Earlier this month, girl groupÂ C-realÂ shot to the top of media headlines after being toted as the â€˜five-memberÂ IUâ€˜.
Produced byÂ Choi Kap Won, the mastermind behind IUâ€™s success, C-real has been in the making for two years now. The group is comprised of membersÂ Chemi, Re Dee, Effie, Ann J, andÂ Lenny, who recently introduced themselves through an interview with E-Daily.
The girls began,Â â€œThe public may not be used to us yet, but we want to get C-realâ€™s name known by the end of the year. Weâ€™d be grateful to be given any nickname for our group, but ultimately, we just want to be known as C-real. We may be lacking since itâ€™s our first time promoting, but weâ€™re going to try hard to show our music and who we are.â€
Chemi (18) is the teamâ€™s leader, and she confessed that her chubby cheeks are her complex.Â â€œMy chubby cheeks are my complex, but Iâ€™m trying to turn it into a charm,â€Â she said.
Rapper Re Dee (17) revealed that sheâ€™s the teamâ€™s energizer. â€œI have an excessively positive personality, and am prone to making a lot of mistakes.â€Â She continued,Â â€œThe other four members take care of me really well, so I love living in the dorm with them rather than on my own.â€
Ann J (16) has a unique hobby of fixing electronic appliances while Effie (17) is said to resemble IU or evenÂ SNSDâ€˜sÂ YoonAÂ upon first glance. Lastly, the groupâ€™sÂ maknae, Lenny (15), is said to be like the teamâ€™s breath of fresh air.
The girls are currently promoting their title track, â€œNo No No No Noâ€œ.
