“GUNPLAEXPO World Tour Japan 2012” will hold an exhibition starting from November 22 through November 25th at Akihabara UDX. It’s been reported that 2NE1‘s Minzyis taking part in this event! [T/N –– GUNPLA is another term for Gundam, and also refers to the practice of building Gundam models. Minzy made one and completely customized the colours. ]
On display in the event will be Minzy’s original coloured Gundam!! As many Blackjacks know Minzy has been an avid collector of Gundam models that she painstakingly puts together. You can see her show off her Gundamn collection in this clip from 2NE1 TV Season 3.
According to the official Gunpla EXPO Japan site, there will be a Gunpla-builder World Cup Competition by Bandai.,which will serve as the main event for this EXPO.
In addition, there will be a special display of the ZETA Gundam, a Merchandise Corner and also a 2012 Gundam Supporters Corner, which will be where Minzy’s Gundam will be displayed at. [Thanks to EROMAKNAE & @6002theMaipyon for this information]
This will serve as Minzy’s first solo event in Japan, we are super excited for her and wish her all the luck. She won’t be completely alone as m-flo’s Taku will also be in attendance. Recall that the girls featured on the last m-flo album and m-flo’s Verbal wrote their first original Japanese single, Scream.
2NE1 is also holding an event for Recochoku users, similar to their Naver events they do in Korea.
