2NE1 Debuts @ SBS Inkigayo

After 2 MVs, 2NE1 finally debuted at the SBS Inkigayo performing the carrier single entitle Fire from their 1st mini album.  The song has Indian music influence in it and sounded so hip.

They really reminds me of Big Bang. The intro and the style.  I like it this way that they don’t look like the usual girl band who projects overly cute image.  The reception of the audience is so warm.

2NE1 축하해요! 화이팅!

2NE1 is on Fire

After the hit CF single Lollipop by the YG girl group 2NE1,  they are finally going out with their first mini-album with carrier single Fire.  They created two versions of official MV the street version which looks like truly a girl Big Bang:

and the space version which is a bit sexier than the first which reminds me of the DISCO MV set up of Uhm Jung-ah, their nuna in YG:

I am not a fan of girl bands in Korea because they are exaggerated in their cuteness to some extent but 2NE1 makes a difference.   They do look crazy like Big Bang but at least they don’t have the crap songs like the other girl groups out there.

They resemble their Big Bang counterpart except that they are just 4.  CL their leader looks more of Taeyang to me than GD though her fashion sense seems to take on GD.  Sandara Park looks like Top minus the deep voice of the rapper.  Minji to me looks like GD but she is more associated with Seungri since she is the dongsaeng (youngest) of the group.   Bom I guess is Taeyang as well with the voice and sexiness. 

They will soon perform live at the SBS Inkigayo on May 17.  Got to watch out for that.

2NE1 is Here!

The formation of a girl version of the hit boy group Big Bang has caused so many rumors and anticipation not just in Korea but to almost all hallyu fans out there.  I have seen so many girl group in Korea but still anticipated how the girl Bang Bang will look like.

They have officially released last April 3 with their single Lollipop.  The album of this girl group from YG has been produced entirely by Big ang Leader GDragon.  It’s no wonder that the group is providing their support to 2NE1 by not just creating the songs for them but being in the video as well. 

It was a bubble gum song but knowing the image that Big Bang has… I am expecting for some transformation from the group every now and then.  I suppose they will not be the conventional cuties and sexies like Girl Generation, Wonder Girls or Kara.   I am looking forward a live performance from 2NE1.
