2NE1 Wins Mutizen

Their songs are really catchy. And just yesterday, they won the Mutizen Award in SBS Inkigayo as their song Fire became number one surpassing Super Junior's It's You, Shinee's Juliette, and many other hit songs. Here is a clip of the announcement of the No. 1 song in Inkigayo yesterday.

They just debuted this year under YG Entertainment. Their first song was Lollipop with their sunbaes Big Bang. 2NE1 is composed of Park Bom, CL, Sandara, and Minzy.

Park Bom, CL, Minzi, Dara

You guys may have heard of Park Bom as the girl who sang the chorus of Big Bang's song entitled We Belong Together. She's the main vocalist of 2NE1. CL (real name Lee Chaerin) is the leader of the group and plays the role of main rapper and vocalist. She is my favorite member along with Minzy (real name Gong Minji) who is only as old as my sister(born in 1994, yes, she's just 15!) but is a power dancer. And of course, the Pambansang Krung Krung ng Pilipinas, Sandara Park is also part of the group as vocalist.

Some interesting facts :
  • GDragon and his friends are 2NE1's stylists
  • Sandara Park is a runner-up of a talent search here in the Philippines called Star Circle Quest. She had numerous TV shows after that and the Filipinos just loved her Krung Krung image and her Mahal Ko Kayo wave. [then her popularity subsided.. dunno what happened.. i just heard from the news that she's training in Korea and then..]
  • She appeared in the music video of Mianhaeyo( I'm Sorry) sung by Gummy feat. TOP of Big Bang. ( this video is a must-watch)
  • The group's name at first was 21 but later they changed it to 2NE1.
  • The group is labeled as the Female Big Bang.

Here's the MV of Lollipop :

MV of Fire (Street Version) :

Though I'm not really a big fan of Sandara even when she was here in the Philippines, I'm just amazed of how the Filipinos support her. She has really been a part of the Philippine Showbiz and still remains in the hearts of her Filipino fans. I can see that many Filipinos are proud of her. As for me, I'm glad that she has really improved in terms of dancing and singing( i think she has the weakest vocals in the group). But she has the most beautiful face on a side note. My faves, Minzy and CL, are definitely multi-talented. I love them both. Good luck to the group and congrats on their Mutizen. But.. hmmm.. i hope Super Junior will bag the Mutizen next time. hehehehe! ELF po kasi ako..
