Quick info on Korean group names!


Since i see most of you are confuse with the name 21. A little justification.

YG Ladies Group 21 {투 애니 원 prounounced as To Anyone} English name is 2NE1

Like any other korean groups, they do have short names as well. For instance:

: ss501 {stands for Superstar and unison of its 5 members until eternity (symbolized by the 0) as 1}

: 1TYM {원타임 pronounced One Time  , stands for One Time (for) your  mind}

: H.O.T {stands for High-five Of Teenagers}

: NRG {stands for New Radiancy Group}

: U-Kiss {유키스, stands for Ubiquitous Korean International (idol) Super Star}

: Baby VOX {베이비복스, stands for Baby Voices of Xpression}

: S.E.S {stands for Sea/Bada, Eugene, Shoo}

: Fin.K.L {(핑클, stands for Fine Killing Liberty}

I hope you understand what i am trying to explain here.

Each group name represents different meaning and interpretation that differs from one another. 

With that, regardless if YG Ladies Group pronounced as 21 literally or To Anyone 2NE1 its still from a same group with its own meaning and style.

  3. ohhhhh i get it (:

  4. but I thought the (to anyone) thing wasnt for the new 21 group but supposedly for some other singer they said who went by “21”.

  5. @ chrissy: yes and about the other singer with the same name its true as well. However, what we can do now, just wait till they debut, coz President YG isnt saying anything about the issue as of yet.
