About the group

D-Unit is a female hip-hop group under D-Business Entertainment. The company's CEO Lee Young Hak--going by the name "DM" as part of a rap duo known as "YMGA"--released an album in 2008 called "Made In R.O.K" under YG Entertainment. D-Unit is being billed as Lee Young Hak's brainchild. The company is reported to have spent years preparing the group for their debut. Early on, there was speculation that the group had been set up so that there are two permanent members and an additional third member that is set to change with every album. The original lineup of 3 included Jeon Woo Ram (RAM) and Kwang Su Jin (ZIN) as the "permanent members", and Jung Yoojin (UJin) as the one temporary. Since their debut, however, they have stuck with the three original members, while mentioning that there are various trainees that may be added at a later time. In February 2013, D-Business announced the addition of a new member, who turned out to be Janey (stylized as Jney) of GP Basic fame.

The first video says "I Missin' You" instead of "I'm Missin' You"   :?

Over all looks interesting...I must say, South Korea record companies should be happy, this is like a good summer for them. New groups, New release from older groups - and let's not forget the drama with T-ara. 

Looking forward to D-Unit and their release date 8.1.12  :twothumbs

The song sounds good from the teasers. I'm glad they finally set a date; I usually don't get too hyped for new debuts but I have high hopes for them. The rotating member thing is a pretty original idea for Kpop, it should make for a lot more anticipation surrounding their comebacks.

Wooram is so cute.

I'm really liking how "I'm Missing You" is sounding so far, Wooram is pretty cute though she does look like she could kick some ass. :lol:

Hopefully the "2NE1 copiers!!11" comments won't be as much.

Yea I'm liking "I'm Missing You" so far as well. It does sound 2NE1-ish but the producer for that song I believe for that song IS Teddy Park. So it's more Teddy's style more than it is 2NE1.

I'm digging this. alot. Especially that acoustic cover. Seems like the girls can sing and I finally have Jeon family member I can obsess about again (</3 Boram </3)

in regards to the 2ne1 copiers comments.. lets not mince words here, there aren't any wholly original idea's left in pop music and that's nothing pop should be ashamed of. we all got our swagger from those around us.

sig not by Stryfe... but I don't have the heart to remove the shout-out

I'm liking these girls, they seem fun...and I can't even count how many times I've looped the 60s teaser and the Crush acoustic XD

I hope they do well :P

lol wat

Wasn't this song acoustic like 4 teasers ago? :lol:

Sounds pretty good, for a debut song though it doesn't leave a big impression but still nice. Choreography is pretty cool.

EDIT:

Just now read the temporary member switch and well, that's interesting. At least the tell you about it instead of springing on anyone at the last moment.

Ok, so I was right about the 2 permanent/1 temp member lineup. Recent articles haven't mentioned that, it makes me wonder what happens to the temp member afterwards? I like the song, very YG-ish. In fact, I even heard that it was originally supposed to be a Big Bang song. While I was watching the MV I can almost tell which parts of the song was supposed to be sung by which BB member. RAM is cute! (obviously cuz Boram is cute too :P) I just can't get over the fact that she looks exactly like Boram and how I wished so many times Boram would be a lot like this in T-ara.

I think they'll do well on their own, right now they get an extra boost for being associated with YG people, but they look like they can stand on their own. Esp. when they have an active role in their music making such as writing and composing, definitely a big plus for me.  :twothumbs Can't wait to see more of them!

Yeah, most of what I've been seeing is "LOL FAKE CL FAKE DARA AND FAKE BOM D:", but most people seem generally positive about them while acknowledging that everything about them seems very YG.



I'm actually very much enjoying the album...and I like UJin, so I dunno how I'm gonna feel when she gets replaced XD



One of my favorites, probably because of the acoustic, and Dok2  :lol:

Oh man, that cover...




For those who didn't recognize. I'm pretty sure this won't sound like Slayer, though. :P

But anyway, good times! I dug their first release quite a bit!

Well, they only had one release and this just seems to be a single rather than an album which is where they said they would replace UJin w/ another member.

Excited for their comeback~ /o/
