YG: 2012 About Big Bang, 2013 About 2NE1For YG Entertainment, 2012 was certainly about promoting Big Bang, putting out back-to-back songs with combinations of G-Dragon as a solo and the team as a whole. This year, YG seems to be employing a similar strategy. This time, YG is going all in on 2NE1.

Similar to how Big Bang paved the way for G-Dragon last year, CL is leading 2NE1 back to the land of K-pop with the release of her solo debut album, soon to be followed by 2NE1's comeback with a new song in June. Only time will tell whether the similar tactic will work out for two years in a row or not, but it will probably be successful. Why? Simply because it is 2NE1 we are talking about.

With CL having prepared the stage with her solo debut of THE BADDEST FEMALE, 2NE1 is reported to have pulled up their comeback date from July to June.

We were supposed to leave on the first flight out, but I pretended to lose my passport and spent the entire day taking care of my girlfriend.”

Sitting right beside Daesung was G-Dragon, who was hearing the story for the first time. He appeared speechless at first, but later nodded his head saying, “I understand. I’m going to lose my passport next time.”
