2NE1’s Dara to star in «Dr. Mo Clinic» web drama

2NE1’s Dara has bagged her first lead role via a web drama that will air in South Korea and China.

Titled “Dr. Mo Clinic,” the drama centers on two individuals dumped by their lovers minus a proper breakup.

Co-starring with Dara is model-actor Kim Young Kwang. YG Entertainment describes Dara’s character as an “eccentric office worker who hides her face with a puppet mask and her long hair when embarrassed.”

Dara is hoping that the drama will provide her the chance to meet new fans all over the world. “I thought this drama is a very good opportunity for me as I can meet fans around the world on-line through this new genre of web-drama,” she said. She added that her character Lee So Dam is “very interesting as she is so similar to me.”

“Of course, I feel somewhat nervous and burdened, but I will concentrate and work hard,” Dara added.

In 2007, Dara played a supporting role in the Korean drama “The Return of Iljimae,” which starred actor Jung Il-woo. Before joining 2NE1, Dara appeared in dramas and films in the Philippines including “Can This Be Love,” “Super Noypi,” “Krystala” and “Crazy for You.”

“Dr. Mo Clinic” will start airing this March on Naver TV Cast in South Korea and Youku in China. It is directed by Kwon Hyuk Cha (“A Gentleman’s Dignity” and “Master’s Sun”).

K-pop girl group 2NE1 has taken over American television with a recent commercial for Microsoft.

The commercial, entitled “Head to Head,” compares the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 to the Macbook Air, all to a backdrop of 2NE1’s hit song “I Am the Best.”

The commercial has been airing since August, but some of you who have completely given up on American TV for Korean fare may have missed the advertisement at first. The best part of the commercial is that the song remains in its Korean version, proving the power of the Hallyu wave. Watch the commercial in all of its K-pop glory:

If you haven’t seen the music video for the full song, here it is:

This commercial is only the beginning for 2NE1’s American ventures. YG Entertainment recently announced that CL will debut as a solo artist in the U.S. in 2015. She will be working with manager Scooter Baurn, who also manages Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and Psy.
