15& (Korean: 피프틴앤드) is a South Korean duo signed under JYP Entertainment that debuted in 2012. The duo consists of Park Jimin and Baek Yerin. 15& is a combination of their ages and the ‘and’ means that they can have success into the future. They released their debut single “I Dream” on October 5, 2012.

History

Pre-debut

In 2012, Park Jimin was the first place winner of the South Korean reality TV competition, “Survival K-Pop Star“. With the opportunity of signing with three major record labels (YG Entertainment, SM Entertainment and JYP Entertainment), it was reported by SBS that she had chosen to sign with JYP Entertainment on May 21.

When Baek Yerin was ten years old, she was introduced as a “R&B genius” on Star King. In 2008, she auditioned with Beyoncé’s “Listen” and was accepted as a trainee at the same time as 2PM‘s Wooyoung and Beast‘s Doo-joon. Yerin had been a JYP trainee for over four years before she officially debuted with Jimin.

2012: Debut

On October 5th, 15& released their first digital single “I Dream” and its music video on YouTube. On October 7, they made their first stage debut on Inkigayo.

On the afternoon of October 12, 15& held their ‘school attack’ guerrilla concerts. The girls made their first stop at the Chungdam Middle School, followed by Eonnam Middle School at 3 pm, Sungil Information High School at 5 pm, and Dankook University at 8:40 pm. For a total of eight hours, 15& held a surprise concert at each school, performing their debut song and their cover versions of Alicia Keys‘s “Put It in a Love Song“, and Sistar19‘s “Ma Boy“. The concerts were hosted by KT‘s digital music application, and ‘Genie‘. The event attracted a total of 5,000 in attendance. Not only the students who attended the schools were there, but also the citizens living nearby who heard the news of the free concert.
