More details about D-Unit’s 4th member + their 2nd album

new girl

D-Unit have some more eye candy [wow can they not she's literally 14] in store with the addition of a very pretty 4th member and are now teasing with a blurred out photo as well as dropping details on their upcoming album, Affirmative Chap.1!

In a previous article, D-Unit’s agency surprised fans as they announced their plans to bring in a new member who “possesses extreme beauty”. The member chosen is said to have been recommended by Block B‘s Zico, who is producing their upcoming album.

Since then, the agency has revealed some new information about this very pretty member: “D-Unit’s new member is a former model and child actress. She possesses beautiful visuals and will be 16 years old this year [Korean age], making her the youngest idol star of the current music scene.”

They haven’t yet addressed the most important detail yet though, as there is no mention about what role she will serve in the group. Will she be singing? Rapping? Or will she just be simply serving as a visual? We have no choice but to wait to see for ourselves, and trust that Zico has recommended her on the basis of talent as well.

As for their album, D-Unit will be returning with their 2nd studio album which will be split up into two chapters. Chapter 1 will feature 7 tracks and will be released on March 4th while Chapter 2 will include six tracks and be revealed soon after.

Despite being in the midst of controversy with his label, Zico willingly took the time to help D-Unit by producing both title tracks of each chapter of the album.

Stay tuned for the first chapter on March 4th and more details regarding the new member!

There was a post here the other day saying their new album would have 22 tracks on it but that was a miscommunication between D-Business and the media outlets. What it was supposed to say is that D-Unit will have released 22 tracks in total since their debut up til both chapters of Affirmative are out. So if that sounded a bit too ambitious or excessive to you that was a good instinct hey good for you!

OSEN fucked up and accidentally uploaded a picture of the new member. Thankfully a swift UNIQUE (D-Unit's fanclub, get hip) captured it before it got replaced (● ̄(エ) ̄●)ノ。.:*・°☆

leaked pic

Someone said she looked like Janey from GP Basic but somehow against all odds and by the power of jelly pop I think that group is still technically together. She cute tho. Keep in mind that RAM is like 25 so there's at least a decade long age gap between the eldest and maknae. And now they have 4 members. Don't compare them to 2NE1 though. It's lazy and you're better than that ^__^

Anyway here's the cover art that's been attached to their press releases

Affirmative Chap.1 cover

wow shiny... and the tracklisting + credits

  1. 살아남아 (Stay Alive) (ft. Vasco) (Lyrics: VASCO | Composer: VASCO)

  2. 얼굴보고얘기해 (Talk to My Face) (ft. Zico of Block B) (Lyrics: Zico | Composer: Zico, Yoo Sunkyun)

  3. Lock Down (Lyrics: DM, Nodo | Composer: Park Jiho, Noday)

  4. Alone (Lyrics: C-Luv, RAM | Composer: Stay Tuned, C-Luv, RAM)

  5. 늦잠 (Sleeping In) Pt2 (ft. C-Luv) (Lyrics: DM, Nodo, RAM | Composer: Stay Tuned, C-Luv, DM, RAM | Arranger: Stay Tuned)

  6. 허수아비 (Scarecrow) (Lyrics: DM | Composer: DM)

  7. Luv Me (Lyrics: C-Luv, DM | Composer: C-Luv, DM | Arranger: Yoo Sunkyun)

So really only 4 songs we haven't heard before, but there's still Chapter 2 with 6 new songs including Zico's other contribution "Thank You". A lot of familiar names from Welcome to Business so if you liked that album you're in luck. If you watched their show you might have seen this already, but you can hear them working on "Alone" last year below.

pivotandsway 28th-Feb-2013 08:08 am (UTC)
it wasn't a lie omg it was a MISCOMMUNICATION
b1gay4 28th-Feb-2013 08:14 am (UTC)
well then they need 2 b more precise bc "possesses extreme beauty" ?????
either that or she needs 2 learn 2 work her angles in the future
pivotandsway 28th-Feb-2013 08:20 am (UTC)
oh that. well.... beauty is in the eye of the beholder ok u need to understand that one boy's diana ross is another girl's praying mantis. also it's a really grainy pic like let a bi*ch breathe pls
b1gay4 28th-Feb-2013 08:34 am (UTC)
well obv it is but i just thought calling her beauty extreme was exaggerated k nd ya its a grainy pic but then other members dont look constipated just saying
pivotandsway 28th-Feb-2013 08:41 am (UTC)
maybe she was feeling constipated that day... i'll pray that they succeed in this comeback so they can afford some metamucil for her

I'm very interested to hear the track with Zico.... I love anything that kid touches. But I've also grown to like Ujin quite a bit from watching Gangnam Dance School (mainly because I've been watching it for Ilhoon, negl). She's ADORABLE.
pivotandsway 28th-Feb-2013 08:09 am (UTC)
is it a cute show? and is anyone subbing it?
anrixan 28th-Feb-2013 08:17 am (UTC)
I actually watch it because Ilhoon manages to embarrass himself every episode, which is reason enough to watch it, imho. The most recent episode, where they danced to Troublemaker, Ujin actually did the guy part and Ilhoon did the girl part at first. Lol. I don't think Ujin is one for skinship (and Ilhoon "isn't either" unless it's his bandmates), so it was horrendously awkward and entertaining.

I didn't know anything about Ujin or Tasha (from Skarf) before watching the show, but they're really super cute.

No one has been subbing it yet, so something tells me it won't be subbed, sadly. It's released every Friday though! And, again, if you want to see an 18 year old kid embarrass himself every week, it's worth watching. :D
pivotandsway 28th-Feb-2013 08:21 am (UTC)
aw ok ty for the info maybe I'll check it out this weekend ^__^
anrixan 28th-Feb-2013 08:23 am (UTC)
You're welcome. :D

falling_empress UMMMMMMMMM28th-Feb-2013 09:16 am (UTC)
if that's stunning visuals then i'm the most fucking beautiful princess in the world...let's be serious, Ujin is forever the best member ever. flawless goddess tbh.

Oh.
jeit91 28th-Feb-2013 01:08 pm (UTC)
i would have a field day if it turned out to be janey.
pivotandsway 2nd-Mar-2013 12:03 am (UTC)
her vocal color fits in w/ them already...
dieu_existence 28th-Feb-2013 02:19 pm (UTC)
Thank god there is only ONE track by Zico. the boy should get his shit together before ruin my girls albums
purekpopology 1st-Mar-2013 01:43 am (UTC)
excited for this! glad the 22 track this was off lol. ilhoon and ujin are super QT in the gif!

i really hope this new girl has some talent or else I'ma smh at zico letting them say he "recommended" her.
pivotandsway 1st-Mar-2013 02:07 am (UTC)
yeah i'll be really creeped out if she's just a "hot" tween. but if it's janey (which i don't think but let's ~imagine~) it makes sense.... tbh they could use an actual rapper they're all kind of moonlighting in that capacity
purekpopology 1st-Mar-2013 02:20 am (UTC)
I don't know anything about Janey... is she a good rapper? ia though, they're all kind of moonlighting the raps.
pivotandsway 1st-Mar-2013 02:34 am (UTC)
lol I wouldn't say it's good it was cute as she was like 12 when her group was active idk what she's like now... this & this are from a few months ago but I can't even listen to them rn so irdek
itendtoflail 1st-Mar-2013 11:44 pm (UTC)
Was Janey a former child actress/model?
pivotandsway 1st-Mar-2013 11:59 pm (UTC)
apparently she did CFs when she was younger which counts for both it would seem
itendtoflail 2nd-Mar-2013 01:54 am (UTC)
OIC. Hm, I think Janey is spunky and cute but, if the rumors are even true, I really don't see the point of adding her, or adding anyone else for that matter.

I think D-Unit can still has some room to grow but what I like about them is that, while most groups have each member assigned as the "Main" vocalist, rapper and dancer, all three girls seem on par with each other. Maybe none of them are none of them are OUTSTANDING individually, but I think that's what makes them solid as a group.

I also like groups of three for symmetric reasons >_<;; Groups of four look great when they're lined up but when one member takes "center stage" the whole formation looks broken/ sloppy.
pivotandsway 2nd-Mar-2013 04:24 am (UTC)
I think it will make them seem too similar to other groups with similar concepts (2NE1, Tiny-G etc) but since this has been their concept from the beginning it doesn't rly matter to me how many there are rn they could have fewer or even more next time there's no point in thinking about the merits of the system anymore since they're going ahead with it. I like odd-numbered member groups too, but they're so short and their dancing has never particularly impressed me like they're good themselves but the choreography doesn't fully utilize them or flow well imo so maybe taking up more space will help them command the stage better idk. I wonder how they'll divvy up their old songs though. At least they're not Tahiti where they changed out 3 members at once. Idk we'll see if the new girl adds anything. Personally I think it's weird that they added someone so much younger than the others and keep highlighting her looks, like they want her to have a lot of ahjussi fans instead of what I presume to currently be a lot of girls.
