It seems like fans will have to wait a bit longer for Minzy's official solo debut. 


On May 31, Minzy's label Music Works talked about the current plans they have for their new artist. A representative stated, "Currently, Minzy is focusing on her education, so we have not talked to her about any promotions yet. We will start to discuss them once her break starts at the end of June."

Meanwhile, Minzy is currently a Junior at Baekseok University. During an interview for her school's newspaper back in 2014, Minzy showed undivided passion for her studies, saying, "I want to become a pastor, who can help children easily connect to Christian culture.


We root for all of your dreams, Minzy!

    wow! I am surprised that so many people are surprised about her Christian faith and goals. She has often uploaded religious posts on SNS and have been part of  a Christian group made of other Christian celebrities that prayed and worshiped together.

    You might as well become a pastor since you won't sell as an artist

    I'm kinda confused. I thought she left 2ne1 because she thought she wasn't getting enough work and attention compared to the other members. If she choose to stick with the education route why did she leave 2ne1?

    Her fascination with religion has really diminished my respect for her. A religious mind is always a confused, irrational mind, without exception. And she has allowed her precious brain to be confused by faith. Why disrespect your human intelligence like that? Now I could live with her private confusion, but what's unforgivable is that she is planning to brainwash innocent children with nonsense too. I really hope that her university education will enlighten her, and that she'll learn the scientific method which will help her mind work reliably and without fooling itself.

    that's such a rude thing to say!!! i'm not religious, but saying that stuff makes ME mad, you should respect people who wants to believe in more than we can see, let them believe in what ever the heck they want! don't disrespect people because they want to believe different then you!

    I'm not denying her right to believe. Of course she has it. But a right to believe does not mean right to believe without being subjected to criticism. That's what a lot of people don't seem to understand. They think that if you have a right to believe something, it means you can go through life with your faith being untouchable. They think that freedom to believe means: "I believe what I want, and I express it, and you must respect it by shutting up about it". That's not how it works, though. She has the right to believe, and go public with her faith. And I have the right to disagree with what she believes in and also go public with my disagreement. Freedom of belief goes both ways. I have no reason to respect someone's incorrect views, let alone if they concern "more than we can see", which doesn't make any sense. Especially since these kinds of views often lead to dangerous consequences which in hindsight cannot be justified, since the belief in the first place had to do with something that cannot be seen.

    What's wrong about being confused ? we're humans , we have limits and we can't know everything , i you follow carefully the scientifics methods you'll reach a point where you won't be able to find a scientific explanation no matter how hard you try , just think about the way you were created , you think it was by chance ?

    My mom and dad somehow scientifically met each other on a bus on their way back home, and then somehow scientifically they met each other again just to found out they work at the same company and scientifically falling for each other (despite there are many other men & women besides the two of them), and then scientifically successfully getting married after all, and finally scientifically I was born despite the there are millions other sperms than that specific one which becomes me in the end. :D

    Well I just provided real life example on what "a point where you won't be able to find a scientific explanation" is, since I seriously cannot scientifically deduct how those two met in the first place.

    even if you think of the very beginning of the creation of the world , is it even possible that everything exist by coincidence

    she wants to become a pastor? wow, what a waste of a musical and dancing career (especially when you're one of the best idol dancers out there).

    Hmm...  I wonder if I'm wasting my time looking forward to what she's going to come out with.  If her passion is no longer in music (meaning she's spending time improving and really enhancing her skills so that she can present the best product when she debut's), then it's going to be harder for her to make it.  YG said the same thing about her focus being education.  That's noble and everything but since her major is not related to the music industry in the slightest, that means she's getting rustier and rustier as time goes by.  Her dancing is already a bit slower than it used to be.  And something tells me she isn't taking vocal lessons either.  She doesn't give the impression that she's hungry for singing/dance/rap anymore.  If they haven't even talked about what she's going to do on her break, that means no plans have been made and the chances of her releasing something during that time is minimal.

    You read what they said? never focus on the titles when it comes to allkpop they always misleading. They said they will start talking about her music starting june because thats when she gets a break from school. Its not like june is in 6 months oh look its already june so she will start. She was almost at the end of a semester and you expected her to drop it? When she was almost done. Sounds legit. She should follow your example

    I read it. But she won't be on break for very long correct? Planning a debut takes time if it's done correctly. I'm assuming she's going back to school at the start of the new semester which usually is right around the corner. And no, I didn't expect her to drop out so what example of mine is she following exactly? Everything I said was taking into consideration that school is her priority. It's kinda hard to do music part time which is what she'll be doing until she finishes getting her degree. I'm a fan of hers and I think she's talented, but she's still a little rough around the edges in all areas. I don't know how she is as a rapper anymore since her lines in 2ne1 were pretty basic, her dancing is slow and stagnant, and her vocals are nice and consistent but I'm not sure how she'll do on a solo track that she'll have to carry alone since we haven't heard her do it yet. I'm rooting for her as a solo artist, but before she releases anything I'm hoping she works on sharpening her skills so that she doesn't have a luke warm debut. From what I've read about her the last few months she's been more focused on school than training so that's why I said she doesn't seem hungry for the industry anymore.
