• I. Introduction

    FIFTY FIFTY (피프티피프티) is a four-member girl group under Attrakt Creative Group.

    The CEO of Attrakt, Jeon Hong-joon, had to sell his car to cover production costs after recording Fifty Fifty's debut album at a friend's studio, according to the South Korean outlet, The Korea Economic Daily.

    Quote from The Korea Economic Daily

    I hadn't even thought of Billboard. We had no money for global marketing, so I went around visiting local label companies and asked them to listen to our music at least once,

    Fifty Fifty eventually made their debut on November 18, 2022, with their first EP The Fifty.

    However, debuting late in 2022, which was a huge, competitive year for rookie girl groups the members felt immense pressure to do well.

    It would be a lie if I said that we weren’t pressured at all to join this long list of groups debuting in 2022. We felt a great responsibility, because we wanted to show ourselves and stand out amongst them. But we tried to put down that pressure and anxiety, and focused as much as possible to be ourselves, to dance and sing on stage. [We believed] that if we worked harder, then we would naturally be able to stand out.”

    And just three months after their debut, FIFTY FIFTY returned with their new single album ‘The Beginning: Cupid on February 24, 2023. Cupid swept fans off their feet across Twitter and TikTok, eventually reaching the ears and earning the praise of music critics both domestically and internationally.

    But the English language version of the song — dubbed the “Twin Version” — went nuclear on TikTok and Fifty Fifty found themselves with a global hit.
