2NE1 brings the East to the West. The four-member K-pop group has arrived in the U.S. hoping to achieve the same level of success already found in their native country of South Korea. And their popularity, they say, is just the tip of the ice berg. SOUNDBITE: Bom, 2NE1, saying (Korean): "I don't think that we made it all the way yet. We want to continue improving to bring you better music." The group -- made up of CL, Minzy, Dara and Bom -- spoke just days after they performed their first American concert. Still buzzing from the experience, Dara said they were overwhelmed by the energy of their fans. SOUNDBITE: Dara, 2NE1, saying (Korean): "I think our fans are alike, no matter where we go. Especially those who come to our concerts, they jump along and enjoy with us so we have a good time wherever we go." The trip to the U.S. has given the band a chance to escape the constant throng of fans back home...and even take in some fun in the sun. SOUNDBITE: CL, 2NE1, saying (Korean): "We don't have much opportunity to walk outside so we walked around a lot and got a tan. So we had a great time here." 2NE1 will continue their U.S. tour with a show in Los Angeles, California.
