Is Kpop Group 2NE1 Disbanding?

내가 제일 잘 나가
naega jeil jal naga

It's these words that most fans of Kpop groups 2NE1 know best. But as of the news right now, 2NE1 fans might think they and YG Entertainment are the worst.

Officially on Friday, November 25, 2016 2NE1 fans had their hearts crushed when the three women Bom, CL, and Dara were officially disbanded. This comes after the youngest member, Minzy, left 2NE1 in April of 2016. As YG Entertainment stated in a press release, the women said that they were "deeply saddened to let [2NE1] go", but that for everyone's best interest, it was better for each member to pursue their own solo careers. 

This does not mean there will be a lack of 2NE1 members releasing music. YG Entertainment signed on more contracts with CL and Dara, but it seems that Park Bom (박봄) will not be managed by YG Entertainment. This may be in part from Bom illegally smuggling in medication from the US to South Korea, which is also when 2NE1 stopped all performances and activities. 

There's plenty of theories as to why 2NE1 is disbanding; release of YG Entertainment's new female group, BlackPink, when 2NE1 was YG's original female group. There's the theory of Bom and legality issues as well, or due to CL and Dara wanting to continue their budding solo careers. Certainly, Minzy not renewing was a major factor to the equation.
