On July 1, Unnies' song "Shut Up", which we've seen them put together on KBS' 'Unnies' Slam Dunk', hit #1 on all 8 major real-time music charts. On the all-kill, Min Hyo Rin commented, "I never even thought it'd be #1 on a music chart. I'm thankful to all of you who've watched over Unnies."

She added, "To the members - You all suffered a lot because of me. I'm sorry, and I Love you. I'm thankful to producer J.Y. Park, who created a good song and stage for us. I'll do my best not to make a mistake during our 'Music Bank' performance."

Take a look at Unnies' first performance of "Shut Up" on 'Music Bank' here, and stay tuned for the full MV (teaser here)!

Considering that there was only 1 pro in the group (arguably 2) and most of them had NO musical training at all, it was pretty good. I liked it and liked it even more because of the story in the show.

HyoRin was a trainee, well pre-trainee at JYPE before she quit in 1998

hiroonakamura Friday, July 1, 2016

as usual, songs from the tv-shows become huge hits regardless if they are great songso r not. this is the new trend in korea. OSTs and songs from units from tv-shows

Royal_Penguin hiroonakamura Friday, July 1, 2016

nope , tv shows is not that stupid to allow bad song played in their show ..... they have profesional editing and sound director

MOM_IS_BACK Friday, July 1, 2016

Unnies fighting love u .

melalabanana Friday, July 1, 2016

Hope they won something next week and also let's hope they get to perform at KBS Gayo Daejun

MOM_IS_BACK melalabanana Friday, July 1, 2016

that was their first and last stage lol

Bella_Strand MOM_IS_BACK Friday, July 1, 2016

Seriously? Hmm... pity

melalabanana MOM_IS_BACK Friday, July 1, 2016

It's not the last if they were invited for the end of the year festival. You never know.

Winston Bella_Strand Friday, July 1, 2016

It was allowed on Music Bank, only cos Unni's Slam Dunk is a KBS show hence its allowed on a similar TV station programme. The other music shows like MBC's Music Core and SBS Inkigayo wont invite them as the group indirectly promotes another TV station variety show. Which is why IOI was not allowed on SBS and MBC also, due to the relationship with Produce 101 the show.

Bella_Strand Winston Friday, July 1, 2016

Ahh... i see. now it make sense

Bella_Strand Friday, July 1, 2016

The Unnies / Sister Slam Dunk / KBS hit a jackpot on this project. They should be thankfull to JYP indeed. Hit Melon chart roof for hours and stays at no.1 until now.

pianoman Bella_Strand Friday, July 1, 2016

that ₩10000 jackpot song!

Bella_Strand pianoman Friday, July 1, 2016

Seriously? The budget is only US10 dollar? lol

ilikeJB Bella_Strand Friday, July 1, 2016

I think the budget is more but for broadcast fun they made it a 10 dollar song. In JYP's appearance contract they probably included his cut for the song royalties, just like when he did Infinite Challenge with Yoo Jae Suk.

Bella_Strand ilikeJB Friday, July 1, 2016

I hope so... coz this is a killer song. as in 1am KST it's still at no.1

Winston Bella_Strand Friday, July 1, 2016

The budget is not $10, the song's fee was $10, they have a separate budget for MV and costumes, but it was indeed low budget because the cameras and crew are "free" as in from the variety show, the members could afford their OWN clothes, and the MV mainly used their own cast and also friendly inclusion of Park Jin Young and Yoo Hui Yeol was are both good friends and agreed to help out, hence it was free.

ilikeJB Winston Friday, July 1, 2016

Nah, He's a businessman. They must have agreed to something off the show as well. Plus it wasn't only JYP's song, it was another producer's as well. He can't really sell the song for 10 bucks only. The unnies might pay 10 bucks fee on broadcast for fun variety but KBS probably paid him more for royalties and producing fees off camera. He is JYP and the other producer is the producer for Gangnam Style.

Bella_Strand Friday, July 1, 2016

Ic... thanks for the replies. I bet none of parties involved had participated on how big this song going to be lol

ilikeJB Bella_Strand Friday, July 1, 2016

I think JYP predicted it. He did brag about how him and the other PD have only collaborated on hit songs and was proud enough to say this song could be a big hit. The unnies has the backup of being variety show in KBS. It ought to be a hit, which is particularly why I think JYP wants to do it. He knows it would garner attention. Plus, like Conan and Infinity Challenge, JYP gives zero production cost but maximal profit as the producer. Not a bad decision at all and the good thing is he also gives quality as a trade.

Winston ilikeJB Friday, July 1, 2016

The fact that the song is in his possession, might mean he bought it from the other guy after it was created, like i said, due to lack of info, we can be arguing all we like based on assumptions and neither of us will be convinced.

Winston ilikeJB Friday, July 1, 2016

I think he didnt know because the song was made 5 years ago, if he had an idea how to use it, he would have already used it for his own team, be it for miss A or TWICE etc. However as he said, he found the song too "strong" for a girl group to use, asking the other person to SHUT UP. I think he think it fit them as Jessi was in it, and other girl crush members like Kim Sook and Mi Ran are also in it, if its made up of Tiffany, Min Hyo Rin, the song may not have worked without the "fierce rapping" from Jessi, which was the highlight of the song i think, and Kim Sook/Mi Ran, the 2 oldest unni telling others to SHUT UP, kind of suits the song more. I think JYP realised it could be a hit, when the Unni Slam Dunk was broadcast showing them rehearsing and people on the streets were gradually getting a hang of the song after 3-4 weeks of the show, even before the song was released, people are already famailar with parts of the song, like "Battery has died, ..etc" He realised the show has somehow marketed the song without even a MV or any marketing $$ put in.

He said on the show he did the song with the other PD while going for a drink. He didn't buy it. He had deleted his copy and the other PD still has it in his possession. He also said while the song was great but it was too strong for any girl groups which is why he didn't give it to anyone. He knows it can't be a hit with just anyone. When Unnies came in, he decided on that song and rearrange it for them. My point was not the song itself is expected to be a hit but the song+singers+situation is expected to be a hit. He knows with all those combination and circumstances there will be profit. He did say before in another show with YG that he puts money on where the profit are.
