 Jewelry's History


Jewelry debuted in 2001 with their first album Discovery . After less-than-stellar sales of the first album, two of the singers were replaced. A year later, their second album, Again , was released, with much better results. Full of strong R&B ballads (as opposed to the sexy dance songs that were popular at that time), the album quickly yielded two high-charting singles — "Again" and "Tonight" — which started the group's rise to popularity. This was quickly followed by their third album Beloved , which had a very cutesy theme. Their first single "니가 참 좋아" ("I Really Like You") was very poppy and had Jewelry adopt a cutesy concept to match the song, with colorful outfits and perky dances. The title track,Be My Love, was also promoted. Even though album sales forAgainandBelovedwere great, the group was unhappy with their current image, and did not want to be known for only their cute and innocent songs.

Entry into Japan

After the success of their second album, Jewelry left for Japan to start on their career there in 2004 with their first singleKokoro ga Tomaranaiunder the independent label Giza Studio . After releasing a few materials there with mediocre sales, the group eventually left to return to their native country to release their fourth album.
