Five boys with an average weight of 100 kg, officially became part of Produce Pandas as contracted trainees in 2019. Like ‘giant pandas’, the five members have made great progress all the way with their cute and handsome temperament as well as the strength of singing and dancing. Different from the usual slim pop stars of Asia, Produce Pandas are the fun, chubby 'boys next door' who will come over and help repair the neighbour’s light bulbs.
On October 15, 2020, Produce Pandas released its first album ‘A.S.I.A.’, which not only won more than 300 million BGM broadcasts and tens of millions of ‘likes’ for works on the current popular short video platforms; at the same time, it created the legend of the number one as the first single Chinese newcomer singing Chinese songs in the sales list of the overseas region's iTunes c-pop. The whole album ‘A.S.I.A.’ achieved good results in No.6 of global album sales and No.2 of pop music list in the Japanese region of iTunes. It also won a full-page exclusive interview with The Guardian in UK and fans from five continents. Its overseas social media platforms also reached an average of 3 million views per month.
During the concert, Produce Pandas released their new song ‘The Great Dream’ for the first time. This song was selected as a public welfare song by Beijing 51Give Socially Responsible Development Centre (51Give) and made into a MV for promotion. The MV was played at the concert. 51Give is honoured to have Produce Pandas as their ‘Charity Ambassadors’ and look forward to Produce Pandas sharing their culture of giving and social responsibility with their fans.
