[INFO] 2NE1 member Minzy’s grandmother passes away

 

It has been reported that 2NE1 Minzy‘s grandmother, Madam Gong Ok Jin, passed away at the age of 81 on the early morning of July 9th.

A representative of YG Entertainment stated, “Minzy is shocked upon hearing the unfortunate news of her grandmother. She has currently left for Youngkwang to attend the wake with her family. We will arrange her schedule depending on the situation.”

After suffering from a sudden stroke in 1998, Gong Ok Jin has since been fighting against the aftermath and old age.

Gong Ok Jin was widely known for her traditional singing and Korean dance, especially for inventing the ‘lame dance’ and the ‘animal imitation dance’.

Her grandmother’s wake will be held at the funeral hall located in Youngkwang in Jeonnam Province.

Our thoughts go out to Minzy and her family. May her grandmother rest in peace.

[INFO] 2NE1′s ‘lipstick art’ for New Evolution promo pictures becomes a hot topic

 

2NE1’s shock factor generally lies around the territory of clothes and hairstyles. This time, however, the girls decided play around with their make up as they pose for promotional posters for “New Evolution,” the girls’ upcoming world tour.

The posters see the four ladies posing fiercely, flaunting their individual look. Netizens took notice of the girls’ lips, as each member has on a rather interesting choice of color and design. Members CL and Dara both have on animal print patterns, while Minzy and Bom have on a solid, pearly shade of purple and light pink respectively.  All four ladies are wearing temporary lip tattoos by Violent Lips, which has become all the rage this summer.

It’s so unique, I think it’s a look only 2NE1 can pull of,” comments one netizen, “It looks kind of creepy, but I like it!

Meanwhile, the girls are working diligently to promote their latest digital single “I Love You” as well as preparing for their world tour, expected to kick off on July 28th in Seoul. Note, the sudden passing of Minzy’s grandmother may alter their promotions.
