Gong Minzy: “I was a member of 2NE1…”
Gong Minzy posted on her personal Instagram account about her feelings regarding 2NE1’s new song. In her post, Minzy uploaded a picture of the group together. She also expressed her disappointment that she found out about Goodbye thru a news article.
“This is very unfortunate as I was previously a member of the group 2NE1, but I share the same feelings as the other members in wanting to show appreciation and bid farewell to everyone for all their love and support of 2NE1,” Minzy wrote.
2NE1의 마지막 음원 발표 소식을 기사를 통해 알게되어, 저로선 매우 유감스럽고 안타깝지만, 일전에 2NE1의 멤버로서 대중분들과 팬 여러분들께서 주신 사랑에 대한 감사와 마지막으로 인사드리는 작별 인사의 마음은 멤버들과 동일합니다. 사랑해주셔서 진심으로 감사드리고 우리 멤버들 CL언니, BOM언니, 다라언니 그리고 저, 모두 앞으로 펼쳐 나갈 활동에도 많은 관심과 따뜻한 응원 부탁드립니다❤️#2NE1#Fourever #Goodbye It's a shame that I had to find out 2NE1 will be releasing their final album through a news article. This is very unfortunate as I was previously a member of the group 2NE1, but I share the same feelings as the other members in wanting to show appreciation and bid farewell to everyone for all their love and support of 2NE1. I am truly grateful and sincerely appreciate all the love 2NE1 received and hope for your extended love and support as the members continue on in their individual careers. Thank you.
Fans have mixed reactions regarding Minzy’s post. Some were dismayed that the former member could not join 2NE1 in their last song. There were others who felt that it’s just right Minzy was not included.
“Of course she will be excluded. She already left 2NE1 before they disbanded,” one commented. Another netizen said, “If you want to be a part of the song, then you should’ve approached them first.”
2Ne1 New Song Update: It’s For The Blackjacks
According to YG Entertainment, Goodbye is 2NE1’s way of thanking their fans. CL, Bom and Dara came together one last time because they wanted to say a proper farewell to their fans.
“Their disbandment was so sudden that they didn’t get to say a proper goodbye to the Blackjacks,” a representative from YG Entertainment said, adding, “It’s why they worked as a group for one last time to give the fans a farewell gift.”
The song was written by CL, 2NE1’s main rapper and leader. 2NE1 new song update includes an unnamed country where the girls shot the music video for their song. They have finished recording the song already, and it will be released on Jan. 21.
Another 2NE1 new song update is YG Entertainment confirming Minzy’s non-inclusion in Goodbye. According to the representative, Minzy was already signed in another agency before 2NE1 disbanded.
