Introducing: Cross Gene

Cross Gene is an Asian Global Unit of 6 members from Japan, South Korea and China.

Cross Gene

Cross Gene made their Korean presentation in June 2012 with “La-Di Da-Di” (written by DJ Franke and choreographed by top Japanese dancer Kento Mori).

It is quite interesting that they incorporated various Asian martial arts moves into their dance. And just so you know, they will make their debut in Japan in March 2013 with “Shooting Star” as a digital single.
