Before they tore the roof off at the MTV Iggy Best New Bands concert, K-pop sensations 2NE1 took Manhattan in the same way they perform — with incomparable style! We got the inside scoop on the girls’s first-ever trip to New York city and we caught the highlights on film.

The group stayed at the très chic W Hotel in Times Square and made time for shopping excursions in SoHo during their six-day stay — including a jaunt with their fabulous fashion designer friend Jeremy Scott. Another high priority destination was Shake Shack. Known to some as “the In-N-Out Burger of the East Coast,” the quartet wasn’t about to miss out on this unique American food experience.

MTV K was lucky enough to tag along with Bom, Dara, CL, and Minzy, first, on their jaunt through Central Park, which included a pilgrimage to the John Lennon memorial Strawberry Fields, and, later, as they shopped for board games and hit the Muppet Whatnot Workshop at the iconic FAO Schwarz Toys.

On Sunday, they took in the breathtaking views from the penthouse of Mondrian Hotel during a very edgy photo shoot.

Watch the footage from their adventures. They had so much fun!

You know all about their pre-game, now see them show the world how it’s done.
