D-Crunch (Hangul: 디크런치) is a South Korean idol group formed by All-S Company in Seoul, South Korea. The group debuted on August 6, 2018, with the single album 0806. It followed up with its first mini-album M1112 (4colors) on November 12, 2018. The group consists of rappers O.V, Hyunho, Minhyuk, Chanyoung, Jungseung, and Dylan, and vocalists Hyunwook, Hyunoh, and Hyunwoo.
D-Crunch was formed under All-S company by Lee Jong-seok, producer of girl group Girl’s Day, and the members trained together for one year. D-Crunch compromises six rappers and three vocalists, headed by leaders O.V and Hyunwook.
D-Crunch released its debut single album 0806 and its lead single “Palace” on August 8. D-Crunch won the Focus Award at the 2018 Asia Artist Awards, its first within four months after debuting.
D-Crunch lays its foundations in hip hop music and tries to “deliver a message” through its lyrics. O.V, Hyunwook, and Hyunoh compromise the songwriting team G.I.G, which shapes the group’s music direction. Each member supplies ideas to the songwriters, which are further developed to fit the group’s style. Lee Jeong-yeon of The Dong-a Ilbo referred to the nonet as the “singer-songwriter idol group”. D-Crunch cites BTS as its role model.
