4Minute is one of the Korean girl groups who, even though have disbanded their kinds of music is always good to listen to. The group fronted by HyunA has released a song called Cold Rain on their album.

Moreover, the story carried in on Cold Rain is a story of betrayal and pain due to being lied to by their love one. The song that shows how hate and love become one is delivered perfectly by 4Minute.
