Earlier today, 2NE1 recently performed at the Korea-China Song Festival in Qingdao, China along with fellow idols such as f(x), Super Junior-M, and SS501. 2NE1′sSandara Park (aka Dara) recently revealed a comical story through me2day.
On the 6th, Dara posted happy pictures of 2NE1 preparing to leave to Qingdao China for the Korea-China Song Festival.
~ Please backtrack for the me2day.
Unfortunately, 2NE1 doesn’t seem to be as popular in China as in Korea… or maybe it’s just that Bom is too hot? Well anyways, don’t worry Dara, if I were there, I would’ve been roaring for you.
End of year concert hall coronations and discussion of details… new album releases next month
Girl group 2NE1(picture) will hold a large-scale concert at the end of the year.
The 2NE1 concert is very significant in various ways. The only female groups that have held their own concerts is Finkl(1998,1999) and S.E.S(2000), Wonder Girls(2008), only these three groups. And for a new group whose debut hasn’t even passed a year to hold a solo concert at such a huge performance hall is impossible without a number of hit songs and a huge popularity.
There have been a lot of female idol groups out, and especially this year it has expanded so much to the point where it was called a ‘fountain of girl groups.’ But the reason they were not able to hold concerts is because compared to the male groups, there wasn’t as much enthusiastic participation from fans. So, for concert management companies, it wasn’t easy to invest in female group concerts.
But 2NE1 has had an uncommonly great deal of attention since before their debut, and this put them at a different position from all the other girl groups. Even before 2NE1’s debut, they had gone up the music charts with the LG Cyon commercial theme song ‘Lollipop’ in March. In May, they debuted with ‘Fire’ and gained so much popularity that they won first place in a mainstream music program in just one month.
In July, after the release of their mini-album, ‘I Don’t Care,’ as well as ‘In the Club’ ‘Let’s Go Party’ ‘Pretty Boy’ etc. has gained equal popularity and went up in high ranks in the music charts. They not only just catch the eye of the viewer with their dance or fashion, or feminine charm, but they also win with their music and made huge progression.
After they ended their mini-album activities in mid-September, 2NE1 is planning on releasing another album around November, so they will probably have enough hit songs to fill up the 2 hour performance of the concert. YG Entertainment says, “ 2NE1 has showed a will for a concert since their debut, and since their first mini-album has had an amount of success, reason to agree for a concert was sufficient.”

The PD to the show said, “It is hard to get 2NE1 to appear on the show, and Sandara Park’s appearance has especially shone throughout the show. She was really good at talking, above what we have expected. And also Gong MinJi showed that it is the end of dance competition amongst girlgroups with her dance on the show.”

WOOOTT WOOOTT** goood news right rightt? yayyy!.
BTW, theres a video from YOUTUBE, but i’m in school right now and its blocked. WAHHH, sorrrieee <3
note: other parts omitted
Many celebrities around the world look fresh and young, regardless of their age. It almost seems like time doesn’t affect their appearances! Perhaps an overload of botox, a touch of professional make-up artists, or maybe a little surgical procedure? The world may never know…
Take a look at some of pair-ups of stars that are surprisingly same-aged, yet they don’t look like it at all!
Probably not so much of an “idol” anymore, Seo In Young of Jewelry has recently celebrated her 7th year post debut with the release of a new album, Vari2ty. She had also gained a nickname of a “witch,” after revealing her wickedly charming appearance on variety show MBC We Got Married. Although she has a rich history as a celebrity, she is actually pretty young at age 25. Now, let’s get to Dara of idol girl group 2NE1. With 2NE1 refreshing sense of music and fashion, it is easy to assume Dara an adolescent girl. As we often see her act like a little kid on camera, Dara’s actual age is almost too shocking to be true! Born in 1984, she shares the quarter-century mark with Seo In Young.
