2NE1’s 2nd full album “CRUSH” is to be sold in Japan on March 19, in its Korean version.
YG Entertainment made the announcement on March 5, “Up to now 2NE1’s songs released in Japan were translated into Japanese, but this album will be sold as it is, which is Korean. The reason is that local related personnel who listened to the album gave good reviews on the original songs, so we decided to keep it this way.”
2NE1, who successfully finished the Seoul concerts of their 2nd World Tour “ALL OR NOTHING” at Seoul Songpagu Olympic Park SK Olympic Handball Arena on March 1 and 2, will now move on to spread the excitement in Japan. In Japan they will be continuing with the Tour on July 5 and 6 (Sunday) at Yokohama Arena, and on July 12 and 13 at Kobe World Memorial Hall.
Their 2nd full album released on Feb 27 is gaining much popularity by sweeping across 10 online music charts. The music video of the title song “COME BACK HOME” attracted 1.6 million viewers in a single day, while being extolled home and broad for its sci-fi-movie visual effects.
Their offline album comes out on March 7, and they will have their first comeback performance on SBS’s Inkigayo.
