I think the Japanese version is AWFUL. I was drowning in second hand embarrassment, to be honest. When CL went "ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRbody" it was just... ergh.

Yeah, some of the English was incomprehensible. And that part with CL was pretty awful. Surprising, coming from CL.

On the other hand, I like that they still kept the Korean song title. That would've been awkward if they changed it to anything else.

p.s.: 2NE1 TV Season 3 ep 1:

IT IS LIKE CHRISTMAS ON A MONTH IN WHICH IT IS USUALLY NOT CHRISTMAS.


I wanted to watch this, but as the top rated comment on yt says "THAT TV STATIC IS SO FCUKING ANNOYING OMG I'M GETTING MAD".

That Dara is such a dork haha, I love her.

EDIT:
Now I know where Sasha Baron Cohen had the inspiration for Bruno... (second part, starting around 5:00)

Watching a few episodes of 2NE1 TV really gives an interesting "inside" view of the group.
And it makes me dislike their songs and music videos even more. The characters they portray in them are hugely different from what the girls actually are and act like.

I never liked any of their songs anyway...
However, 2NE1 TV made me really like Dara and Pom (and I can't believe they're "that old" [as in 'older than me'] already). CL seems like a bitch though.

Okay, let's stop talking about personalities because that mini album is out and GOD DAMN. I SAID. I SAID, GOD DAMN. WHAT A FUCKING AMAZING ALBUM. I NEED TO BUY THE CD VERSION NOW BECAUSE I SAID, GOD DAMN. IT BLOWS MY EARS UP! Not a single clunker on that mini and I was upset when it was over. Give me a full album as tight as a mosquito's ass like this one and I will be in heaven. Wait, I would be in hell because I said, god damn, but whatever it'll be heaven so long as that album is with me!

GO GET IT AND LET YOUR EARS REJOICE TO THE MUSICAL GODDESSES OF 2NE1!

Ditto. It won't make a difference, but I like having the tangible CD version of albums I really like instead of a digital-only version.

Does anyone have any experience ordering directly from YGE Shop? They have a guide for foreigners but it doesn't match the actual process anymore.

Of course; strong, serious and hip young women.
But when you see them in 2NE1 TV they seem very playful and kinda dorky at times.

That might be just a character as well. With the camera off, they could be none of these things. Who knows? :alien: :unsure:

True, but it seems more like that this is (closer to) their real character than a heavily stylized 3 minutes video.

2NE1 - I Am The Best (PV)!! That's right, PV instead of MV. (Read: It's a Japanese version!) :weeeh:

Still kicks ass, but I still prefer the Korean version of the song. I don't know how much of that is the bias of having heard the Korean version first, but we'll see.

I don't think it's very much bias.
Generally, it just doesn't flow as well if lyrics are forced into fitting a pattern that was intended for another language. Proof of this is the fact that they HAD TO keep the 내가 제일 잘나가 chorus. Watashi wa saikou desu or any variation would just kill the song. :lol:

If the song was originally written to be a Japanese song, I imagine that it wouldn't have turned out this way. Also, when I listen to the new lines, I don't even realize that they're in Japanese. :hahaha:

The 2nd English rap only works because it's hilarious, I expected them to keep the one English part from the original, but in my head it only turned out as...

It's 2 in the mornin' ERRR~BODY getting freaky,
something something something billion dollar tiki?

Kind of odd that they made it English, but didn't even bother to rhyme.

I didn't expect to like UGLY at first listen, but when the drums kicked in, it was cool. Not as crazy about the chorus, it seems like there was less effort.

2ne1 went onto Inkigayo with Hate You and Ugly. So apparently they were in charge of doing whatever is they do for the performances since both songs didn't have any set routine.

I always heard "Hey Jew" instead of "Hate you". :whatthe:
Dara's hat in Ugly is extreme.

I found a blog that is centered around pictures of Park Bom's eyes:

But sometimes you can't see their eyes clearly, because they got a shitload of hair in front of their face.

It's actually pretty easy once you know what to look for: Minzy's the one with the badonkadonk.

Or, you know, their faces are completely different. Minzy's face was very distinct to me from the start. Actually, I didn't have much of a problem telling 2NE1 apart to begin with... there were only 4 of them and most of them had some pretty clear identifying features. It was just a matter of learning their names.

CL has some lower body on her too, though. In the good way.

Yeah, I don't see how you could confuse the 4 girls. They usually also have different hair colors, which makes it much easier.

I finally got around to watching the 2NE1 TV S3_01. I get a lot of "zuh?" moments watching this. Like how do you go visit a friend with a camera crew in tow? And what's going on between CL and Jeremy Scott? :eekrun:

The worst thing was still following Bom to her aunt's grave in Season 2. Ugh.

Jeremy Scott is CL's stereotypical gay bestie, basically, except it's a little uncomfortable because he is Jeremy Scott.

At 1:19 Minzy is like "why is she talking about me !?". hah

I would have liked to see Dara and Park Bom talk some more too. It seemed like they wanted to imho.

I have not been able to dissmiss the mini from my playlist since it came out. And I am not able to remove any songs. At this rate it'll end up being my album of the year.

If anyone hasn't seen them yet, they have GREAT making-ofs for Ugly and Hate You in episodes 4 and 5 of 2NE1 TV season 3. They show not just the behind-the-scenes for the PVs (which are interesting in and of themselves), but Teddy also talks about both songs and gives a little songwriting history. For example, "Hate You" was originally titled "Fuck You", and Teddy plays a version where they sing just that. :lol: it's just one word, but "Fuck" is more fitting.

Aside: I wonder why they split the Korean and English versions of the episodes.
