A team who has the record of the highest-ever ranking (61st) on Billboard 200, American Billboard’s main albums chart, for any Korean singer, whether it is team or solo, man or woman. A team who has an impressive melody line which even people in their 30s and 40s can easily sing along, which is not a usual case among Korea’s girl groups. A team who can best-express both ballad and dance music. A team who proved that a girl group can be successful for the quality of their music and performance, not just for their good look. A team who has numerous hits such as “FIRE”, “I DON’T CARE”, “I’M THE BEST”, “GO AWAY”, “LONELY”, “UGLY”, “CAN’T NOBODY”, “IN THE CLUB”, “I LOVE YOU”, “CLAP YOUR HANDS”, “HATE YOU”, “GOTTA BE YOU”, “MTBD”, “IF I WERE YOU”, and “COME BACK HOME”. These are words that describe 2NE1, a girl group of four members: CL, DARA, BOM, and MINZY.
[Ilgan Sports] YG Entertainment released a teaser image where ’21’ stands out.
On the 9th at 9AM, YG Entertainment released a teaser image hinting the next comeback on their official blog.
In the image, there’s the phrase “WHO’S NEXT?’ and has the date and time, ‘11.21’ and 21:00′, written on it. As the date and time both have the number 21, there is a good chance that it’s hinting 2NE1’s comeback.
If 2NE1’s comeback is on November 21st, it mean they’re having comeback in 1 year and 9 months after the song ‘Come Back Home’ that they released in February last year.
K-pop encompasses anything and everything under the umbrella of pop music in South Korea written between the late 1990s and today. Boy bands and girl groups, known colloquially as idols, making upbeat dance songs represent the current trend, but hip-hop, folk music, power ballads, EDM, and more can also fall into the K-pop genre. But chances are K-pop appears overwhelming to non-fans, particularly those outside of South Korea and who shun anything that falls remotely in the pop genre.
