jiwon from now on. After the disbandment of ANS, when most members had left the company, Jiwon was made to join the group MAJORS that was to debut right after some time of ANS’ disbandment. She was one of the idols to have been moved from one group to another.
Koh Chaeyoung, or Ida, is the former Leader and Sub Vocalist of MAJORS. She was born on May 19, 2000 and is from Seoul in South Korea.
She is 163 cm tall, and her MBTI type is an INTP and the 23-year-old also is a big fan of cats and has a ginger pet cat whom she treasures. Along with being a backup dancer for a duo called 2NYNE, the Seoul-born is also friends with idols in the same industry and one of them is Youngheun who is the former Blackswan member.
Ida went to Kukje University and as someone who sees their future in music and wants to hone her skills, she opted out of the group so that she could get better at her craft and that would be possible by going to a music school or joining a course that teaches the nitty-gritties of the same. Hence, on April 24, 2023 Ida left MAJORS so that she could concentrate on her college studies which would involve music.

Aki is insanely talented and can play the guitar and the piano, and she has trained for only three months to debut as a member of MAJORS. She has previously mentioned in an interview that (G)-IDLE’s Soyeon is someone she looks up to and calls her role model because when Soyeon reposted a cover that Minju did of the song BEAM BEAM, it was the happiest day she had ever lived, as Aki said herself.
