We’re taking this week’s K-Pop Battle in-house, as we throw JYP-trained buddies 2AM’s Jo Kwon and 2PM’s Wooyoung, who have momentarily left their idol group nests to fly solo, into the ring to see who comes out on top.

The two idol stars are clearly going for very different concepts for their respective solo debuts (although their new hairstyles are strangely similar), as Jo Kwon plays up his crazy kkab Kwon persona in I’m Da One, while Wooyoung—well, we’re still not quite sure what look he’s channeling, but it’s definitely darker and much more serious.

Jo Kwon

Based on Jo Kwon’s latest music video, his solo debut may appear to be all fun and games, but the 2AM member was serious about producing a top of the line electro-pop album, enlisting the help of electronic music producer and DJ Avicii as well as beating Kanye West to snag world-renowned mixing engineer Ken Lewis.

Oh, and he’s going to be sporting 20 cm heels on stage. He’s that crazy serious.

Jo Kwon says he’s “Da One,” but do you believe it?

JYP Entertainment surprised us earlier this week with the announcement that 2PM member Jang Wooyoung would be returning to the music scene as a solo artist, releasing a mysterious teaser on June 26.

Our guess is as good as yours as to what kind of new music Wooyoung will be bringing to the K-Pop world, but we’re definitely interested to see what he has up his sleeve when the record is released on July 8.

We may have been caught off guard, but Wooyoung looks armed (literally—check out the teaser to see what we mean) to take on the competition.

JYP may not be about picking favorites, but we sure are, so who will it be? Our favorite class clown Jo Kwon or the dark and mysterious Wooyoung? Cast your vote in our K-Pop section.
