This group debuted at the 2009 New Year concert “My First Dream” held at the JCB Hall in Tokyo, Japan on January 2, 2009. JongHun performed as the guitarist and a sub-vocalist. The group’s name was “A3” due to each of the three members having type A blood.

They released the single “Love Letter” and began performing on music shows. During this time, F.T.
