7 member group, U-Kiss (Alexander, Soohyun, Kevin, Kibum, Eli, Dongho, Kiseop), who caused a craze with the 'Gangnam Dance' through 'Man Man Ha Ni'. These boys are back as men with stronger, more mature looks and intense charisma.
The U-Kiss members have shown off the talents in various programs, through music, variety, radio etc. The members are tired with their busy schedules but "we will be happy if we were busier and more tired", they revealed, laughing.
Popularity from 'Man Man Ha Ni' to 'Bingeul Bingeul'? It's still lacking!
U-Kiss, who received a lot of attention for the strong man dance in 'Man Man Ha Ni' as well as outstanding performances in variety programs during the 2nd half of 2009, is back this time with electronic hip-hop song, 'Bingeul Bingeul'. It has enthralled the fans with its addictive chorus and tornado dance.
In response to a question about the reactions of fans towards new song 'Bingeul Bingeul', Kibum said, "honestly, during our 1st and 2nd singles, people were not really aware of us. Our popularity started rising a little from 'Man Man Ha Ni'."
"Therefore, we honestly had great expectations for this album. Although we received a lot of love as compared to the beginning, it still seems like it's lacking," he added.
"Since 'Bingeul Bingeul' is the start, will it not get better?" said the ambitious Kibum.
Seeing ghosts is a sign of success? We rather not..
There are a few popular beliefs of signs on success in the singing industry. For example, constantly seeing ghosts in the recording studio or having unidentifiable sounds appearing in your music are some of the signs.
When asked if they saw any of such signs during their preparation for the new album, the members "no" together.
"During our 1st and 2nd album promotions, we often saw ghost-like figures or experienced sudden power failures. So while we said 'this is going to be a big hit', things didn't go as well as we expected."
"During 'Man Man Ha Ni', we didn't experience such things. But we received much better responses than we did for our previous albums. So in future, we hope we don't experience such believed signs of success."
