2NE1 Lonely – Kpop Music Mondays

May 30, 2011

What’s up, 2NE1? Your songs are pretty sad as of late. Whatever happened to the bombastic fantastic elastic 2NE1 we originally knew and grew to love? One of our first Kpop Music Mondays we ever reviewed was 2NE1’s “Can’t Nobody,” and we thought that the song was so fun and funky and we wanted to dance and life was beautiful and everything was happy and great…and then we got the video for “It Hurts.” Oh. Kinda sad. And then we got Park Bom’s “Don’t Cry,” which was miserable. And now we get 2NE1’s “Lonely” which is also sad. Why, 2NE1? WHY?!?!

2NE1, do you need a hug? We miss your fun and spunky ways. Tell you what: you should come over to our new apartment. It’ll be fun! We’ve got board games like Cranium and our dog is blue. He likes girls more than guys as well, so he’ll be pretty snuggly with you all. And he’s blue! Maybe, maybe you can even be in one of our videos? We’d have lots of fun! Anyhow, we know you’re probably too busy for that, but, hopefully you’ll soon stop doing sad songs and make us shake our butts some more. 2NE1, FIGHTING!

Back to talking about the video: is it a coincidence that YG’s two latest videos by Big Bang and 2NE1 involve excessive walking through weird scenarios? In Big Bang’s “Love Song” they walk through some scary bizarre exploded gas station supermarket in Europe. Now 2NE1 walk through some bizarre cityscape, and end up in a room where it you see a huge sign for the Lonely Supermarket through the window, the lights constantly flicker, and it snows indoors. P.S. is that the same snow machine from Big Bang’s “Love Song” video? Maybe. P.P.S we’d like to have a snow machine in our apartment. Ohhh the possibilities!

2NE1's Lonely, Flaxton

Flaxton St, from 2NE1's "Lonely"

Another question: where are they? We asked this when we did our review, but we didn’t really go into all of the points. We tried looking at the signs, and this was the cleanest street sign we could get. Anyone know where there is a Flaxton that leads into water? We looked on Google Maps but got bored and couldn’t investigate it any further. We’re starting to feel like these YG walking videos are just grabbing a bunch of stuff from garage sales and putting them in their vids. They give off an ambience and vibe, sure, but the signs can’t be taken literally (or else we’d have to believe that Big Bang’s “Love Song” was filmed close to a cathedral in Prague).

We’ll stop rambling now. Anyhow, yay this was the first Kpop Music Monday we filmed in our new apartment! What do you think so far? We realized that the name of this week’s edition of Music Mondays was a bit bizarre, but we thought it suited the fact that we’re filming in a new location as well. Ah. We’ll put up an apartment tour probably in a couple of weeks or so. We can’t film it this weekend, because we’re going to Japan for a couple of days on the weekend and won’t have a chance to film it before we have to film for our next Kpop Music Mondays.

B2ST Fiction and Fact Album

B2ST Fiction and Fact Album

And now for the winners of our B2ST contest: We decided to give away two copies of B2ST’s new album for our favorite names for B2ST’s dance in Fiction. Thanks for all the submissions, everyone. There were tons of awesome answers, and it was really difficult to read through thousands of entries (uhhhhh) but we decided to stick with Spaghetti Legs by Enni Närvälä on Facebook, and the Procrastination Dance by ItsMaiyaMoo on YouTube. Woohoo! If you are either of these two people please send us an email and we’ll mail you a copy of the album! For those of you who didn’t win, we’d still recommend getting the album by clicking on the picture here. It’s an awesome album, and it ships overseas as well! Yay!

  1. Hey guys check out my entry to 2NE1’s Lonely Cover Contest. This is not something I have ever done, in fact it’s the first video I have ever made let alone uploaded, yikes. Unlike you guys, who make superior videos and are hilarious and incredible. Let me know what you think of my translation of the lyrics. Yay, for first time video … KPop ….. covers … of stuff ..yay!

I love going 85 somewhere lol. Could you imagine? That’s like Speed Racer! And as for the poll that’s so hard but I’m gonna go with Big Bang only cause at the end there’s the cool car that comes crashing out of nowhere.

  12. 2NE1 means … to anyone ????

    6 years ago
    • No, the word 2NE1 actually means “New Evolution of the 21st century”.
      To Anyone is just the name of one of their albums. :)

  13. Ahhhh, Spudgy is SO cute when he is sleeping.  Especially the part where Simon is crying himself to sleep.  

    Martina, that dress is awesome!  So cute!

  18. New Apartment FTW!

    And I was wondering if anyone else noticed the “SLAVES!” posters in the background. So funny! I mean, slaves are not funny. Just the posters about slaves. I mean… oh never mind.

    And Big Bang’s “Love Song”. If only for the last scene which was epic.

    6 years ago
  19. Is Simon, like, sitting in a chair or something? Cause he looks shorter than Martina. I was hoping he didnt have to strecht his legs anymore in the new apartament >< (sorry for bad english)

    6 years ago
  20. Your new apartment looks so spacious! But Simon looks a little disproportional, hahahaha. It looks like Martina is taller than him :p

    6 years ago
  21. Big Bang’s Love Song obviously. Random signs from… Prague? And an exploding vehicle that only half of the band member seem to acknowledge? I guess cool guys don’t look at explosions (I’m looking at you, TOP). 

    6 years ago
  22. 2NE1 had a very interesting set i liked it better than, the post apocalyptic set big bang had, so my vote is 2NE1

    6 years ago
  23. Martina, I love that you have The Road in your hands in the apartment scene. Very fitting. Surprisingly, it’s one of my favorites too (despite the fact that it’s sooo depressing!)

  53. I thought I was the only one who noticed the similarities between BB’s Love Song and 2NE1’s Lonely. Maybe its time for all the fangirls and boys to head on over to the YG Building and send BB and 2NE1 some looove.

  57. finally! i’ve been playing this song [and this song only] on my ipod ever since it came out — i feel like i’m the fifth member already :))))
    hahaha Martina bursting out to the tune of lonely <3

    the showdown:
    this. is. heartbreaking. | so. hard. to. choose o.O
    BUT i'll give my vote to Big Bang | Lonely could have looked more continuous.

    and! congratulations on the new apartment. it looks much more spacious :)
