How Old Are the Boy Story Members?

The K-pop industry is known for debuting idols at younger ages, but when JYP Entertainment created its first Chinese pop group with Boy Story, it went really literal with its titular boys. The members ranged between the ages of 10 and 13 when they released their first song! Boy Story released their first song, “HOW OLD R U,” on September 1, 2017, and Boy Story officially debuted on September 21, 2018 with mini-album ENOUGH. To learn exactly how old the Boy Story members are right now, here is the current age and birthday for Hanyu, Zihao, Xinlong, Zeyu, Mingrui, and Shuyang (plus how young they were at debut age).

Current Age & Birthday to Explain How Old Boy Story Members Are

  • Hanyu is 19 years old and was born on May 20, 2004.
  • Zihao is 19 years old and was born on October 22, 2004.
  • Xinlong is 19 years old and was born on March 11, 2005.
  • Zeyu is 18 years old and was born on December 24, 2005.
  • Mingrui is 17 years old and was born on August 28, 2006.
  • Shuyang is 16 years old and was born on April 24, 2007.

This means that, at the time that Boy Story released “HOW OLD R U” in September 2017, the members were the following ages: Hanyu was 13, Zihao was 12, Xinlong was 12, Zeyu was 11, Mingrui was newly 11, and Shuyang was 10. When they fully debuted in September 2018, Hanyu was 14, Zihao was 13, Xinlong was 13, Zeyu was 12, Mingrui was 12, and Shuyang was 11. In K-pop, it’s extremely rare for an idol to debut in a group below the age of 14, (Examples include Jieun in Young Posse and Seowon in UNIS.) so JYP creating a group out of such young boys was certainly different. Some inspiration for this may have been taken from Chinese boy group TFBoys, who also debuted at younger ages in 2013 and had seen tremendous success since then.

Using K-pop terminology, Shuyang is the maknae of Boy Story, meaning he is the youngest member. Meanwhile, Hanyu is the oldest member of Boy Story and also its leader.
