2NE1’s CL Talks Music and Prejudice Against Asian Women in “GQ Korea”

CL-Feature_7.2013

2NE1 member and solo artist CL appeared in the July issue of “GQ Korea” and talked about the stereotypes Asian women face in today’s world.

In response to questions about the Korean music industry and the international appeal of 2NE1’s music, CL said: “From our [2NE1] first album’s song “Fire,” I never had the consciousness of making and singing songs only for Koreans. [YG] Producer Teddy is also the same. I do what I like to do, not what I think matches Korea. While living overseas, I never had a point where I was embarrassed of Korean music. My father really likes pop music, and I haven’t lived in Korea for long periods at a time.

'Inkigayo' mistakenly announces Seungri's comeback; OP is crying forever


In what must've been a huge surprise for Big Bang's Seungri, SBS's 'Inkigayo' mistakenly announced his comeback for next week before quickly doing an about-face.

During an MC segment on the latest episode, ZE:A's Kwanghee announced, "Artists such as INFINITE, B2ST, Kim Hyun Joong, and Big Bang's Seungri is scheduled to come back through 'Inkigayo', so please look forward to them".

Unfortunately, however, Seungri is not scheduled for a comeback anytime soon! It seems that Kwanghee had him mixed up with fellow Big Bang member G-Dragon, who is indeed preparing to come back in mid-August.

"We're not sure if it was mislabeled in the script, or if Kwanghee mistakenly said the wrong name, but it was an incident brought on by the hurried ending comments," said a representative for the music show.

YG Entertainment also said that there were no comeback plans for Seungri. "G-Dragon, Taeyang, and Kang Seung Yoon are currently in line for their respective comebacks," they said.

How we wish it could be true, but alas, it was just an accidental slip of the tongue.

This episode was so good! Park Ji Sung is a variety genius. Koo Jae Cheol did really well too. Poor Sulli. She was just there to be the other team's Queen. So was Ji Hyo for that matter.
Yoon Eun Hye I miss you, come on the show! Do you think Kwang Soo dated a celebrity?
Ah I love Suk Jin. He's so underrated. I saw comments that he should leave because all he does is fail and be a negative for his team. Ugh.

I haven't done a full listen yet, but what I can tell by making this post is that every song seems to have a different genre. Junsu even tweeted people tried to dissuade him from the track "This song is funny..right?". That song confuses me. Which songs are you favs?
