From 21 to 2NE1

I wasn’t able to post this yesterday… since I wasn’t able to get my daily kbites dose.

I was reading kbites awhile ago and it was posted on the site that YG is going to change the official name of the the female Big Bang from 21 (To Anyone) to 2NE1. Why? Because it seems there was an artist who has the same name! The artist debuted sometime in 2005.

Excerpts from the article:

YG clears up about the matter of ‘female Big Bang‘ group 21 having the same name as another singer.

YG said, “It is such a shame that we didn’t thought of a singer with the same name. Even though we do not have any plans to change their name, we will change the English name of ‘To Anyone (투애니원)’ to 2NE1. “

“Though they have the same name, the meaning to the names are different. Hence we hope that fans will not misunderstand. Please continue to support the group.”


I know their names are confusing.. I mean it was Sista then it became 21.. then now its 2NE1. I think its time for them to have an official name so fans will not be confused anymore!
