FIESTAR's Linzy proved there isn't a look she doesn't look great in! She recently took part in a solo pictorial for 'International bnt' where she looks stunning in casual and sexy concepts!

During her interview, she surprised us by revealing that she's a former YG Entertainment trainee and was actually a candidate for 2NE1! Before that, she auditioned for a total of 9 years since grade 6 before she got into a company. If that's not dedication, we don't know what is!

Linzy shared there weren't many trainees at the time at YGE, and she spent a lot of time with the 2NE1 members and SPICA's Bohyung. Eventually, she left YG Entertainment and joined LOEN Entertainment, where she became the FIESTAR member you know her as today.

She shared, "If I had become a 2NE1 member, more people would have been aware of me and I would have gotten more money and fame, but I think that wasn't my path."

Linzy also revealed that she's still close with SPICA's Bohyung, but has grown apart from the 2NE1 members as they are very busy. Also, Linzy spent another four years as a trainee at LOEN, and 2NE1 had already become 'sunbaes' by the time FIESTAR debuted. When she met 2NE1 at a music show, she thought that they might have forgotten about her, but they called her name first and approached her, and she said she was very touched by that.

er role models, as a group and individually, is Girls' Generation. She admires how they've been able to promote for so long as a group, as the unit TaeTiSeo, and individually on variety programs.

Even though she's FIESTAR's main vocal, Linzy kept it modest by saying, "I don't think that my voice is something I was born with." She said that as she was trying to fix what she was lacking, she became the group's main vocal.

You and half of Korea, chick. I notice they only bring up this information when they need publicity.

Linzy would've made a great main vocalist, with Bom and Bohyung, but I guess that wasn't meant for her, and I love Fiestar as well, so fighting to both groups and Spica (Bohyung's current group)

2ne1 will not be 2ne1 if it's not Bom, CL, Minzy and Dara. Their diversity from each other is what made the group of what they are today. Having said that, I don't think it will ever be the same if one or two members have not been in the group.

You never know man, that's the wonderful and sad thing about it. So many what ifs.

I have a real feeling BNT twisted her words around here. She clarified herself on a radio show a few months ago that she was never actually planned to be a member of 2NE1. She was a trainee at YG at the time 2NE1 was actual put together as a group and wasn't chosen which is WHY she left YG and went to LOEN. (Also why are all these 2ne1 stans so mad, Linzy is too humble to go around name dropping for fame or she would've name dropped half of SM by now lmao)
