2NE1’s Minzy receives mixed responses for her supposed ‘new face’ + YG denies plastic surgery rumors!

2NE1 member Minzy is being noticed for looking rather different while performing for the 1000th episode of KBS 1’s “Open Music Concert” along with fellow 2NE1 members Park Bom, CL, and Sandara Park. 

Netizens made screen captures of Minzy, whose face seemed a bit different than the features she is commonly recognized for. Most of the attention went to the singer’s nose and jawline.

In a phone conversation a representative of Minzy responded to the rumors, “Minzy is getting prettier, as she turned twenty this year. She did not get plastic surgery. She simply became prettier; there is nothing more than that.”

Netizens’ Comments on the ‘rumors’:

1. [+1,312, -54] Seems like she got work done on her nose but she looks way better now

2. [+948, -46] This is about as much work as she should get done. I hope she doesn’t touch up more.

3. [+952, -52] Yup, she looks just fine the way she is now so please don’t get more work done ㅠㅠ My heart breaks every time I see Park Bom ㅠㅠ She was so pretty during ‘Fire’

4. [+115, -5] First time seeing a celebrity praised for getting work done ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+82, -3] The surgery came out now. Look how pretty she looks with her nose done. But Minzy, let’s stop here. 

6. [+67, -4] She definitely got prettier… not noticeably different but prettier while retaining her charms. She’s fine the way she is now so I hope she doesn’t think of getting more~

7. [+59, -1] It’s really been a while since I saw a celebrity praised for plastic surgery ㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+36, -1] Just don’t follow Bom unni, okay? Keep it minimal!

Netizens’ Comments on YG’s Statement:

1. [+575, -9] No one will hate on you for getting plastic surgery. Take it easy.

2. [+363, -15] They talk as if the minute a woman turns 20, she sheds her skin and goes through a beautiful transformation ㅋㅋ Stop lying

3. [+314, -19] I drank and drive but didn’t drive under the influence ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+42, -4] Why lie and chip at her image? 

5. [+25, -3] Her nose is clearly different… How do you just magically turn beautiful once you turn 20?

6. [+23, -5] There’s clearly a filler in her nose!

7. [+19, -0] I actually feel betrayed by Minzy. I thought she’d be more honest with herself. 

8. [+13, -3] Coolly admitting it would bring more compliments anyway, why even lie about it? It’s so frustrating when I see celebrities make stupid excuses and garner more hate for it.

[131112] 2NE1, will they drop their new song? Suddenly plans to appear in MAMA at Nov.22

Girl group 2NE1 recently showed some movement to continue their new song relay in the second half year.

On 12th, 2NE1 suddenly decided to appear in MAMA(Mnet Asian Music Awards) which was not scheduled. As they did not announce any further plans in the end of the year, many are predicting MAMA appearance will be their comeback stage.

On their fan sites, many are predicting that 2NE1 just filmed their music video which anticipates their comeback. Considering their video completion time, after releasing their new song next week they are likely to take their comeback stage on 22th at MAMA.

Agency YG Entertainment is recently keeping their new song announcement a secret. Thus, 2NE1 is also likely to comeback in a surprise manner.

In the previous songs ‘Falling In Love' and 'Do You Love Me' 2NE1 showed cute reggae and pink colored personality which was a big transformation. Third new song garners attention with their distinguished charms among other girl groups.

Girl group with the most strong individuality, 2NE1 finished their world tour in a success for the first time as girl group. They are expected receive hot response from not only Korea but in overseas.

Meanwhile, Asia’s biggest music festival MAMA on 22th will be held in Hong Kong Asia World EXPO arena(AWE).

If you haven’t voted for the girls today in MAMA be sure to do so today and everyday!


Also, until YG Entertainment confirms we won’t know for sure if there will actually be a single release. What we do know is that the girls will attend the upcoming MAMA awards!!!

2NE1 - 131108 Dazed & Digital Magazine Interview!

Dazed Digital: Fans have been waiting a very long time for your return but it keeps getting pushed back. What, besides CL’s solo, have you all been doing and why has this new album taken so long to come out?

Dara: After releasing “I LOVE YOU” we immediately went on a world tour to meet with our foreign fans which pushed back our album plans.

Bom: Before our (summer) comeback we continuously recorded songs, maintained our health by working out and decided what kind of items and concepts we should wear and do for our new single. We were working hard to prepare for the album.

DD: A brief snippet of ‘Falling In Love’ was heard in 2012 on the Korean music show Inkigayo - did it feel strange that after an entire year of holding onto this song it finally came out… were you not impatient?

Minji: As much as our fans have been waiting for us, we also couldn’t wait to release new material. 

CL: We made an active decision to prepare for that comeback like it was our debut. We wanted to work as hard as possible and prepare as much as we can. We worked on a lot of material and “Falling In Love” came out at a time that fit the summer season.

DD: The 2NE1 image has softened down overall of late, was that a refreshing change from your previous concepts and what brought it about?

CL: It wasn’t an attempt to break away from that fierce concept we are known for; it was something that came about naturally. We recorded fun tracks and decided to show a different side of ourselves that was more pleasant. We did have to adjust a bit to this performance aspect and even asked ourselves, “Are we really allowed to smile like this on stage?” We would be happy to know that the audience can get a good vibe and feeling through watching this performance and we all felt comfortable in this concept.

DD: What’s the biggest artistic difference between the 2NE1 of your last major album release in 2011 and this new album?

CL: It’s hard to reveal all of the exact differences since we have yet to release the material. However, I can assure you that you will see the fierce 2NE1 that you have seen on our past releases but also a more developed and evolved 2NE1. We’ve definitely evolved on this album and can’t wait for everyone to hear it.

DD: In the time you’ve been 2NE1 each member has grown up and matured but who has shown that the most and in what way?

Bom: I think Minji since in her case she has been dealing with this lifestyle much earlier in her life and as compared to her friends, so as a result I think she has developed strong mentality through this process.

Minji: I turned 20 this year, so I am planning on expressing my maturity in our performances and I hope that the fans look forward to it.    

DD: 2NE1 have often been held up as “ambassadors” of K-Pop for the international market - did you ever see yourselves as that? And how did you feel about that role being given to you as a group?

CL: I’m thankful for it. We honestly just wanted to create the best music as possible and if the fans in the international market embrace it, we are grateful and appreciative. We feel like we should repay our fans with better music. Every time we release an album I think to myself “How should we make our fans happy?” I hope you guys enjoy the upcoming releases.

Dara: I believe there is a way of exchanging greetings with these foreign fans when we do overseas performances. I want to develop those skills gradually so that we can get closer to our international fans.

DD: With such a long time between albums there are a lot of eyes back on the group - do you feel the pressure to make your comeback a success, and how do you deal with that ?

CL: I believe now is the time to take everything to another level. It’s definitely a challenging task, but as long as we have to deal with this fact wouldn’t it be better to do it with a positive mind? I believe that if I enjoy the process I will be able to have good results and overcome the hardships.

DD: How do you personally measure your success as an artist? Through sales, chart positions, critical acclaim, fan reactions?

Minji: Indeed if we have good result on the charts we will be thankful and happy for it. However I believe it is more important that the fans have an interest and love for us than our chart numbers.  There is no better feeling than when people tell me “I really like your songs” or hearing our songs everywhere we visit and also enjoying the songs ourselves.

DD: Do you read your own press? What are your thoughts when you read something that’s unfavourable or critical towards you… can you switch off your emotions or does it affect you?

Dara: It can be hard for entertainers to be commented with positive reactions in a way.  I believe that negative comments are kind of an interest for people. It is more important how to apply these criticisms constructively so that I can focus on developing my talents and skills.

DD: You worked with producer extraordinaire Teddy again… how has the working relationship evolved between producer and group? How much input do you have towards the 2NE1 sound/lyrics?

Dara: Our producer Teddy is like a magician because he helped us derive our unique characteristics since we debuted with ‘Fire’.  It is the same for ‘Falling in Love’. Since that single was different from our previous styles he adjusted the track to fit us better.  He is a person who gives us good advice and supports us in every single way.

CL: Above all, his songs have heartfelt words of gratitude. We work together to come up with the concepts and make sure that they are honest. We also worked together closely on writing my solo single “THE BADDEST FEMALE”.

DD: What is the biggest misconception that the fans or media have about 2NE1?

Dara: Since we 2NE1 have shown powerful performances through songs so people think that we have fierce personalities, however this is not true.  Especially CL who is very feminine when she is not on stage living as Chaelin (her real name) - she enjoys meditating and cooking.

DD: CL, you wore a white swimsuit outfit on a music show for your solo promo and came under fire for it, yet male idols routinely bare their bodies and their physiques are celebrated… how do you feel about the double standard going on here? Should (and can) views like this be changed?

CL: Actually I’ve been wearing swimsuits ever since we debuted. The outfit that I wore at that time was a one piece swim suit with a belt on - it was not a two piece swim suit. Whatever you wear as long as you are devoted to the music and express it with your own heart, you should stand by it.

DD: When you made your comeback in the summer your fans made much of that, announcing that the Queens of Kpop were back… when you hear something like that, what’s your reaction?

Dara: I know that it’s not easy to wait for 2 years and I really thank our fans that have been constantly rooting for us and loving our new single. It was a refreshing reminder that we have devoted fans who are precious to our existence.

Minji: I know that each member has a different personality and preferences however I believe that the main reason why 2NE1 is loved both domestically and internationally is because of our music.  I will always do my best to repay all of our fans by being amazing on stage.
