4Minute

2009 hottest new girl group debutants 2NE1 and 4minute are going to be duking it out on MNET M! Countdown for the title of best new girl group on 18th June! These girls have caught the attention of Korea’s netizens and are already starting to be compared even though 4minute hasn’t even had their debut stage. 4minute will have to work hard to impress the crowd and make their presence known on stage, or they’ll fall into the shadow of 2NE1’s ever-growing popularity.

In a recent interview, 2NE1 revealed their plans for the future, how they feel about their sunbae’s Big Bang and why they have such a ridiculous interesting sense of style!

Even though lots of other girl groups tend to change up concepts and styles with each album, 2ne1 plans to stay true to one genre, claiming that they “will always be hip-hop” and “neutral”… whatever ‘neutral’ means. “We are very easy going,” they elaborated, “and we don’t act cute or pretend to be either. Our mini-album will be released in June and will have cute and sexy music added in there.”

While 1TYM’s Teddy produced 2NE1’s successful hit “Fire”, G-Dragon was a strong hand in the groups fashion concepts. G-dragon even lent some of his own accessories to Dara! Damn… they could not have asked a more unqualified person for fashion advice….

And how do they feel about their sunbae’s Big Bang, the group they were modeled after? “We still have a long way to go…. We never thought of ourselves as a group that will surpass Big Bang, but we want to be like them and always keep developing.”

Take out the lollipops and replace it with something spicy, YG Entertainment’s 2NE1 is going to debut with the Fire.

On YG Entertainment’s official website, YG posted a statement with information pertaining to 2NE1’s very first single. They stated that the single will be titled “Fire” and will be released for digital download on May 6th. The Music Video is scheduled to be released on the same day as well, with a re-cut 2nd version of the Music Video being released a few days after. A preview teaser will be released this Friday on May 1st.

In addition, their official debut performance is scheduled to be on May 17th’s SBS Inkigayo, 11 days after the release of the single. This single is just to get 2NE1’s feet wet, YG Entertainment plans to release a mini album with 10 songs some time in October. Fire is going to be written by Teddy of 1Tym and the choreography will be done by Shaun Evaristo and Aimee.

A lot of people fell in love with Lollipop, but they had their sunbae Big Bang support for that track (which really wasn’t even an official single). How will they fair alone with “Fire?” Or maybe Big Bang will join them once again to help them out, either way I’m pretty excited about “Fire.” They’ve had a lot of hype, let’s see if they can live up to it. Thanks to Talesy for the tip.
