Did Girls’ Generation inspire 2NE1? Sandara Park confesses her future return


SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: With 2NE1 being one of the top K-pop groups of the 2010s, their disbandment has always been a mystery. In fact, the group ended just when it was at its peak, which also caused a lot of grief among fans and group members. It was even more shocking when all of the members, including leader CL, revealed that they found out about 2NE1’s disbandment through social media. And so it seems like a reunion was always on the table according to Dara aka Sandara Park.


2022 was a good year as we had several BIGBANG and Girls’ Generation reunions at EXID. 2NE1 had the most iconic reunion as they made a surprise appearance at Coachella 2022. While it was supposed to be a solo invite for CL, she shared that she brought 2NE1 with her because she wanted they reunite before it’s too late. But there’s hope for a full return, as it seems Girls’ Generation inspired them.

Sandara Park talks about a return to 2NE1

On a recent talk show, Sandara Park talked about 2NE1’s legacy and how she went through a dark time when they disbanded. 2NE1 was a global band of its time with famous fans like Emma Stone, Lizzo, and even “Squid Game” star HoYeon Jung. It also seems that there is no love lost between 2NE1 and their former label YG Entertainment, as the members candidly shared that their CEO actually called them ugly. On the talk show, Sandara also shared her bitterness at only having two albums when the group had been active for 7 years. There were also rumors that 2NE1 disbanded in 2015 because the following year YG wanted to focus on Blackpink’s debut.


And so with 2NE1 not wanting to disband in the first place, it seems like returning to the Girls’ Generation reunion in 5 years has given them hope. Girls’ Generation was another popular girl group leading the Hallyu wave in the 2010s. However, they ended up going on indefinite hiatus in 2017. They reunited for a talk show in 2021 but eventually came out an album and promoted it in 2022 for their 15th anniversary. To that, Sandara shared that it also gave 2NE1 hope for a future comeback because “all the members want it, and we think there’s a time for us. We recently saw Girls’ Generation reunite. , so I think the second generation is still alive.”
