The girls wanted to get the most out of this new genre and were able to achieve this through the help of saintbinary, who is the nation’s best electronic editor known for various works. Their second planned single, Love Action, features Jo PD, making it their second collaboration with him following their popular Hold the Line. This dance track has fun beats pleasant to the ear and was in competition with L.O.V.E as being the title track. As for the last track, Farewell Letter, it was supposed to be included in the group’s second album but was not added due to its contrast in style with the album.

Jin Ju’s First Mini Album [White]
When one thinks about the word white, innocence and purity first come to mind. One reason the album title seems appropriate is because of her name, which means pearl in the Korean language.

– New singer and songwriter Kang Chae Yi’s debut album!

There are many rock bands such as YB (Yoon Do Hyun Band), Kim C (Hot Potato), Kang San Ae, Jung Tae Chun and Park Eun Ohk, who’ve all worked very hard to bring rock to the mass public in Korea. However, it wasn’t easy for many rock bands to become popular and show off their musical talents. It’s about twice as hard for rock bands to get recognition and come up with their own color and label. After ten years of hard work and training, Kang Chae Yi is finally making her debut. This is a talented female musician who composes, writes and rearranges songs. There are a total of 11 tracks in this album and each track goes in depth about love stories. Many talented musicians such as Jeon Hae Sung, and Yoon Do Hyun have contributed to this album. Jeon Hae Sung produced this album and Yoon Do Hyun sang a duet with Kang Chae Yi called “Love, You Fool”, which is a medium tempo ballad. (from purpletiger86)
