Kep1er is really making name for themselves in the K-pop industry after having a very successful debut with their first album, ‘First Impact’. The nine-member girl group has now bagged their first music show win at Mnet’s 'M Countdown' show. Kep1er performed ‘Wa Da Da’ from their debut mini-album that was released on January 3.

Kep1er's performance on January 13 on the Mnet music show wowed audiences as they went head-to-head with contemporary rookie group IVE who made their debut with the single album ‘Eleven’ back in December 2021.
