2PM vs TaeTiSeo next week’s K-pop sceneBy Korea Herald

Boy band 2PM already released its new single, “Go Crazy” on Monday, and the Girls’ Generation subunit TaeTiSeo plans to reveal its newest single “Holler,” which has more cheerful mood than previous hit song “Twinkle,” on Tuesday.
Fierce competition between the two groups is expected to dominate the nation‘s music charts.
2PM totally changed its image for its latest release. The group used to show off its charisma, but this time, the members behaved like comedians in their music video for “Go Crazy,” with dance moves such as the “motorcycle move” and funny faces.
Also, this is the first time the K-pop boy group released songs that are not composed by Park Jin-young. The single was produced by their own member Jun.K.
Music experts in the K-pop scene said the boy group seemed to put a lot of effort into the new album since success as a self-producing group depends on it.
2PM’s “Go Crazy” features house and disco beats and deals with conversations that happen while drinking. The song is a breath of fresh air to fans, since 2PM’s previous album featured sentimental feelings.
As the boy group’s rival on next week’s K-pop stages, TaeTiSeo is coming out with its first release in more than two years. Although it is a sub-group of Girls’ Generation, the group made as a big hit as the main group.
The three-member girl group achieved the triple crown (topping several Korean TV music programs for three consecutive weeks) with its previous hit song “Twinkle,” taking fourth position on the iTunes album chart, which was the first time a Korean singer or group made the top five of the chart.
TaeTiSeo’s new song, “Holler” has punk rhythm and is known as more cheerful than “Twinkle.”
Girls’ Generation recently drew attention for gossip about some of the members, but now the girl group is expected to gain more popularity for its music.
