 LPG (South Korean band)'s History

Debutedit

Their first album,Long Pretty Girls, was released in fall of 2005. Although most of the record consists of dance tracks, their first (and only) single from the album was called "캉캉 (Can Can)" a song performed in the " Can-can style". The novelty of the song brought them a lot of attention from the press, but neither the song nor the album were commercially popular. However, it has been referenced and parodied by many Korean variety shows, including SBS 'sX-Manand KBS 'sStar Golden Bell.

2006:Arm Pillowedit

), is quite different than "Can Can", having more of a Latin feel and a more rhythmic beat. Although limited promotional activities were done, the album sold poorly, entering at No. 33 on the Music Industry Association of Korea's monthly sales chart with 2,359 copies sold;it has since dropped off the chart.

2007:Princess of The SeaandWinter Storyedit

Even with poor sales of previous albums, LPG released a single in the summer of 2007. Titled "바다의 공주" ("Princess of the Sea"), it is a remake of comedian Park Myung-soo 's "바다의 왕자" ("Prince of the Sea"); the release contains both versions. The group promoted this song during the summer of 2007.

On December 13, 2007, LPG released a winter single, entitledWinter Story. The first track, "스키장 가는 길" ("The Road to the Ski Hill"), was their first promotional single.

The statement read, "They’ve received love calls from three major Japanese distribution companies, which we are looking over now. We predict that finalization of details – such as their Japanese agency and album release – will be done as early as next month. We received a lot of contract offers due to the fact that there aren’t any young enka singers like LPG in Japan, or for that matter, any enka singers made up into teams, so there’s a high potential for success."

In March 2011, they released the single and music video for "Angry", the Korean version of Yolanda Be Cool 's " We No Speak Americano ".[citation needed]

The video contained a "love scene" that many people found controversial, resulting in the company releasing a statement, saying "We put the bed scene in to represent two lovers that are deeply in love with each other and having a heart fluttering night. Don’t just look at that one part but rather the content in its whole."
