In November of 2011 Korean girl group 2NE1 was named the Best New Band in the World by Viacom’s MTV Iggy. To inaugurate their new-found title, the group headlined at the “Best New Band in the World Concert” in New York City. Due to the generosity of a winning recipient of tickets, I luckily got to attend as a guest and watch the concert from the front row. After waiting though the opening acts, I welcomed hearing the intro to “내가 제일 잘 나가!”. As the girls took to the stage they commanded a presence in their military inspired outfits by designer Jeremy Scott.
