Yang Hyun Suk, the CEO of YG Entertainment, recently sat down for an interview and was immediately asked about the shocking disbandment of the group that rocked the K-pop industry. Yang Hyun Suk commented, ‘I wanted to protect 2NE1 when Minzy moved to another label but the reason why I decided on their disbandment was because I believed that Park Bom's mental health was not well. After that incident (her drug controversy), the criticism she received was immense. Not only did Park Bom suffer from stress and guilt, but she also longed to keep promoting with 2NE1. I advised Park Bom that 2NE1 is important, but I wanted her to put her mental and physical health first.’
Yang Hyun Suk then added, ‘You never know what can happen so there may come a day when they reunite like S.E.S. I believe that day will come.’ YG Entertainment announced 2NE1’s disbandment on November 2016 with the release of their final song, ‘Goodbye’.
