Rainbow is a pretty new (November 2009) girlband by DSP Media (other groups from DSP: SS501, Kara and Sunha).
Their first song was Gossip Girl in November 2009. It was released on a 5-song mini-album.
In August 2010 DSP made a "digital single" with them simply called A. (pretty fucking awesome song)

Cho Hyun Young (조현영)

Birthday: 1991 August 11th
Position: Main vocal [She really is an amazing singer: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=iVdk0dQZkTo]
In Charge Of/Image Color: "The Dizzying Youngest", Yellow.
Education: Graduated from Shingwang Female High School
Talents: Chinese, Voice imitations (Yoon Moonshik)
Nickname arising from a shortcoming: After returning the dorm she becomes "superNATURAL" (meaning naked). The members thus started calling her "Cho Eh Jok," meaning Amazonian.
Weaknesses: Fear of heights, low alcohol tolerance

The members say she wakes up the latest in the morning, but can get ready in just 3 minutes.

Short stories to learn a little bit more about Hyunyoung:
She wants to have captivating eyes, so she really likes strong eyeliner
Her brother is currently in the army. In a broadcast she said that Oh Seunga was the one she would want to introduced to her brother (reason: genuine face), and picked Goo Woori as the one she'd want to introduce the least.
Earned the nickname of "overdoer" when she does her kitten impersonation.
She's very afraid of heights. Usually the younger ones take the upper bunk, but she is an exception and uses the lower one. In a broadcast where they were at a military training camp, when faced with the rope drop, she cried buckets of tears, but finally was still able to succeed.
She wishes she had a higher tolerance for alcohol, but she can't even take one glass (she's guessing that it's genetic because her mom has low tolerance as well). The members all witnessed this once after a DSP dinner--after drinking one glass of alcohol, she had no idea where she was or lived and just fell asleep on a sofa somewhere. [My plan will be to get her drunk in case I ever meet her]

Most information taken from www.prismatic7.com, a (probably the biggest) english Rainbow fanforum. The members there are real koreaboos though, constantly using korean terms like "oppa" (older brother, said by a female) etc. Looking at the threads where people post their own age it's no surprise though, since most of them are 13~16...

I like Rainbow. They have more '80s bombast than most K-Pop. This new song is pretty good, although A is better, IMO.

So I did some brief research and my God, Hyun Young is so damn cute. How did I not see this. Now you got to her first.

Updated the op with new information.

My favourite member is clearly Hyun Young, Woo Ri is my #2 (she's extremely hot) and Jae is my #3.


I cut the info on their new song from the op and rather have it here:

An audiorip of their new song "Mach" has been on youtube for a few days now.
I can't yet say if I like or dislike it. Right now I don't even know for sure where exactly the refrain starts and ends...
I think there is some pig-disgusting autotune involved around the segments of 1:10, but I can't tell for sure.
You can already find some live versions of it on YouTube.
And here we have some teaser photos. (for the [hopefully] upcoming music video I guess)

Not that anybody here besides me cares, but Rainbow are also going to jump to Japan:

From what I understood their first song will be "A" in September.
The commentators think they're sexy and call them the little sisters of KARA.

I've also heard they're going to be alternating out with Kara, so they'll never have to go up against each other, but I'm not sure it's official news.

Rainbow released their Japanese version of A today.

Unlike in Korea, they can get away with pulling their shirts up in Japan. Posted Image

Seems like they got a few new singles out in the past months:

To me:

Sweet dream:

But they're both pretty forgettable.
And, as much as I like her (except for her skinniness), Woori's raps don't help the songs at all.

This shit is INTENSE though !

They have a new song called "Sunshine":



They were using either some REALLY weird makeup, or horrible video effects on the eyes. And then there's that one that already has damn weird eyes anyway...

The song is average bubblegum pop.

Jisook and Hyunyoung have some kind of "sexy christmas, girls' wiki" thing going on:



I'm exactly not sure if this is geared towards men or women, but I'm leaning towards lustful guys.

Rainbow is back with a less colorful concept and a house sound in "Black Swan".

They really had a change with the Rainbow Blaxx and "cha cha" I love these kind of concepts and especially considering the members ages-- this suits them much better than cutesty stuff like "Tell me Tell me"

With sugar you mean cute concepts?
My first thought was "is he talking about... cocaine?". lol

I'm not into this song, it's missing a certain thing, but I very much agree that Rainbow is better off not doing cutesy stuff. I just can't look at Woori, Jaekyung and Hyunyoung and think of a cute concept that would fit them.

Yeah yeah I mean cuteness, I didn't notice this XD. In my language you would not think of cocaine


and for those 3 members, Hyunyoung is really cute but that girl was not maaade to be cute just look at those pics of 5 years ago on this thread, or her appearance on A-Jax - Insane with Jaekyung
