Chrome Entertainment's boy group K-Much dropped their debut MV for "Good to Go" earlier this month, and they recently sat down with Sports DongA to talk about their group name as well as their labelmates Crayon Pop.


On their name "K-Much" (Translation: Snakehead), member Loki said, "Of course, I felt averse to it. I told my parents, and they cried. They must have been really upset. However, as time passed, I got used to and attached to the name 'Snakehead.' I'm sure that as we diligently promote, the public will ease into the name. We will make it that way."


Kiu also mentioned their sunbae group, Crayon Pop: "Crayon Pop sunbaes are our guides, and our role models. They are the ones who blazed the trail for us. If it weren't for them, I wonder if we would have received this much interest even before our debut."


G.LOW said, "However, as we are becoming more recognized, a certain stereotype seems to be appearing too. Most people don't even watch our performances and think of us as Crayon Pop imitators, which makes me upset sometimes. I think it is something we need to overcome no matter what."

They also talked about how their title song "Good to Go" might be based on Crayon Pop's "Bar Bar Bar", but it was produced to have a more masculine sound. The members even wear tough-looking uniforms for the performances. Interestingly, though, Bornus revealed that they were originally going to wear various costumes that might even have snakehead figures on them. To their relief, Crayon Pop asked the chief to make the group look cool, which is how they got to wear tough uniforms instead.

It's called NOISE MARKETING and you idiots who like or even hate are just playing by their books, so even though they suck, props to their management for pulling off more PR than any random nugu debut boy band nowadays. ;

Never heard of them until now, but is it just me, or does the blond guy look just like Wilbur Pan? o_O

가물치 (gamulchi) is their name in Korean, I'm guessing that translates to Snakehead. I think K-Much is just supposed to be a "cool" way to romanize it. (I'm not a fan and don't know much about them so this is all just my guess.)

I don't get why you guys are complaining. These guys have great live vocals and their song is cool and catchy. If you still don't like the song, there are more songs in their album. If they like what they do, you have no right to complain and talk bad about them.
