2NE1 In the US

The ladies of 2NE1 have been attracting some attention lately even before their highly anticipated comeback later this summer. It has been confirmed that the members are currently in the US after having already visited there recently in addition to England and Japan.?

Speculation on the group' whereabouts first started after one of the members, Park Bom, posted up a picture of herself on a bed with a caption, "Guess where I am". Member Sandara Park left two to three days later than the rest of the group due to her filming an appearance on Big Bang's Taeyang's music video off of his first regular solo album.

2NE1's agency, YG Entertainment, is refusing to give any details. They simply said that the girls are preparing for their comeback and that they're somewhere between New York City on the east coast and Los Angeles on the west coast.

The girls of 2NE1 took the kpop world by storm last year, dominating musical charts and music sales. They even had successful solo projects. They have remained pretty inactive for the first half of this year, having spent the time traveling abroad. They also made a special guest appearance at Big Bang's concert in Japan.

Many people have been speculating whether the group will be following in the footsteps of another popular girl group, Wonder Girls, in attempting to break into the US market. The reasons cited were that considering how popular they are, the group has chosen to not participate in commercials, concerts, events, or broadcasting shows to spend their time off the active music scene. Some are asking whether there's any other reason for allowing the girls to simply take full-time off like that and sending them abroad so often?

YG has spoken out on these speculations saying that the girls aren't ready yet to tackle the US market. They added that the most important thing for a singer is their contents. The members of what's arguably Korea's most popular girl group are simply taken plenty of time to thoroughly prepare worthy content for their music.

Whether the girls are indeed just preparing for their comeback in Korea or a breakout venture in the US, nobody knows for sure as of yet. However, one thing is for sure, many are looking forward to the girls' comeback, period.
