A billboard starring 2NE1 has been spotted recently in Sacramento, the capital city of California. Several K-Pop fans have reported sighting the large advertisement and were surprised that there would be a public display of a K-Pop artist in a city not as well-known internationally as Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City, and Seattle.
Located near a Starbucks on a busy intersection, the billboard stands out with its bright green and pink colors. The image of 2NE1 from their “I Don’t Care” era is used for Mnet’s advertisement for their channel on Comcast’s Xfinity TV. According to Comcast California, Mnet America began airing on July 27th. The 24/7 English channel airs programs such as series, MVs, movies, anime, sports, and more. It makes sense that Mnet would use 2NE1’s face as they broadcast their reality show “2NE1TV” on the channel.
For those interested in viewing the billboard, it can be found by the intersection of Sutterville Road and Freeport Boulevard in Sacramento.
