2yoon’s Official Debut
Basically, 2yoon was formed under Cube Entertainment as the first subunit of 4Minute and they are also known as the one and only.

The idea for creating 2yoon came up after Gayoon and Jiyoon appeared together in the 2011 United Cube in London. At that time, the fans also thought that the two of them looked like twins, not to mention that their names were similar, as well as their matching abilities in singing.
Meanwhile, the group made their debut performance through M! Countdown on January 18th, 2013. Not only that, but the mini-album includes five tracks such as “Nightmare,” “Why Not,” “Black Swan,” “SeSeSe,” and “24/7.” 2yoon successfully made their debut and emphasized their vocal skills, which also gained them a lot of compliments from the fans. The group was active from 2013 to 2016.
