Park Bom’s heels fall off during 2NE1′s performance at the ’22nd Seoul Music Awards’

Posted: 31 Jan 2013 08:35 AM PST

Park Bom lost her heels while performing at the 22nd Seoul Music Awards.

At the award show, 2NE1 sang their hit song “I Love You“. Although the ladies commanded the stage with their usual charisma, Park Bom’s heel slipped off her foot during the performance, causing her to stand on tip toes on that foot. She quickly solved the problem by taking off her other heel as well and performed on the stage barefoot.

Even though she could have been flustered by the situation, Park Bom handled the situation professionally, choosing the best option in a short amount of time. She never lost her smile even though she lost her heel at the very beginning of the performance, managed the choreography with one heel, and then continued on as if nothing had happened.

Check out the performance below, Bom already loses her heel by 0:45, and she takes off the other one by the 3:33 mark.

Crayon Pop express gratitude to their fans

Posted: 31 Jan 2013 06:12 AM PST

Crayon Pop recently sat down for an interview and shared their gratitude towards their devoted fans.

Crayon Pop shared, “Our fans revive our energy. If I were to recall one episode, we had to go to Japan, and our fans said they would revive our energy. As a surprise event, they did a cosplay as bodyguards and members of the press. We were surprised because we thought they were really bodyguards and press. We didn’t imagine that they were our fans.”

The members continued, “After getting a closer look, we realized they were people we saw a lot before. After hearing about it, we were touched. Other groups’ fans were saying that Crayon Pop’s fans are amazing. Even during music shows, they chant louder for us than anyone else… It is really encouraging. We have a lot of uncle fans who say that we’re like their nieces. We haven’t attended an awards ceremony yet, but fans came to our practice room and presented an awards ceremony for us. They even prepared a wreath and rookie award trophy. We were very grateful then. I think we were born with ‘fan fortune’.”

“We are receiving a lot of strength from fans these days. To repay them, we want to definitely show ourselves succeeding. Although fans smile when they see us, we also smile a lot because of our fans. We want to make them happy through our success. Also, even if we become more famous than we are now and get busy, our consideration of our fans won’t change.”

In other news, Crayon Pop recently made their comeback with a new single, which is a remix of their previously released hit titled "Bing Bing“.

Not only the title track, but they also specifically mentioned track 4, Se Se Se‘, on the album and discussed it with us. After hearing that, we were even more touched. Through Girls’ Generation’s compliments, we gained more strength for our activities.”

“Since the two of us are the vocal line of 4minute, there were many opportunities for us to sing together during concerts and radio programs, and we thought that at this time, it would be a good idea to release an album together. We asked our agency first if we could release an album. After our agency listened to our plans, they said, ‘Make something good,’ so we directly participated in the album jacket, style, and album production.”

“All of the 4minute members like it more when we work than when we rest. We would like to continue our album promotions longer and make 2YOON’s music and style widely known.”

2YOON recently made their debut with title track “24/7” off their album ‘Harvest Moon‘. The duo have been receiving attention as the first K-pop artists to attempt the country pop dance genre.
