To release their official debut song on the coming 6th, YG Entertainment’s new girl group 2NE1 is garnering the interest of netizens.
On the 1st, as a mere 20 seconds of 2NE1’s official debut song and title song ‘Fire’ was released, more than 200,000 people visited the official homepage (www.yg-2ne1.com) in just a day.
On YG Entertainment’s side, “After the 2NE1 homepage was opened, the daily average for visitors were about 50,000, but when the music was released on the 1st, more than 200,000 visited, so now we are working on a server extension.” They showed a surprised reaction.
2NE1’s “Fire” was composed and written by 1tym’s Teddy, and being a reggae/fast hip-hop song, it is quite different than the music of other girl groups in the country. Especially after 20 seconds was released on the 1st, the plans of 10 seconds being released every day after that gathers interest.
It is scheduled for the official debut of 2NE1’s full song to be on the 6th, along with two different versions of the music video, and the first debut stage performance to be on SBS Inkigayo on the 17th.
