4minute members Jeon Ji Yoon and Heo Ga Yoon traveled to Thailand as 2Yoon and became the first girl group unit to promote in the country.
The unit attended music and variety show shoots, awards ceremonies and photo shoots for local magazines during its stay in Thailand since March 21.
The press conference held for the unit in Bangkok on March 21 especially drew over 170 media outlets and officials, and took place in an outdoor setting decorated in the country style specific to 2Yoon.
Local outlets showed great interest in 2Yoon′s music, and spilled over with questions on its future promotions as both 2Yoon and 4minute.
The two girls then appeared at the 2013 Nine Entertain Awards on the same day and walked its Purple Carpet. They sported couple dresses with flashy print on a classic design.
Two days later, on March 23, 2Yoon appeared before fans on the Channel 7 Live Music Show, a show that has been running for 25 years. The show previously played host to such giant figures as Ricky Martin and the Scorpions, and the episode was designed as a special for 2Yoon.
