LOOK: 2NE1 members reunite to celebrate 10th anniversary
MANILA, Philippines – After disbanding in 2016, the members of 2NE1 – CL, Sandara Park, Gong Minzy, and Park Bom finally reunited to celebrate the 10th year anniversary of the iconic girl group.
The 4 got together for a small gathering, shared a cake, and stunned Blackjacks by going live on Instagram Friday, May 16, to mark the occasion.
They also shared some photos from the gathering. In her message, Sandara wrote: "Back in 2009, the 4 of us in 2NE1 were excited on what the world had to offer. We didn’t expect that we would be given the best fans in the world. We didn’t expect that we would have fans in many parts of the world."
"To countries who don’t speak and understand our language. We are very grateful that Blackjacks embraced us. And because Blackjacks were everywhere, we were able to go to different countries. To places we only see on maps. 10 years later, you are still here for us. Through joys and tears. Even when we had drastic hairstyles and outrageous stage costumes, you still loved and supported us. I can’t believe how much you mean to us – 4 Korean girls who just wanted to perform onstage. We can’t thank you enough for the love. How we all wish we can thank each one of you and give you a hug. But I hope this message would be enough for now to show you how much Blackjacks mean to us. Thank you. I love you," she said.
The celebration shared online with fans left many Blackjacks in tears. They shared the emotions they felt on social media as they watched the 4 together again, as Twitter became the venue for a Blackjack reunion as well.
Formed in 2009, 2NE1 became one of Korea's top female groups and has been recognized in other parts of the world as well. – Rappler.com
