2NE1 just released their “Do You Love Me?” video. Look at them! How could anyone NOT?!
+ K-pop phenoms 2NE1 ask “Do You Love Me?” in their new music video, which features the foursome throwing pool parties with blow-up dolphins, grooving in a club, wielding sparklers, and starting pillow fights.

I got these experiences with these people I’ll never forget, so it’s a fine trade-off for me.” (MTV News)
