Crayon Pop is a five-member South Korean girl group formed in 2012 under Chrome Entertainment. Formed in early 2012, the group consists of Gum-mi, Ellin, Way, Cho-a and Soyul. Crayon Pop debuted on June 24, 2012 with the release of both the Korean and Japanese music videos for their first single "Bing Bing", followed by the release of their first EP, "The 1st Mini Album".
Crayon Pop's popularity rose with the release of "Bar Bar Bar", which began to draw interest and went on to become viral due to their unique stage outfits and choreography. "Bar Bar Bar" gradually began to climb the Korean digital music charts, eventually reaching the upper positions of most major real time chart listings, including reaching number #1 on the weekly Billboard's Korea K-Pop Hot 100 for the first time after a full 6 weeks on release.
On 13 August 2013, Crayon Pop's agency Chrome Entertainment signed a partnership contract with Sony Music. Sony will be involved in the publishing of Crayon Pop's future albums as well as assisting in promotional activities both at home and overseas.
Crayon Pop will release their fifth single album 'Uh-ee' or 'Hey' on the March 31, 2014, and to gear their fans up for the release, shots from the album jacket have been released. The jacket takes on a magazine pictorial type of concept showing Crayon Pop's ramie fabric outfits, a fabric often used in traditional Korean clothing. They will perform their new single during their first comeback showcase with media outlets on the 28th and public showcase at Gwanghwamun Plaza on the 29th at 7 PM KST.
