2NE1 announces Bom’s solo, new mini-album, and first concert info
After announcing 2NE1’s official comeback last week, the YG-Life blog has finally followed up with further information. Check it out below!
“On April 21st, we will be releasing Park Bom’s solo track, ‘Please Don’t Cry‘, as a digital single. The single is the work of Teddy, and features a piano and house beat, which acts as a fast-paced R&B dance track. The music video will be released on the same day.
Unfortunately, we do not have plans for Park Bom to perform her solo on broadcast, but we will be starting aggressive and assertive activities for 2NE1 until the end of August. (2NE1 will be debuting in Japan on September).
What do we mean by aggressive and assertive promotions?
Unlike how we introduced 2NE1’s triple title tracks – “Can’t Nobody“, “Go Away“, “Clap Your Hands” – during their last mini-album promotions (which ended with their follow-up, “It Hurts“) we will be releasing a new song every three weeks.
The reason we have chosen to take this route is because we are more than satisfied with the level of quality in 2NE1’s new songs, and we are intending to use all six of the album’s songs as title tracks for this promotion.
We will be starting season three of ‘2NE1 TV’ with PD Choi. We are currently looking at an air date of around the beginning of June.
Finally, 2NE1 will be holding their first ever concert at the end of August. We have already surveyed the concert hall and feel that we will be able to run a concert with 2NE1’s representative tracks and their new six tracks.
We hope that our fans will give their support and encouragement towards 2NE1’s new music and promotions.
Park Bom’s new MV for “Please Don’t Cry” to feature rookie actor Kim Young Kwang
Today, YG Entertainment announced that Park Bom would be kicking off 2NE1’s official activities with her second solo track, “Please Don’t Cry“.
Reportedly, Bom already filmed the music video in secret at a studio in Kyungkido sometime in March with model and rookie actor, Kim Young Kwang, as her co-star.
Born in 1987, Kim Young Kwang first made his debut as a model before going on to star in KBS’s “My Fairy Lady“, MBC’s “Charming by the Day“, and KBS’s “White Christmas“.
As reported earlier, the song is the work of Teddy, and features a piano and house beat, which acts as a fast-paced R&B dance track. The single and music video is scheduled for release on April 21st.
