YG has officially announced that 2NE1 has disbanded. The group rose to fame in 2009, with their more Western than Eastern musical ways. Although the trio is forever no more, CL and Dara have sign contracts as solo artists with YG Entertainment.
However, it is not known if Park Bom has not resigned with the agency because of her free will or because YG doesn't want her back. She has caused a lot of controversy for using hardcore drug in this past.
YG's official statement:
2NE1’s exclusive contract expired in May 2016, and with Minzy leaving 2NE1, we have come to the decision to officially disband after extensive discussion with the remaining members. As 2NE1 was YG’s official girl group for seven years, we cannot begin to express how we feel, but we determined that it was too difficult to continue. Rather than waiting an unknown amount of time for 2NE1’s next promotions, we have decided to focus on the members’ solo activities. We sincerely thank all the fans both in Korea and abroad that have loved the group and their music for all this time.
We would like to officially announce that after last May, we resigned with CL and Sandara Park. However, unfortunately, there is no new contract with Park Bom.”
How do you feel about the break up? Do you think CL is still trying to aim for a almost impossible career in the West? Will Park Bom join another agency? Leave a comment below and don't forget to listen to Soto & The Krash's newest single- So Much Better! Until next time.
