Ji Eun recently was featured in Lexy's title song "Up To The Sky" singing the main melody. She is already very well known for her powerful vocal skills. She has sung songs by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston in front of a big crowd and was praised for her vocal skills. There are a total of 12 tracks in this album and her title song is entitled "Yesterday Different From Today". This song was composed by Lee Hyun Jung and actress Gu Hye Seon is featured in the music video. In the music video, the man that Gu Hye Seon loves dies right in front of her eyes due to a deadly car accident. It's a very sad music video that will have us feel as if we are watching a five minute movie.

1. Stars

3. 그립습니다
4. Stars (Inst.)
5. 기다려 늑대 (Inst.)

RinZ, or Min Hyo Rin, may be the newest starlet in the Korean pop scene, but she's already a familiar face to many. The fair-featured 21-year-old artist started her career as a model and has previously appeared in some high-profile television commercials and music videos. While RinZ's photogenic looks, oft compared to Han Ga In, are a given, it is her sweet voice that is raising the most eyebrows, as the CF star has shown that she can also hold her own when it comes to singing. For her debut single, RinZ offers three ear-pleasing songs including a Korean cover of Nakashima Mika's Stars (Track 1) and a cover of 90s pop group Juliet's "Wait For Me, Wolf" (Track 2). – credits to YesAsia

Their concept for their first single album is bogko style. The title song is entitled "Her and I" which was composed by Weon Sang Woo. Paran will bring back the 80's and wear old fashioned school uniforms and dance to disco. The song "I Lay My Love On You" is a remake song that was originally by West Life.
