Dara talks about her experience of Japan’s earthquake

Around the world, people are being shocked and saddened by the earthquake and tsunamis that have hit Japan.

2ne1 members were also in Japan during the 8.9-magnitude earthquake on March 11th. Dara and the others were at the hotel at that time, preparing for a fan signing event at the hotel.

She said:

“At the time of the earthquake, we were on the 34th floor of our hotel dorm in Tokyo. Maybe it’s because we were higher up, but things shook a lot more severely, which surprised us all. I felt like I was going to fly out of my body. Even during the plane ride home, I couldn’t calm myself, and thinking about it now still scares me.

“After the shaking stopped, we walked from the 34th floor all the way down to the first and relocated to a safer location. There were many things to worry about, including our Japanese fans that were waiting for us in front of the hotel during the time of the actual earthquake.

“All of us were very shocked, but we were more worried for the safety of the Japanese people. I genuinely hope that everyone made it out of the disaster safely and that it doesn’t become worse.”

Every member of 2ne1 is safe now and have returned to Seoul, Korea.

Along with many Korean entertainers, let’s all pray for Japan. They really need our help now. The Japanese prime minister announced the earthquake as the greatest disaster to Japan since World War II. POPSEOUL staff sends out our sympathies for all the families affected by this catastrophe, and we hope for the safety of the Japanese people as after shocks continue throughout the area.

    Can’t really imagine how terrifying it is at 34th floor of that hotel during earthquake. Although in Japan buildings seldom collapse during earthquake because of the materials they use in the structure.

    What is much more fatal is the tsunami that is expected to follow. That’s why for safety purpose it is advisable to avoid places located near the shore right after an earthquake. But the death toll, which could be more than 1,000 body counts, shows that a lot of people didn’t have the time to prepare.

      agree. And for those who don’t pray, please think of good thoughts for the people in Japan.

        Once when I was in Korea a Korean person told me that the earthquakes in Korea were caused by Japanese people…. I really couldn’t figure that one out.
