A Cube Entertainment artist Mario recently unveiled a new digital single entitled “Text Message” featuring singer Baek Ji Young.

To help promote the song, Mario performed on February 12th’s episode of ’Inkigayo‘ along with 4minute‘s Gayoon. The stage was set for a beautiful performance, as Mario brought on a live orchestra to support him, and Gayoon stepped out in a sophisticated ensemble.

Unfortunately, the performance experienced a hiccup during the middle.

As the song built towards its climax, Gayoon’s voice fell flat and she missed a powerful note. Though she was a bit disheartened by the mistake, Gayoon rallied her spirits and strove to finish the rest of the song with Mario.

Immediately after the performance, fans left comments on SNS services on how Gayoon looked a little ill, and expressed sympathy for the young star.

This week, 4minute’s HyunA concluded nearly 50 days of promotions for her solo album with her follow-up song, “Just Follow” with Zico of Block B.

Before heading straight into her international activities, HyunA sat down for an interview with reporters to wrap up her solo album promotions. She began, “As busy as I’ve been with my promotions, I think time went by just as fast. It doesn’t feel like it’s the end of my solo activities yet. There is a lot of disappointment, but I’m glad to have been able to show a side of me that I usually couldn’t. I’m happy to be ending my promotions amidst much love.”
When asked about her dramatic weight loss (recorded to be 39 kg at her lowest), she replied, “After I suddenly lost a lot of weight, I was met with a drop in stamina. Before, I had to go through about 20 rounds of my choreography before I was out of breath but now it gets tiring for me after just one stage.”

On promoting with 4minute again, she said, “I was lonely because I’m always with my members but had to be away from them. We couldn’t spend as much time as we used to so it was disappointing, but I’m glad to be back...

On 4minute’s album jacket for their third Japanese single “FIRST” and “DREAMS COME TRUE“, something seems to be a bit off.

In the photo, there seems to be two HyunAs: the girl in the middle and the one on the far left both look exactly like HyunA.

Maknae Sohyun seems to be missing from the photo. It may be the photoshopping’s fault but none of them look anything like Sohyun.

The photo was released about a week ago, but fans have realized the photo’s flaw recently.

4minute seems to be doing pretty well these days. They have been featured on Amerie’s upcoming track, burned up the Philippines and have now had the honor of meeting the world star Rihanna.

Rihanna visited Korea to promote her album Rated R. While in Korea, she met 4minute at interview with an entertainment news program. If you have been living in a hole for the past few years and don’t know who Rihanna is, let me tell you. She’s an A-list singer with seven Grammy’s under her belt that was discovered by Jay-Z and has had over seven chart topping hits, including Shut Up and Drive, Please Don’t Stop the Music, Disturbia and Umbrella.

4minute’s Jiyoon sang Umbrella before her debut at her music academy, an incident that reveals 4minute’s love and respect for Rihanna.

Unfortunately for HyunA, schedule conflicts preventing her from meeting the international pop star. She had to attend a filming session for Invincible Youth which made her miss this amazing chance. HyunA did express her sadness over the overlapping schedule.

On Octobe 18th, a source revealed that Gayoon finished filming her cameo as a high school student, who was a childhood friend of Cha Bong Sun (played by Lee Ji Ah), on October 16th.

The source stated, “During scenes such as taking the college entrance exams, she was able to successfully pull off acting that was short but impactful.”

Although it was only a short cameo appearance, viewers are curious to see Gayoon making her first acting debut.

The drama has been in the spotlight recently for the switch of lead male actors. The original lead, Kim Jae Won, had no choice but to pull out due to a shoulder injury caused by a motorcycle malfunction during the filming of the drama, and Yoon Shi Yoon was cast to take his place.

There are currently rumors going around that 4minute’s HyunA and MBLAQ’s Lee Joon are a couple.

On June 22nd, HyunA and Lee Joon were seen together on a flight that was heading from Okinawa, Japan to South Korea.

The two singers sat together in the first row of the business class section, and were reportedly seen acting like a couple throughout the two-hour flight.

A witness on the flight claimed, “HyunA and Lee Joon were dressed casually and acted like a college couple. Maybe it was because there weren’t many people in the business class section, but they seemed very comfortable and weren’t wearing sunglasses or hats.”

Another witness added, “HyunA and Lee Joon were teasing each other while holding hands, and also leaned on each other’s shoulders. They looked like a cute couple.”

However, the agencies of both singers have refuted the claims explaining that the two were just filming for a music video together.

On June 18th, 4minute’s maknae Sohyun left a post on their official fancafe celebrating the group’s second anniversary.

Her post read:

“Two years have already passed since 4minute debuted. There’s been a lot of obstacles since then, but it was because of our fans that we were able to find strength.


This album was our first in a while so we were under a lot of stress, which naturally affected our health. Our fans’ support was a lot of help, so even though we didn’t promote for a long time, it was a really fun album for us.

There are fans that are upset over our short promotion cycle, but our goal this time was to let everyone know what color 4minute is. I do feel upset in that we weren’t able to promote for a bit longer and be with our fans on music programs more.


In celebration of our second year anniversary, I’m going to go back to our dorms and watch everything starting from our debut stage before bed. I will be the only one watching them, so I hope you guys will only watch our best stages. It’s embarrassing.”

On May 22nd, the reporters of MBC’s “Section TV” visited the set of 4minute’s latest endorsement photoshoot, and interviewed the girls on their looks and image.

Since the endorsement was for a makeup brand, the reporters were inspired to ask: “Out of all the members of 4minute, who do you think has the prettiest bare face?” Unanimously, the members all chose leader Jihyun, and reasoned that she had healthy skin that shined even without makeup.

HyunA added, “Jihyun looks better without makeup, actually. She was born with nice skin so she doesn’t even need isolating skin care.”

As this was the girls’ first makeup endorsement since their debut, they weren’t able to hide their excitement. “Our CEO was both surprised and glad that we landed the deal since he thought that we don’t have that kind of innocent, sweet image that the brands usually require.”

When asked to choose a member that pays the most attention to the way they look, HyunA confidently chose herself before the other members had a chance to answer.

4minute recently opened up about their relationship with sibling group B2ST.

As B2ST were making their comeback on KBS’s “Music Bank“, 4minute was approached about their labelmates. The girls confessed, “They’re not like our siblings (brothers and sisters), they are like our brothers (treated like brothers instead of sisters).”

During a recent interview, 4minute said, “As B2ST is getting more popular, their female fans seem to be worried that they will get into scandals with other girl groups. However, the problem is that even B2ST’s fans don’t see us as a girl group, but rather as B2ST’s sibling group. We were shocked to hear their fans say, ‘If you are going to get in a scandal, get in one with the 4minute unnis’.”

Both 4minute and B2ST are groups under Cube Entertainment, and fans have known about their close relationship since their respective debuts.

4minute continued, “B2ST’s fans even take us easy. Our fans even pressured that if we are to have joint stages for year-end festivals, that we don’t do them with any other team besides B2ST.”

4minute’s maknae Kwon Sohyun stunned the public when she revealed that she originally debuted with an young girl group called ‘Orange‘.

Orange originally debuted back in 2005, and was comprised of grade school girls.

While guesting on Mnet’s music talk show, ‘Beatles Code’, Sohyun confessed that she entered the music industry when she was in 5th grade, at the age of 12.

Unfortunately, she gave up halfway because of the pain she experienced due to harsh criticisms.

She said, “I tried not to become a singer. Since it was a primary school girl group, the envy and jealousy of my classmates peaked. There was even an internet anti-cafe, so I was very hurt by that. I couldn’t get along with my classmates except for my closest friends, and I’ve also been made an outcast before.”

Continuing, she then explained how she got into 4minute. “(After ending activities as a singer) I saw one of my seniors in middle school debut as a singer. At that time, she and I were compared a lot, and my heart hurt greatly because she was being thought of as this person who was just starting out with great potential, and I...

4minute’s comeback has been earning endless headlines for their ’spread leg dance’ in “Mirror Mirror“, which many believe is too provocative to be performed on TV.

As the controversy continues to escalate, representatives of Cube Entertainment took the time to clarify the matter through Star News:

“It is not a provocative dance performance, but rather a form of expression.

It was our adaptation of the expression, ‘Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?’ This can be seen in the members’ gaze and facial expressions – all of which are an expression of the song’s concept.

Why are performances put on by figure skaters and synchronized swimmers regarded as art, but performances by singers are automatically sexually suggestive? Music programs, at first, did say that it was rather out there but they acknowledged it as a form of performance.

Just because the choreography has been put on the chopping block of controversy does not mean we will be making changes to it. We will be continuing to promote with it on broadcast programs.”

Kneepads aren’t accessories one would normally associate with girl group outfits. When put on 4minute, however, even the most mundane of items turn into something special and eye-catching.

Although they’ve already been put on the chopping block numerous times for their provocative choreography, their powerful kneepad-requiring ’spread leg’ dance not only put their male fans in a frenzy, but still managed to catch headlines and separate them from their peers.

Gayoon revealed, “We decided to wear kneepads a day before our first broadcast. We never even thought of it until then; how foolish of us (laughter).”

Maknae Sohyun added, “We actually thought of wearing long pants instead because our legs were already so bruised from rehearsals. All we wanted to do was show our best, so we really didn’t feel any pain.”

Their “Mirror, Mirror” comeback, although controversial, has captivated fans with 78 repetitions of the term ‘mirror’, and of course, their ’spread leg’ dance. The members themselves, however, claim that they had not anticipated the controversy.

After releasing a statement earlier to defend their argument in keeping 4minute’s ’spread leg dance’ in ‘Mirror Mirror’, Cube Entertainment came forth again to state that they are open to considering the modification of the choreography due to viewers feeling uncomfortable.

On April 11th, Cube Entertainment’s Hong Seung Sung CEO expressed, “In the perspective of the company or the singer, we don’t believe that the dance of ‘Mirror Mirror’ is provocative at all.”

“The dance for “Mirror Mirror” was created to match the general mood of the song itself. With that being said, we still believe that the dance for this song is not provocative, but if many viewers and netizens have a different opinion, however disappointing, we will seriously consider modifying the dance moves.”

Jun Ji Yoon: “When you receive attention from the public, it’s inevitable that there are times when you become the center of gossip and hate. In the face of such hate, our members decided to take it all in with modesty, and show our improvements in return.

Still, we were quite hurt; comments that judged our musical qualities as ‘poor’ drove daggers into our hearts. Unlike other girl groups, we have a boyish, powerful charm that sets us apart, and we want people to feel that passion on stage.

Ever since our debut, our team mantra has been: ‘Not the best, but the only.’ We will stand on stage with every ounce of strength we have in order for our talents to be acknowledged. All of us are of the attitude that it’s not the size of the stage that matters, but the opportunity itself. We hope to become a team that is able to pull off different songs, styles, and performances with...

On the latest episode of “4minute’s Mr. Teacher“, G.NA made an appearance to teach the girls the proper way of speaking English. However, the poor singer had a hard time getting the 4minute girls to stay focused, as they kept going off topic and dancing randomly to songs.

She first attempted to help the girls differentiate the pronunciation of the ‘f’ and ‘p’ sounds, and they were able to butter up their English and say “4minute” with the perfect American accent. Jiyoon then said “f(x)” and all the girls started dancing to “LA chA TA“.

After a while, G.NA finally gave up on the easy-going idols, declaring that they were simply too hard to teach.

Though arguably overshadowed at the time of 4minute’s debut as a musical group, leader Jihyun has been catching the widespread attention of fans and netizens for her acting debut and natural beauty. In fact, the latter subject became a hot topic on the Lunar New Year’s special on MBC’s Flower Bouquet, as Jihyun was complimented for her internet fame as the “natural beauty terminator.”

Amid the praises however, B2ST’s Yoseob boldly stated the opposite, telling Jihyun that she actually looked better with make-up. Before anyone gets up in arms about the insulting implications of his remarks, Yoseob was likely just bantering with his labelmate. However, as Jihyun became flustered and began to protest, HyunA defended her band member’s looks, confidently asserting that Jihyun was indeed a natural beauty.

Later in the recording, Jihyun also received a surprise phone call from her mother. During the call, the show MC asked, “Among the members of 4minute, what position would you rank your daughter in terms of looks?” Jihyun’s mother surprised the audience by replying, “She’s at second place,” explaining that she placed maknae Sohyun first....
