For this week, we featured 4Men. A talented vocal R&B group that consists of 3 currents members that are Young Jae, Shin Yong Jae and Kim Won Joo.

This group debuted in 1998 with 4 members hence the group name 4Men. The first generation or original members of 4Men was the pioneer for R&B song in Korea. For past years, the group has changed members and also released few albums until they stay in hiatus for awhile.

They released a special album called “The 3rd Generation” as the re-introduction back to the industry. With the new line-up, the song “Can’t Do” become very popular in the online chart and their first ever top 10 hit. A pure R&B ballad that we haven’t seen for a while. It was written by Vibe’s Yoon Min Soo.  The song does have Vibe’s R&B flavor.

With the success of this song, fans are hoping to see 4men come out more to promote and sing this song live on music shows.
