To celebrate these talented Korean artists, the Korean Cultural Center Washington DC is thrilled to host a new K-Pop Giveaway each month of 2012. Each time will feature a different K-Pop artist or group, and 10 or more winners will receive a special prize based from the featured artist, such as CD albums, photo books, clothing, or other exclusive accessories.
– About PSY and 2NE1
Joining the YG family in 2010, singer-songwriter PSY is a consummate showman, who has become best known for his exciting and theatrical stage performances. Since his debut, he has done more than 20 concerts, entertaining audiences with his witty and energetic music, dance, and choreography. He is also nominated to sing an official cheering song for the London Olympic in 2012, “KOREA”.
2NE1 is a popular K-pop girl-group that debuted in 2009 with YG Entertainment. They claim to be different from other girl groups, bursting onto the electronic music scene as soon as they appeared. Their cutting-edge music and unique fashion style led to collaboration with artists such as Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas and world-famous designer, Jeremy Scott. As the popularity has increased in the world, 2NE1 is planning to hold “2NE1 New Evolution”, their first world-wide tour, which will start in America from August 2012.
