Forgot to do Fan Art Friday Fortnightly, but I’ll do it over the weekend. Promise!

In the meantime, here’s CL, Minzy, Dara, and Bom of the Korean girl-group 2NE1 with their latest video, “UGLY” . . .

  1. OMG! I love K-pop! I prefer Girls Generation to 2NE1, but I love this song, and I love what they’re doing with the promotion for it. πŸ™‚ Looking forward to another Fan Art Friday. πŸ˜€

  2. ha it’s funny. I was listening to 2NE1 as I came to the blog to do my daily check to see if you posted anything… psychic you are.

  3. Hmm, this was posted on the 13th, was it? *checks calender*

    Wait, it’s the 12th…


  4. I’ve been listening to this song since it first came out, and I’ve come to a sudden realization that this would be a perfect Uglies song. Haha, never know what to expect on this blog XD

  5. I have a pressing question about after September 20: what’s going to happen? I mean, will Scott-La be writing a new series?? Or a followup book to an older series? I NEED ANSWERS!!! And chocolate. Lots of chocolate….

  6. @TheWordMaster: always say yes to choclate, especially when it comes with marzipan. in a cookie. on a super cool platter.

    the end of this video reminds me of the snl skit cool guys don’t look at explosions. or maybe its not snl. whatever. good song tho!

  7. ooo! I <33 2NE1! Almost spilled water all of my screen when I saw 2NE1's ugly on the blog!!

    I was thinking of Uglies series when i heard the song! Can't wait to see the fanart! πŸ˜€

  8. Sorry all…it’s MY chocolate. :}

  9. very strange song, but yet strangely addictive… i like it!
    P.S. im eating chocalate right now suckers! mwahahahahahha!

  10. Interesting, considering the prevalence of plastic surgery among South Korean women. The most reliable stat I’ve seen indicates about 30% of women between 20 and 50 have had a cosmetic surgery, probably including (just because it’s even more popular for girl idols), at least one of the members of 2NE1. Maybe Seoul will be the world’s first Prettytown.

  11. Here’s a video I came across that I thought you might find interesting.

    It’s a preview for this documentary about students in Korea and the societal pressures to succeed in academics and beauty. It gave me chills… “big eyes are beautiful…”

    “In sixty short years, South Korea went from being one of the poorest countries in Asia to having the world’s 13th largest economy. Korean students have some of the highest test scores in the world, and a higher rate of acceptance into American Ivy Leagues than any other foreign country. But Korea also leads the world in two not quite so stunning ways- the highest rate of plastic surgery per capita, and a higher suicide rate than any other developed nation.

    So. What’s life like for a Korean student? In one of the most competitive societies in the world, how does one find their place? What does it take to achieve your aspirations and goals? Our documentary will take a look at the lives of five Korean teenagers on the verge of either reaching- or losing- their dreams. The film will follow the students during the most stressful time of their lives- their last year of high school. After studying for roughly sixteen hours each day, their futures boil down to one last exam. On November 10th, 2011, thousands of high school seniors will take a nine hour test that for many, will determine their economic and social status for the rest of their lives. “
