After a long wait, it's finally happening for the BLACKJACKS (2NE1 Fandom)! Former 2NE1 member, Dara, reveals that she will have a "hot solo" coming and wants her fans to brainstorm a fandom name!
Dara Reveals Upcoming 'Hot Solo' + Fandom Name in the Works
On September 16, Dara posted a 41-second video, announcing her upcoming solo and she also asked her fans and the Blackjacks for a separate name for her fandom. She also asked them to write their ideas in the video's comment section and she will pick one.
If ever she doesn't pick from the comments, she will brainstorm her fandom name instead.
Is 2021 the Year for All 2NE1 Members to Release Their Solo?
After Dara's upcoming solo announcement, fans expressed to Twitter their excitement for the K-pop idol's project. The hashtag "#DARASOLOISCOMING" is now trending on Twitter.
Some fans even made a collage with the other 2NE1 members' solo album art, but left Dara's spot with the question: "Dara solo is coming????"
Some even coined the term "202NE1" for this might be the year that all of the former 2NE1 members will release their solo.
This year, three of the former members of 2NE1 have already released their singles, starting with Park Bom with her "Do Re Mi Fa Sol" which premiered on YouTube last March 31.
Minzy came next with her "Teamo" which was released on July 11. The latest member to release a single is CL with her "Spicy" which was released last August 24.
