My Name to Debut as Manga Characters in Japan
My Name will be meeting its fans in Japan as manga characters just before its debut in the country.
The My Name members Gunwoo, Insoo, Seyong, JunQ and Chaejin will appear as themselves in the manga Starting to Live with Princes, which will be serialized in the biweekly manga magazine Sho-Comi.
Sho-Comi is a popular romance manga magazine that mostly appeals to female middle school and high school student audiences.
Starting to Live with Princes will be about what happens when the five members of My Name start to live with a lovely female lead.
The manga will combine fiction with non-fictional events in My Name’s lives as a celebrity, and will center on Seyong for its first episode, set for release on July 5.
The editor for Sho-Comi said on the manga, “I believed it would be fun to draw a manga about My Name, a K-Pop idol that has placed itself at the center of the new Korean wave. I also thought the My Name members’ looks and personalities would look perfect as the leads of a manga.”
In Korea, My Name recently released its first single album MYNAME 1st Single and has been promoting its first single cut Hello & Goodbye.
