2Yoon to challenge country pop for debut

4Minute’s new sub-unit, comprised of members Jiyoon and Gayoon joined forces with hitmakers Shinsadong Tiger, composer Kim Doo Hoon and songwriter Lee Sang Ho for their title track.

Rather than sticking to popular music, Gayoon and Jiyoon took on a new challenge for their debut under a new name, 2Yoon.

Country pop, a genre which hasn’t been tried out before and which will bring a fresh change to a Korean music scene dominated by addictive and generic tunes.

This trio of producers has been behind a number of hit tracks by 4Minute, such as “Hot Issue,” “For Muzik,” “Muzik, “Mirror Mirror,” and more recently “Volume Up” and “Love Tension.”

Yesterday, Cube Entertainment’s CEO stated that the upcoming 4Minute sub-unit would be called “2Yoon.”

A few weeks ago, pictures showing Gayoon and Jiyoon in the midst of a filming session surrounded by a farm set decor surfaced on Naver. Jiyoon then teased fans a bit more by tweeting a picture from that same set.

Meanwhile, 2Yoon are speculated to debut on the second week of January.

I'm not sure about this, but this is kpop. They'll say it's a certain genre and then watch the song end up sounding nothing like they said it would.

also, it is probably country because they used a bit of banjo and that was it.

Won't be shocked if upcoming answers for their inspiration would be Taylor Swift.

Jiyoon seems like the type to let people know if she doesn't like something so maybe this song won't be so bad if she had any creative input. Speaking of, I wonder if any of the songs she wrote are in this album?

it is only country if they add a steel pedal guitar in there. i'm not sure how i feel about this.
royu_kiyo 5th-Jan-2013 05:21 am (UTC)
Not a fan of country anything but who knows, maybe it will be the same ol' same ol' Kpop.

After watching Nashville I sorta dig country now.
So I'm down for this...
As long as I can pussy pop to it, but then again I can pussy pop to almost anything (gospel included).

Country pop is okay, not something I listen to but it could be worse.
noneko 5th-Jan-2013 05:54 pm (UTC)
I've never heard a country song made outside the US that wasn't atrocious, but good luck I guess.

I love how a couple of days ago this was a lie made up by fans, complete with fake tracklisting, and now it's legit? In any case, excited!
