160805 Crayon Pop’s 1st Full Album ‘DIY’-ed

As a girl group, Crayon Pop will be challenging themselves to produce their first DIY album.

Crayon Pop will spearhead the production for the upcoming full album that will be released for sale in September. Crayon Pop’s members will be in charge of the title track’s video directing and filming.

According to company representatives, “Crayon Pop members will directly take part in producing the first full album. The entire video making process will be directly released to fans on Naver’s V Line. Way would be in charge of promotion, marketing strategy as well as the MV. Ellin and Geummi are responsible for the costumes, while Choa is in charge of hair styles and make up. Soyul will be in charge of the album cover’s design and trademark design. We believe that doing so will be highly meaningful for the members’ first full album.”

  • Giang Nguyễn Hoàng

  • IINexus ShineII

    Woohoo “Way would be in charge of promotion, marketing strategy” buy it or you will be end up with Way’s girl.

    • ezekiel

      man.. i better prepare my money for the album to safe my life from way’s girls.. XD

  • ezekiel

    wow… that’s great.. now i know what soyul mean by “designing”.^^

  • ezekiel

    wait a minute ellin and geummi in charge of costume!? you know what costume will it be then..XD

    • MadOnCP

      “Hey Mister” it will be “Sexy Sexy Sexy”.

    • Mygiwi

      Bikini ?

      • ezekiel

        nooooo.. they can be sexy without bikini.. and i doubt soyul will agree with it.. because i think she’s a bit timid.. ^^

        • Mygiwi

          Ha ha ha ! B-) it was a joke. But it could be an Ellin’s idea. She shared with us her summer in a bikini . haha. About Soyul indeed we saw her timidity in the KiSS episodes.

          • ezekiel

            i know bro,,^^

          • robertrickett

            CPTV Season 2 ep 5 at 7:36. Ellin loves bikini’s. I could see her opening “Ellin’s Bikini Store” in the future, but I don’t think she would risk sharing the bikini spotlight with her sisters and their smokin’ Mom. hmmm I might be wrong.

  • Dancing Queen

    I’m not sure if it’s a promotion strategy of the new ceo.
    Crayon pop takes part in producing for themselves because Chrome lacks money to hire common experts. With Ellin and Geummi responsible for the costumes, the next comback obviously will be a sexy concept.

    • ezekiel

      i think it’s not just about money.. they need something extraordinary to attract the attention from the korean fans after such a long comeback in korean market.. this is a great strategy IMHO.

    • h4iumb1

      They always took part in producing themselves after the first Chrome Entertainment-shakeup (prior to Bar Bar Bar), so I don´t think that this is a strategy. I remember during Ueeh-promotion they did a show together with Orange Caramel and when Crayon Pop explained how they chose their outfit, the dance routines and all that stuff, they OC-girls were surprised how much input Crayon Pop had because for them this was all decided on by their management.

    • robertrickett

      Maybe so, but maybe not. I remember a few days ago Ellin said, “There’s alot to think about. Crayon Pop is on a mission and on a mission they usually win.

  • h4iumb1

    They never were and never will be the typical idols, who are in most cases just designed products of the management. So this is just the next logical step for the girls. I hope they will succeed, but I am afraid Korea is not ready for this much girl power…

    • WMoksg

      Well said h4iumb1, they’re just too incredible as a “kpop gîrlband”. They’ll have to win over the “majority diehard kpop teens and young adults ” typically aged 14 – 24 that are heavily influenced and chasing the pop cultures of the day, the majority that has been moving the sales and music charts. Bbb was somewhat able to win some over but as we know kids and their parents are the main supporters, even working adults and ahjumas. The follow up Uh-ee didn’t go too well with the in crowds but was more pleasing to the kids and mature folks and promotion was also shortened due to the Sewol incident. FM would’ve taken over the world if it has been released by an American girlband. Yes it côuld’ve done better too îf it was released in Japan by a Japanese girlband. I do feel quite sorry for our hardworking and exceptionally talented CP. Let’s hope this time they’re able to get a great comeback that will capture the hearts of everyone …. for beyond the Shadows of doubt, i know that they’re fantastic enough to achieve it 😀

    • DIA_Chaeyeon_fan

      Crayon Pop might as well be called Crayon Punk, because the way they do things is so punk rock, and kpopalypse agrees:

      https://kpopalypse.wordpress.com/2014/02/28/crayon-punk/

      “DIY ethos is part of what defines punk. Many of the early groups couldn’t get record deals because nobody would touch them because their singing/playing was so shit, so the groups said “fuck all these people saying we can’t do this or that, nobody will ever give us a break, let’s just figure out how to do this shit ourselves” and started making their own records, booking their own shows, and touring whole countries by sleeping on people’s floors.

      Plenty of people didn’t want to touch Crayon Pop either, and they couldn’t get on music shows, so they performed outdoors with portable ghetto-blasters in all types of weather to find another way to bring their music to the people.”

      • Nando

        I agree, the only difference obviusly is that crayon pop was no shity at all, saturday night is a nice song, bing bing and dancing queen are my 2 favorites, so i will never understand why they were rejected. I hope they’re comeback gains the recognizement they truely diserve. I can’t love them more.

  • Noor Ahmed

    cool

  • WMoksg

    A very welcoming and refreshing news to us dedicated fans. Not too sure if it has to do with the new management’s budget, but i know CP possessed the talent and ability to call the shots if they’re given the opportunity to. Reasons being 1. Way is a very intelligent and charming girl with plenty of flare in making great marketing and sales pitch. 2. Ellin’s exposure as a clothing model and Geummi’s balance would ensure the best possible outfits. 3. With Soyul, you can get a competent and standard safe and nice traditíonal trademark and designs. 4. Princess ChoA will make sure the girls “shines” and look their best like princesses would …. gee , CP is the perfect package <3

    • ezekiel

      well said..^^

  • I just ♥♥♥♥♥ Crayon Pop!

    Feeling like…

  • “Since it is you managing CP’s hairstyle for ‘Full Album’, I want to say to you for don’t cut your hairs even it just 1 cm… All you guys are much beautiful with long hair, listen to me, LONG HAIR. ♥♥♥♥♥” – LR :v kekekekekeke

    • apieth

      Cpop still Pretty even if they use bald concept :p

      • ezekiel

        please no bald… LOL.. XD

      • Scary to think how it would be, but I agree with you, CP girls are pretty anyway.

  • Brandon Lim

    Don’t make them worry too much about these behind the scenes stuff please. They need to look their best in front of the cameras, not growing frown lines behind…

    • CP Ranger

      Don’t worry. This is going to be the most meaningful come back for them because they have almost full creative control. Even if it doesn’t gain mass popularity, it will mean a lot to Crayon Pop and all the die hard fans who have been with them since their guerrilla days.

  • Juliana Pinzon

    OMG, es increíble… Ya podemos haces Memes.
    Me fui de para atrás,,Lo espero con ansias.

  • robertrickett

    This is perfect. Way is a courageous genius and I feel very confident with her taking on the business responsibilities of their album. (I was secretly wishing Way was CEO, before there old CEO resigned). I’m happy the current leadership recognized the girls potential and I’m proud of the girls for taking the reigns of their careers and getting things done. If the album is a hit, they will, have broken the Kpop (FM) mold. If it’s not, it will still be truly theirs and fans like myself will cherish it.

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      Madame Way would make an interesting CEO…

  • apieth

    Shit~ what things that this group can’t do?
    They always breaking the limit of the normal girl groups.
    Girl group goals~
    With the support from Way’s girls, this comeback will slay your life.
    So SHUT UP AND PREPARE YOUR MONEY!! 😎

  • CP Hwaiting

    this is kind of BADASS!! 😀

  • Firefall

    This new management must have a lot of confidence and trust in our girls’ talents and work ethnics to give them the lead role for this major project. No matter how much money it will safe or how big a promotional opportunity it will be, if the company don’t believe they can do it, they won’t let them. I don’t know what involvement they had with Chrome and Crayon pop prior to taking over, but they seem to know the girls well.

    • CP Ranger

      That was very similar to what I was thinking as well.

      • Firefall

        So glad to see that the new ceo can see the potential in the girls and give them the opportunity to grow & develop new skills. Initially, I was concern CP would loose their creative input, but this new team took the best part of the old Chrome and take it up a notch or two. No ones perfect, but so far, I’m seeing more things I like than dislike about them.

  • robertrickett

    All recording artists long for artistic control of their work. It looks like Crayon Pop is getting complete artistic control. Even if it landed in their lap by circumstance, it’s a real blessing. I really believe Crayon Pop has the talent to produce a great album and promote it successfully, I’m just hoping that if Way does the filming, she doesn’t drop the camera, like in Lonely Christmas. I’m so excited, I can’t contain myself.

    • IINexus ShineII

      LOL if Way drop the camera, We can only saw thier legs.

  • CP Ranger

    I was curious as to what concept they would come back with. But now I know. That concept is:
    Baek Bo Ram
    Kim Min Yeong
    Huh Min Jin
    Huh Min Seon
    Park Hye Kyeong
    Sa Rang Hae Yo
    Keu Rae Yong Pop!
