2NE1 arrives in the Philippines! They are back!

OMG!
They are here! They arrived in short notice. Lols.They arrived noontime on February 1, 2012. Blackjacks must’ve had a 24/7 lookout on 2NE1 updates. A few pinoy blackjacks made it to the airport for 2NE1’s arrival.

Nobody knew why 2ne1 is here in the Philippines and some said that they’re here for vacation since it’s still winter in Korea. But in my POV, vacation?!, nah, I don’t think so. If they’re having a break due to winter, they would’ve gone separate ways. Bom would go the states and visit some relatives and Dara would probably visit Philippines. I’m a blackjack but not as updated as before when I’m still running the Gallery. I’ve seen pictures of 2ne1 together in New York. I think they’re discreetly working on a project and I wonder what it is.

Sharing you a few shots of 2NE1 in Manila today, February 1, 2012.

KPOP featured on Rated K – May 29,2011 [eng sub]

Hello Kpop Lovers!

I don’t get to watch Rated K on Sundays because it’s a family day and we’re usually out in the evening. Luckily, we didn’t go out that night so I was able to watch the show and I was gladly surprised that they’re featuring South Korea, it’s places, food,high-technology and artists. When they featured Kpop, I feel like belong to that country because I can totally relate in everything they say, all the Kpop group and events shown. I’d like to share this to everyone of you (not just Filipino kpop fans). There’s no site providing downloadables on local shows so I’m gonna translate everything Korina (host) said by seconds on the video. I’m gonna try my best so I hope you all like it ^_^

Rated K. A Magazine show broadcasted on ABS-CBN every Sunday. Features human interest stories and no-holds barred interviews with interesting personalities. Korina Sanchez once again showcases her specialty in news gathering and presentation as she goes to all places and spaces wherever there’s a story needs to be told. This hard-hitting broadcast journalist also sits down with various people from all walks of lives to hear their stories and views about anything under the sun. (source: Abs-cbn)

Are you ready Blackjacks?

Only 2 weeks left and our fave YGLadies will be here performing our fave songs like “Fire”, “I Don’t Care”, “Clap Your Hands”,  “Go Away” and their latest single “Lonely”

MANILA, Philippines — The concert of popular K-pop girl group 2NE1 at the Araneta Coliseum will be held on June 4, according to the organizer.

Happee Sy of Pulp Live Productions announced the date last night on Facebook as “our last hoorah before school starts.”

Sy also confirmed to Bulletin Entertainment that the event, dubbed as “The Party”, is really a concert to answer fans who were asking what will happen during the event.

“Yup,” Sy said in a text message to Bulletin Entertainment. She also clarified on Facebook that the event is not a fan meeting.

With the date now confirmed, fans are waiting to buy the tickets to the concert.

“Can’t wait,” “Super excited,” “Thank you for the amazing news,” and “Let’s go party Blackjacks” were just some of the fans’ reactions to the announcement:

The concert was originally scheduled on May 15 but was reset to June because of 2NE1’s comeback to the K-pop scene this April.

In addition to preparing for their Manila concert and new album, 2NE1 will be busy with their other activities.

2NE1 has signed up for a collaborative project with Adidas Originals in South Korea.

Last year, Adidas Originals designer Jeremy Scott made clothes for 2NE1 in time for the release of the girl group’s album.

2NE1′S albums zoom to number ONE!

 

2NE1 “To Anyone” CD zooms to the NUMBER ONE spot in one of the country’s biggest record retail chains, Astroplus/Astrovision’s album charts (dated January 10 to 16, 2011). Not only that, 2NE1′s “The First Mini-Album Repackage” (CD+DVD) occupies the NUMBER TWO spot! That’s TWO 2NE1 ALBUMS on the TOP… TWO POSITIONS of their album charts. Astroplus/Astrovision has more than 80 record stores nationwide!

“To Anyone” is 2NE1′s FIRST NUMBER ONE album in the Philippines and also Universal Records’ 15th Number One K-Pop album!

 

After Universal Records‘ coordination with YG Entertainment, 2NE1‘s albums (“The First Mini-Album Repackage” & “To Anyone”) have finally been released in the Philippines. On January 15, 2011, 2NE1′s Album Launch Event was held in four different big malls in the country -Astroplus The Block, Mall of Asia and Odyssey Megamall, SM Bacoor.

Estimated more than one thousand Blackjacks trooped to the four participating record stores. Some Blackjacks lined up early in the morning, waiting for the mall to open. Everybody’s excited to have a grab of 2NE1 albums and get those amazing freebies!

Some Blackjacks who came dressed as their favorite 2NE1 member showed off their modelling skills through a small fashion show. Four best-dressed fans from Astroplus The Block & MOA were chosen as winners of BEATS by Dr. Dre headphones! Lucky Blackjacks indeed. Odyssey Megamall & SM Bacoor were raffling off Super Junior ‘Super Show 3″ Concert tickets and autographed 2NE1 Korean Version CDs!!! That’s a lot of prizes for super duper lucky Blackjacks!

There’s the “Hot In Pink” contest wherein fans dressed up in pink can strike a pose. Their photos will be uploaded to 2NE1 Philippines’ Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/2ne1ph and 10 winners will receive the 2NE1 standees! 2NE1 dance cover groups also hyped up the event with their amazing performances! Their performances really wowed the crowd and Blackjacks patiently waited for their performances in all the four participating record stores!

Indeed, the 2NE1 album launch event was a success for having gained a high number of CD sales in just one day!

2NE1 is one of the kpop groups that have been close to the hearts of many Filipinos since member Sandara Park was a famous actress in the Philippines prior to her debut.

Special thanks to 2NE1PH and all their hardworking staff members, Astroplus, Odyssey and MYX, the #1 music channel in the Philippines and most of all all, much love to all Blackjacks who patiently waited for the Philippine album release and showing the immense support for 2NE1 during the album launch.

2NE1 will be busy in the coming months promoting their Japanese album release under Avex and next will be their comeback album !! See u all in the next 2NE1 Album Launch Event!
