More information about D-unit's new member

What we know about D-Unit’s new member!

  • She is a model and former child actress

  • She’s 16 (presumably in Korean years) making her one of the youngest in the industry right now

  • She has Block B Zico’s approval and recommendation

  • She’s “very beautiful”

D-Unit’s second album will be released on March 4th! It will apparently contain a total of 22 tracks.

im guessing shes going to be the visual of the group who wont really have a talent :[
gee 26th-Feb-2013 04:15 pm (UTC)
I don't see the point in this. D-Unit is great as is. They are all talented, so why drag them down with someone who isn't lol. Still looking forward to the album.

they told that their concept's like after school (member changes every comeback) before they debut :)
jasmineakaiumi 26th-Feb-2013 05:00 pm (UTC)
I feel like members constantly changing makes it really hard for fans to latch on to the group, especially if their favourite member leaves etc. Just doesn't feel like a good idea business-wise? Especially for a rookie group.
ms_rancha 26th-Feb-2013 05:42 pm (UTC)
yep. after school is the best example... they are quite successful even with that concept of theirs cause they debuted EARLIER~ when rookies don't debut like mushrooms..
jasmineakaiumi 26th-Feb-2013 05:54 pm (UTC)
Exactly! I don't see this doing well for them.
sosyndicate 27th-Feb-2013 09:37 pm (UTC)
Somehow I totally missed that this was part of their concept. I wouldn't have allowed myself to get so excited. (lol, how dramatic is that??) I just think all the current members are QTs and talented.
irenebs_chan 26th-Feb-2013 04:19 pm (UTC)
22 tracks??? OMFG so excited
shineeinfinite 26th-Feb-2013 04:39 pm (UTC)
wow, 22 is a shit ton of tracks
but I've liked all of D-Unit's stuff pretty well so far, so hopefully it turns out well, especially with Zico's help
dieu_existence 26th-Feb-2013 04:44 pm (UTC)
is Zico that great as a producer? Could anyone tell me a song that he has produced?
jasmineakaiumi 26th-Feb-2013 05:02 pm (UTC)
A lot of Block B's last album was done by him, from what I see
avieyal 26th-Feb-2013 10:01 pm (UTC)
He's been writing a lot of Block B's songs throughout their career, but the ones he specifically produced for commercial release were mostly in the latest album "Blockbuster". Mnet had him do a "producer's journal" to explain the songs he did for their Blockbuster album, translations here: http://bontheblock.tumblr.com/post/34009131745/news-121019-zico-personally-tells-the-story so I'm guessing those are the ones he produced.

He and Park Kyung have made quite a few mixtapes and singles (separately and together) that they've been releasing for free (they uploaded it to mediafire and tweeted the links) There was a page with a list of ALL of Zico's mixtapes but somehow I can't find it anymore, but bontheblock's audio tag has pretty much all of it: http://bontheblock.tumblr.com/tagged/audio its in separate posts though (Nacseo/낙서 is Zico's old ID/stagename)

I think this: http://fuckyeahkyung.tumblr.com/mixtapes covers a lot of the mixtapes Zico and Kyung have made, but they sometimes release random one-off singles (like the recent Valentines song by Kyung) so to answer your question, the actual amount of songs Zico has written/produced that have been 'released' are...a lot ^_^"

a lot of the mixtape songs are just him rapping over other people's beats though
avieyal 27th-Feb-2013 01:23 am (UTC)
Yup, that's true, but I'm guessing being able to fit your own style of rap onto a beat is also a coveted talent for rappers? I suppose most of those mixtape songs are back when his focus was mainly just rapping, even though he's grown a lot over the years. And I don't know much about the process of creating and releasing a song but I think being a producer requires different skills than a songwriter.

He's had experience behind the console so if D-Unit's boss thinks he's good enough then we'll just have to wait and see the results of that trust ^^
4minutesluts 27th-Feb-2013 01:25 am (UTC)
oh yeah im not talking shit on him, just saying that a lot of the stuff he's released isn't songs that he's made from the ground up by himeslf
avieyal 27th-Feb-2013 01:38 am (UTC)
ah I think I read too much into it, excuse me if I came off as defensive ^^" I guess I'm overprotective of this one lol
lysblack 26th-Feb-2013 04:47 pm (UTC)
is she really beautiful or just beautiful compared to the others?
supplanter 27th-Feb-2013 01:56 am (UTC)
But the others aren't ugly or anything, so....
lysblack 27th-Feb-2013 02:02 am (UTC)
imo they aren't good looking, especially boram's sister, so...

22 tracks hell yes slay me until 2NE1 drops
921227 26th-Feb-2013 09:45 pm (UTC)
I'm totally cool with the rotating member thing but D-Unit doesn't have the room for a member without any singing/raping talent so I'm really hoping the new member can be something other than a pretty face.
shonen_key 26th-Feb-2013 10:04 pm (UTC)
lawd, that's some unfortunate typo right there
supplanter 27th-Feb-2013 01:58 am (UTC)
You had to reply so they couldn't edit it away and preserve it for posterity!
shonen_key 27th-Feb-2013 04:56 am (UTC)
Oh you would do the same thing, Fuji.
supplanter 27th-Feb-2013 08:49 am (UTC)
But of course. ^_^
shonen_key 26th-Feb-2013 10:06 pm (UTC)
lol no comment on her singing/rapping abilities [if she had any]. What's the point of her being in a music group then.. ._.
scarletapples 26th-Feb-2013 10:31 pm (UTC)
I still see no point in adding her if she's just a pretty face, but then again, this happens all the time in groups -__-

And 22 tracks!? They must've been really busy then
in_noctem 26th-Feb-2013 11:11 pm (UTC)
22 tracks sounds really excessive.
senshicalico 26th-Feb-2013 11:45 pm (UTC)
lbr 22 tracks means "10 tracks plus 11 1-second silent tracks before the bonus."
purekpopology 26th-Feb-2013 11:49 pm (UTC)
she looked pretty even through the blur, but suuuuper young. I'm a little annoyed, because I feel like they're adding her just to up the "pretty" factor of the group.

22 tracks is A LOT. why so many lol?! as long as they're all good, I don't care, but it seems so extreme. unless 11 of them are instrumentals that is...
b1gay4 27th-Feb-2013 12:06 am (UTC)
idgi why isn't she in school

22 tracks?!
supplanter 27th-Feb-2013 01:59 am (UTC)
TBH I am a little creeped out that they've all apparently been repeatedly describing a 14-yo as "extremely beautiful". (Well, maybe she's 15, and yet....)
k0dama 27th-Feb-2013 06:18 am (UTC)
"very beautiful"

Not interested. That isn't something that is representative of the amount of effort you've put in.

How about something about her abilities or strong points?
sosyndicate 27th-Feb-2013 09:38 pm (UTC)
mte. I'd rather hear about her musical abilities.
pivotandsway 28th-Feb-2013 06:14 am (UTC)
source is nate? this is lifted directly/verbaitm from d-units.tumblr.com.... the actual korean source is osen anyway wth. also the 22 tracks thing was sth lost in translation from d-business to the press. they actually mean that they will have 22 tracks total from debut to this second album. 9 from the first album and 13 total from the second.
