2NE1's To Anyone Album: A Look Inside!

I received a few emails awhile back asking me if I could do posts on the k-pop albums I buy, and of course, I am more than happy to oblige! I hope these posts will encourage you to get a copy of their album as a sign of support for the artist.

For those who don't know, the Korean music industry puts a lot of effort into creating their albums--especially for the packaging! I don't have any Korean album that isn't elaborate and makes me go "wooooow so worth it!" just on the packaging alone.

So, without further ado, here's 2NE1's To Anyone album:

For Filipinos, 2NE1 is the girl group which Sandara Park is a part of.
2NE1 was the first Korean girl group I ever liked (first k-pop artists I liked? HAS TO BE RAAAAIN!), which is why I make it a point to always buy their albums. On to the contents!
Doesn't that CD design make you go ooooh and aaaaah?

A close-up of that CD: 

There's a YG Family Card included inside (got Dara):
And the photobook together with the album (I only took a few shots of what's inside, there are MORE photos inside):
 Minzy looking extra tough
 CL-roo looking stylish as always--look at those shoes!
 Very cute idea of YG in having the girls write the lyrics to their songs in their own handwriting!
 That jacket on Dara is love!
 Bommie-unnie with her red locks
End of the photobook! Those lightning bolt tops are sooo cute!

My album also came with 2 posters that you could get for an additional 1,000won.

Music-wise, I have to admit I enjoyed listening to their first mini-album more. I found that most songs had a lot of auto-tuning done, not necessarily a turn off for me, but it was definitely different than their usual sound. It seems like the theme of the songs were also an extension from their first mini-album. But I liked the fact that they added the solo singles they released prior to this album.

You can purchase 2NE1's To Anyone album over at GMarket through this seller 파워뮤직 or YesAsia for $17.99.
