[NEWS] SM’s rookies “f(x)” is a declaration of war against YG’s 2NE1

It's going to be another war between YG and SM.Let's wait and see who will turn out to be the winner ...

Although 2NE1 only debuted a few months before F(x),they seemed to be very experienced to me..Anyway,i have not seen F(x) performing,wish them all the best!

The battle of the girl groups this year is just getting more and more interesting.

f(x)’s presence has become a declaration of war against this summer’s reigning rookie group, 2NE1.

On August 24th, via Youtube and SM’s broadcast, SM Entertainment revealed new five-girl group f(x)’s debut music video “Lachata” teasers.

f(x) is a girl group that consists of group members Victoria, Amber, Sulli, Luna, and Krystal. This time, SM Entertainment’s goal is not only Korea, but also all of Asia and perhaps even the whole world’s entertainment industry, by preparing long and hard for a global, international girl group. According to SM spokespeople, f(x) will be performing powerful dance moves and songs.

This produces a “powerful” image for the girl group, which discards the old “cute” girl band image, thus becoming a formidable rival for successful girl group 2NE1. SM Entertainment has come out with a statement, saying that through the “powerful” group rivalry, f(x) will gain more popularity.

What’s interesting is that both groups have been through long periods of time as trainees, and are both elegant and have long histories. 2NE1’s Sandara Park was a teenage star in the Philippines, who later returned to Korea to become a member. Gong Minji, stage name Minzy, has also raised a lot of attention, and Park Bom and CL, also YGE trainees, have become celebrities.

f(x) also has impressive history. Krystal, SNSD’s Jessica’s younger sister, has already been a hot topic among netizens. Victoria, a natural born Chinese citizen, has been through various interviews and auditions in China in order to be accepted into SM Entertainment. Sulli has also been a child actress since she was young.

What’s more interesting about the rivalry between 2NE1 and f(x) is the competition between the pride of their two management companies. 2NE1’s company, YG Entertainment, and f(x)’s company, SM Entertainment, are traditional rival entertainment companies when it comes to idol groups. Also, being the management companies for the two largest national bands, DBSK and Big Bang, the competition has now been transferred to the two girl groups.

Judging from the aforementioned points, in the future there should be growing tensions between the rival groups.

    i hope that f(x) will be better than 2ne1
    not because i don't like 2ne1 but because 2ne1 is a great group and to see a greater group would be awesome! :D

  3. I dont think another group can defeat the achievements and popularity 2ne1 has made in the first 100 days of their debut... okay... f(x) will be debuting etc... but... 2ne1 will be promoting more songs and releasing full album! yeah!!!!! LOVE 2ne1!!!!

    no other girl group is this good! although f(x) is claimed to be the female SHINee, i don't think they will be able to touch 2ne1!!

    I don't like f(x), their trailer? nah. Not comparable to 2ne1's! No other group can defeat 2ne1. f(x) are just like the same with snsd. They'll never be the "threat" to 2ne1. I love 2ne1!

    I think 2n1e is burning the popularity process. If you burned and are hot already. It will come to no more interest. The popularity and recognition need to accumulate, time by time. Not burn process. I understand why 2n1e gain more popularity, but it will not be recognize and received love from all class like snsd. snsd, they show talented charm, mom, nice personality. they can mimic, be model, be actor... Love snsd. f(x) will be in the same way

    snsd is a multi talented 'bibimpap' group haha not saying that 2ne1 isnt tho. i love em both and seriously you ppl are fuckin crazy for trying to make these groups enemies... u cant compare 2ne1 to snsd since its like 5 to 9 rofl and their music styles and genre's are different XD plus (f)x's 'lachata' sounds jazz-ish which is very different from 2ne1. since we know they rock rnB. either way im really anticipating (f)x and i cant wait to support em since well.. fuckin DUHHH have you seen the members??? krystal is smokin! so is victoria and that 'suli' chick! bwahaha i got the hots for most of em already. except amber tho... but i think its freakin cool that they have a tomboy whahah XD

    f(x), honestly, its lyk comparing a candle to the sun... f(x) seems lyk lost in the equation... it just shows that when your the best, some entity is bound to put you down(to no avail)... I luv 2ne1... I even think 4minute is better than f(x).. haha,..

  19. when i was just new to kpop.. i LOVED sm's artists' and a huge fan of suju n snsd(not as big as suju)..but then..i got a bit bored with them as listen to it always..A.L.W.A.Y.S..so i tried big bang n i really really really like big bang and then BOOM!! i'm in love in YG's artists'..2ne1 is cool~~~(still love suju,dont worry=3)

    we'll see how f(x) perform wont we??they look really different from sm's usual cute image..thts why i'm curious bout their music.
