ILLIT (아일릿; also stylized as :ll:+) is a five-member multinational girl group under Belift Lab. Formed through the JTBC reality show R U Next? and originally as six, they made their debut on March 25, 2024 with the mini album Super Real Me.

Their group name is derived from the phrase "I Will Be It". It is a group name that combines the autonomous and proactive will (I will) with the pronoun (It) that signifies something special. Depending on the verb that fits between the two words, it can become anything.
