2NE1 postpones Japanese debut, may jumpstart Korean comeback activities
Due to the natural disaster affecting Japan, YG Entertainment has announced that they’ll be postponing 2NE1’s official Japanese debut.
The group was originally scheduled to begin promotions next month with the release of their debut single through Avex. However, on March 16th, Yang Hyun Suk spoke with Star News and revealed, “Originally, we were going to promote through May, but with the disaster affecting Japan, we have decided to postpone 2NE1’s Japanese promotions to a later date.”
He continued, “2NE1 and our representatives are all hoping that the Japanese citizens will no longer be put in harm’s way. As for now, we aren’t sure when 2NE1 will officially be promoting in Japan, but should Japan recover and request for 2NE1, we are ready to head over whenever.”
Regarding the group’s Korean activities, he revealed, “Now that their Japanese debut has been postponed, we may be releasing their Korean comeback album earlier than planned. Their comeback was originally scheduled for June or July, but fans may be able to look forward to a release this April.”
