2NE1 Tour Announced While CL Naked In Missing You Video Causes Outcry


Korea: 2NE1, one of the world’s most popular girl bands, have announced a World Tour happening in 2014. The cities announced so far are, Seoul, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and Malaysia.

In an often hilarious video the four band members CL, Dara, Bom and Minzy announced the cities they would visit, starting in March 2014, in Korean, Japanese & English. However, they promised more cities would be announced and even invited promoters to get in touch. Dara said, “Black Jack fans are the reason for our visit. So promoters, give us a call!” Minzy added, “Please bring your friends and family. It’s going to be an exciting one”, before CL brought the announcement to an end.

2NE1 Tour Announcement Video


2NE1  release a new single, Missing You, on Nov 21st. The video has sparked controversy due to lead singer CL appearing naked in a few scenes. Following heated arguments recently in the US and Europe about how women are portrayed in pop videos – Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke being the most recent examples –  the appearance of CL, covering herself with only her arms and legs, will likely now see the debate spread to Southeast Asia.
