History

2012: Pre-debut

Prior to their debut as a subgroup, the duo had performed new songs such as "Crying" and "You Look Good" during Infinite's concerts and had already received much attention. Although they had been releasing new songs during concerts, Woollim Entertainment only announced that they will be promoting as a sub-unit in 2013 after finishing up with Infinite's activities in Japan.[2] They also performed, "Without You", a song from their debut album at the “Infinite Concert That Summer” on August 8, 2012. On December 20, 2012, they performed for the first time as a duo on M! Countdown for a special stage.

2013 to 2014: Debut with Fly High and Alone

On January 11, 2013, their debut EP Fly High was officially released. The duo started promotions for the album on January 10, 2013 on M! Countdown.

On February 28 and March 1, 2014, during Infinite's encore concert, "One Great Step Returns", Infinite H performed a new song "Alone", with the lyrics written by the duo.[3] The song was later added to Infinite's second full album, Season 2.[4]

2015: Fly Again

On January 26, 2015, the duo made their comeback after two years with the release of their second EP, Fly Again. They also held a press conference and a showcase on the same day at AX Korea, in Seoul.[5][6] Promotions for the album started on January 31, on M! Countdown and Music Bank.
