JNation All-Star Show 2013
Zhen Zhen | On 08, Jun 2013
JNation Entertainment will be staging their first joint concert featuring k-pop girl group D-UNIT, Soloist C-Luv, Rapper J’Kyun & Rex D, Youtube Sensations Jason Chen & Clara C and Local Artiste Nick Yeo . It will be in line with the JNation Music Festival Week .
The festival will be a first of its kind, bringing together a Korean idol group, hip-hop artistes, local artistes as well as YouTube stars for a collaborative stage in Singapore.
D-UNIT is a k-pop girl group under D-Business Entertainment. However, the group’s concept is that of ever-changing members, with new members introduced for each new comeback. Jeon Woo Ram (Ram), Kwang Su Jin (Zin) and Jung Yoojin (UJin), the three original members, debuted with a punch in August 2012. The group portrays a tough androgynous image with title track <I’m Missing You> and follow-up single <Luv Me>.
In February 2013, they were joined by guest member Byeon Seungmi (JNey) who is a member of GP Basic. Promoting as 4 members now, the group returns with a second album <Affirmative Chap 1> produced by Block B’s Zico. The title track <Talk To My Face> veers towards a brighter cuter feel, a contrast to their original image.
The follow-up <Affirmative Chap 2> is estimated to be released in June 2013. In time for the concert perhaps!
South Korea’s Hip-Hop prince J’Kyun and rapper Rex D are under the label Romantic Factory. Both were in Singapore to perform at the annual event – Music Matters Live 2012 and also participated in MU:CON Kpop Concert 2012 in Seoul.
