1. [+231, -15] Yeah, I like this concept better than sexy concepts. 2YOON fighting.

2. [+209, -16] I always felt bad for them for being in Hyuna's shadow so I hope they succeed

3. [+186, -20] I don't know much about music but I hope we get another daebak like Psy soon ^^

4. [+157, -10] Wishing the best for all of our Korean artists

5. [+160, -18] You gotta watch 2YOON's choreography when you watch their stage ㅡㅡ Idols will usually stop dancing when it's their turn to sing in case they crack their voice but 2YOON's jumping around and their live is still stable ㅡㅡ Talented idols for sure

6. [+151, -16] I hope that 2YOON doesn't try to strip down and win with sexiness like SI***19 and just continue pushing forward with their own charms. Don't resort to wearing cheap clothes, just keep going like this and they'll do fine.

7. [+162, -39] Better than SISTAR who puts on a naked show practically

8. [+128, -10] Anything's great as long as it puts our country on the map

  1. I always find it hilarious when i look at the authors of these articles in western magazines... Its always done by some korean or east asian person... talk about connections..

  2. Wow cube is using all of that manipulating money to get their girls on the front of Time...

    ReplyDelete
  3. Honestly, I doubt it. Cube would rather spend money promoting Hyuna than these two who are practically flopping. So I think this is legit. It's just that western journalists are trying to find the next Psy in the kpop songs that are hot right now.

    1. But this song isn't hot right now, going by that they would've interviews Sistar19 who are dominating charts at the moment...

  4. I-fans are gonna be so pressed about this.

  5. Koreans so desperate to be noticed by americans...

  6. This song is definitely the biggest shit of kpop in 2013 so far.. They also plagirized too.

    ReplyDelete
  7. When they run out of money, they just make Hyuna do another song. Lol.

  8. how is peaking at no. 8 on gaon a flop? are you calling them a flop just because they didn't win on music shows? how about other sub-units, like infinite-h, who didn't win either? besides, the whole point of the sub-unit was to make the public more aware about them, and to release diff. music, including ones composed by themself, something you rarely see female idols doing.

  10. Really though. Like GD in XXL. That article was written by a Korean close with Dok2 and Jay Park. I'm unimpressed. Give a an article which is out of pure interest not just some hook up.

    It appears that netizens, like broken clocks, are right twice a day.

  12. how and who did they plagarize? please entertain me. but I'm not sure if you know what 'plagarize' means if you can't even spell the word right. and if this was the 'biggest shit' in kpop, wtf was snsd's IGAB?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Lol netizens dont try to hard to support them all of sudden. They are still irrelevant.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yes!! Even the lastest article in XXL talking about KHipHop that article was done by a Korean American too. lmfao

    ReplyDelete
  15. woow what a hypocrites!!! "Anything's great as long as it puts our country on the map" ... when this happened with SNSD they all went like "SM paid them" and shit like that and now they're proud.. PFF what a joke!! btw the song is ok but man... it sounds exactly like myley cyrus' song

    ReplyDelete
  16. I hope that 2yoon makes a comeback at some stage in the future. The song wasn't that greatest but I love the country-kpop fusion concept.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Lol these bitches plagiarized a disney channel song.... hahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  18. sistar song is better but honestly is boring, 2yoon's song is refreshing

    ReplyDelete
  19. "I honestly like 2YOON's song way better than SISTAR19's"
    NO.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Props to 2YOON trying something different even though it was shit. I just hope 'country kpop' doesn't catch on because it would be far worse than all that dubstep garbage we keep hearing *cough*SM*cough*

    ReplyDelete
  21. yeah, they're creepy as shit, they want to be like americans lol never gonna happen

    ReplyDelete
  22. i'm going to bother trying to explain to stans how this song is plagirized. Because no matter what i say, you will deny that it isn't.

    ReplyDelete
  23. that's all great, but that is considered a flop though especially because they come from 4minute, a supposedly top group. when the song was first released it didn't get n.1 spot, i'm not sure it ever did. it was always around the middle in the major music charts.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I feel like you're the same person commenting over and over because your comments have the same butthurtness to all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I-fans are kinda pathetic when they only care about sales and money instead of music. 2yoon/4minute aren't considered top tier to them so they think they should be ignored to oblivion. Haters tbh.

    ReplyDelete
  26. you can't explain b/c you don't know how to. really, try me. I want to see how you prove your point. tip: try spell check

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a butthurt stan... Ahahahaha, i'm sure you can go look it up yourself since you are so curious....

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm sure Big Bang aren't lames. But hey, keep being pressed. It fits you well.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Why people bring Sistar19 in a 2yoon's article ? Anyway, people write they prefer 2yoon's song but still don't buy it while people say nothing good about Sistar19's but still buy it. SMH.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think they're doing reasonably well for a sub-unit that's coming from a 'flop' group. they've managed to stay in the top 30 singles in gaon after a month, and are charting better than groups who've came back recently

    ReplyDelete
  31. if you're talking about miley cyrus, you obviously don't know country music because there are hundreds of other songs that follow the same format. and if you're talking about BAP, that's just plain BS because I don't ever remember them putting a copyright on the phrases 'boom boom clap' and 'get down'. any more pieces of evidence you would like to add? or were there none in the first place?

    ReplyDelete
  32. These netizens are obviously Jealous 4minute stans soooooooooooo obvious...

    ReplyDelete
  33. So they can slut sham since they're insecure twats that are uncomfortable with themselves and are offended by nice legs so they have degrade any woman that is confident and wears short short/dresses because they are sad, empty, individuals.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Pretty much. If you aren't top 3 then apparently you're a lame fail.

    ReplyDelete
  35. THIS. And now I-fans are "thumb down" all the positive comments about Sistar/19 just because they think they can prevent Koreans from buying/downloading Sistar19's songs.

    ReplyDelete
  36. at the end of the day, it is a lot about sales. 2yoon only has 31m in digital aggregates. that's a really small figure considering they're from 4minute, which is one of the top tier idol groups (largely bc of hyuna, but i digress). netizenbuzz said that there was no mention of 2yoon when they were about to comeback. the only hype they got was because of gayoon's surgery. and even then there are not a lot of votes on the articles.


    ergo, flop. and you can label me a hater or whatever, i legit don't care about 4minute or hyuna.

  37. ^^keyboard warrior for her faves

  38. Anythings great as long as it puts our country on the map




    Hahahaha I dont know why I found that so funny but now I see why they insult idols one minute then complement them the next

    ReplyDelete
  39. "[+162, -39] Better than SISTAR who puts on a naked show practically" = turtleneck/ long shirt + short (and now shirt + jean). I wonder what they thought about girls in bikinis...

    ReplyDelete
  40. They're afraid Sistar is coming to slay their faves while wearing short shorts that accentuate their tone ass legs.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Which brings me back to my original comment, "I-fans are kinda pathetic when they only care about sales and money instead of the music."

    1. But that's what the music industry is about, you think idols make songs 'just for the music'? Are you really that naive? Kpop is a business, if they're not charting high, gaining relevant media attention (in Korea) or getting good enough sales, they're gonna be regarded as a flop. And considering Hyuna released Bubble Pop when she was only known as a member in 4Minute (before she got insanely popular) and slayed says a lot. Netizens didnt even know the members names when 24/7 was released. Not to mention Sistar19 ended up releasing a song that is boring but still better which demolished them in charts says to me 2YOON was a flop...

    2. *Change (instead of Bubble Pop)

  42. LOLOL
    I can't with those hypocrites. They are all like "we love 2YOON" now that america take a little interest in them. Since it seems like they like the "whites" so much.
    THEY DON'T EVEN BUY THEIR SONGS !!!!
    Meanwhile, they download SISTAR19's song and jam to it.
    Koreans are funny ^^

    ReplyDelete
  43. Not sure they realize the article says American sounds and artists are taking over Kpop.

    Good, the ratio of the upvotes and downvotes.
    The downvoters have great taste, SISTAR19>>>2WHO

    [+162, -39] Better than SISTAR who puts on a naked show practically
    What a twat. Likely a self-hating fatgirl that hates on sexy, self-confident women that are comfortable with their bodies which are majority of the Pornias fandom.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Well they have bought back half of 4minutes' album sales and two Daesangs for Beast for the past 2 years, what is surprising.

    ReplyDelete
  46. They didn't plagiarize BAP, you mean BAP plagiarize Throwdown Hoedown and 2YOON got inspired by country and translated it to country pop. Too bad there's only insignificant crap coming out of that mouth of yours. I pity you.

    ReplyDelete
  47. T___T NOW they say they like the song so much because TIME looked at them? if they like it so much then 2YOON should be highh on the charts... hypocrites...

    ReplyDelete
  48. Um it still has to be approved. I should know since I have written for several places. And the reason K-pop content gets published online a lot instead of print is because K-pop fans are hugely active online and do a lot of social media sharing. Publications get more out of publishing K-pop pieces online than in their magazines because the fans all flock to the articles and share them like crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Never said Hyuna sold more than 4minute, just that Hyuna brings relevance to 4minute and if you're seriously denying that you're dense.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Of course they never will. But both of Hyuna's songs have brought her a lot of hype and she was talked about. All publicity is good publicity.

    ReplyDelete
  51. No matter what others say..... 2yoon is the best<3
    4minute~4nias fighting^^

    ReplyDelete
  52. how did they plagiarize??? You probably don't have evidence. You just think since it's country and they use "boom boom clap" that they automatically copied Miley..... Lame!

    ReplyDelete
  53. no, it really doesn't.

    ReplyDelete
  54. stop talking about yourself.
