About the music::
Their lastest single “닭발 (chicken feet)” is a sad ballad with a sterotype breaking concept. There is an unofficial stereotype that you have to wear a suit or be dressed up to sing a ballad. They wanted to show that even manly men can breakdown and sing a sad song. It is a song that when you pay attention to the lyrics you realize that even something as simple as chicken feet can be sad. “잔치 (happy party)” was meant to be a fight song for the Korean team during the World Cup.

Q & A::
Q: How did you meet each other?
A: They first met at a talent show in 2006, but didn’t keep in touch with each other. They met again while Jung Mo was on the streets hunting for people to help him sing for a friends wedding proposal. They ran into each and Min Koo said sure he’d help. At some point Crayon Pop’s manager saw them practicing and had them meet the CEO.
Q: How come up with group name?
A: In Korea when people jump out of nowhere they usually say 짠. They are using that to say that they are popping out at you with music.
Q: When did you decided to do music?
A: In high school girls started giving Min Koo their numbers after he started singing. As a result, he thought to himself that this must be something I should do if I want to get married in the future. Jung Mo’s teacher would punish students or talking during class by making them sing. The students and teacher were surprised at how good h was. This made him think that “oh I must be able to sing better than most.” So, he started doing auditions and talent shows.
Q: Future plans?
A: Any stage where they can sing only live would be awesome. They are continuing their chicken feet promotions. And maybe another album later in the year.
