Korea's top singer and actor Rain asked his fans to support his new boy band MBLAQ that made its television debut Thursday. The five-member boy band is the first group he created and trained over the last two years.

In a note posted on his Web site, Rain said, ``I really thank you for the support you showed at MBLAQ's debut performance. Please continue to cheer them on and give more encouragement.''

The band made a debut performance at Rain's concert last week in Seoul.

Rain said he is pleased to have been engaged in producing works for the first time.

MBLAQ also made a television debut on a cable music channel ``M Countdown'' Thursday.

He said he was so pleased and happy that MBLAQ made a broadcasting debut, adding that it made him ``more nervous'' than when he himself started out.

The five-member boy band has swept various music charts with its first mini-album ``Just BLAQ,'' reaching No. 1 on several online and offline music charts, according to J. Tune Entertainment, the agency run by Rain.

The group's debut album contains the single ``Oh Yeah'' and three other songs, including ``G.O.O.D Luv'' and ``My Dream.''

MBLAQ is expected to bring a change to the K-pop music scene that has been dominated by girl groups.
