We know how close the 2NE1 girls are to each other, especially Park Sisters/Double Park, Sandara and Bom. We feel that it is a prudent and right to post YG’s official letter regarding Bom here on OhDara, even though it isn’t directly related to Sandara Park. I hope all our readers support Park Bom as well. She is an essential part of 2NE1, the main vocal who makes 2NE1 the group we know and love now. 2NE1 won’t be 2NE1 without Park Bom, without Lee Chaerin, without Gong Minzy, without Sandara Park. OhDara and WeLoveDara support Park Bom in this. We love fiercely and passionately, but not blindly. The facts are all laid out, all we have to do is to CHOOSE to believe. And we choose to believe in Bom, in 2NE1, in YG Family. Fighting!
Dear readers, this is Yang Hyun Suk.
I am here to give you a brief explanation of the misunderstandings that surfaced last night.
Why is Yang explaining this in writing, instead of announcing the agency’s official stance?
I would like to point out the articles refer to the incident that occurred 4 years ago.
Back then, BOM’s parents paid a private visit to inform me her family had been investigated due to the incident,
And revealed to me for the first time, in private, a shocking incident BOM experienced
in the past along with her medical history.
So until the articles were published, neither YG members nor the members of 2NE1 had the knowledge about the incident.
Thus I thought it was right to explain the incident myself,
as I personally heard the story,
Rather than making an official announcement by the agency that was not informed of the incident earlier.
As the Executive Producer, what are your thoughts on the incident?
I have seen 2NE1 for 9 years since they were trainees.
The last 9 years we spent together tells me that
none of the members smoke… nor do they drink much…
Apart from official events, I have never even seen them go clubbing in private.
That is my knowledge, and I have never heard rumors on these issues either.
And the articles turned BOM, whom I knew for 9 years, into a “drug smuggler” overnight.
I am left aghast and am at a complete loss for words.
Do I need to give an explanation to something that does not make sense? Would that create more trouble?
I had to give it a lot of thought before I reached a conclusion.
For the fans cheering on for 2NE1, who are now in the middle of their World Tour…
And for BOM, who is like a sister to me, who is now labeled a “drug smuggler” overnight,
I could do more than just watch these things happen to her.
