As One – Jingle Bell Rock

Singing duo As One got their start in the US, but their national fame is in Korea. Chae Da-hee and Lee Min-young, better known as Crystal (short hair) and Min (long hair), are both natives of the Los Angeles area (Crystal being born there and Min moving there as an infant), and were discovered there by a Korean artist who got them signed with a record label in Korea, where they recorded and released their debut album Day By Day in 1999.

They’ve been going strong as a duo ever since and, as someone who’s had the pleasure of meeting them both, I can say they’re just as charming and as close as they appear to be in the above 2006 video for their version of “Jingle Bell Rock.” The ladies currently host their own radio show, K-Popular on TBS eFM radio. Happy Holidays!

Yours truly with As One in 2001
