YG Entertainment's 2nd girls group, who have been receiving many hypes even before their group's name have been decide. They've been dubbed as the 'Female Big Bang' since they belong to the same company as one of the most successful boy group in Korean Entertainment, Big Bang.
Their official name is 2NE1. The meaning to the name is that the group will produce music that is fresh like the age of 21. And like the number ‘21′ in a game of blackjack, it meant to never lose. "21" consist of 4 members Park Bom, Sandara Park, Minji, and CL, whom is the leader of "21". Park Bom who has been featured in Big Bang’s songs before, Sandara Park who already made a name for herself as an actress in Philippine, MinJi who is the granddaughter of a famous Korean traditional dancer, and last but definitely NOT least, CL, who is known to have amazing rapping skills and able to speak in 4 languages, some even call her as the ‘Female GD’ after hearing her rap in some of YG family collab songs.
Even before their debut, they already manage to snatch a cell phone CF (commercial film) deal from LG CYON, co-endorse with Big Bang in CYON’s newest phone line, ‘LOLLIPOP’, normally in the Korean entertainment industry, only top stars are able to get a cell phone CF deal.
This is definitely a group to look out for in the year 2009.
