“2NE1 has established themselves at the forefront of K-pop girl groups, and we’re hugely excited to be bringing
them to Malaysia for their first-ever concert here. It’s going to be a sensational feast for the senses, and fans
will be treated to an awesome night of visually-stunning performances. We hope that by bringing in big acts
such as 2NE1, the music scene in Asia will continue to be elevated to greater heights.” Says Beatrice Chia Richmond, Creative Director of Running Into The Sun.

2NE1 Global Tour 2012- New Evolution kicked off in Seoul on 28 and 29 July at the Seoul Olympic stadium to an audience of 20,000 fans, and will be brought to 10 cities in 7 countries throughout Asia, the Americas, and Europe.

[NEWS] 2NE1 perform with the genius guitar player Jung Sung Ha


2NE1 recently performed with the genius young guitar player Jung Sung Ha.

On August 1, 2NE1 released a video of their acoustic performance with Jung on YG Entertainment’s official blog, YG Life. 2NE1 sang songs live to Jung’s guitar playing.

Jung, who has fascinated the whole world with his guitar playing, is a genius young guitar player currently in the spotlight. Ono Yoko, a wife of John Lennon of The Beatles highly praised his talent at playing the guitar and the world-famous rock group Mr. Big once suggested performing with them. As a big fan of Big Bang and 2NE1, Jung got an opportunity to perform with 2NE1 this time.

In the video, Jung plays 2NE1′s “I Love You” and “Lonely” in his own distinctive style and 2NE1 members sing the songs live to the acoustic sound. CL especially shows off her talent at both rapping and singing.

This performance is a special gift for 2NE1′s fans before the group’s world tour. 2NE1 started the first concert of their tour, titled New Evolution, at the Gymnastics Arena in Olympic Park on July 28 and 29.

In order to focus on the tour, 2NE1 postponed their plan for releasing a new single. They were originally planning to release a new single on July 28, which was three weeks after they released “I Love You” on July 5. However, they changed the plan and decided to release a new album in October instead.

After the concert in Seoul, 2NE1 will continue their tour in New Jersey (August 17), LA (August 24), Osaka (from August 31 to September 2), Nagoya (from September 7 to 8), Yokohama (from September 11 to 12), and Saitama (from September 28 to 29). More cities will be added later on.

Jung Sung Ha is a big star on YouTube, the first Korean user who received over a hundred million hits. He also became famous all around the world after holding a concert tour of ten countries when he was only thirteen years old. His playing style is so distinctive that almost no one can play like him.
