Article: Sandara Park Clarifies Rumors Surrounding 2NE1’s Disbandment

On March 30, Sandara Park opened up about 2NE1’s disbandment during an interview for her upcoming movie “One Step.”

The actress said, “About three years in, I realized it wouldn’t be possible for 2NE1 to last forever and worried about it. It was really sad when our disbandment became a reality since we had been together for 10 years.”

“Even up until a couple months ago, I was just always at home. But now, the members come to show their support for me, like they did yesterday. So now it just feels like we just won’t be promoting together for a while and I’ve been able to work happily again.”

In response to a question about rumors of bad blood between Gong Minzy, who left 2NE1 in April of 2016, and the other members, Sandara Park clarified, “If you only know about what happened through news articles, I think it’s easy to misunderstand what happened. But we haven’t really noticed a huge change in our own personal relationships.”

She continued, “Although Gong Minzy couldn’t come to the exclusive screening event for ‘One Step’ due to schedule conflicts, she has been supporting me. I started learning how to play guitar when I was a trainee after watching the Japanese movie “Midnight Sun.” Gong Minzy told me at the time that playing the guitar fit me and that’s when I realized that she was a friend that really knew me well.”

Q. “One Step” is your first ever Korean film. Don’t you feel pressure about debuting as a movie actress?
Sandara: I didn’t feel any pressure about it because I tried my best at every moment and I was confident in myself. However, I couldn’t sleep well after having a movie premiere yesterday. I don’t know why, but I was so nervous.

Q. CL and Park Bom attended the movie premiere. What did they tell you about the movie?
Sandara: I was so happy because they said my singing has improved a lot.

Q. How about Minzy? She didn’t attend the movie premiere.
Sandara: Even though she couldn’t attend the event due to her busy schedule, she called me to support me. There seems to be some misunderstanding, by the way. Some people say there was some discord among us when Minzy left 2NE1. It’s not true. We’re still in a good relationship.

Q. Tell me about the breakup of 2NE1. Didn’t you have any choice except to disband the team?
Sandara: Actually, I’ve been thinking about it since we were a 3rd-year girl group. I didn’t want to part with them, but I knew we have to say good bye one day or other. It was very sad to part with them because we’ve been great friends for about 10 years.

Q. So, as a solo artist, will you focus on your activities as an actress?
Sandara: No, even though 2NE1 has been disbanded, I will still sing. I will sing and act at the same time, and that’s why I’m preparing for my solo album.

Q. Tell me about your solo album.
Sandara: I think my solo songs will be totally different from 2NE1’s songs. I want to try different things. For example, I want to sing very cheerful dance music. I hope I will release the album this summer.

Q. Don’t you feel pressure to achieve a success as a solo artist?
Sandara: When I was a member of 2NE1, so many people came to our concert. However, it seems like many people don’t even know about my movie. Well, I’m just trying to be positive. I’m not sure I can become as popular as 2NE1, but I know life is a succession of failures. I’ll challenge myself and never give up.

Q. There are some people who say you have poor acting skills.
Sandara: I think it’s because of my high voice tone, and it’s true I was once frustrated when I heard such a criticism. Actually, when 2NE1 released a ballad music, my part was very small because music producers said my voice tone didn’t fit such a music. So I tried to lower my voice tone, but it was not easy. However, I’ve changed my mindset after 2NE1 was disbanded. As I said, I’m trying to be positive, and I’ll try to strengthen my strength instead of worrying about my weakness.

Q. Your new movie “Cheese in the trap” will begin shooting in April. Tell me about the movie.
Sandara: As it was already made into a drama last year, I think we need to make it into a totally new version. The director of the movie wanted me to be myself, and I’ll try to show real me in the movie. I’m really looking forward to the movie.

News: “Leaving the comfort zone of 2NE1 and getting into a battle field”… Sandara Park’s 3rd life.

[OSEN Journalist Jang Jin Ri]

Sandara has shown a “true her” through music movie “One Step”. It was the first time she participated in a movie and played the leading role, which made it even more meaningful for her.

Sandara Park debuted as a 2NE1 member in 2009 and being a singer for several years. She now has a brand new title – actress – due to the movie “One Step”. Dara is gradually showing herself as an actress from web drama to the movie. Although she says “Well begun is half done.”, she only rates her acting skill a 51 points.

“I feel like I don’t really recognize myself. I never do. I’m the kind of person who cannot recognize myself. If 100 is maximum, I might get 51. But that is what beginning means, since there is a saying “Well begum is half done.” If I rated myself 100 it’d be like a poser.” She laughed.

“One Step” is talking about Sihyun who lost her memory in an accident and Jill who was a composer but suddenly failed to compose songs. They cured each other through music and during the time they both grew up. As for Sihyun and Jill’s story and the slogan of the movie: “Who am I?”, Sandara said: “Due to my busy work these years, I barely asked myself “Who am I?”. But while we were filming the movie, I asked myself “Who am I?”, then I realized “Just Sandara Park” so I could keep doing this.”

2017 means a lot of “for the first time” to Sandara Park. Solo activities for the first time, participating in a movie for the first time, playing a leading role for the first time. Sandara Park is excited for it but also a bit nervous. However, she says its gonna be “Sandara Park’s 3rd life.”

“I had been a singer for a long time, but there is no solo songs that for me to feel like “This is my song.”. Now I just left the comfort zone of 2NE1 and stepped into a battlefied. It’s war and I have to fight for it. It seems to be my 3rd life. My 1st life was in the Philippines, 2nd was being 2NE1 member. And now this solo Sandara Park is gonna be the 3rd life.”

Sandara Park is willing to do something as a singer even though she is officially stepping into acting. “I want to be a person like Um Jung-Hwa sunbae. She is a singer when she sings, and becomes an actress when she acts. I want to become little Um Jung-Hwa. I’d love to have much more acitivites in the one and only path that Um Jung-Hwa unnie has walked by.”

News/Official: YG Life – [POP Issue] 2NE1 Says Goodbye By Releasing a New Single in Three Years

[POP Issue] 2NE1 Says Goodbye By Releasing a New Single in Three Years

2496543d565dfdbcba42439f21319a95

2NE1 is to release a new single for the first time in three years to say goodbye to their fans.

CL and DARA’s agency YG Entertainment issued an official announcement on January 5 and said, “CL, DARA, and BOM is to release a new single titled ‘GOOD BYE’ on January 21. They have recently finished recording the song and shooting the music video. It will be their last official song.” It’s been only two months since the group’s disbandment, and all the 2NE1 members got together except for MINZI.

2NE1 announced their disbandment in November last year. YG said, “We decided that it will be difficult to maintain 2NE1 as a group and focusing on supporting them as solo artists is better. We renewed contracts with CL and DARA in May, but unfortunately, not with BOM.” As of now, there is no news of BOM joining another agency.

After the official announcement, DARA, CL, and BOM each expressed how sad they are on their SNS pages. They expressed how sorry they are to cause pain to their fans as well as how thankful they are to their fans and that they will forever cherish the memories.” MINZI, who left the group in April last year, also wrote a letter saying, “I’ve received so much love. To repay the love I got from the fans, I will continue to work hard and become better.”

Except for performing at the 2015 MAMA, 2NE1 had been on a long hiatus after releasing their second regular album “CRUSH” in February 2014. This is why the members felt that they did not say a proper goodbye to their fans. This is also the reason why CL, DARA, and BOM got together for this new single.

GOOD BYE” is a good bye from 2NE1 as well as their first new single in three years. MINZI is now a solo artist under Music Works, so she wasn’t able to participate. But still, fans are happy to see the three 2NE1 members together. YG artists have been dominating the charts since the beginning of this year, and we will soon be able to find out whether 2NE1′s new single will continue the trend and whether fans will welcome the group’s last present.

[Exclusive] 2NE1 Finished Shooting a Music Video on January 3. Does This Mean Reunion or a Present for Fans?

2015120305133403869_1_99_20170105181402

The recently-disbanded group 2NE1 had a secret get-together.

Sources informed Sports Today on January 5, “2NE1 finished shooting a music video on Janaury 3 abroad. MINZI already has another agency, so she wasn’t able to join them.”

YG Entertainment announced the disbandment of 2NE1 in November last year. CL and DARA renewed their contract with YG as solo artists, but not BOM. MINZI had left YG in April last year.

Fans were sorry to see the group disband suddenly, and many wanted them to reunite. Then came the news that 2NE1 is shooting a new music video, and people wandered about what it meant.

It is yet unclear whether this means that 2NE1 has reunited or it is a last present for the fans, but the fact that 2NE1 members came together will send shockwaves across Korea’s music scene.
