Rain first released a photo of the new boy group ciipher on his Instagram account at noon on December 10, calling them "RAIN Company's first boy band".
In the released photos, familiar faces such as Park Sung Won from 'Under Nineteen', Gil Do Hwan from 'YG Treasure Box', Moon Hyun Bin from 'Produce 101' and Choi Seok Won from 'No. Mercy' stand out, drawing attention on the upcoming rookie boy group.
According to officials, ciipher has been preparing for their debut for about three years, and includes a number of members who have been competitors at audition programs and trainees at large agencies.
Earlier, Rain was recognized for his ability by producing boy group MBLAQ and others. Expectations are high on what the boy group ciipher will look like after Rain comes back as a producer after a long time.
