2NE1 to Meet Yang Hyun Suk, Sparking Comeback Speculation and Excitement Among Blackjacks

Buzz is circulating across social media and online communities about the potential reunion of iconic second-generation K-pop group 2NE1. On June 25, Korean news outlet Osen released an exclusive report revealing that 2NE1 will reportedly meet with YG Entertainment founder Yang Hyun Suk, fueling speculation about a possible comeback.

Approaching their 15th debut anniversary, the group’s potential reunion is generating significant excitement. YG Entertainment confirmed on June 25 KST that executive producer Yang Hyun Suk is set to meet with all four members—CL, Minzy, Park Bom, and Sandara Park. However, the agency added, “There is nothing else we can confirm at this time.”

This announcement has led to widespread speculation and heightened anticipation among fans. Sources indicate that the meeting follows a previous one between CL and Yang Hyun Suk, which also took place during the group’s anniversary. This news has reignited rumors of an imminent reunion for the beloved quartet.

2NE1’s possible comeback carries special significance for their fans, known as Blackjacks. The group, despite their disbandment in November 2016, remains one of the most legendary acts in K-pop history. The members have maintained a strong bond, keeping their connection alive. Blackjacks and K-pop enthusiasts continue to hope for 2NE1’s return to the music scene.

Debuting in 2009, 2NE1 released numerous K-pop classics, including “Fire,” “I Am the Best,” “Ugly,” “Lonely,” “I Don’t Care,” and “Hate You.” Despite their unfortunate disbandment, the group’s legacy endures. Recently, the members surprised fans by sharing reunion photos online, sparking further speculation about a comeback. The images generated a flurry of excitement and questions about the group’s future.

An online forum quickly formed, with netizens expressing their astonishment and delight at seeing the four members together in professional photos. “They shared photos for their 15th anniversary,” one user noted. “It’s been so long since I’ve seen them together like this.”

According to media reports, the upcoming meeting between 2NE1 and Yang Hyun Suk will focus on discussing a potential reunion and a 15th-anniversary project. Last month, news surfaced that CL and Yang Hyun Suk had met, but YG Entertainment clarified that it was not an official company meeting, and they could not provide further details.

In May, 2NE1 celebrated their 15th anniversary by sharing a group photo, which further fueled reunion rumors. The group had previously made headlines with a surprise performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April 2022, marking their first performance together since their disbandment.

As the four members prepare to meet with Yang Hyun Suk, fans are eagerly awaiting updates. YG Entertainment has confirmed the meeting but remains tight-lipped about any further developments. Blackjacks remain hopeful that this meeting will lead to the long-awaited reunion and new projects from one of K-pop’s most beloved groups.
