2NE1 had their official debut in Japan in September of last year where they had a concert tour in 3 cities of Japan (Yokohama, Kobe, Chiba). They gathered a total of 70000 attendees which recorded the highest number of attendees by a Korean artist for a Japan debut live concert.
With such interest from Japan, 2NE1 plan to attack the islands of Japan in February once more with new promotions.
