2NE1 - Fire

2NE1 is another manufactured pop group from one of South Korea's biggest entertainment companies YG. YG Entertainment also manages Big Bang (who are now branching out into Japan) as well as Se7en, YG is more hip hop oriented than other labels like competitors JYP and SM Town. This song is something I shouldn't like...but I end up listening to a billion times anyway. I'm not sure if I would still enjoy it if I understood Korean or they were singing English...mostly because I'm afraid of how stupid the lyrics actually are. The great thing about Korean pop is if you are a non speaker you never feel too lame listening to it, because if the lyrics are really horrible you have no way of knowing.
