Gong Minzy’s “NINANO” Debut Stage Showcase

Brought to you by your friends at Kpopmap.

 

1. Minzy’s Own Music

The highlight of the night had to be the stunning live performances from the artist’s new debut album. Minzy performed a total of two stages – her title song, ‘NINANO’, and her self composed song, ‘Beautiful Lie’. Although the song genres were different from her music during the 2NE1-era, Minzy made a successful launch into finding her own music style.

2. Minzy’s Own Crew

For Minzy’s title performance, she welcomed her featured artist Flowsick onto the stage. The rapper, while adorably stumbling over his Korean, expressed his honor to be collaborating with Minzy, who he had admired ever since 2NE1 debuted back in 2009. Minzy showered her friend with warm compliments as the two showed off an amazing chemistry.

3. Minzy’s Own Style

Minzy was asked to demonstrate the differences in her poses since her 2NE1 days compared to her new solo debut launch. To throwback to her girl group era, Minzy posed in the style that we were most accustomed to: fierce girl crush with that hip hop bent. When asked to pose in her new style as an artist, Minzy turned from fierce to friendly by sending the audience hearts and warm smiles! Minzy also mentioned that if YG Entertainment was more like an organization of similar artists, Music Works felt more like a tight knit family.

Minzy was confident in every way possible during her debut showcase. She expressed that she’s recently found her calling in exercising through pilates. She got up to show off some of her newfound flexibility and strength, and honestly the girl is just sexy in everything that she does. Minzy said she takes care of her body more, and we think it definitely shows in her toned muscles!

5. Minzy’s Own Future

Minzy couldn’t dodge the question about her current relationship with the other 2NE1 members. She replied that she is still close to CL, Dara and Bom, and that they each continually cheer each other on. She also thanked YG for helping her get to where she is today, saying that she wouldn’t be able to have this solo debut without her past as a YG Family member. Past is past, and the future awaits. Minzy expressed that although she’s had such a blessed career so far, she has more hopes and dreams she wishes to accomplish in the future as a solo artist.

My Idol Monday: Gong Minzy

From the maknae of global K-Pop queens to the sexy diva who owns the stage alone, Minzy is what’s on our mind this week.

Like Us on Facebook

As long as you haven’t been living under a rock for the past decade, you’ve heard and known of the K-Pop queens called 2NE1. Well, the baby of the group is finally branching out to pursue her own dreams of becoming the sexiest diva in the industry. After the tragic disbandment of the 21st century legends, Minzy joined hands with Music Works to fulfill her own style of music without any boundaries set by group image or corporate policies.

We’re here to re-crush on the sexy baby turned sexy soloist, Gong Minzy!

 

My Idol Monday: Gong Minzy

 

You’ve seen her, heard her and know everything about her (basically).

Minzy just made her solo debut today, and we’re more than excited to share with you all of the reasons why we love this sexy baby turned sexy queen!

What do you think of when you think of Gong Minzy? One word. Sexy.

You can see it ooze out from any of her photos since debut. Sexy debut? Check. Sexy stage? Check. Sexy photoshoot? Check! Just take out Minzy’s W Korea “Talking Body” campaign.

 

 

But deep inside, you can’t deny that this sexy diva was chosen as the maknae for a reason. Minzy has a puppy-like aegyo that she saves just for her 2NE1 unnies and her YG Family.

 

 

So let’s take a look back to 2NE1’s beginning to end, and Minzy’s new revamped future!

2NE1 is the first girl group to hit global stats out of YG Family. The girls debuted in 2009, but unfortunately came to a disbandment end in mid-2016. Throughout the 7 years, the girls left behind a long list of hit songs, such as “I Am the Best”, “LONELY”, “FIRE” and so much more.

Although Minzy is known as the maknae of the group, she’s also known as the dancer of the group. Ever since their pre-debut days, Minzy’s dancing skills caught the attention of dance enthusiasts from all over the world. She entered the YG doors at the young age of 15 thanks to her dancing skills, but she’s cultivated her vocal abilities throughout the years – and it’s definitely a voice to last the ages now!

 

 

So she’s a fabulous dancer, fabulous performer, and a fabulous singer, but she’s also a fabulous fashionista! Just checking out her Instagram, you can see her various styles in beautiful colors. Goals all around, don’t you think?

Minzy’s now ready than ever to branch out to create her very own signature music style. After joining Music Works early in 2016, Minzy’s finally made her solo debut with her 1st album, “Minzy Work 01 UNO”. Starting from April 17, 2017, you can think of Minzy, not as 2NE1’s sexy maknae, but Gong Minzy the sexy queen.

Hold on just one second!

Before Minzy made her long-awaited debut, she decided to challenge herself even farther by joining a new girl group in the making – “Unnies’ Slam Dunk Season 2”. Our artist joined the new cast in 2016, and is continually practicing as the main dancer and vocalist of “Unnies”. She’s also made a new life-long friend through the show – I.O.I’s popular center, SoMi!

But it’s not just the rising star, SoMi. Minzy has an extensive amount of famous friends who are cheering for her debut album. Considering her global queen status as 2NE1, don’t you think it makes sense that she’s close to super stars like Joe Jonas, Ailee, Yoo JaeSeok and more?

Born and raised to take over the world, we don’t have a doubt that Minzy’s Queen-status only knows the way up since 2009!

Brought to you by your friends at Kpopmap.

 

1. HI! FASHION

NaYoung, RoA, YuHa, EunWoo, Rena, KyulKyung, YeHana, SungYeon, XiYeon and Kyla graced the stage to say hello for the first time since their official debut. The 10 girls came out dressed in one clean theme – pure white. The girls’ debut theme to center around the one word, ‘pure’. All of the members dressed in various styles in all white. From chic A-Line dresses to crop tops with high waist shorts, PRISTIN looked pretty, pure and powerful up on their debut stage.

2. HI! WEE WOO

As their opening stage, the girls performed their debut title track, ‘WEE WOO’. The track was composed with the help of their composer member, SungYeon. The idol introduced their new title as a ‘pure pop’ dance track. The girls’ first ever debut stage was definitely a sight to see. As expected from Pledis, the group’s choreography was full of musical-like stages and innovative use of the whole stage. With beautiful expressions, gestures and kalgunmu, PRISTIN were definitely pure, pretty and powerful!

3. HI! SOUND OUT

Any idol group needs their signature greeting. PRISTIN introduced their new greeting during the showcase. NaYoung begins, “Sound out!” and the girls follow, “We are PRISTIN!” NaYoung explained that their greeting starts out with “Sound out!”, meaning ‘we’re always ready, so call on us at any time’. PRISTIN shouted out their pure, pretty and powerful greeting with pride from start to finish of the show.

4. HI! COMPOSERS

Their debut album features songs that all of the members took part in composing or writing lyrics to. SungYeon revealed that Pledis Entertainment has a very experiment-ive atmosphere where they can freely explore their composing and producing abilities. Growing up in America, SungYeon used to write songs for her mom and her love for composing transferred over to their new album. Considering how SEVENTEEN has their very own composer (Woozi) SungYeon seems to be the similar member of the new group.

5. HI! TRAINEES

All of the members had prepared a great deal amount of time for their debut. The longest training period belonged to XiYeon, who trained for over 9 years! KyulKyung and NaYoung on the other hand had more experience as trainees through their “Produce 101” appearance and I.O.I debut. KyulKyung expressed that although I.O.I was a precious time for her, she felt a sense of desperation for PRISTIN’s debut. NaYoung also spoke up to reveal that with the help of her training days in “Produce 101” and I.O.I, she feels more confident and responsible for PRISTIN’s debut. SungYeon has also trained diligently not just in Pledis, but as a contestant on “Girls’ Spirit”.

6. HI! STAGE NAMES

4 of the 10 members debuted with stage names instead of their real birth names. YuHa was given the name to stand for happiness (Yu) in big (Ha) amounts. Rena was named after the Indian word for light, so that she can become the PRISTIN’s light to shine in K-Pop. RoA’s big smile is her biggest appeal, which is why she was given the name. YeHana is best known for her positive outlook, so she was given the name with Hana (meaning one in Korean). Her role is to bring all of the 10 members into one with her positive energy.

7. HI! GLOBAL GROUP

PRISTIN isn’t just a simple K-Pop group, they’re a global group that will one day take over the world. The girls’ showcase background featured the word ‘Hello’ in various languages. Plus, the group has a Chinese member (KyulKyung) and two members from America (Kyla and SungYeon)! All of their tracks are titled in English so that their fans from all over the world can easily understand and remember their debut.

8. HI! BLACK WIDOW

To close out the night, PRISTIN performed their sub-track titled ‘Black Widow’. If the girls focused on their pretty concept for ‘Wee Woo’, their ‘Black Widow’ performance was definitely more power-focused. The sub-track had a powerful layer of hip hop as the girls showed off their fierce and femme fetal sides in sexy hair whips and dance lines. With such diverse concept images in one group, we think PRISTIN will be one of the hottest rookie groups to debut in 2017.

9. HI! PRISTIN

With that, PRISTIN has finally made their official debut and their first debut stage. Following the strong Pledis seniors, such as Son Dambi, After School and SEVENTEEN, PRISTIN has been given a boost in positive and powerful image for their debut. PRISTIN hopes to become a staple in the industry as a girl group that’s unlike any other. They hope to continue on the Pledis legacy with their pure and pretty, yet powerful image. Congratulations to the 10 members and their stunning showcase!

The 5 boys are standing on their two feet, as they manage their own company, produce their whole album in-house, and basically call the shots on everything that deals with their signature music sound.

HIGHLIGHT’s “CAN YOU FEEL IT?” Showcase

Brought to you by your friends at Kpopmap.

 

1. CAN YOU FEEL THE FASHION?

The five pre-BEAST/now-HIGHLIGHT boys came out onto the stage dressed to impress. Each member was dressed according to their signature style and personality – a much needed change from the recent rookie pattern of wearing the same outfits!

2. CAN YOU FEEL THE MEMBERS?

The night continued onto a photo session. Each of the members came out onto the stage one by one for the array of flashes. It was so darn funny that each of the members had their very own posing style that literally screamed out what kind of person they were. DuJun was the confident leader, JunHyung was the mysterious artist, YoSeob was the cutie pie, KiKwang was the vibrant easy-goer, and DongWoon was the hilarious PR-maknae.

3. CAN YOU FEEL THE ROOKIE FEEL?

BEAST hadn’t held showcases since their debut days. Considering that it was about 9 years ago, the boys were awkward when it came time to pose together as a team in their ‘distinct team pose’. The boys were awkward and unsure as they did their best to play their rookie roles. The boys started with a confident fist up, then continued to the most awkward and confusing effort to be a cute and refreshing rookie. We think they pulled it off, no probs! 😛

4. CAN YOU FEEL THE BROTHERHOOD LOVE?

During the photo time, the two joksters at the far right couldn’t help themselves. KiKwang and DongWoon continually fooled around quietly at their corner. They’d make the cutest faces together, whisper jokes to one another, dance together and just love all around. The chemistry between the main dancer and the old-maknae helped lighten up the mood.

5. CAN YOU FEEL THE MAKNAE?

The 1st mini-album showcase was definitely a maknae-on-top kind of night. DongWoon had the most playful energy tonight as he danced to their highlight medley, and was even kind enough to demonstrate their new point dance. Although all four of his older brother were a little embarrassed by him, all eyes were on DongWoon to see what this silly maknae was up to next!

6. CAN YOU FEEL THE HIGHLIGHT?

The group re-debuted with a new name. BEAST is now HIGHLIGHT. When asked what inspired their new name, DongWoon revealed that he recalled the fact that their last album as BEAST was titled “HIGHLIGHT”. He wanted to connect their two eras together, and show that they will forever stand brightly for their fans. YoSeob also revealed that he initially wanted to be named “With Us” – a play on their label name “Around Us”. But his suggestion was quickly shot down by his brothers for being too familiar to the convenience store called With Me.

7. CAN YOU FEEL THE GOOD LIFE?

With their new found freedom in management, the boys also found freedom in their own music color. For their 1st mini-album, the boys gathered together to discuss what kind of music they wished to portray as HIGHLIGHT, and left the complete album producing to Yong JunHyung‘s producing team, GOOD LIFE. All five members contributed to the album, but JunHyung revealed that he tried his best to stay within the lines of the group’s wish to be more colorful and bright.

8.  CAN YOU FEEL CUBE?

With such a hard legal fight, HIGHLIGHT couldn’t dodge the question regarding their old label – Cube Entertainment. DongWoon clarified that although the discussions were long, and some things didn’t work out at the end, the relationship between the group and Cube are still solid. The boys expressed that they will always thank Cube for allowing them to come this far, and that Papa Hong told the boys to come to him for help whenever they needed anything!

9. CAN YOU FEEL A FUTURE BEAST?

The legal documents state that sometime in the future, the name BEAST will be open for the group to promote with. When asked DuJun what the group’s thoughts were on the prospect of going back to BEAST, the leader responded that BEAST will remain a cherished memory. Even if the name was cleared tomorrow, the boys have decided to start anew as HIGHLIGHT. Although they could’ve waited until the name was available before promoting again, the boys didn’t want to keep their beloved fans waiting. For the sake of their fans, who were the greatest source of strength during their legal battles, HIGHLIGHT wished to relay their thanks ASAP.

10. CAN YOU FEEL IT?

HIGHLIGHT is more than ready to take over the K-Pop industry as rookie-veterans. They ended the night by thanking their fans for allowing them to get this far. Although the new beginning is scary and nerve-wrecking, HIGHLIGHT vows to continue putting out good music for endless years to come!
