They continued, saying, “We would like to state again that two of them have been fired.”

Meet ONE, the Korean Rapper Doing K-Pop Differently



Once part of a K-Pop idol duo, Jung Jaewon aka ONE is now defining his artistic identity on his own terms, with a fierce independence – here, we meet this rising star

TEXT by Taylor Glasby

ONE, the 23-year-old rapper, is a rarity in the cut-throat world of South Korean music, where second chances aren’t always easy to come by. K-Pop idol groups come and go in the blink of an eye, and ONE (real name Jung Jaewon) knows this only too well, having made his debut in January 2015 as one half of idol duo 1Punch, which was disbanded that very same summer. For most artists, this would signal a return to everyday life – school, an office job, the army (South Korea has compulsory military service) – but ONE is different. Not only is he now signed to one of the country’s most powerful labels, YG Entertainment (home of WINNER and BIGBANG), he understands who he wants to be as an artist.

“At first, I didn’t want to become a ‘known artist’,” ONE says, looking back at the period of time between the end of 1Punch and joining YG. “I just wanted to become a happy and free artist. But, recently, I realised that that’s the hardest goal to achieve. Even if I fail in becoming a ‘known artist’, I’d definitely want to become a happy person.”

so as far as i can understand, they get underrated/unknown singers to sing while other celebs lip sync and at the end, the audience votes between two?  none of the episodes barring the first have been subbed so far so this is as much as i could do :/ it was nice seeing my babies tho, i'll probably be making more posts now that personal stuff has calmed down a bit
