Product Description[ About Book ]
The first photobook to be released since their debut, it captures 2NE1’s first vacation with the members, to Sandara’s hometown, Philippines, since their debut. With the members’ beautiful vacation photos, the photos that the members take of each other and even the handwritten thoughts of the members on their vacation, the book which contains the memories of 2NE1’s first vacation is born.
Taken by the best photographer, the book contains more than 1000 photos that are similar to those that are seen in magazines. The book will showcase 2NE1’s appearance ‘completely’; the 2NE1 with a free-spirited/bohemian appearance and also the 2NE1 after a stylish transformation. In the book, you’d also be able to read letters the members have written to each other and feel 2NE1’s close friendship and affection towards each other.
The excitement of their first vacation trip has been captured vividly in this book.
The International edition of the photo essay will include the original Korean content with English and Japanese translations. Rather than containing typical photos, the book is unique as it is 2NE1’s vivid travel diary that also contains the girls’ stories. A photo album that contains the perfect blend of photos and stories have been completed.[ About 2NE1 ]
2NE1 (Korean: 투애니원; pronounced To Anyone or Twenty One) is a four-member South Korean girl group formed by YG Entertainment in 2009. The band consists of CL, Minzy, Dara, and Bom. The name 2NE1 combines the phrases “”21st century”” and “”new evolution”” (NE).
First appearing in “”Lollipop””, a commercial campaign with Big Bang for LG Electronics, 2NE1’s debut single “”Fire”” was released on May 6, 2009. Since then, the group has released two extended plays, 2NE1 and 2NE1 2nd Mini Album, and one studio album, To Anyone. Their first EP, 2NE1 spawned the number-one single “”I Don’t Care””, which won them the “”Song of the Year”” award at the 2009 Mnet Asian Music Awards. Their follow-up singles, such as “”Go Away””, “”Lonely”” and “”I Am The Best”” were similarly successful, with “”I Am the Best”” winning 2NE1 their second “”Song of the Year”” award in 2011.
2NE1 officially debuted in Japan in September 2011 with a mini album titled NOLZA, which contained re-made versions of the Korean songs featured on the group’s 2nd Mini Album. Since then, the group has released one studio album, Collection, and two physical singles in Japan. 2NE1 are set to debut in the United States in 2013, with work on the group’s debut English studio album beginning in 2010 with producer will.i.am. In 2012, The New York Times named 2NE1’s performance at the Prudential Center in New Jersey as one of the “”Best Concerts of 2012″”. As of 2013, the band has 400 million video views on YouTube as well as 27 million digital singles sold.[ Table of Contents ]
