2022–23: Pre-debut activities and formation


On September 7, 2022, executives from ABS-CBN, MLD Entertainment, and Kamp Global signed a deal to debut a Filipino boy band in South Korea.[1][2] The lineup of the boy band was determined through the reality survival show Dream Maker, which saw 62 contestants compete to become part of the band. At the end of the series' run, seven contestants were selected to form the lineup of Hori7on, which debuted on July 24, 2023.[3]

On April 23, 2023, MLD Entertainment announced that losing contestants Wilson Budoy, Macky Tuason, Josh Labing-isa, Thad Sune, and Jom Aceron, had signed with the agency as trainees.[4] In an interview with the entertainment website Kpopmap, MLD Entertainment CEO Lee Hyung-jin revealed that the quintet, then tentatively named as New MLD Boys, are preparing for a debut in South Korea before then "engaging in active promotions in the Philippines".[5]

2023–present: Introduction and forthcoming debut


The members of New:Id were featured on duets with the members of the Hori7on on their debut album, Friend-Ship.[6] In the accompanying concert for the album, Voyage To Manila, the quintet was formally introduced in their performance of a Filipino version of the 2012 DMTN single "E.R.", taken from the EP State of Emergency.[7][8] The social media accounts for the group were launched three days later, on September 13.[9][10]

Ahead of their official debut, the quintet released "E.R." as a pre-debut promotional single on September 22.[11]
