"Can’t Nobody Party Like 2NE1" plus 24 more

Can’t Nobody Party Like 2NE1

Posted: 03 Dec 2012 12:20 PM PST

It was one electrifying and emotional night for the four ladies as they wrapped up the 2NE1 NEW EVOLUTION GLOBAL TOUR 2012 in Singapore

The four spunky ladies of 2NE1 opened the final show of their NEW EVOLUTION GLOBAL TOUR 2012 with crowd favourite I Am The Best last night, turning Singapore Indoor Stadium into a huge party venue right from the beginning.

"I don't want to regret anything tonight," leader CL's holler was greeted by deafening screams from the Blackjacks (official fan club name).

Temperatures rose rapidly among the 8,200 people in the stadium during the first segment of the concert where hit dance tracks like FIRE, Clap Your Hands and Don't Stop The Music blasted off the sound system. True to YG Family's style, the 'swag' and 'fierceness' exuding from the group was outstanding.
While stunning visuals and pyrotechnics such as multi-colour laser lights, video background and stage fireworks definitely added points to the concert, it is the group's stage presence and charisma that brought the house down last night.

Starting from CL's solo deejaying on an elevated platform to Park Bom's rendition of Don't Cry and You & I which showed off her vocal prowess, 2NE1 proved why they are the girl group with the most character. Besides appearing in a 'car' with CL for Please Don't Go, Minzy was just as captivating with her dance solo.

But what drove the crowd wild had to be Dara's Kiss where a lucky male fan was chosen on the spot by the lady herself. To the envy of many at the show, he got to enjoy 'skinship' with Dara and received a real kiss from her during the performance.

Other than props such as a shiny gold-coloured sofa and a mobile stage, the ladies also donned on fanciful costumes like the cheerleading outfits, complete with pom-poms, during Follow Me. With a packed stadium jumping along to the music, 2NE1 were far from 'Lonely' as they performed some of their slower songs.

What makes concerts especially electrifying is the contagious energy that spreads from the performing artistes to the fans below the stage. With the four ladies head-banging to the roaring music and grooving their hearts out to the catchy tunes, the fans were inspired to wave their white wing-shaped lightsticks with greater passion.

2NE1's call for the crowd to stand up for the song Work It brought the show to a new high as everyone in the stadium, including the scarce few middle-aged fans, sprang up from their seats and danced along to the music.

Roller coaster ride of emotions it was, for 2NE1 and Blackjacks, as the atmosphere turned emotional when the two-hour concert was nearing its closure. Dara, who was already teary-eyed during the rehearsals, had big droplets rolling down her cheeks while Minzy and Park Bom tried to hold back theirs. Even the usually cool and collected CL became husky-voiced.

The four ladies returned on stage by sliding down from the inflated 'playground' during the encore and the fans were more than happy when their beloved idols performed I Don't Care and I Am The Best for a second time. As it was the conclusion to their world tour, 2NE1 and their band had a group picture taken with all the fans in the background last night.

The concert was supposed to end with the encore when the fans started singing Please Don't Go, beckoning the group to come on stage again. As the original song list had been exhausted, I Love You was aptly chosen as the true finale. The additional performance not only was a bonus for the Blackjacks, but it was also 2NE1's final relish of the stage for their NEW EVOLUTION tour.

Under any circumstances, CNU is a nice person!!

Posted: 03 Dec 2012 07:50 AM PST

Vol. 14 Under any circumstances, CNU is a nice person!!

Q: This volume is the 2nd volume about CNU.
[Sandeul] Yes, I will say it. At first glance, CNU hyung has strong charisma, and honestly, at first, I thought he was a really hard person to approach.

Q: He kind of has a world of his own (in a good way). He has an image of an artist.
[Sandeul] Like he would scorn him you if you talked to him about something foolish (laugh).
[CNU] I would never do that~
[Jinyoung] But, he doesn't talk about foolish things; Sandeul actually does a lot of funny things (laugh).
[CNU] Ah~ that's true (laugh). And for the good and bad, I think that these glasses are really big.
[Sandeul] But once you talk to him, he was a really good person despite my impression!
[CNU] I'm originally an introverted person, and I can't assertively talk to someone. So I'm usually seen as cool by peopleI meet for the first time. 

Q: And people think you're unapproachable.
[Sandeul] But the more you get to know the person that is CNU, I thought that he's kind, and warm and a rea~~~~lly good person (emphasis!)
[Gongchan] Yup, yup (nods heavily)
[Everyone] (everyone nods seeing Gongchan)
[CNU] (smiles shyly)
[Sandeul] So, I'm going to say this borrowing this opportunity. I'm really sorry about that time……and I……love…….CNU hyung!
[Baro] Then I'll confess too! I love CNU hyung too!

Q: The two of you are going to confess like this all of a sudden!? (laugh)
[Jinyoung] No, I love CNU hyung more and I know about him the most~!

Q: Because Jinyoung and CNU are B1A4's father and mother, so husband and wife (laugh).
[Jinyoung] So CNU hyung and I share a mutual love!
[CNU] Yes we do!
[Sandeul] Hey! Why didn't you say anything when Baro and I confessed?
[CNU] You know how I feel even if I don't tell you right? (big CNU smile)
[Sandeul & Baro] Uh huh (the 2 who are melted by the CNU smile)
[Jinyoung] Wait, didn't Gongchan not confess?
[Everyone] Oh yeah~!
[Gongchan]Conversely, even if I don't say anything, my feelings are understood by CNU hyung! Right hyung! (stares at CNU)
[CNU] Uh huh (stares back at Gongchan and softly nods)
[Sandeul] This is just exactly CNU hyung. What I wanted to say out loud was that, although I believe that our fans know about CNU hyungs greatness, and I know that there are people who don't know him well but I don't want them to misunderstand him at first glance.
[Gongchan] Then I will say it out loud too! Really, CNU hyung is nice and is very handsome on the outside!!
[CNU] Thank you~

 Q: Also, does CNU still check if the lights are shut off and check the dorms when you guys leave?
[CNU] Yes. This is just a habit already. Oh yeah! I feel a little awkward saying this after everyone complimented me but……there is 1 favor I would like to ask everyone!
[Baro] Eh what, what?
[CNU] Well it's not that big of a deal.
[Jinyoung] That makes me even more curious! Just tell us already~!
[CNU] I want you guys to stop leaving your socks everywhere after walking around the dorm. Ah, I'm not talking about everyone but……
[Baro] Could this be about me?
[CNU] These 2 can't seem to stop doing that (force smile). But the amount has reduced recently.
[Gongchan] Ah~ I understand! Please clean up your clothes and your presents you get from your fans! We moved and our dorm was actually neat but now……it's slowly changing again.
[CNU] Please be conscious about it a little more~!
[Jinyoung & Baro]……Ok…….Sorry.
[CNU] Um~ the other person isn't Jinyoung, it's Sandeul (Sandeul who is blankly staring into the distance)

Q: Hey Sandeul, are you listening to what CNU is saying?
[Sandeul]…… (briefly absentminded)
[Jinyoung] (slaps his hand) Sandeul wake up!
[Sandeul] (returns to himself) Eh, what, what are we talking about?
[Everyone] (laugh)

Q: CNU please tell him what we were talking about again.
[CNU] No, it's ok. Never mind~ (laugh).
[Sandeul] Hey don't things from me~ (laugh).
[Jinyoung] We aren't~

 Q: Really, we aren't (laugh).
[Sandeul] (as if nothing happened) And can I talk about something that I'm jealous about CNU hyung?
[Gongchan] Go ahead~
[Sandeul] That is how small CNU hyung's face is!
[Everyone] (laugh)
[Sandeul] And also , his broad shoulders!
[Everyone] (laugh)
[Sandeul] CNU hyung is working out every night, and at first when I saw that, I honestly thought that it would just end in 3 days. But he didn't get discouraged and it is still continuing. In addition, he doesn't just do it, he has a set program, and he does it until the end every day. I respect CNU hyung for his earnestness and his persistence. Also,
[Baro] You have more? (laugh)
[Sandeul] CNU hyung's long legs! I'm also jealous of his hips when he wears pants!
[Jinyoung] In the end, aren't you jealous of everything?
[Everyone] (ROFL)
[CNU] (in a small voice) Say more (laugh).

Q: Also, didn't you say that you were jealous of Jinyoung's right arm before?
[Sandeul] I am totally asking for too much/asking for something I can't get (laugh). Also,
[Gongchan] Eh~ You're going to say more?
[Baro] You're so greedy~ (laugh).
[Sandeul]CNU hyung's smile! Hyung's smile is soft and warm and his personality shows, and above all, it's cool!
[Everyone] (agrees)
[CNU] Sandeul, thank you for complimenting me so much~ (full faceCNU smile).
[Sandeul] The next volume is about me so, please do well!
[Baro] So that's what it was~! (laugh).
[CNU] I got you! Please anticipate a lot Sandeul~!
[Sandeul] CNU hyung is a really really nice person~ (thanks him A LOT) Thank you hyung~!
[Baro] He didn't say anything yet though (laugh).
[Jinyoung] He's running wildly by himself again–
[CNU] Ah~ what should I do for the next volume~. I'm worried now (laugh).

Park Si Yeon excited to work with Morgan Freeman on ‘The Last Knights’

Posted: 03 Dec 2012 06:35 AM PST

Park Si Yeon, who is set to appear in a new movie starring Morgan Freeman and Clive Owen called 'The Last Knights', will leave for the Czech Republic to begin shooting in early December.

The movie, a joint project between Korean and Hollywood studio, is a fantasy epic about a band of warriors who seek revenge on a corrupt emperor.

Park Si Yeon said she initially had reservations about participating in the project as she believed it would be too much of a challenge, but her husband motivated her to give it a shot.

"Frankly, I'm a little scared about going there all by myself. The production system will be very different from how we do things in Korea, so I may have a hard time for a while, but hopefully it'll also be fun. It's amazing to be given the opportunity to work with an actor like Morgan Freeman, who I have watched in movies since I was young, and I expect I'll be able to learn a lot from him," she said.

Park Si Yeon is planning to focus on her family after the project. "I think I'll be able to wrap up shooting by the end of this year, so I'm hoping to take some rest and have a baby next year. When it comes to true happiness, I guess it's all about finding the right balance of family and work," she said.

"I couldn't take care of all the house chores for about four months" while shooting KBS soap 'The Innocent Man,' which ended recently, she admitted.

"My husband didn't know I'd often have to work all through the night. As he knew I was so tired from shooting, he was always very considerate and supported me to focus on the show without worrying about anything else," she said.
