World-class hip-hop group Far East Movement’s fourth studio album, “Dirty Bass” was released on June 12. In the group’s latest album was a remix version of “Live My Life” which featured the Korean rappers and married couple Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae.

The reaction of overseas fans to the song was even more amazing. Fans comments poured in praise for the song on iTunes saying, “Yoon Mi Rae’s rap was really amazing,” “Cool,” and “This version is the best!”

Far East Movement took to their official Twitter to show their gratitude for the couple on their participation in the remix, “Huge thank you to Yoon Mi Rae ‘n Tiger JK on the ‘Live My Life’ reeemix!”

Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae’s relationship with Far East Movement is expected to continue. A Jungle Entertainment official had this to say, “Another song featuring or a joint performance in the future is very likely.”

Lately, the trend for many Korean artists and groups is to collaborate with the most popular musicians around the globe, especially with other artist in the United States. They see it as a way to gain exposure and increase awareness of Korean performers and music on an international level. It also is beneficial to the world artists as they too are able to gain a larger audience and broaden their musical influences from the collaboration.

In September of last year, Yoon Mi Rae had the honor of being chosen as one of “The 12 Best New Female Emcees Dominating Mics Everywhere” by MTV Iggy in the US. Not long ago, Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae attended the “K-Pop Night Out” showcase in Singapore where they were praised as being the Korean Jay-Z and BeyoncĂ©.

Yoon Mi Rae doesn’t mind husband Tiger JK’s large female fan base

Hip-hop legends such as Tiger JK, Yoon Mi Rae, Bizzy, Dynamic Duo and more featured as guest stars on the special hip hop edition of Mnet‘s ‘vol. TEN‘.

It was here that the emcees pointed out that hip-hop king Tiger JK had an unusually large fan base made up of females, and his wife Yoon Mi Rae remarked, “I like that he has a lot of female fans.”

However she added there was one occasion when she was less than pleased. “We once had a joint concert in Hongdae. I knew that he had many female fans, but I got mad when I saw a sign that read, ‘Oppa you’re hot. Call me.’”

Tiger JK then adorably displayed his need for more attention from his wife stating, “I got frustrated at Yoon Mi Rae’s response. My fans always do that, but it was like she never paid any attention before.”
