2NE1. (YG Entertainment)
Top K-pop girl group 2NE1 released music videos for their popular title tracks “Come Back Home” and “Happy” on its official YouTube channel and YG’s blog on Monday, receiving thousands of hits, likes and comments within minutes.
The music video for “Come Back Home” is set in an undefined future, where people escape to a world of virtual reality. Once “plugged in,” they experience psychedelic effects as euphoric colors and odd images warp into an endless cosmos. The four girls eventually set fire to the whole system, telling loved ones to “come back home.”
In the music video for “Happy,” the four girls in colorful outfits and accessories stroll through an empty neighborhood. Parts of the lyrics and sticker-like images decorate the video, adding to the pleasant mood of the song.
2NE1 delivered two kickoff concerts in Seoul on March 1-2, and will go on the AON (All Or Nothing) global tour of several Asian countries over the next few months.
Meanwhile, 2NE1 will stage their first comeback performance with the new album “Crush” on SBS’ flagship pop chart program “Inkigayo” on March 9.
