‘Unrivaled girl group’ 2NE1. This is not just their plausible modifier. Since their debut, and for five more years they have been differentiating their music with unique distinguished characters. They are still differentiated from other groups. 2NE1′s weapon is ‘difference’ which is now settled down as their unrivaled competitiveness.
2NE1′s new song ‘Missing You’ is about extreme sorrow. It is not a typical break up song but it is broader. They said the recalled each members when they sang the song.
“I imagined the possibility of parting up with my members. I would miss them if we start doing things apart. In fact, everyone sang the song with same heart. It is not that we are going to stop being a team!(laughs). We had a lot of time to think during the tour last year. I think that time made up feel more special to each other.”(CL)
2NE1 who mainly showed strong intense performance, came back with sad tear shedding new song ‘Missing You’. The music video was even more shocking. Member CL made a bold daring decision to perform naked.
“As soon as I listened to the song, I wanted to play raw. I thought this song did not go out with any clothes. I wanted to express the ‘ra image’ so I first offered to perform naked in the video. I could not have done it if someone asked me to. I did not feel uncomfortable since I knew this goes well with the song.”(CL)
“CL said lets go all nude together. We were appalled. We all refused so she did it by herself. When we saw the video, it was amazing.”(Park Bom)
She even made her members’ startled. But her choice eventually created a artistic outcome. The video was lauded by Billboard which said “CL has does the sad and naked with more classic than Miley Cirus ‘Wrecking Ball’”
“We were really surprised. I thought she was so cool to go naked for our video. Her art spirit was amazing. I did not have any desire for naked performance since I have the youngest image.”(Minzy)
This was a big issue even inside the YG Entertainment and Yang Hyun-suk.
“He said nothing much. I remember him saying ‘I will let her go naked since she wants to but I am a little worried.’ after watching the outcome Yang Hyun-suk and YG family all said ‘Thank god it came out well. We were so worried.’ I guess it was a big issue in YG. Many must have been worried.”(CL)
The song ‘Missing You’ is the third single this year after ‘Falling in love’ and ‘Do you love me’. In the beginning of the year they planed on releasing each song every month from July to October. Actually it did not turn out as they planned.
“We tried to comeback with regular album. This is why it took so long. But we just came out with ‘Missing You’ because we wanted to share the song fast. Also due to the timing and weather. Regular album? There are already many songs. We did not want to rush anything. Instead we wanted to come out with perfect high quality songs.”(CL)
Previously 2NE1 already garnered attention with their comeback time overlapping with YG Family musicians. Again, their comeback will be overlapping with Taeyang and TOP who are already in promotion. Instead of looking uncomfortable they seem to look happy.
“We are really close with Young-bae(Taeyang). We don’t know many celebrities since we don’t regularly come out. We are happy to see our family musician. It is not boring to work together.”(CL)
“If our promotion overlap I feel more excited. When we are active in promotion, sometime I feel tired, sick, sleepy but still..alive.”(Dara Park)
Park Bom and Dara Park playfully confessed that they have no development in their love life although they earned their freedom to date. When they said about music, they soon became serious right away. When they were asked about their future goals and plans they focused on their simple not far away plans.
“For now, our goal is to release our regular album. We will be dropping our regular album before our world tour next year. We don”t want to become meaningless top chart singers. Instead we would like to inspire and effect others with our song.”(CL)

2NE1 recently congratulated YG Entertainment’s biggest producer Teddy on his recently publicized relationship with actress Han Ye Seul.
On November 25, the news of Teddy and Han Ye Seul dating broke and drew much public interest. According to reports, the couple began dating six months ago.
On the same day, 2NE1 was being interviewed at a local pub and asked if they knew beforehand that their producer Teddy was dating someone. “We had no idea,” they confessed.
“We see Teddy when he’s at work in the studio, but since we like to joke around a lot – he’s more like an older brother to us. Once we heard the news, we were really surprised. There was nothing different about the way he acted around us. Even while we were working on our music video, he looked over all the details, including our clothes, and didn’t seem the slightest bit different. So hearing that he was dating someone was sort of a surprise,” saidCL. The members then clapped and congratulated Teddy on his new relationship.
When asked about their own personal lives, CL replied, “I don’t have a love life. I really do want to date.” She then asked the other members, “If you had a boyfriend, would you want to tell everyone?”
Park Bom responded by saying, “I think it’s because of CEO Yang Hyun Suk that there haven’t been any guys. They might be intimidated because of our stardom, since they hardly ever try to approach us.”
Sandara Park chimed in, “It’s been a long time since Yang Hyun Suk lifted the dating ban, but I still haven’t found a boyfriend yet – so it’s even more depressing.”
CL added, “Minzy and I are still under the dating ban, but saw that nothing happened when the unnies were finally free to date. I thought, ‘Ah…I guess even if you’re free to date, nothing really happens either,’” causing everyone to laugh.
Our girls looked really wonderful and awesome in their first stage for Missing You! I love the camera work in this performance, very beautifully taken angles and shots! Kudos to the Inkigayo team! <3
