[NEWS] Yang Hyun Suk plans to make 2011 2NE1’s year


2NE1 debuted three years ago, but in my eyes, they still look like rookies. I think that’s synonymous to how they haven’t had that many activities or exposure through TV. Therefore, 2NE1 still has quite a bit to show. This year will be the year to settle it all.

The above statement was made by YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk, expressing his views on 2NE1’s impending return to the music industry.

Coming back with ‘Lonely’ eight months after dropping their first studio album, 2NE1 has been sweeping Korean music charts, even scoring a perfect all-kill in major charts in May. Continue reading

[NEWS] 2NE1 To Perform “Lonely” On “Inkigayo” May 29th

Teasing fans earlier yesterday with news of a possible live broadcast performance of 2NE1’s new single “Lonely”, Blackjacks wishes have been fufilled as the group will make their 1st and only comeback performance on next week’s episode of SBS’s “Inkigayo”.

Unlike Park Bom’s “Don’t Cry” single where YG Entertainment assured fans there was 0% chance they would see her perform her song on a music show, on their YG-Life blog it was confirmed 2NE1 would promote “Lonely” with the following message:


2NE1’s “Lonely” performance live on SBS Inkigayo, May 29th = 100% chance

What do you think, did YG Entertainment had this planned from the start or was the widespread positive response from “Lonely” too much, even for Yang Hyun Seok to say no to?
