News: 2NE1 Might Come Back… 4 Big Reasons to Expect 2NE1′s Comeback Despite YG’s Efforts to Keep it Secret

2NE1 might come back… 4 big reasons to expect 2NE1′s comeback despite YG’s efforts to keep it secret


[스타뉴스=길혜성 기자] A team who has the record of the  highest-ever ranking (61st) on Billboard 200, American Billboard’s main albums chart, for any Korean singer, whether it is team or solo, man or woman. A team who has an impressive melody line which even people in their 30s and 40s can easily sing along, which is not a usual case among Korea’s girl groups. A team who can best-express both ballad and dance music. A team who proved that a girl group can be successful for the quality of their music and performance, not just for their good look. A team who has numerous hits such as “FIRE”, “I DON’T CARE”, “I’M THE BEST”, “GO AWAY”, “LONELY”, “UGLY”, “CAN’T NOBODY”, “IN THE CLUB”, “I LOVE YOU”, “CLAP YOUR HANDS”, “HATE YOU”, “GOTTA BE YOU”, “MTBD”, “IF I WERE YOU”, and “COME BACK HOME”. These are words that describe 2NE1, a girl group of four members: CL, DARA, BOM, and MINZY.

2NE1 enjoyed big popularity in and out of the country with their intense and unique style since their debut in spring, 2009. However, after releasing second full-length album “CRUSH” that took the 61st place on American Billboard’s Billboard 200 chart, they have been absent from the music scene for one year and nine months. After the release of album “CRUSH” with title track of “COME BACK HOME”, CL has been preparing for her solo debut in the United States and DARA has concentrated on acting and MCing. MINZY continued with her education and began a dance studio business. BOM has had some time for self-reflection, after an incident that took place last year.

Meanwhile, news that hints on 2NE1′s comeback after a long time of absence has recently been released. 2NE1′s label YG Entertainment posted a teaser image with words “WHO’S NEXT?” and “Nov. 21, 2015, 21:00″ on the company’s official blog YG LIFE, on the 9 this month. The teaser image for the artist to release a new song on the 21 this month at 21 o’clock is repeatedly showing the number 21 which is deeply related with 2NE1. So, music industry insiders and fans are speculating that the team to come back on the day at that time is highly likely to be 2NE1.

YG is keeping secret about 2NE1′s plans, after the release of the teaser. However, as there are four big reasons to think that it is 2NE1 who is coming back this time, music fans are now paying keen attention to whether 2NE1 will really release a new song after their one year and nine months of absence.

The biggest hint is the teaser image proudly unveiled by YG. As YG is famous for its unique way of promotion, the teaser image with the number of “21″ suggests a high possibility of connection with 2NE1.

The second hint is related with YG’s main producer TEDDY. TEDDY has worked with 2NE1 since the team’s debut and worked like the mentor for 2NE1 members, creating a lot of hit songs of 2NE1. Recently, TEDDY announced that he is establishing a new label of YG with KUSH, which means, 2NE1 might release a new album not through YG itself but through TEDDY’s new label which is a kind of YG’s branch. As for YG, many artists such as iKON, WINNER, and PSY are waiting for their comeback. Thus, it is also good for YG to release 2NE1′s new song through TEDDY’s label. As such, the establishment of TEDDY’s new label has raised the possibility of 2NE1′s new release both for YG and 2NE1.

The fact that CL has yet to begin her solo career in the States is another reason to believe that 2NE1 is coming back. CL, the leader of 2NE1 who is recognized as one of the best female idol singers in Korea, has practically finished preparations for her solo debut in the States. Indeed, the news of CL’s solo debut album release in the States was released in this fall. However, as she has postponed the time of her solo album release in the country, some music industry insiders have speculated that there might be a secret project for 2NE1′s comeback underway. That is a sufficient reason to think that 2NE1 is highly likely to release a new song this month.

The last reason is YG’s remark in the past. In this summer, YG unintentionally said to OSEN about a media outlet’s speculation over 2NE1′s dissolution, “That is a groundless rumor. 2NE1 even has a plan to release a new song within this year”.

As such, there are a series of reasons to believe that 2NE1 is coming back soon. Of course, it might not be 2NE1 who will release a new song on the 21 at 21 o’clock. However, the possibility of comeback of 2NE1 who has both original style and popular appeal is making music fans happy.

News: 2NE1 Wins PopCrush’s 2015 Battle of the Bands ~ Congratulations Blackjacks!

2NE1 Wins PopCrush’s 2015 Battle of the Bands

After weeks of tireless voting and relentless social media campaigns, the winner of PopCrush’s Battle of the Bands has been crowned: Congratulations to K-Pop quartet 2NE1!

Let’s take a look back at their journey to the top, shall we?

2NE1 first faced off against fellow K-Pop group, Girls Generation, who proved to be formidable contenders. And while it was a tough race between the two, 2NE1 ultimately pulled through at the end, earning 50.78% of the votes, resulting in one of the closest margins throughout the length of this competition.

2NE1 were then thrown into the arena with X Factor-formed U.S. girl group Fifth Harmony. And while Fifth Harmony have their fair share of vocal and dedicated fans, they proved to be no match for 2NE1, who came out strong with 74.75% of votes.

Finally, 2NE1 faced off against One Direction, perhaps their toughest competition throughout our extensive Battle of the Bands competition. Both groups are known for their fervent fan bases, and a winner was never clear cut, as both groups inched past each other throughout the week.

But in the end, only one group could be crowned the winner, because that’s how polls work. And 2NE1 managed to surpass One Direction with 50.1% of votes (so close!), ultimately earning them the PopCrush Crown and all the prestige that comes with it.

So congratulations to 2NE1, and congratulations to all you fans who did the hard work. Your dedication, perseverance and constant page-refreshing helped earn your faves the title of Best Band!

News: YG Life~ “Fans are Missing 2NE1 for Hot Summer Season of Girl Groups, YG’s Response ‘Yes'”

Fans are missing 2NE1 for hot summer season of girl groups, YG’s response “Yes”


[스타뉴스=길혜성 기자] This summer stages literally a battle field of Korean girl groups. The season is crowded with hottest girl groups’ come-back such as GIRL’S GENERATION, SISTAR, GIRL’S DAY, APINK, MAMAMOO, 9MUSES, AOA, MINX, STELLAR, SONAMOO, HELLOVENUS. WONDER GIRLS and GFRIEND will soon join the scene.

Each group, true to form, marks a great score on music charts and shows. It cannot possibly be more entertaining for fans.

However, one top girl group, much awaited, is missing: 2NE1 with CL, DARA, BOM and MINZY.

Since their debut hit single “Fire” in 2009, the group has left countless hit songs such as “I Don’t Care,” “I Am The Best,” “Go Away,” “Lonely,” “Ugly,” “Can’t Nobody,” “In The Club,” “I Love You,” “Clap Your Hands,” “Hate You,” “Gotta Be You,” “MTBD,” “If I Were You,” and “Come Back Home” by 2014. 2NE1, born as a hip hop group, covers a wide range of genre such as pop-dance, ballad, electronic, and rock with Teddy, their mentor and one of YG Entertainment’s main producers.

Being a girl group, they also perform songs easy on the ear of those over 30 as their songs are mostly melodic pops.

The group’s performance is also charismatic when they perform on the stage with “Fire” or “I Am The Best,” exuding charm of “strong and independent woman.” They set the tone of their own.

“CRUSH,” the album released last February, is also benefited from the band’s strength as it still maintains the record of ranking 61 on Billboard 200, U.S. main album chart, the highest feat ever for Korean male and female singers combined.

It has been 17 months that the group has not released any new song due to various reasons such as the members’ individual schedule. However, they are still very much missed by fans who recently made a SNS page dedicated to BOM to upload her recent photos.

Starnews asked YG Entertainment about the group’s comeback to which the company responded that they are positively considering presenting a new song by next year at latest.

2NE1, uniquely positioned with their distinctive color, would surely enrich the music scene this summer only if they joined it. This is why we are longing for their return.

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


[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.
