– WINNER to become a four-member group

– Signed contracts with CL and DARA as solo artists

The following is the official announcement of YG Entertainment on WINNER’s NAM TAE HYUN and 2NE1.

– WINNER’s NAM TAE HYUN 

WINNER was to make a comeback this year. Unfortunately, due to NAM TAE HYUN’s mental issues, WINNER has been on a break for several months now.

YG and the rest of WINNER members considered NAM TAE HYUN’s health as the no.1 priority and were waiting for him to get well.

However, after consulting with NAM TAE HYUN on the matter, YG decided that he could no longer be part of the group as he has been suffering from mental illnesses since he was a child and it is hard to predict when he can recover. YG hereby announces that its management contract with NAM TAE HYUN is terminated as of November 18.

YG made such a decision because NAM TAE HYUN felt a lot of pressure thinking that he is a burden to the group and because WINNER, a group that debuted only two years ago, should not be held back any longer.

Although NAM TAE HYUN is no longer a member of the team, YG hopes that NAM TAE HYUN and the rest of WINNER members will remain as fellow artists and support each other.

There will not be any new members joining the group, and YG will get WINNER ready to start again as a four member group. YG would like to ask for your support for the new four-member WINNER and NAM TAE HYUN.

– Official Disbandment of 2NE1 

YG’s contract with 2NE1 ended in May 2016, and MINZI decided to leave the group. After much consultation with rest of the members, YG has decided to officially disband 2NE1.

2NE1 has been YG’s signature girl group for the past seven years, so YG is deeply saddened to let them go. However, it is better for 2NE1 members to continue on with their careers as solo artists rather than as a group.

YG would like to thank all those in and out of Korea who have loved 2NE1 members and music.

YG hereby announces that it signed a management contract with CL and DARA as solo artists after May but did not renew its contract with BOM.

The above is an official announcement made by YG Entertainment.

2016. 11. 25.


A/N: I know most of us are still quite heartbroken about this announcement.. In fact, until now my heart still hurts about the disbandment of 2NE1. It is with a heavy heart and weary soul that I post this announcement. However, we would like to assure our followers that Oh-Dara will continue to support and update about Dara. Thank you for your continued love and support for all these years. We hope to spend more years with all of you, supporting our one and only Sandara Park. Thank you. – Belle

  1. if there is no longer a 21dara then dara should seriously consider scouting for another agency. i know she just re-signed a contract with them but still, a more competent agency can buy that contract with yg and then we can all say “good riddance!”. an agency that will give dara decent acting jobs among others. i just want dara to get the kind of respect that she deserves from the industry that she loves

  2. same with me k pop is not the same anymore with out 2NE1, THEY ARE THE ONLY K POP GIRL GROUP I LOVE TO WATCH AND FOLLOW EVERY DAY THEY WERE MY STRESS RELIEVER.i’M REALLY SAD . I HOPE THEY WILL STILL CONTINUE TO BE IN THE LIMELIGHT EVEN INDIVIDUALLY.bE STRONG BLACKJACKS AND 2NE1 ESPECIALLY BOM KEEP ON SINGING I MISS YOUR VOICE AND SWEETNESS.

  3. First of all thank you Belle and your staff for all that you do for Dara. As blackjacks, we are not surprised of this happening with Minzy leaving. There could never be a 2ne1 without any one of the girls missing. But the finality of this disbandment is sad. I never got to see them perform live. As a daraling I always worried for Dara because I didnt like how YG treated her and her position in 2ne1. I am thankful that she continues to be busy but its all because of her hard work and connection to the Phillipines not YG. He renewed her contract because he knows how valuable she is. But YG is not a man to be trusted. I am disgusted in his treatment of Bom- no support or protection from the evildoers who brought her down with the scandal, Minzy-no solo, Dara never got to act until last year.YG family is a farce. Who will he chop next. He has the best talented groups but they sit in the dungeon rotting away without any comeback. So sad. I want to say kpop for me has ended because the heart of kpop, the best of the best girl group 2ne1 is gone. I wish only the best life has in store for you Dara, Bom, Cl and Minzy Thank you! 2ne1 Fighting!
