SM☆SH - intro post

 SMASH (스매쉬/SM☆SH) is a Korean boygroup who debuted in 2008 under ex. H.O.T. member Tony An’s TN Entertainment.
Smash was one of the most anticipated rookies when they debuted but after their Open Fire! -mini album and digital single White Night and when Tony An enlisted, group "faded away".
And they went, of course, to Japan in 2009 and been there ever since.

 They had 6 members but after doing some lives in Japan with the group, Cheonwoo left in 2010 (no reason given) and group continued with 5 members.

 In October 2010 the group made it’s major Japanese debut with a release of a single Lunatic. Smash has been gaining popularity in Japan and done many concerts & events, appeared on shows like Made in BS Japan. With their latest single STEP, they got 8th place on Oricon weekly on it's first week.

 Smash has been traveling between Japan and Korea a lot and been preparing for a Korean comeback.
That was supposed to happen by the end of 2011 year but it's been pushed back. Now it's been scheduled to happen sometime in 2012.

 March 2012 Smash finally came back to Korea, by releasing a coupling single together with Tony An called 'Get your swag on'. First performance was on Mnet M! Countdown 1st March. For this comeback, members started to use their real names, except Hero.
