2NE1 vs. Girls’ Generation — PopCrush Battle Of The Bands (Round One)
When it comes to K-Pop dominance, no two acts manage generate quite as much feverish, shaking and crying fandom as Girls' Generation and 2NE1.
The two mega-popular groups have managed to carve out names for themselves not only in South Korea, but in several other territories as well, including Japan and China — even the United States. (In fact, Girls' Generation is the first-ever girl group to have two number one records in Japan.)
Girls' Generation, eight-piece troupe (formerly nine - gone but not forgotten, Jessica!), has amassed an incredible following with their sleek choreography and a discography of international pop hits, including "Run Devil Run," "Mr. Taxi," "I Got A Boy" and "Party."
2NE1, on the other hand, has garnered an incredible amount of attention for their futuristic, forward-thinking style and genre-blurring smashes like "I Am The Best," "Ugly," "I Love You" and "Come Back Home." Not only that, they officially have the best-selling K-Pop album in America (Crush), and member CL is now setting her sights on a total US takeover.
