YG, “We are more worried about 2NE1’s debut than when Big Bang did”
YG speaks up the upcoming debut of their female group 2NE1 this May. YG Entertainment said in an interview on the 22nd, “We have not decided on how to have 2NE1 debut. The company is going through discussions on that currently. Mr. Yang Hyun Seok is putting a lot of emphasis and planning for 2NE1’s debut.”
“Because this is the female group that YG is debuting for a long time ever since the last female group, we can only be more prudent and careful with the planning. As compared to debuting Big Bang, we are more worried and had put in much more effort for debuting 2NE1.”
The representative added, “Right now, they are also filming their MV. It will be a surprise and shock for everyone when it is revealed. We believe all this will bring us good results.”
Meanwhile, the CM song ‘Lollipop’ featuring the collaboration of Big Bang and 2NE1 continues to excel on various music charts.
