SB19 is a five-member Filipino boy band who debuted in 2018 and consists of Josh, Pablo, Stell, Ken, and Justin. They are trained for three years by ShowBT Philippines since 2016. They are also the first Filipino group in Billboard’s Next Big Sound chart as well as the first Southeast Asian act to enter the top 10 of Billboard Social 50 weekly and year-end charts.
SB19 promotes its music as part of Pinoy pop (P-pop) a popular sub-genre of original Filipino music.
The group’s name was taken from the initials of their Korean management company, ShowBT, while the number 19 was taken from the country codes of South Korea (82) and the Philippines (63), by adding the digits or by getting the numerical difference, signifying the strong bond between the two countries that led to the group’s creation. However, the members themselves came up with an alternative meaning, using the phrase “Sound Break” to make known their intention to break into the Philippine music industry and their aspiration to provide a higher standard for other Filipino idols to follow. Their group introduction, “Get in the zone, BREAK! Hi! We are SB19!” is also a reinforcement of their ambition to become the first Korean-trained Filipino idol group to represent the Philippines and the Filipino talent on a global scale.
