Minzy leaves 2NE1

Attention all K-pop fans, Minzy from 2NE1 is parting ways with the group. CL, Bom and Dara will continue in 2NE1 as a three piece.

Official statement from the girl’s record label YG Entertainment:

“We first would like to apologize for delivering such unfortunate news to all of our patient fans that have been waiting for a long time. We would like to officially announce that 2NE1’s maknae Minzy will no longer be part of the group.

With May 5th, 2016 marking the date for each 2NE1 members to renew their contracts, YG tried to convince each member through individual meetings since January in hopes of contract renewals. However, Minzy did not wish to continue in the group 2NE1.

The other three members will renew their contract and will release a new song upcoming summer but as of now, we are not looking to add any members in place of Minzy.”

We wish Minzy and the rest of the girls continued success in all their future endeavors.
