Moon Bin debuted in 2016 as a member of the six-member boyband Astro. The band was formed not long after the singers participated in a singing competition on television.
The band soon achieved fame in South Korea and Japan, and in that same year, Billboard ranked them in the top 10 of its list of new K-pop groups, praising them for their “bright, synthpop sound that won over K-pop lovers from around the world.”

Moonbin revealed to his followers that he had been going through a terrible time during a recent concert, which occurred when he was on the “Diffusion” tour with Sanha to promote the duo’s most recent EP record, as reported by a Korean broadcasting company. He also said in a live broadcast over social media that:
“I want to confess one thing, I’m actually feeling really bad. There might have been a lot of signs from which people could notice since the concert started, so I’m also very sorry to you guys. I’m working out and trying to pick up things that I’ve left little by little. I chose this job so I need to be happy so that I can make fans happy as well.”
The Indonesian event promoter Lumina Entertainment announced on Wednesday that the performance by the duo was canceled in Jakarta owing to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control.
