News: YG Life – “Why the Rumors on 2NE1 Break-Up? Anticipation Up for Comeback”

Why the Rumors on 2NE1 Break-Up? Anticipation Up for Comeback

6ddaa6579e7fb9775918f7a23d103c40

[TV리포트=김예나 기자] Rumors for the break-up of 2NE1 have surfaced. This is the second time since October last year.

As the rumor resurfaced this afternoon, YG Entertainment commented on June 6 that there is no truth to it. The comment was made one hour after the rumor-related article was published.

YG Entertainment initially responded to this by saying that “the rumor is not even worth responding to,” avoiding an immediate and direct comment. This made many believe that the rumor was true.

After much hype, YANG HYUN SUK and personnel from YG Entertainment strongly rejected it by saying, “There is absolutely no truth to the breakup rumors of 2NE1. This is not even worth responding to. We don’t understand where this is coming from. 2NE1 will be back with a new album this year.

This is the second time following the one in October. The rumors were triggered by MINZY deleting her social media accounts and also making an account private. She changed her account name from “minzy21mz” to “minzy_mz”, deleting the “21,” and also changing her introduction to “official 2NE1 minzy” to “official minzy”, again eliminating “2NE1.” When the rumors spread quickly, MINZY changed her Instagram setting from public to private, and retrieved her original ID.

YANG back then commented, “The breakup is not true. BOM is still reflecting on her action and other members are preparing some solos. 2NE1 will come back with a good album.”

But the rumor surfaced once again in June. This time the rumor apparently spread from one personnel from YG. CL goes to the US, DARA will be doing some acting, while MINZY and BOM have no plans yet.

It has already been a year since 2NE1 halted all activities in South Korea. BOM was victimized for the suspicion of drug smuggling last June and she is still reflecting on her action. 2NE1 are carrying out musical activities overseas, and only a limited number of members appear on official stage.

The rumors seem to have resurfaced as there was no imminent comeback for the four divas. They also seem to have been backed up by the fact that 2NE1 did not appear in the recent party of YANG’s launch of the restaurant the “3rd Street Butchers.”

However, YG stepped up once again to reject the rumors. They even hinted a comeback this year. With the rumors resurfacing, it in turn heightens the expectations for the divas’ comeback.
