Jinusean return after decade
Jinusean, one of the country’s first ever hip-hop duos, will release a new digital single in April — their first in 11 years.
According to YG Entertainment, the duo’s agency, Jinusean are adding their final touches to the upcoming record.
Having started out in 1997, Jinusean was the first successful duo produced by YG, which is home to musicians like Big Bang, 2NE1 and Psy.
However, after releasing an album in 2004, Jinu and Sean, the two members of the duo, stopped performing until a recent appearance on a special episode of the popular TV show “Infinite Challenge.”
Popular musicians from the 1990s got together and sang their old hits for the episode, allowing viewers in their 30s and 40s to revisit the good old days.
During the group’s break, Sean has been taking the initiative in volunteer work by donating to and fundraising for the underprivileged.
Along with Jinusean, other artists from YG, including Big Bang and iKON, will release their new albums in the first half of this year.
