Yang Hyun Suk shared his thoughts on 2NE1 and Girls' Generation's intersecting comebacks and how he felt it helped both groups in .
On the March 15 broadcast of KBS 2TV's 'Entertainment Relay', 2NE1's CL shared in an interview, "'Come Back Home' is a meaningful song because our CEO performed a song titled 'Come Back Home' during his Seo Taiji and Boys days."
Their CEO Yang Hyun Suk was also interviewed and asked, "I heard that you participated in making the choreography [for 'Come Back Home']. Is that true?" Yang Hyun Suk shared, "If you listen to 'Come Back Home', you can't help but think about Seo Taiji and Boys' 'Come Back Home'. So the choreographer and 2NE1 members thought it would be nice touch for their CEO, the choreographer for the original 'Come Back Home' to contribute, so I helped out."
Yang Hyun Suk also opened up about the girl group battle between 2NE1 and Girls' Generation, sharing, "It was a time when 2NE1 needed to release an album and by coincidence, Girls' Generation also made a comeback. I think of it as a competition in good faith and I think it is a period that is helping both groups."
When asked, "When you compare 2NE1 to Girls' Generation, what do you think 2NE1 is better at?" Yang Hyun Suk shared, "through CL's participation in the writing and composing of songs this time and to see their unique color of music, rather than feeling the joy of a successful album, I felt like I saw the groups potentials to progress further in the future."
