Another 2NE1 member to share her sentiments on the K-Pop girl group's disbandment is none other than Park Bom!
A couple of hours prior to the release of their final song "Good Bye," the 32-year old uploaded the teaser poster of their last project with the caption: "To me… One of the most painful words in the world is… the word… good…bye…”
The world-renowned girl group's management YG Entertainment and its CEO Yang Hyun Suk revealed in an interview that the decision to disband 2NE1 was over Bom's mental health, reports Soompi.
"When Gong Minzy moved to a different agency, I wanted to save 2NE1. What led to the decision to disband the group was the state of Park Bom’s mental health," he explained. "After [Bom's drug scandal], the criticisms we received were endless."
"But in addition to the stress and guilt from that, I’m sure Park Bom would have felt a strong determination to continue 2NE1. I told her, ‘2NE1 is important, but I wish for you to be healthy, both mentally and physically."
Hyun Suk, however, assured Blackjacks that there's a possibility for a 2NE1 reunion. “You never know what can happen; it’s possible they’ll get back together like S.E.S. It may not be as long of a break [as S.E.S], but I’m thinking there’ll be a day when the reunion happens.”
