The members of the new unit that YG ENTERTAINMNET has been suggesting are found to be BOM and LEE HI.
According to YG’s announcement on the 16 this month, the two have formed a unit team named “BOM & HI” and releases a song that is a reinterpretation of Mariah Carey’s “ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU”, one of the most loved Christmas season songs, at midnight on the 17.

2NE1’s main vocalist BOM is popular for her heavy and unique vocal and LEE HI has also been under the spotlight with her unique and appealing voice and matured talent, so a great synergy effect is expected.
The new unit is formed as a collaboration project between YG ENTERTAINMENT and Samsung Music, newly opened by Samsung Electronics in Korea.
The new song by the two will be exclusively released on Samsung Music for three days from the midnight on the 17 and will be disclosed on all on-line music-streaming sites from the 20.
