Posted by diopatra on December 7, 2010

The end of the year is near, and the Korean music industry is abuzz with news of upcoming awards shows that seek to recognize the most outstanding artists in a multitude of categories.

As a nod to these important events in the K-pop realm, allkpop has decided to initiate our first ever “allkpop Awards” this year, and we’re inviting fans from all over the world to determine the results!

That’s right – the votes will be 100% determined by international K-pop fans.

In order to ensure that the results are achieved in a fair manner, we’ve established a system in which votes can be submitted once a day per category via Twitter or Facebook.

Fans can vote as many times as they like over the course of the awards voting period, but again, only one vote per category per day will be counted.

We are aiming to make this an award that accurately represents the opinions of the international K-pop community, so check out the nominees below, and help decide K-pop’s best of 2010!

Instead of the “best”, we want to be the “only”

4minute debuted with the song . However, they were very popular before they even debuted because Hyunah had already been a member of the Wonder Girls. Amid the ferocious competition between SNSD, 2NE1, and Kara, Jiyoon said, “We don’t think of it as a competition. Instead of being greedy about being the ‘best’, we want to become the ‘only’ so that it is impossible to compare us with anyone else.”

4minute’s charming points?

ayoon: Jihyun looks pure, innocent, and girly because of her appearance. When she dances, she looks elegant. That is one of her charms. Her forte is that as a leader, she listens to us.

Jihyun: Jiyoon’s charm is her personal “charms” (attractiveness). She’s very devoted. No matter how late we stay up to practice, she always wakes up the earliest in the morning. Her charming point is her exceptional passion for music.

Jiyoon: Although Sohyun is the maknae, her charming point is that she’s like an adult. She’s very thorough with managing herself. She also has a great sense of responsibility.

Sohyun: If you say that Hyunah unni is a charismatic and happy girl, then isn’t that a charm that everyone wants? Hyunah unni’s special forte is trying to make her own style so that she is a unique “item”.

Hyunah: If you see Gayoon singing, then I don’t need to explain anything else. She has a voice that is impossible to not concentrate on.

4minute’s style?

4minute’s style is known as “candy funky”. “Candy funky” expresses 4minute’s music, fashion, and performances. It is a mixture of colorful, conspicuous, and sweet candy with the rebellious, reviving, and free “funky” music. The individual 4minute members all want to invade this summer and become “items”.

Hyunah: If you talk about the summer, then the general feeling is definitely colorful. We’re showing free and unrestrained aspects. Because of this, I wear leggings with holes in them.Although it is quite embarassing, it is still meaningful.

Sohyun: My item is the bag. Nowadays, I have a bag that can carry music. Instead of being flat and simple, I think we can be colorful and brilliant this summer while being loved by fans.

Jiyoon: Sunglasses for me. Of course sunglasses under a hot sun. During the summer and in this kind of situation, I think it’d be good to be so magnificent that it makes people dizzy.

Jihyun: Ribbons. It’s good to be strong, but a girly and lovable item is a ribbon.I think items like ribbons, dresses, shoes, and bags will always be loved.

Gayoon: Leggings with huge prints. It’s a forte for performances. On the stage, my shoe colors are wrongly matched as well. I think this kind of style will be loved this year.

4minute “school attendance” is “mission impossible”?

4minute is challenging their impossible mission.

4minute (Jihyun Nam, Gayoon Heo, Jiyoon Jun, Hyunah Kim, Sohyun Kwon) surfaced into the music industry with the song <Hot Issue>.
Their most important mission is the school attendance of (Junior) High school students Hyunah and Sohyun.
Because 4minute has become so popular, their schedule has become so full that they don’t even have time to sleep.
Even though it’s like that, Hyunah and Sohyun have to go to school no matter what.

The management at the company said that they determined things that must be protected while 4minute fulfills their schedule.

Because of this, many episodes have occured.
School and star activities.
In the situation of capturing these two rabbits at once, others cannot even imagine how hard it must be.

On July 6th, 4minute appeared on MBC Radio “Good Morning FM” at 8 AM.
It is usually abnormal for idol stars to appear on morning radio programs.
A majority of the audience, however, were looking for 4minute, so 4minute eventually decided to show up.

The problems are students Hyunah and Sohyun.
Appearing on a 8 AM program would make a conflicting situation with going to school.
However, Hyunah and Sohyun immediately changed into their school uniforms after the program ended and went to school.

In a recent situation, they even got on an airplane to fulfill their schedule.
In order to go to Gwangju for a special program, Hyunah and Sohyun got on an airplane right after school and flew there.
They were arranged to perform Wonder Girls’ “Tell Me” so there was a lot of interest.
In the end, Hyunah and Sohyun did not even have time to change clothes.
The moment they arrived, they had to go on stage for rehearsal.

The staff at the company said that “school attendance is a #1 priority.”
“Despite their busy schedule, Sohyun and Hyunah are greedy about going to school.
The staff especially tries to set schedules so that there are no occasions when Sohyun and Hyunah can avoid schoolwork.”

4minute does Tell Me

Posted by diopatra on July 6, 2009

It wasn’t so long ago, well almost 2 years ago, where the Wonder Girls made a big splash with Tell Me in 2007 and the rest they say is history, as they are now making headlines all over America as guest performers for the Jonas Brothers concert tour until the end of the year.

Many wondered what might have been if Kim Hyun Ah had not left Wonder Girls before Tell Me due to health issues. Well, 2 years later, Hyun Ah is now fully recovered and back as part of Cube Entertainment’s 5 member girl group, 4minute. We were given a taste of what might have been as Hyun Ah performed a shortened version of Tell Me with her fellow 4minute members on the 2nd July episode of MNET M! Countdown for the Countdown Heroes segment.

A breakdown of who’s playing who.

Hyun Ah – Sun Mi & Yoo Bin
So Hyun – So Hee
Ga Yoon – Ye Eun
Ji Yoon – Sun Ye
Ji Hyun – Generic dancer
