2NE1 is officially back! *screams* *standing ovation* ( I'm a hardcore Blackjack ). In 2012 2ne1 released only one single named I Love You so we didn't see our girls often, in 2013 it was a good year for 2ne1 since they released three singles : Falling In Love, Do You Love Me and Missing You. Also we were lucky to see Bom and Dara in a mini variety web show called Double Park. I say a mini show because it only had like 3 or 4 episodes. ( Seriously Papa YG? You get to create a show with Dara and Bom the two most loveable, dorky, cute, 4D personalitites, I don't know how else to describe them and you only aired 4 episodes? 왜요? ). Anyway at least we got to see them a lot more often than in 2012. But it looks like 2014 is gonna be the year of 2NE1! Let me explain why :
First 2ne1 announced their world tour : D They are going to Asia countries first but I hope that they will be able to go everywhere to make all the Blackjacks of the world Happy ; )
Second they released their 2nd full length album and of course it's LEGEN- wait for it -DARY! Buy the album, listen to it and you will realize why 2ne1 are the Queens of K-pop.
So, to thank Blackjacks for waiting them for so long, they also released two music videos for their two title tracks : Come Back Home and Happy. Let's talk about that ( and not about love like Seungri ).
COME BACK HOME
The mv totally suits 2ne1 and they once again proved that they are the only girl group that can handle this kind of music. The mv is very crative, artistic, futuristic and many more impressive adjectives. It has also a very intersting plot. We have two kind of worlds, the actual and the virtual. The virtual one is the one that gets our attention first when the mv starts, since it's been gently advertised in the big screen. Our girls are totally against it, since they are doing anything to destroy him. Bom and Minzy are making bombs and CL is of course their leader. Dara decided to join the group because her boyfriend had depression and decided to go into the virtual world in order to feel better. Since Dara was left alone, she joined the girl group in order to save her love one. That's why she pulled the plug because they were going to destroy the virtual world and she wanted to save him. Nothing more to say. Just watch the mv to enjoy both the song and the awesome mini movie.
A tottally different song from Come Back Home. It'a a very happy pop song although the lyrics are sad and they are describing a not so happy situation. It's a song about a break-up and despite being very angry about your ex, with probably not so happy thoughts about him and the last thing you would wish for him is to be happy, well, the girls are doing exactly that. Instead of crying they wish him to be happy. Maybe it's a new strategy about break-ups now? I don't know. The mv follows that mood because it's filled with vivid and bright colors, some lyrics of the song pop out on your screen in a cartoon way and the girls walk down the streets wearing except from awesome clothes, also big smiles on their faces. Once again they are the only ones who can rock those outfits. Of course Jeremy Scott appears in the mv. Best buddies with 2ne1 and especially CL, I would say it was a happy surprise!
PS : About their world tour, I only want to mention one thing. They perfectly chose the name of their tour to be All Or Nothing because when we talk about 2NE1 is always All Or Nothing!
