4Minute Profile

Since their success with ‘Hot Issue’, 4Minute released their debut Korean album entitled ‘4Minutes Left’. As rookies, they already received a lot of attention because of their music style and entertaining performances.

Up until the group disbanded in June of 2016, 4Minute released a lot of singles and albums both in Korean and Japanese languages. They also went on to participate in a lot of variety shows and guestings, as well as win multiple awards in Korean pop music.

Cube Entertainment was unsuccessful in getting the members of the band to renew their contracts. Thus, 4Minute officially said goodbye to their 4NIAs. Luckily, we have this 4Minute Members Profile to remember them by when they were still one group.
