LC9 (Korean: 엘씨나인) was a South Korean pop boy band formed by Nega Network. The group initially consisted of six members until member E.Den left to pursue his studies. Their name, LC9, means League of Competition #9. They debuted on May 9, 2013 with “MaMa Beat” on Mnet M! Countdown. The music video was released on the same day.
On January 23, 2016, the group’s label announced that LC9 disbanded. Their contract wasn’t renewed back in December 21, 2015, which led the group to an end.
Around April, Nega Network announced that they would be debuting a male group, currently nicknamed Brown Eyed Boys inspired by their fellow label seniors Brown Eyed Girls. After a series of teasers introducing each of the members, they made their official debut as LC9 on May 9, 2013 with their first mini album Skirmish, with the title track “MaMa Beat” featuring label-mate Gain. On the same day, LC9 held their debut stage on Mnet M! Countdown.
On January 23, 2016, Nega Network revealed that the group’s contract ended on December 21 of the previous year. None of the members renewed their contracts, and LC9 dissolved as a result.
