Flashback Friday is back again… this time featuring Jinusean’s (지누션) 1997 hit with Uhm Jung Hwa (엄정화), Tell Me (말해줘)
The song is a hiphop dance song with mostly rapping except for the chorus which is sung by Uhm Jung Hwa. The song gained them quite a bit of attention (particularly because Uhm Jung Hwa was popular at the time too) due to it’s catchy chorus and easy dance.
Touted as one of the most successful hip hop groups of K-Pop, Jinusean debuted under YG Entertainment back in 1997. The group is made up of members Kim Jin-woo (김진우) (Jinu) and Noh Seung-hwan (노승환) (Sean). They released 5 albums through 2004 each having a a notable single. While they didn’t release anything new for about 11 years, they recently made a comeback in 2015 with Tell Me One More Time (한번 더 말해줘) Featuring Jang Han Na.
You can hear the song “Tell Me” in the intro of the video. The song isn’t really similar to the first song, just happens to have a similar title.
Even during their down time, they were pretty popular, and occasionally made appearances on shows.
