Jinusean (Korean: 지누션) is a South Korean hip hop duo signed to YG Entertainment. The duo, which is made up of Kim Jin-woo (also known as Jinu) and Noh Seung-hwan (also known as Sean), debuted in 1997 and rose to fame with the single, "Tell Me." They are considered pioneers of Korean hip hop.[1][2][3]

History[edit]

Prior to forming Jinusean, Sean worked as a back-up dancer for legendary k-pop group Seo Taiji and Boys in the early 1990s, and Jinu debuted as a solo artist with the song, "I Was The Captain" in 1994.[4] The two debuted as Jinusean with the single, "Gasoline," in 1997 under the guidance of YG Entertainment CEO and former Seo Taiji and Boys member Yang Hyun-suk and former Deux member Lee Hyun Do.[2] Their second single, "Tell Me" (featuring singer Uhm Jung-hwa), was the duo's first hit and propelled them to stardom.[1] In 2015, YG Entertainment announced Jinusean would make a comeback, along with BIGBANG. On April 18, 2015, Jinusean celebrated their 18th anniversary as a group. Their comeback single, "One More Time," had been a success for those who waited 11 years for a comeback.[5]
