Artist of the week – Brown Eyed Girls
Our featured artist this week is the new female quartet Brown Eyed Girls. Carrying the "brand name" Brown Eyes, they created a lot of attention even before their debut. Their first single "다가와서" (Staying Close) made it to the top 10 even without appearing too much on gayo shows to promote the song. At that time, fans were thinking that they would be just like Brown Eyes who never appeared on gayo shows to promote their songs. Later, these girls finally appear on stage in front of us with very impressive performances. "다가와서" (Staying Close) shows their softer side with great vocals. Their recent collobration "Hold The Line" with Cho PD shows their lighter side. With only 2 songs Brown Eyed Girls already told us that they are a very versatile group. They have a bright future ahead.
Unfortunately, there are still not too many info on Brown Eyed Girls. Here is what KBS World said about them:
Debut: "Your Story", 2006
The making of the Brown Eyed Girls took about 3 years from the conception of a girl group, recruiting and training, to the production and release of its debut album. The production of the album alone took about a year and half. Han Won-jong, the vocal coach of big K-pop stars like SG Wannabe, Jang Nara and Ok Joo-hyun, was in charge of training the members of the Brown Eyed Girls. The female quartet personifies the genre of music called “Hybrid Soul” in which R&B is combined with hip-hop.
