Dara talked about the difference in promoting solo versus with the 2NE1 members. 

In an interview with Ilgan Sports, Dara opened up about going solo. She said, "It's a big change to me. Especially since 2NE1 disbanded and I'm no longer able to promote with my members, I feel that (difference) a lot in even small things. Like the interview today. It always used to be with 4 members but I came alone. In a way, it's something that can be overwhelming to me."

When asked if she feels their emptiness, Dara answered, "I was lonely and sad about a few months ago. I was afraid because I had to do it alone without the leader. I was always hiding behind CL but I believe I'm in the process of changing. I knew a situation like this could occur because we can't always be together to when we're grandmas. Right now, we are promoting separately but I know this is not the end."

Next, Dara is asked if things were different by herself without 2NE1 members when she recently filmed for 'Running Man'.

She answered, "It has become more comfortable, I think because my personality has changed. In the past, I just used to stand next to my members because I was very timid. '2NE1 TV' or a self (recording) programs were okay but I found it very awkward when around a lot of people. But this time, I talked to the camera director first and even showed an ugly side of me. I don't think I'll be shown very pretty but I had fun."

I know you gonna disagree with me, but to be honest CL and Minzy were the main pillars of 2ne1. Without one of them, it will be no 2ne1. As I always said, allkpop commentators always dislike the truthful commentators, but I don't care. Also, this is what happens when you debut 34-year old women, with teenagers who are fitted enough to be debuted. I don't support long age gap in kpop, especially if it 7 or 10 years old. Why kahi left after school so early? bcuz she reached 30. I am not saying 30 people are old, but come one! Dara was doing more than fine in the Philippines, also bom had a dark history of drugs and stuff, it was not fair for minzy and CL who were trained and didn't have any dark hostories, or have previous fame in another country. I am happy that yg had learned from his mistakes of debuting dara and bom with minzy and cl. Now all black pink girls are pure, healthy, fresh, talented starters who all can sing, dance, rap equally, nobody stands behind the other ones. Rose, the main vocal, jennie the main rapper, and lead vocal, jisoo, main vocal, and visual, and Lisa who is the main dancer, and main rapper .. nobody tops, nobody behind .. all four girls are equal :) GOOD LUCK EVERYONE

I get wat u r trying to say it was YGs first time promoting 4 talented who happened to b v different from each other but dude bom was successful and had a known voice PREDEBUT. Her personality was v likable and shes v sweet. She and dara were in their mid20s NOT 34 when they both debuted lets clear that up. Daras fame was great in phillippines but that wasnt her home + her family situation was messed up. A young girl with success/fame but doesnt get managed properly can burn out and dara didnt want that, she made the right choice with 21. We se young celeb burnouts in hollywood too so it can happen to any young celeb. Also boms "dark history and DEPRESSION" (not fair to lump it together and just say "drugs" when its prescription meds) were a result of tragedy she saw as a teen. Despite her past she DESERVED to debut, should we lock up everyone who battles with illnesses and never help them feel better if their source is happiness is music? We dont even know if now at 33 if she needs to take them daily or she stopped. its HER business. I do love how all blackpink members have a 1-2.5 yr gap between them. Cl only had to deal with bullies like jennie bcz ppl think they are bitchy when really they both r v timid and savage when need be. Lets also be serious here, bom is v talented a voice that hasnt been heard in kpop hence her predebut and post debut success and thats why she deserved and was fitted to debut with 21. ALL of FOUR of them deserved to debut. Btw as much as i love blackpink, jennie is the one lagging behind in terms of standing out. She says shes better than avg but not great and is worried abt her rapper/singer role. All of the other 3 have a 'thing' they excel at but jennie still doesnt. At least in 21 each of them already stood out from the start. The only issue was minzy never had a solo and im not gonna say why but i understand why she wasnt AS profitable to nonfans/shareholders whoever. of course 2ne1 cannot go on forever but im sure this is not the last we will see of 2ne1. im sure a reunion can happen but im glad all 4 are happy and doing well. I hope blackpink can break the 7 yr curse and have amazing careers as a group and solos.

Like there is nothing to talk about. Its in the past. I personally loved 2ne1 very much. Loved their song and 2ne1 was my pillar of kpop. But sad things happened. We are all over it. No need to blame anyone for anything.

I obviously didn't want them to disband but I feel like they are shining more with individually especially dara and minzy and now I need Bom to make an album and promote

Chrysantheneum 4sara12 Tuesday, April 4, 2017

Bom won't make anything antime soon I'm afraid.

kmspl Monday, April 3, 2017

Does AKP not keep track to make sure there are no repeated news? This is pretty much the exact same content as the article "Dara says 2NE1 will reunite one day."

nadallyx89 Monday, April 3, 2017

Careful in here, theyre going straight to this article. Run... run away~
