OMEGA X made their debut on June 30th, 2021, with their first mini album Vamos.
Less than a year later, the rookie group received the Rookie of the Year award from the Seoul Music Awards in 2022.

The talented group recently sat down for an interview with the YouTube channel KOMO News where they told the interviewer about their hopes and goals for the future.
OMEGA X acknowledged that they were incredibly excited to have received the Rookie of the Year award since they all had previously stated that receiving the award was their main goal.
When asked about our goal, all 11 of us answered that we want to win the Rookie of the Year. Now that we have won it, we feel honored and happy. It was a very rewarding moment.
But, despite their ambition, OMEGA X didn’t actually believe they could win the award. And while they did prepare a speech since they were nominated, they didn’t expect to give it.
At first, we thought [our name being called] was a mistake. But knowing that we had been nominated, Jaehan, Sebin, and Yechan prepared a short speech just in case.
But, as Jehyun shares, now that they’ve achieved their previous goal, they will keep pushing forward to achieve new ones.
Rookie of the Year award was one of our early goals, so having that accomplished was very exciting. We will continue working hard to accomplish even bigger goals and dreams.
Hwichan is very excited to share OMEGA X’s first new goal: winning first place on music shows.
I think our next goal would be winning first place on music shows. Yes, that’s our closest goal. Number one on music shows.
But, even as Hwichan finishes voicing his enthusiasm for their new goal, he quickly amends that OMEGA X actually has a second goal too.
Oh, and we already won first place on Apple Music chart in the US. So our next goal is topping the Billboard chart.
And OMEGA X seems rather intent on continually challenging themselves, with Jehyun even adding two more goals for them to achieve, specifically at the end-of-year awards shows.
Now we have won the Rookie of the Year award, I think our next goal should be the Best Performance award and grand award.
