They made their debut with the song “Hot Issue” on June 15, 2009. The name of their fans is “4 Nia” and their official color is purple pearl. In December 2010 4Minute released their first Japanese album, Diamond, and their second Korean album “4minutes left” one year later in 2011. They have also released mini-albums such as For Muzik (2009), Hit Your Heart (2010), 4Minute World (2014).
In 2010 they collaborated with Brow Eyed Girls for the single “Once Again, Daehanminguk”, and in 2011, they also collaborated with Beast and G.Na for the single “Fly So High”.
4minute has won lots of awards because they are a very talented group! The group has won twice at the Seoul Music Awards, four times at the Golden Disk Awards, and much more!
In my opinion 4minute is one of the best Korean girl bands and I recommend that you give them a listen. Their songs are really amazing, upbeat and refreshing. It’s always a pleasure to listen to them. So don’t hesitate to support them because they definitely deserve it!
In July 2015, Cube Entertainment announced 4minute official disbandment. HyunA will remain under the label’s care to pursuit her solo career while the other members have decided to go on their own ways.
