On November 25, YG Entertainment officially announced 2NE1's disbandment and Nam Tae Hyun's departure from WINNER.

Official announcements are as follows: 

"Our contract with 2NE1 came to an end in May of 2016, and as we faced a situation where Minzy is no longer with us, we ultimately came to a decision of 2NE1's official disbandment after long discussion.  

For the past 7 years, 2NE1 was a representative group of YG. We, too, cannot express how upset and disappointed we are. However, we judge that it'll be difficult to continue promoting. We decided that instead of looking forward to 2NE1's unpredictable promotions, we should rather focus on the solo promotions of the members.

We sincerely appreciate everyone who loved 2NE1 and their music.

Meanwhile, in May, YG renewed the contract with CL and Dara. Unfortunately, we officially announce that Park Bom did not have a renewal."

YG also officially announced Nam Tae Hyun's departure. 

"WINNER, who announced to have active promotions this year, unfortunately, had to halt all promotions due to Nam Tae Hyun's mental health issues. YG and rest of the members looked forward to and considered first and foremost for Nam Tae Hyun's recovery. 

However, it's a mental issue he struggled with since young age, and his recovery and return are unpredictable. Therefore, we judged that it's impossible for him to carry on promotions with WINNER. 

We are officially announcing that as of November 18, our contract with Nam Tae Hyun came to an end. We believe that the pressure on Nam Tae Hyun in causing issues to the group can no longer be halting the promotion of WINNER who's only a group of 2 years. 

Nam Tae Hyun can no longer be with WINNER, however, we wish for them to remain colleagues who can give support for each other's individual music promotions. 

YG plans to officially start preparing for WINNER's promotions with 4 members without any new addition to the group. Please give great support and encouragement for Nam Tae Hyun and WINNER who's facing a new start as a group of 4."

This is so sad and I feel empty. I was looking forward to their comeback. Tae Hyun take care... You were my favorite member. 2ne1 was not only the best female group but also a precious memory to me 😢

What a shame 2 very talented singers left YG.  One of my no my favorite girl group will be missed :(

Remember a rumored song registered under 2NE1, with the publisher being YG Entertainment and one of the writers being CL. What will happen to the song?? Throw it away?!

CL said she spent the summer producing for 2NE1 , also EXIT PROJECT , More than 20 songs were ready to be out in 2016 as WINNER member mentioned during EXIT:E promotion ....I guess those songs will never see the light ...

Clearly,the thing I got from this is that Taehyun and om were kicked out because they were having a tough time struggling with personal issues...YG is the biggest asshole in the Kpop world.

filosophie Monday, November 28, 2016

Im REALLY mad like you could keep promoting winner without taehyun like any other group member rn thats is going for a difficult moment, but no kicking him off the agency???? that was kind of like saying that they cant support an artist with mental health in the company UGH and 2NE1 i just no..

Just feel really bad because YG kept us hoping for a 2NE1 comeback.  I guess all the delay is because they dont want any flak going to BP.  Now that BP has had a successful debut, YG announced the disbandment.  Good strategy really - doesnt matter if they trampled on the hearts of the fans.  Forgot that YG is running a business after all.

yg deserves NONE of his artists. NONE. I hope that SOB get's is someday when all his artists decide to leave

damn it's been 3 days and I still can't get over this is YG thinking. I mean I always knew he was one crazy manipulative liar but why the HELL waste so much talent???? I don't understand...Winner had a hella of a lot of potential and he was just too lazy to deal with Taehyun's mental illness? God how can someone be so cruel. And 2NE1 don't get me started, this whole blaming Minzy for leaving and then announcing their disbandment after telling fans there's going to be a COMEBACK is ridiculous, people should just boycott YG so he can't continue doing this to his artists anymore.
