This is the second time that 2NE1 will be appearing on an American reality TV show after being featured in an episode of ABC’s
“The Bachelor.”
For “America’s Next Top Model,” 2NE1 will appear as guests at a fashion show for the season finale, which will be filmed on April 2 around the Banpo park area.
BTOB, on the other hand, will serve as judges. Their participation was filmed last March 22 in Sinchon.
As part of the episode, the contestants were made to dance to BTOB’s “Beep Beep,” the title track of the boy band’s new mini album released last month.
Banks, fellow judges Kelly Cutrone and J. Alexander, the model contestants and the crew arrived in Seoul on March 21, just in time for Seoul Fashion Week.
“My Boy #Boochers and Girl #Toochers are Smizing in Seoul, South Korea for #ANTM21! We LOVE it here!” tweeted Banks.
J. Alexander posted a photo of him and BTOB on Twitter and declared, “I’m now the New K .pop Boy band member of ‘B2B.’”
The cast and crew of “America’s Next Top Model” is reportedly staying in South Korea for at least two weeks to shoot five episodes for the show.
Among places they will be visiting are Seoul City Hall, Gyeongbok Palace and Gwanghwamun Square.
2NE1 was recently in Hong Kong for their All or Nothing World Tour. They will be in Manila on May 17.
