[NEWS] 2NE1, confessed their soft inner minds in the world tour documentary.. ‘Showed tears’

2NE1-All Or Nothing-Group

with 2nd world tour ‘AON (ALL OR NOTHING)’ coming close.

This video that has an interview format was revealed through YG official blog (www.yg-life.com) on the early morning of January 21st and it was filmed in the shooting site of 2NE1 poster, which became the center of attention with a fantasy vibe. The documentary teaser is about 3 minutes long and it is getting attention with the phrases that show serious but soft side of 2NE1 members, who only have been showing happy and powerful sides so far.

Bom showed tears with the phrases “Right now at this moment? I think this is love. Towards people?” and CL is also arousing curiosity by saying “People around me keep saying ‘How do they manage to do that?’ and it naturally made me not to do it. Since I am also a person”.

Minzy said “We play on the stage… but you can think of it as we are playing until we die just to survive” and honestly shared her resolutions to make effort to show powerful side on the stage until now.

Dara said “I think 2NE1 is just like me. It is like my name… the first time when I felt that was after 2NE1’s first concert” and was almost about to cry and said “The people who are on top have gathered so it seems like I always think about ‘What is the role I can play in the group’ even until now” and shared her worries as a singer.

This video which was filmed with hand-held method and a cinema tone is an opportunity to see another side of 2NE1 members that contrasts with fancy make-up and outfits. It is giving rise to the feeling of anticipation about what kind of things they are going to show in 2014 as the dates for their world tour and comeback is coming near.

Also on this day, along with the teaser, the world tour main poster that has fantasy vibe was revealed. In the poster, the members are showing charms that are dreamy and full of feminine characteristics as if they are a space goddess.

Along with preparing for the new album, 2NE1, who are going on a 2nd world tour first time as a girl group, is expected to meet with the fans overseas in 13 cities of 9 countries of Korea, Japan and China and so on through 17 sets of performances.

The world tour will start off with the performance in Seoul, which will take place on March 1st and 2nd at Olympics Park SK Handball Stadium located in Bangee-dong, Songpa-gu in Seoul. The ticket reservation for Seoul performance is expected to be made available on January 21st and 22nd through G Market.

[FEATURE+FASHION] Starcast: How To Wear Skinny Jeans – Learn it from the Girl Groups

Girl group the principle of fashion, has to must show off slim body figures no matter what kind of clothes they wear. They have to react fast to what is popular and have to lead the trend. Skinny jean is an It item in that aspect. Just wearing it highlights the beautiful body figure and it matches well with everything.

We learn from girl groups!!

The first is a way to wear the skinny jean. The styling of girl groups’ skinny jean is divided into 4 parts. ▶Being chic with a leather skinny jean, ▶ showing off charisma with a ripped skinny jean. ▶Look fantastically cool with a printed skinny jean, ▶also emphasize the natural charm with a basic skinny jean.

We took a close look into girl groups’ skinny jean styling and ways to apply.

◆ Leather skinny jean = The experts of skinny jean wears this often. The style varies depending on whether it is glossy or not. Being glossy can emphasize sexiness and having no gloss can emphasize chicness.

Best girl = When it comes to a leather skinny jean, it is of course Hyun-a. She loves wearing the leather skinny jean regardless of whether it is on the stage, the photo wall or the real way. It is an item that is hard to be pulled off but there is no such thing as embarrassment. She shows a perfect beauty of the body figure by making the leather skinny jean stick tight to her slim body. Because of that, the sexy charm is upgraded.

How to = It is not Hyun-a if it looks normal. She matches the leopard fur to a leather skinny jean for the most of the time. But, to avoid ‘Too much’ styling, she unifies the top and bottom entirely with black. She makes her legs look long~er by wearing kill hills that is made up of similar material as the leather skinny jean.

The point = It is a leopard fur jacket that covers the waist slightly. Because of the short length, it is really showing the slim waist. A brown fur and the leather skinny jean are matching well in a fancy way. She heightened the sexy atmosphere with gold short hair and thick smoky make-ups.

Ways to apply ① Add leather to the leather!

If fur is too burdensome, then leather + leather style also looks good. It can give off a chic vibe while reducing the burden. Victoria matched a leather skinny jean to a leather rider jacket at the airport. She made it look less boring by adding in white details to the jacket and shoes.

Ways to apply ② Use a long outer jacket!

If the waist and hip line that is revealed in between the leather skinny jean, try matching the long outer clothes. It is the method of styling that CL uses often. To a khaki long military jacket that is trimmed with fur, she wore a black skinny jean. To this, she added charisma with thick chain necklace and walker shoes.

Ways to apply ③ With basic coat, the burden ↓

It is a way to coordinate the leather skinny jean that everyone can pull off easily. In the case of Yuri, she wore a light khaki coat with a leather skinny jean. She chose a tight coat, hid her legs and emphasized the beauty of body figure. To this, she wore black shoes that have noticeable kill hills and aimed for a rock chic charm.

◆ Ripped skinny jean = A ripped skinny jean is still highly popular even in the cold winter season. The ripped skinny jean has 2 styles. It is either to rip it in a really bold way until the knees are revealed or just slightly rip it. Let’s try the punk look with the ripped jean alone.

The best = The one who lead the ripped skinny jean style is Dara. She loves it so much that she has ripped skinny jean for every color. She shows a twist in her image with wild ripped skinny jean as it contrasts with her pretty looks.

How to = She style it in a manly way with a ripped skinny jean such as wearing a white t-shirt with a skinny jean that only ripped slightly the knee part. To this, layer the blue plaid shirt with black cardigan. She added charisma with black buckle boots.

The point = The point was the detail in the skinny jean. Dara’s skinny jean is connected in a row with silver chains from thigh to knee. Just like someone who prefers styles that are full of individuality, even her ripped skinny jean was different.
