Biography

South Korea (2009 – present)

2NE1 (Korean: 투애니원; pronounced “to anyone” or “twenty-one”), formerly known as 21, is a South Korean group under YG Entertainment Inc. in 2009. Previously promoted as “female Big Bang” and 21, YG officially stopped using the name 21 because another Korean musical group was using the same name. 2NE1 is supposed to stand for “New Evolution of the 21st Century”: “NE” meaning “New Evolution” and “21” standing for the “21st Century.”

2NE1 has released a promotional song featuring the group Big Bang called Lollipop. The song was released as a promotional song for the CYON cellular phone Lollipop. Although it was not a promoted single (as it was an advertisement song, there were problems with network chart eligibility), “Lollipop” proved to be a strong chart hit, going to #1 on various online charts and topping music television network M.Net’s online chart for four weeks in a row. However, despite this, the group did not officially debut until May. On May 6th, they released their debut digital single, Fire . The group released 2 music videos for the single, one known as the “space version” and the other known as the “street version. They then released a self-titled mini-album and promoted their hit “I Don’t Care” followed by “Pretty Boy.” Both songs received much success.

In August 2010, YG Entertainment founder, Yang Hyun Suk, announced that 2NE1 will promote three title tracks for their first full length album, To Anyone. In addition, three music videos would be produced, filmed, and released for the tracks. The album would be released on September 9, 2010.

    v with Crush making it to the #61 in the Billboard sales chart and thus being the best-selling kpop album in the US in history, I hope YG realises they have a huge potential, both in Korea and abroad. CL's solo album would be awesome too xx [2] YG needs to get it together with 2ne1. They're flawless and they have so much potential.

    v I didn't mean "their" as "2NE1's" but as "YG's" ... they obviously don't care about Japan, it feels like they're doing it for money (again, THEY as YG) ... I was really surprised this japanese album debuted at number 2, they did not deserve it, period. I know they're famous (2NE1) and shit but it's just not fair and they (YG) should at least try and make some proper japanese songs for them if they want 2NE1 to be at least a little bit relevant in Japan. but if japanese people like recycled songs, they good for them, I guess

    "I feel like they hate all 5 of their japanese fans " lol not 5 ~ "2NE1 attracted 17,000 fan in Japan with 21 songs, 2 hours at AON Japan concert in Yokohama " Not their fault YG doesn't give 'em original Japanese songs. That doesn't mean they hate their fans lol ~ ur logic

    I like the japanese tracklist for Crush. I miss "Do You Love Me" and "I Love You" on the original tracklist. The japanese one looks like the right tracklist with all the singles added.

    Don't know why you would bother listening to the Japanese versions tho [6] lemme just say.. what the fuck. they are so irrelevant in Japan and they aren't even trying with their japanese music. I mean, look at other groups, most (if not all) of them have original japanese songs and only some translated from korean, but not 2NE1, they have to recycle everything.. how is that even fair? it makes me mad because I feel like they hate all 5 of their japanese fans
