It may be read as “to anyone” or “twenty-one,” but right now, I’m referring to a famous band in South Korea, 2ne1, which stands for “New Evolution of the 21st Century”. The “NE” stands for New Evolution and the “21” as 21st century.
The name itself makes people crazy, what more when you hear their music. 2ne1 plays K-pop, Hip-hop, R&B, Electro Pop, and Dance Pop music.
The female band first appeared in a LG Cyon cell phone commercial with their first hit song Lollipop. From then on, the song became a #1 hit on various music charts online and it topped some music TV networks though it was just for the commercial campaign and the band didn’t officially launched their album yet.
Meet 2ne1 members
2ne1 band has four lovely-lady-members namely,
CL (Leader, Rapper, Vocalist) Real name: Lee Chae Rin/Chae Lee/Faith Lee
Bom (Lead Vocalist) Real name: Park Bom
Dara (Vocalist) Real name: Sandara Park
Minzy (Vocalist, Main rapper, Lead Dancer) Real name: Gong Min-ji
Currently, 2ne1 member, Dara, is making a big wave outside the music scene. She had a Cass beer commercial where she has been kissed by the famous Korean lead actor from Boys Over Flowers, Lee Min Ho also known as Jun Pyo from the said Korean TV series. The two are considered one of the hottest stars in Korea today.
And oh,,,Sandara Park a.k.a. Dara started her acting career from the Philippines. But she came back to South Korea to have a big break. She joined the other three girls in 2ne1 in YG Entertainment to train for 4 years until they're all ready to be launched as 2ne1.
Back to 2ne1, my faves are the two Parks...Sandara Park and Park Bom. I love their version of "We Belong Together" popularized by Big Bang and GDragon...Watch and hear Big Bang with Park Bom performed "We Belong Together" below...I've also put a link to "We Belong Together" English lyrics.
