The Issue Makers, Trouble Maker

Not many teams in recent years have spurred this much controversy as this one. This two-member unit made issues with the two teaser videos it revealed before the actual release of its single on December 1, and its short performance at the 2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards made the eyes of audiences around the world widen in shock with a sexy onstage kiss.



This is Trouble Maker, with members Hyuna of 4Minute and Jang Hyun Seung of B2ST.

Everything from their couple airport styles, the touches they exchange onstage, their teasing kisses and their backup dancers’ dance moves, never fails to give people something to talk about. Soon they’ll be making issues just by breathing loudly onstage.

Of course, not all the feedback is favorable, but like showbiz officials always say, ‘It’s better to have bad press than none at all’, implying that these celebrities aren’t that gloomy about the attention no matter what kind of attention it is
