KQ went on to release a series of videos on YouTube called “KQ Fellaz American Training”, which featured the nine boys practicing in Los Angeles, California USA.
The final video in the series was uploaded on 3 July 2018, and featured the boys singing their original song “From”, while it was also announced in the video that Lee Junyoung wouldn’t be part of the official group, making ATEEZ an eight-boy group. On 20 July 2018, the show “Code Name is ATEEZ” began airing on Mnet, serving as an advertisement for the group ATEEZ’s official launch.

Love life and girlfriend
Kang hasn’t talked about any girls he might have dated since the launch of his singing career, and this is normal as KQ Entertainment has put a dating ban on members of ATEEZ, while the boys also aren’t allowed to smoke, drink alcohol nor undergo plastic surgery.
Kang has, however, talked about his ideal type of a girl, to be someone who always puts other people’s needs in front of hers, because he believes he is that kind of a guy who would always think of her before thinking of himself. There are rumors circulating the internet that he was in a relationship while attending high school, and that he broke up with the girl shortly before he was made a member of ATEEZ.
As of July 2020, Kang is single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
