RANGOON— Burmese K-Pop fans will get their first-ever chance to see South Korea’s 2NE1 on Saturday, as the girl group is set to perform at Rangoon’s Myanmar Event Park.
The four-member all-girl group arrived at Rangoon International Airport on Thursday night and held a press conference on Friday.
“We are very excited to meet you guys. We wouldn’t be here without you guys,” said CL, who sings in the group alongside bandmates Dara, Minzy and Bom. “So, I thank all from the bottom of our heart and we love you all.”
The concert will start at 7pm. Tickets start at 25, 000 kyat ($25), but the best seats in
the house will go for 900, 000 kyat ($900), with a chance to have dinner with 2NE1’s members included for those willing to pay the hefty price. The event, titled “2NE1 in Myanmar Galaxy Stage,” is organized by Samsung Myanmar in collaboration with Living Sound Entertainment and YG Entertainment from Korea.
“Burmese fans welcomed us warmly at the airport last night. I expect during tomorrow’s concert fans will welcome us warmly too,” Dara told reporters.
Tickets to see the group are available at City Mart supermarkets, Ocean supermarkets, and Taw Win Center in Rangoon, Diamond Plaza in Mandalay, or by calling 1876.
