For those of you who haven’t heard of them, 2NE1 is a South Korean group that debuted in 2009 with a number of singles and released their first album in 2010. Their songs have consistently hit the top of various music charts and they’ve received Mutizen, Cyworld and Asia Song Festival awards.
Although their name is “2NE1” it’s not pronounced “To anyone”. According to the group’s members it means “New Evolution of the 21st Century”. Their music style ranges from pop to hip-hip to reggae to electronic dance, so there’s something for everyone.
