Pre-debut[]

In late November 2017, Daily H Boys opened their SNS accounts and introduced Hankook, Donghyun and Havit as their first members.[2] It was revealed later on July 4, 2018 that NH Media was planning to debut a nine-member boy group in September with Havit as one of the members.[3] However, the group went inactive on their SNS since April 2021.

On July 21, 2021, Interpark announced that they had established a subsidiary label, Interpark Music Plus, for their idol group production business. It was also revealed that the label is preparing to launch a new male idol group within the year.[4]

On July 28, 2021, the group's official SNS accounts were launched.[5] On July 31, INTER BOYS uploaded their first dance cover video, starting with Stray Kids' "Back Door".[6] A dance cover of Taemin's "Advice" by member 'D' was released on August 4, and SuperM's "Tiger Inside" by the full group on August 7.[7][8]

On August 9, 2021, Havit and Hankook were revealed as the group's first members.[9][10] This was followed by Yechan, Leon, and Eunil on the 10th.[11][12][13] Finally, ra.L and Yoonwoo were revealed on the 11th.[14][15]

Due to the news of LABOUM also moving to the label on September 9, 2021, and that INTER BOYS consists of six out of seven members of Daily H Boys, it is assumed that all Global H artists including trainees have moved to Interpark Music Plus.[16]

At the midnight of November 29, 2021, the group announced that they will be called TRENDZ and will make their debut in January 2022.[17]

On October 4, 2022, it was revealed that TRENDZ transferred back to Global H Media as Interpark Music Plus went out of business. The group also announced a November comeback collaborating with the composer and producer LEEZ.[22]

On October 24, TRENDZ announced that they will release their first single album, "Blue Set Chapter. Unknown Code", on November 3.[23] However, the album's release was postponed to November 12 out of respect for the victims in the Itaewon Halloween crowd crush incident on the 29th.[24]
