2NE1 already seniors? 1st Mini Album dominates this weeks charts!
On July 31st, KBS 2TV Broadcast “Yoo Hwi Chul’s Sketchbook” was holding the summertime special. And 4 Minute, a newcomer shocked YHC for calling SNSD and 2NE1 seniors.
4 Minute with their single song ‘Hot Issue’ made the guys audience cheering enthusiastically and they were well-received. MC Yoo Hwi Chul commented 4 Minute’s performance, “Really great”. This girl group has certainly rising in popularity in the music industry.
When they were asked what things set them apart from other girl groups, “The first one is our unusual greetings.” They showed 4 fingers and uniquely said ‘We are 4 Minute~’. The next, they confidently said that they will show the power of a 90s only girl group, and that with them being young, it makes them able to do everything hardworkingly. MC Yoo Hwi Chul then replied, “I was in the college in the 90s.” which caused laughter among the audience.
4 Minute also says, “We are learning a lot when we monitor the stage of SNSD and 2NE1”. 4 Minute calls SNSD and 2NE1 ‘Sunbaenim’ (T/N : Senior) and Yoo Hwi Chul was surprised and said, “Those girls are already seniors?” which made the audience laughed even harder.
