    Hello,

    How are you? My name is Rudy Ford (Rudy) I live in California, U.S.A. in the San Francisco area, i am a male who really does like 2NE1, and has since their debut in 2011 as far as I am concerned they are as good as T-ARA, The Brown Eyed Girls, and Girls Generation. I give thanks to Will. I . Am for producing their album. I can tell when he is performing that he is fun to work with, so I agree with 2NE1 when they say that about him. If 2NE1 ever come to my area I will pay to see, and hear them perform. I love KPOP, watch it every day, and night, not all day, and not all night maybe six or seven hours in a twenty four hour period. Bye bye.

    Sincerely,

    Rudy
