It marked the first time that all 4 members of 2NE1 performing on stage together since Park Bom‘s year-long hiatus. Their performance also led to speculation that the group would be making a comeback soon.
Unfortunately, fans will have to wait a little longer for 2NE1’s comeback because the group’s talent agency YG Entertainment has firmly denied all the allegations.
In a report by Soompi, YG Entertainment’s rep told Korean media outlet MyDaily that “there are no plans for Park Bom’s comeback yet”.
The rep added:
The MAMA stage was a surprise present for fans. For the time being, there won’t be any new songs by 2NE1, and we will be focused on CL’s solo promotions.
Fans then began to speculate that the “Who’s Next” poster that was posted on 4th November referred to 2NE1’s comeback. At one point, various major media outlets also confirmed the news about 2NE1’s rumoured comeback after a digital music distributor told Korean media outlet Maeil Kyungjae that 2NE1 would be releasing a new album. However, the poster was eventually revealed to be referring to leader CL‘s solo comeback.
2NE1’s performance at the 2015 MAMA marked Park Bom’s first appearance on stage in a year and 5 months. She seemed nervous during the performance, but she successfully performed “I Am the Best” and “Fire” with the other members of 2NE1.
