The Korean-Chinese-Japanese “idol” group Cross Gene has released a special-edition album with a world-renowned brand, Swarovski Elements.
On June 11, the group began sales of its debut mini-album, Timeless-Begins, and on the 18th, the so called “luxury package” hit the market. As a multicultural “idol,” Cross Gene has shown great potential in the industry.
The limited edition was especially designed by 115-year-old crystal brand Swarovski Elements asn a wish for a successful launch of the group. In Korea, the album will be sold as a limited edition.
This special album has a cover made of a silver material, which differentiates it from the previous issues with their black cover. Also, six Swarovski Elements crystals are engraved above the Cross Gene logo, which depicts a gene, adding more meaning to it.
Each crystal, in the design, in the shape of a shining star, represents one of the members: Shin, Takuya, Casper, Sangmin, J.G,, and Yongseok. Because it is special in various ways, music fans recognize its high quality and find it worth keeping.
The boys became center of attention as soon as they debuted, and their collaborative work with a famous world-class brand gives another glimpse at the group’s distinctive advancement in the industry. People are becoming more curious about their future activities.
The group is currently busy giving performances of the title track, “La-Di Da-Di,” and is considered the greatest rising star of the latter half of the year 2012.
