Q: The ones who are labeled as the "second 2NE1," Black Pink, debuted.

CL: "I'm reminded of our old days when I see them promoting. I had thoughts that we used to work hard just like them as well."

Q: Did you sometimes give any advice?

CL: "To be honest, I have to focus on myself and got my own things to worry about. I'm not in a position to offer advice to others."

Q: How do you feel when people say Black Pink is the "second 2NE1"?

CL: "When 2NE1 first debuted, we were also labeled as the 'second Big Bang.' It's only natural since we're both from the same label. I believe it shows that we have a lot of influence so I don't feel bad. Black Pink and 2NE1's colors are very different."

its true, i do think they are similar just like big bang is similar to 2ne1. they were trained in the same company, and have the same producer write songs. yg also loves a more badass concept so thats the vibe all three groups give off. but i think blackpink was smart in that they fit with what is happening rn in kpop. with all the new groups with fresh, young, pretty faces. blackpink can sing ballads and be emotional, they can be cutesy, they can be fierce with club bangers, etc. they are good competition for the newest groups rn. idk 2ne1 was fierce, mature, also extremely adorable as well, but it was just a different feeling, so i think they both have their charms. i think yg just wanted to create a group that was successful like 2ne1 was so they are very similar, but have their differences. i personally love them both and am a total yg stan.

Ugh BlackPink and 2NE1 are so effing different...Like so every Group with 4 members is the next 2ne1 and every group with 3 members is the next S.E.S

I honestly don't feel any vibes of 2NE1 coming from BlackPink. They're different, just have the same song producers.

thats so true. i mean, no matter how hard you try, you can't stop being compared to your older brother/sister!! it doesn't matter who's better, but the fact that they come from the same company is probably the prime reason black pink is being compared to 2ne1 bc true fans know that "black pink copying 2ne1's style" is straight up bullshit

id say its more the number size of the group which makes it obvious to me BP was molded after 2ne1. if they were a 6, 7, 8, 9 member group i think it'd be totally different, even maybe comparisons to other agency groups. and the number of members planned for a group has a dramatic impact on everything. having the same number of members as 2ne1 speaks volumes.

in itself from a pre planning perspective of how they were thinking.

sehyunkimm smokeee Sunday, January 22, 2017

ok but its not necessarily bc he wanted to mold black pink after 2ne1. if we r talking about pre-plans, black pink was actually molded after snsd. but yg is very selective with who he debuts so obv its harder to find more members who are willing to train for 5+ years and who are also simultaneously rlly talented

2ne1 not relevant

Suu.S Hyeriioo Sunday, January 22, 2017

How is 2ne1 not relevant ? They are clearly comparing BP with 2ne1 as they were saying that "BP is the new 2ne1" ..

Hyeriioo Suu.S Sunday, January 22, 2017

yes but they not relevant anymore .. this is new generation

Stupid question. 2NE1 is YG STYLE. BLACKPINK is YG STYLE. They said that 2ne1 was the next Big Bang but no. Blackpink is sooooo different than 2ne1. The only similarity? TEDDY MADE ALL THEIR FREAKING SONGS! Sooo. man.

qiaoqien Sunday, January 22, 2017

They are very different. 2ne1 is fierce and their stage presence is too strong compared to BP's stage presence. bp's all about visuals and choreography, just like any other gg nowadays who acts all cute off stage talks like a baby its seriously too much. , except that BP,  they sing live which is impressive. 2ne1's stage feels like its a concert, too much fierceness and no other gg not even bp have.

BP and 2ne1 is SAME. BP just more visual then their sunbae. Blackjack "auto Blink".

deza7744 Sunday, January 22, 2017

Imo because they have the same producer, their music may sound similar. However I think in the future we will see BLACKPINK have a different colour to 2NE1. already BP are more cute less badass as 2NE1 and Jennie did say they expected the comparisons like CL and being the female big bang. She also said though that BP will show their unique colour as time goes on
