Ever since 2NE1 first debuted with its single ‘Fire’ in 2009, it has garnered huge success throughout Asia, firmly establishing its dominance on the K-pop music industry and is quickly breaking the barriers into the global market.

Formed by YG Entertainment, one of the largest artist management agencies in Korea, the group has become a style icon and inspiration for world-renowned designers such as Jeremy Scott and its unique and edgier style of music has attracted the attention of fans from all over the world, even from more prominent figures such as Will.I.Am of Black Eyed Peas.

The group consists of 4 talented girls with unique characteristics, CL, Minzy, Dara, and Bom. The name 2NE1 combines the phrases “21st century” and “new evolution”, and is pronounced “twenty-one” or “to anyone”.

Their debut EP album containing such mega-hit singles as ‘Fire’ and ‘I Don’t Care’ won them awards from various Award shows – including Mnet Asian Music Awards, and made them as the best selling artist in 2009.

In 2010, 2NE1 released their first studio and full length album To Anyone, which contains 12 tracks including ‘Clap Your Hands’ and ‘Can’t Nobody’.  The album hit #1 on the iTune’s Hip-hop chart, #7 on Billboard World Albums charts, #1 on HMV Japan, and on top of various charts in Korea.  Their follow-up singles, such as ‘Lonely’, ‘I Am the Best’, and ‘Ugly’ topped all major Korean charts and Japanese Oricon Chart as well and eventually won them the MTV IGGY BEST NEW BAND AWARD 2011.

YouTube channel views that surpass 300 million, Facebook Likes that near 3 million, and topping the music charts of countries other than South Korea’s are only a few of the group’s many achievements accomplished so far.  2NE1 will begin proving this global fame and talent by performing in front of thousands of U.S. fans.

    Hi Admins! Looking at the comment section we can conclude that there are a lot of people here who wants to attend the concert but does not have any travel buddies. I assume that there is someone from OhDara/WeLoveDara who would be attending too. Right? If there is/are then how about organizing something like a meet up with fellow Daralings? Just a suggestion. Thanks!

    • Evil YG really dont care about us(2ne1fans), he just need money ASAP!!!i think YG want to destroy 2ne1…for sure YG(aka illuminati company) will burn in hell!!!!!
      i really hate that style!!!!99% people in the world love normal style (like beyonce style/taylor swift style, etc). 2ne1+ Jeremy scot style= epic fail aka drag queen(always look cheap, look awful) Dammitt why?!!!! T_T 2ne1 style on debut days is still better than this!!! T.T
      For anyone that says this style look good on 2ne1, their are a liar/haters!!!
