Summary: 4Minute debuted on June 18, 2009 with five members: Nam JiHyun, Heo GaYoon, Jeon JiYoon, Kim HyunA, and Kwon SoHyun.  They’re pretty popular now, and did a collaboration with Amerie for the song “Heard ‘Em All” on her Asian version of her fourth album.  HyunA has become very popular, having done solo work as well as collaborating with various members of B2ST, as well as Block B’s Zico. Find 4Minute’s discography here.

To be perfectly honest, we still don’t really care much for the other 4Minute members.  Well, rather than say “don’t care for” I should just say “haven’t learned.”  I’ve got Velexa approving all my pictures because she’s better at recognizing faces.  We like 4Minute’s music; we just haven’t learned any of the members except HyunA yet.
