The girl group to represent YG Entertainment, 2NE1 also come back to the fans with a new album in June. It has been a year since 2NE1 have promoted with ‘I Am the Best’ in June of last year.
On June 1st, a representative of YG Entertainment revealed, “About 7 songs have been completed with the producer in charge, Teddy. Currently we are thinking over the decision on the title song. Whether the album will be a full album or a mini album has not been decided on.”
YG Entertainment representative also added, “It’s still hard to comment on the hue of the album or the timing of comeback yet. We are planning to make an announcement next week”, but did not reveal additional details.
Although the exact timing of 2NE1′s comeback has not been confirmed, since it has been announced that 2NE1 will be releasing an album in June some time, it is expected that the promotions of the Wonder Girls and 2NE1 will overlap.
The Wonder Girls and 2NE1, as the girl groups representing the rival management companies JYP Entertainment and YG Entertainment are expected to draw the eyes and the ears of the fans this summer as their charms collide.

From lapsed ’90s metalheads to the glossiest girls of today’s generation, the best of the sublimely shiny sound that’s sweeping the world
Twenty years after its birth, Korean pop music has made its way from Seoul to Singapore to San Antonio to São Paulo and back again, “outbubbling” — as SPIN’s Chuck Eddy phrased it last year — its Western counterpart by tweaking and perfecting the formula on which both have long been based. It’s music that demands to be mainlined (hooks come sharper, choruses larger, visuals brighter), its gloss equaled only by the aggressiveness with which it’s been delivered to the international marketplace in recent years. By now, K-pop’s catalog of classics is deep enough to warrant a best-of list of its own, one we’ve assembled with our ears pointed to both past and present: The 21 Greatest K-Pop Songs of All Time, a singles wrecking crew whose final, odd-numbered tally is a loving tribute to one of the current moment’s most beloved girl groups, 2NE1.
21. SoolJ feat. Suh Ga Young – “Waiting 4 U” (2011)
20. Shinee – “Lucifer” (2010)
19. TVXQ – “Doshite Kimi o Suki ni Natte Shimattandaro” (2008)
18. Wonder Girls – “Be My Baby” (2011)
17. IU – “Boo” (2009)
16. T-Ara – “Roly Poly” (2011)
15. Super Junior – “Sorry Sorry” (2009)
14. Kara – “Step” (2011)
13. Big Bang – “Bad Boy” (2012)
12. f(x) – “Nu Abo” (2010)
11. Girls Generation – “Run Devil Run” (2010)
10. E.via – “Pick Up! U!” (2010)
9. 2NE1 – “Ugly” (2011)
Though “Ugly” scans like aggressive homage (or a rip, if you’d like) to TLC’s 1996 body-image breakdown “Unpretty,” its impact is more akin to the world-beating bubble-grunge of Kelly Clarkson’s “Since You’ve Been Gone.” Loud and brash, tender yet heroic, it encapsulates just about everything that’s so immediate about the 2NE1 crew. And on the strength of CL’s volcanic vocals, the four unleash here what’s arguably the most ferocious chorus in K-pop history.
8. Norazo – “Curry” (2010)
7. GD&TOP – “High High” (2010)
6. BoA – “Eat You Up” (2008)
5. SNSD – “Gee” (2009)
4. Seo Taiji & Boys – “Nan Arayo (I Know)” (1992)
3. 2NE1 – “I Am the Best” (2011)
“I Am the Best” might’ve been the best single released on the planet in 2011, even if not for its apocalyptic/futuristic video that kicks off on a catwalk and escalates into straightjackets, train-track break-dancing, ice cream cone rabbit-ear hats, and devil-horned hairstyles well before the aluminum bats and machine guns come out so 2NE1 can smash and shoot up the place. The stomping title hook sounds like “Neh-guh-ché Challa-GAH”; other big nonsense hook is the machine-gunned “bum-ratta-TATTA ta-tatta tah-tah.” Then there’s the froggie-reggae dancehall (“hot-hot-hot-hot FI-ya”) and Alice Cooper (“billion dollar baby”) references. Lyric plot: Hitting the city, taking no shit. World-class throat: CL.
2. HyunA – “Bubble Pop!” (2011)
1. H.O.T. – “Candy” (1996)
The Bridge #1 has been selected for the Final Round! ‘Be mine’ will be released @ Intel Korea Facebook on Jun 5th so please stay tuned!
