According to news reports, YG has announced the end to one of their K-Pop legend group 2NE1. This past May, 2NE1’s exclusive contracts with the label expired and Minzy had decided to leave 2NE1 and YG for good. Although YG had announced that 2NE1 will comeback as a trio within the year. However, after long discussions between the group and the label, 2NE1 was officially disbanded.
YG stated in their announcement that since May, CL and Dara had resigned with the label to continue as solo artists, while Park Bom did not recontract.
Nam TaeHyun Leaves WINNER
On the other hand, one of YG’s latest boy groups will also be facing a tremendous change. WINNER will now be promoting as a 4 member group as Nam TaeHyun has officially decided to leave the group and the comapny. YG announced just last month that TaeHyun will be taking a hiatus from the group due to his mental health. TaeHyun’s health issue had ultimately delayed the group’s continuation of the EXIT series for months. Although Instagram rumors flew about TaeHyun having conflicts with the company, Inner Circles prayed for the well being and return of the idol, but TaeHyun has unfortunately decided to move on.
After months of discussion, both the label and the idol decided that it would be best for the two parties to separate as TaeHyun felt horrible for being a burden to his teammates who were in their primetime to promote. TaeHyun’s contract was officially nullified on November 18th.
WINNER will be continuing on as a 4 member group without any additional members. Both WINNER and TaeHyun have decided to remain close as both parties expressed their best wishes for each others’ future careers.
