    When referring to a team or an idol group as *insert number here * 인*insert number here *색 such as 9인9색,4인4색.What does this mean?I think it may mean 9 for 9 or 4 for 4 but I want to make sure.Thanks you in advance for all help.

    9인 = 9 people.
    9색 = 9 (distinct) colors.

    So it's advertising that an idol group is composed of 9 people and that each members possess distinct color or character or talent without much overlapping.
    Basically it means the the group has a lot to offer.
