2NE1 CL, "I Want To Quit Before We Become Too Boring"
By Staff Writer | July 11, 2012 09:59 AM EDT
2NE1 has finally come back. 2NE1 has always been known for their shocking music ad performances as well as their fashion. This time around was no different. They are the first girl group to mix trot with electronic to create the song, "I Love You." 2NE1 member Dara has also shown a shocking new image with her half shaved hairstyle. The members commented, "We like to try and challenge ourselves with new styles of music. We felt that this song would be able to appeal to both the younger and the older generation."

The group's oldest member, Dara and Bom recently received great news. YG Entertainment CEO, Yang Hyun Suk allowed for the two oldest members to be released from the no-dating rule. Dara commented, "Bom and I have been released, but because of our image, we are not able to date so easily. I don't know if anyone would want to date me now seeing I've shaved off half of my head."
It probably was not an easy decision for a girl member to shave off half of her head. Dara commented, "CL recommended it to me while we were at the office. I used an electric hair razor for the first time. I couldn't help but cry. I think this is how men feel when they shave their heads before going to the army." When asked why she didn't do it herself, CL commented, "I wanted to do this hairstyle, but someone pretty should do it. If I did it, I would look too strong, since I already have a not-so-pretty face."
2NE1 has always been seen on TV broadcast once a week. YG commented, "It takes a long time for our artists to perfect and create a performance. That is why we only come out once a week since it takes up a lot of time to make that one performance." Fans were sad that they were not able to see more of 2NE1.
CL added, "Since it takes us so long to prepare for one performance, we don't have the strength to prepare for 3 or 4 performances in one week. Also, performances on stage are what we and the people remember, so I think it's best that we work hard to create one perfect performance rather than a few mediocre ones."
2NE1 had 5 hit songs last year including "Lonely", "I am the Best" and others. This new song has also hit number one on the charts as well. They will begin their world tour, "NEW EVOLUTION" in July 28 and 29 and visit 10 cities of 7 different countries.
Global stars such as 2NE1, how long will they be together?
CL commented, "If our music and our image suddenly becomes boring and old, I think we are going to quit before that happens. If I can't pull the hearts of people any more, I don't want to do music anymore."
