BGYO (pronounced as B-G-Y-O), formerly known as Star Hunt Academy Boys or SHA Boys,[2] is a five-member Filipino boy group that began formation in 2018 by ABS-CBN Star Hunt Academy and debuted in 2021 under ABS-CBN's Star Magic. The quintet—composed of Akira, Gelo, JL, Mikki, and Nate—co-writes several of their output. Their lyrics, often focused on social issues relevant to young generation, hope, youth empowerment and self-love.[3] Acclaimed as the "Aces of P-pop"[4] and the first Filipino Pop group to have their own topic on Twitter.[5]

After debuting in 2021 with their single The Light,[6] BGYO released their first multi-lingual studio album The Light.[7] They are the first Filipino act charted at number one[8] and the fifth Filipino artist to appear on the weekly Billboard Next Big Sound chart.[9][10]


BGYO showing off their official hand sign

The group's name is an acronym for "Becoming the change, Going further, You and I, Originally Filipino".[11][12] Contrary to the belief of many, the group's name is not the shortened form of the Filipino word "bagyo", which means storm particularly a tropical cyclone.[2] Their fandom name is collectively called ACEs chosen unanimously by the members among entries from fans.[13][14]

Their name (which is similarly spelled to "bagyo" or the Tagalog word for "storm") is more than appropriate since this group is definitely poised to take the P-pop industry by storm.

— Kyzia Maramara,[15]

SHA Boys became BGYO, a name that completely makes sense, given the group's beating pace.

— JE CC,[16]

we don’t blame you for thinking [BGYO as "bagyo"] so as these boys are without a doubt taking our local music scene by storm!

— Bianca Custodio, Candymag[17]


2018–2020: Formation and introductionEdit

In 2018, ABS-CBN launched the Star Hunt Academy program, a project led by entertainment head Laurenti Dyogi for the purpose of introducing Filipino talent in the international market.[18][19][20] 250 auditionees with age range of 16–19 from different places in the Philippines were evaluated, from which the first set of male trainees were selected. It was initially planned to debut a 7-member idol boy group but was minimized to five. The final lineup ended with Akira, Gelo, JL, Mikki, and Nate.[18][21] They were trained for two years under Filipino and South Korean mentors from MU Doctor Academy. Vocal coach Kitchy Molina and Austrian-native dance coach Mickey Perz were some of the notable Filipino mentors.[22][18][3]

On August 3, 2019, the five members were officially introduced as the Star Hunt trainees in the online pre-show of the PBB Otso Big Night through a performance.[23] They had their first outdoor performance with live audience in their first-ever mall show in Taguig.[24] They have also attended in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games thanksgiving celebration.[25]

In May 2020, Dyogi released a dance practice video of Akira, Gelo, Mikki, and Nate dancing to Seventeen's "Let Me Hear You Say" to show their progress in training.[26] In the subsequent months, the academy have released vlogs of the trainees on YouTube and performance videos on Twitter.[27] On December 4, 2020, the official debut month of the group in January 2021 was announced, together with the contract signing with Star Magic and record label Star Music.[28][29]

2021-present: Debut year and "The Light Era"Edit

BGYO official logo

Ahead of the debut date, Star Hunt Academy released a series of teasers for the group which on January 13, 2021, they revealed the group's official name accompanied with its official logo.[30][29]

MU Doctor collaborated with South Korean producers Rogan & Ddank for BGYO's debut single "The Light" released on January 29, 2021. The English lyrics were written by Korean-American composer and songwriter Distract, and the Tagalog lyrics written by the members themselves to "reflect their own story in the song".[3] The single was choreographed by Lay Back, known to have worked with SuperM, Hyolyn, and Zico.[31][32]

In March, BGYO was featured in the Spring 2021 issue of L'Officiel.[33] BGYO also participated in the collaborative virtual show of ABS-CBN along with other "Kapamilya stars" broadcast through Kumu and Facebook.[34][35] On March 31, MYX announced the group as their "spotlight artist" for the month of April.[36]

On April 9, Star Music officially confirmed that BGYO will sing the official soundtrack of iWantTFC's digital Philippine romance comedy series He's Into Her.[37] On April 21, BGYO performed on the Wish 107.5 Bus with their debut single.[38] On April 23, 2021, the second single He's Into Her has been sent to digital streaming and download platforms with a lyric and music video uploaded on YouTube.[39][40] On the same day, BGYO was added on the roster of Spotify RADAR program.[41]

The group's first collaboration single "Feel Good Pilipinas" was released on May 21, 2021, with KZ Tandingan which was produced as ABS-CBN's 2021 Summer Special ID.[42]

On May 17, BGYO participated in the 4th Season of Coke Studio Philippines' "Itodo Mo Beat Mo" where they performed the choreographed rendition of Keiko Necesario's "While We Are Young".[43][44] Three days after, an original composition of BGYO and Necesario titled "Runnin'" was uploaded on YouTube.[45] On May 29, the group also took part on the virtual red carpet premiere of the series He's Into Her.[46]

On June 6, "BGYO Live Zoom Party" took place.[47] It was a virtual international fan meet, held via Zoom and was organized by K-Wave By. Marie INC. and TimelessNotes LIVE,[48] where they performed The Light, "He's Into Her" and a cover of the song Un Año by the Colombian singer-songwriter Sebastián Yatra and the Mexican pop rock band Reik.[49][50] They also got the chance to be interviewed on SBS PopAsia on June 10.[51] The group also made an appearance on the official debut of their sister group BINI, on June 11.[52]

In July, BGYO fronted "The Music Issue" of PARCINQ Magazine with the tagline "P-POP POWER".[4]

On August 20, BGYO released their sophomore single The Baddest.[53] On August 25, #BGYO was included on Twitter's "Top Hashtags in the Philippines" for the first half of 2021.[54]


BGYO have cited BTS, Exo, GOT7, Wanna One, Seventeen, NCT, WayV, Stray Kids, TXT, Treasure, Big Bang, Twice, Shawn Mendes, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, Kendrick Lamar, Gary Valenciano, Iñigo Pascual, Erik Santos and Regine Velasquez as musical inspirations.[55][56][57] In an interview with Myx Global,[58] the group have also cited Jabbawockeez as an influence, with Nate saying "the Jabbawockeez inspired me to get into music, and would even copy how they would dance".[59]

Legacy and cultural impactEdit


BGYO's emergence in the music industry came in the midst of a gut-wrenching pandemic and in an era where Filipinos have already taken inspiration from emotional songs (in Tagalog slang "hugot songs"), BGYO does not pull off an effort to take a different lane to inspire many people through their motivational songs based on their triumphant journey to success, with JE CC of Lionheartv described The Light album as powerful, inspiring, anthemic; calling it "a refreshing scene in a very vulnerable time".[60] Tessa Mauricio-Arriola, Editor for Entertainment, Lifestyle and STM of The Manila Times noted that "BGYO emerge as an entire popstar package [despite] pandemic".[61] Aside from their music, BGYO are known as idols pursuing their studies amidst their growing career with Bianca Custodio of Candymag elaborated in an article, saying "the fact that they’re doing all of this while studying only demonstrates how disciplined and determined these boys really are. We stan men who are both beauty and brains!".[17][62]

No idea what kind of spell they've been putting, but when the category is freshness, BGYO is undeniably one of the peak stars.

— John Alfred Esmilla,[63]

Cultural impactEdit

As early as their trainee days, BGYO as "SHA Boys" became the youth ambassadors of the National Youth Commission.[25] In their debut year, BGYO were dubbed as the "Aces of P-pop"[4] and considered as "P-pop's Breakout Act of 2021",[64] known for notable vocals, synchronized dance moves,[27][65] commanding stage presence, and undeniable visuals.[64] with John Alfred Esmilla of Villagepipol calling BGYO "as The Baddest performers".[63] Tessa Mauricio-Arriola, Editor for Entertainment, Lifestyle and STM of The Manila Times explained "they have the makings of OPM superstars... can genuinely serve as role models for today's youth".[61] Similar sentiments with the editor-in-chief of the Xpedition Magazine, Josh M. Yugen, stressing BGYO as "a true role model for the modern youth".[66]

Since their official debut as BGYO in January, the group has boarded the train of success to achieve career-defining moments. Like a genuine storm, BGYO made a number of record-setting landfalls; each representing a mammoth victory in their glorious ascent as one of the country’s fastest rising P-Pop groups.

— JE CC, RAWR Magazine[67]

As the youngest people on the set, the boys made sure to introduce themselves to the crew, breaking that wall of intimidation from their recognizable fame, their overwhelming visuals and talent, balanced with their readiness and professionalism, that would make you think they've been doing this for years. These five boys always have their (handsome) game faces when working. Saying their goodbyes and a cheer-y "1,2 Thank you po!" to the whole staff, BGYO brings a different kind of energy wherever they go, and it's a youthful vibe that we love.

— Katie Rojas, PARCINQ Magazine[4]

Pinaghihirapan talaga nila. Kahit may sakit. They have the right attitude, behavior, they’re very humble. Hindi sila demanding [at] mareklamo. Nag-aaral lahat yan. We’re very proud that Aki is a dean’s lister. Talagang kahanga-hanga yung ginagawa nila.

— Laurenti Dyogi, Dailypedia[68]

In less than a year, their milestones and recognitions are overflowing, [BGYO] just bagged the "Best Theme Song" for He's Into Her at the 2021 Asian Academy Creative Awards [and] eventually a consistent spot holder at both global charts, Billboard's Next Big Sound and Next Big Sound's Pandora Predictions Chart.

— John Alfred Esmilla,[63]
