Dalmatian Pimp Post!

DALMATIAN PIMP POST

About:

Dalmatian is a six-membered Korean pop idol boyband under Monkey Punch Entertainment and IS Entermedia. It consists of three rappers (Inati, DayDay, Dari) and three vocalists (Jisu, Drama, Youngwon). All of the members are legal with the oldest being the leader Inati (29) and the youngest being Drama (19). Dalmatian officially debuted on Mnet Countdown on September 2nd with their first digital single, Round 1. They're most closely associated with hip hop artist MC Mong as he was the one to personally recruit and bring all the members together. Although the members have been training for over five-six years, Dalmatian was first mentioned back in December 2009 as a five-member group which included Inati, DayDay, Dari, Jisu, and Simon. Since then, they've featured in several of MC Mong's songs (Dalmatian Love, Roban Jula, Circus) as well as participated in MC Mong's solo concert.

When Dalmatian's Round 1 MV was released on September 1, 2010, Dalmatian officially debuted as a six-member group with Simon no longer in the group while Drama and Youngwon were added in. They now have their own reality show on MNET called "Dalmatian's Manager Goes on Strike" which follows them as they figure out ways on how to promote themselves without the help of a manager.

Dalmatian came back on February 14th, 2011 with their first mini-album, "Dalmatian's 1st Mini-Album," their first showcase, and a few name changes (Drama → Daniel; Jisu → Jeesu). For their first mini-album promotions, Dalmatian will be simultaneously promoting their title songs "Lover Cop" and "The Man Opposed" simultaneously.

Why the name?:

Blame MC Mong for giving this six-member group their name. The official reasoning behind their name is that, just like the dog breed, the members are "are very loyal, never shameful, have an outgoing personality, and are free-spirited." Again, just like the dog, they promise to be loyal and 100% committed to their fans and their music.

To quote MC Mong, "Honestly, I made the name without thinking much about it..^^ I just wanted them to work with music that had character. Dogs honestly don't betray their owners. They're always loyal and so I just wanted them to serve the public in not losing their rookie state of mind and focus on music. That's why I named them Dalmatian..^^"

Facts:

All of the members have gone through five years of basic training.

Dari’s father had a dream that God told him to name his son Dari. With a quiet and calm personality, he has a perfect six pack along with muscles made on his slightly small skinny body frame. His body is naturally the type to build muscles easily. When he eats, the food doesn’t go to fats but builds into muscle with the slightest work out. This is why he instead does weight training. In other words, he has a gifted body.

Twitter: @youngjeesu

The Underdog Jisu

He is the most popular member amongst Dalmatian. He is the underdog that will let Dalmatian be known the most amongst all the members. Jisu is very greedy when it comes to music. Since he’s god at playing piano, he can compose very well and his high-pitched voice is another addition to his charms. His dream is to have a song composed solely by him to be included in an album.

Twitter: @dalyoung_1

Innocent Soul Youngwon

The meaning behind his stage name is that he will forever be in the young state of mind in climbing his way up to the best spot as he will forever let himself be known widely. Youngwon’s charm is that he has a pretty face along with a cute smile. It was difficult for him more than it was for the other members to make a fierce face. When we told him to get angry, it was just awkward for him. He said that he’s always smiling so it was hard to get angry. Being a beastly idol was definitely a new transformation for him.

Placed 1st in Busan Youth Song Festival

Witty Guy Drama:

He gave himself the name Drama with the meaning that he wanted to make various types of music like they do in an actual drama. With his innocent appearance, he is able to make his surroundings happy with his wittiness. He also livens up the atmosphere with his cute eye smiles and playful words. Seeing the members take off their clothes naturally, he said, “Give me a sleeveless top to wear because my body is sleazy.”

Where did you find all of this information?I mean it's hard finding stuff about them on the internet.

LOL IT BECAME A FULL-BLOWN PIMP POST!!!!! Thank you for this~ ♥♥♥♥♥

sdfgj I still can't pick a real favorite. But all of them are gorj! <3 *___*
You did such an awesome job!! :DDDDD

(Wouldn't it be good to mention that Daniel's close to some idols as Yoseob (they even had a song together), Nicole, Jessica or Amber?)
yea i was planning to add that in when i get to it. im still editing this. ^^

i want to add in a facts section for all of them. IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SHARE WITH ME PLEASE DO!!
LOL Sorry, I didn't know that you were still editing it xDDD

I don't have anything else. There isn't a lot of information about them :(. Daniel's friendship with Yoseob is something that everyone knows and about Nicole, Jessica and Amber it was something that could be seen in their show. And since Nicole is also my bias I saw some interactions between them in twitter.
I think I've read somewhere from where they know each other. I may search for it.
YEA I GOT LAZY XD

yea i plan to eventually go through every artical i can find on them and add to this. just not today XD
I think I slowly began to like this group and their songs ^_^
Nicely done m'dear! In fact, I pimped you out a bit as I sent this entry to one of my friends as she's been getting into Dalmatian. In all, thank you so much and keep up the excellent work! :D
