News: 2NE1’s Boyish Photo Shoot

1 04 2010

Part 1: 2NE1, the first boyish photoshoot – “Did you say we looked like boys?”


‘Even while wearing boyish clothing, can they still express themselves in a sexy and polished way?’

Representative girl groups from South Korea participated in the ‘2010 Big Project Girl Group Crossdressing Photoshoot”, a collaboration between Star News and fashion site Style M for the fashion magazine Arena’s May issue. The first to appear is 2NE1.

From the second that 2NE1 debuted, they were deemed the ‘Female Big Bang’ and proved to be completely different from current girl groups at that time. Whatever these girls wore became the trend and became a brand. For example, last year, CL’s unique glasses were a huge hit, as well as Sandara Park’s antenna hairstyle. In addition, Park Bom’s lovely style and Gong Minzy’s cute bob hair cut became a trend as well.

On the 29th, 2NE1 was at the studio located in Shinsadong in the southern part of Korea. Finally given a break from their fashion shows, CFs, photoshoots, and several other schedules, 2NE1 seemed much more relaxed. Their outer appearances seemed to have changed too.

CL sported a popstar-like reggae perm; instead of Sandara Park’s palm tree hair, she had a round twisting ‘snail’ hair style; Park Bom had a uniquely feminine and lovely perm; and instead of ‘Ero’ Minji’s short bob, it became a wavy upstyle.

“This photoshoot’s concept is tomboyish. 2NE1 is going to be wearing Read the rest of this entry »

News: BIG BANG’s Coming BACK

30 03 2010

Though not much information has been out yet, there’s one definite fact: Big Bang is making a comeback in Korea this summer!

I know this is exciting for a lot of you since they’ve been gone from the Korean music scene for nearly two years. They are known for being one of the most popular boy groups of Korea and they are finally coming back home to their fans in Korea.

YG Entertainment announced on the 30th, “Last year, Big Bang was really successful in Japan. Now, they’re coming back to Korea this summer after a two year absence.”

Has it really been two years? That’s pretty long. But when I think about it, the last time I saw them in Korea was when they were promoting Sunset Glow back in 2008. Do you think they will measure up to the fans’ expectations?

News: G-Dragon Upset on Concert Issue

26 01 2010

GDragon had many labels in the past, some good and some bad: Big Bang’s leader. The youngest boy who was participating in HipHop albums by the age of 13. One of the top 8 composers that shone in 2008. Placing first in all possible music charts with his solo album. 2009’s greatest selling record. Plagiarism issues. Known for interesting fashion. And the most recent one, concert issues.

There had been a set of associated words with G-Dragon. However, he was the boy that went on along his way without any rest in the music world, but there will always be the critics commenting on his actions. Through an interview, we learned about Read the rest of this entry »





Fashion & Style: 2NE1 Inspired

23 01 2010

YG Entertainment seems to have a knack for banging out bands with not only great sound but great style (cough, Big Bang, cough). Their latest “female” BB, 2NE1, has a funky, unique style that’s sweeping over Asia.

Their Lollipop look is extremely colorful. We can see lots of bright prints and checks. It’s very fresh. However, this style has a limited age range (approximately from 13-20, give or take a few years). CL (second from left) has donned a very shiny assemble, Minzy (first left) has stuck with a pair of tight jeans and a printed shirt (tied up in the corner), while Sandara Read the rest of this entry »
