YG Entertainment’s female group 2NE1 makes their debut this month with the song Fire. Competition for Wonder Girls?
With JYP‘s Wonder Girls enjoying success in Korea and much of Asia and gaining momentum in the USA market, YG (creator of Big Bang) isn’t going to rest on his laurels and let everyone do the Tell Me dance! He has groomed and produced 2NE1 – pronounced “twenty one” . “NE” stands for “New Evolution” and “21” signifies the 21st century. So the name 2NE1 means 21st Century New Evolution.
YG’s marketing strategy? Let Big Bang introduce 2NE1…so they were featured in Big Bang’s Lollipop music video last month.
They have released two versions of the Fire music video. A street version and a space version. Check it and tell us which you prefer. Do you think they will dominate the Korean pop music scene?
