[Breaking] 2NE1 Officially Disbands After 7 Years

2NE1 agency, YG Entertainment relays the unfortunate news today that 2NE1 (CL, Dara and Bom) officially disbands.

This follows after the withdrawal of Minzy in April this year to pursue a solo career and the members contract expiration in May. YG says, "Although it's a pity and regretful it's impossible to continue their activities." In regards to this, CL and Dara signed solo contracts with YG to pursue their solo careers while Park Bom decided not to renew. Finally YG expresses, "Thank you to local and international fans for loving 2NE1's music."

Although YG assured Blackjacks after Minzy's departure that 2NE1 will continue as a trio and supposed to make a comeback, nothing happened and eventually led to the group's disbandment.

So unfortunate. Stay strong 2NE1 fans.
