From world star PSY to BIGBANG, 2NE1, EPIK HIGH and the freshly born WINNER. It was certainly enough to show YG’s power. The performances they delivered as each group or as a whole were a perfect source of entertainment for the audience. With the entire YG Family in once place, the audience was more than awe-struck to see various and dynamic performances.
YG Family Concert will be held for the first time in Taiwan in October.
On October 25, YG Family will be at the Taoyuan County Stadium for the “YG FAMILY 2014 GALAXY TOUR : POWER IN TAIWAN.”
Burmese K-Pop fans will get their first-ever chance to see South Korea’s 2NE1 on Saturday, as the girl group is set to perform at Rangoon’s Myanmar Event Park.
The four-member all-girl group arrived at Rangoon International Airport on Thursday night and held a press conference on Friday.
“We are very excited to meet you guys. We wouldn’t be here without you guys,” said CL, who sings in the group alongside bandmates Dara, Minzy and Bom. “So, I thank all from the bottom of our heart and we love you all.”
The concert will start at 7pm. Tickets start at 25, 000 kyat ($25), but the best seats in the house will go for 900, 000 kyat ($900), with a chance to have dinner with 2NE1’s members included for those willing to pay the hefty price. The event, titled “2NE1 in Myanmar Galaxy Stage,” is organized by Samsung Myanmar in collaboration with Living Sound Entertainment and YG Entertainment from Korea.
“Burmese fans welcomed us warmly at the airport last night. I expect during tomorrow’s concert fans will welcome us warmly too,” Dara told reporters.
Tickets to see the group are available at City Mart supermarkets, Ocean supermarkets, and Taw Win Center in Rangoon, Diamond Plaza in Mandalay, or by calling 1876.

2NE1 member Park Bom will be leaving the variety show “Roommate.”
On July 24, Baek Jung Ryeol of SBS’s “Roommate” revealed that “Park Bom’s last appearance will be on July 27. She didn’t participate in the filming, so there was nothing for us to film of her. It is true that she is leaving the show.”
News of Park Bom being investigated for smuggling drugs resurfaced this past June. Although the investigation happened four years ago, the scandal erupted and caused more questions and controversy around Park Bom. Despite YG CEO Yang Hyun Suk trying to clarify the situation, people have been curious as to whether or not Park Bom would still appear in “Roommate.”
Baek Jung Ryeol added “There are no plans to have Park Bom participate any further. There were no discussions about it. We edited Park Bom out of many parts in the upcoming episode. All of this is because it is a legal controversy.”
“2NE1 will be back to NYLON JAPAN on July 28!!!! Don’t miss it! Have fun @togawatakashi @nylonjapan and@cyanmagazine on INSTAGRAM. Keep in touch! love you all<3 tt @togawatakashi #nylonjapan #cyanmagazine”
