Yang Hyun Suk shared that 2NE1 and Girls’ Generation’s comebacks at the same time were of help to both groups.
On the March 15 broadcast of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Entertainment Relay’, 2NE1 sat down for an interview through which CL shared, “‘Come Back Home‘ is a meaningful song because our CEO performed a song titled ‘Come Back Home’ during his Seo Taiji and Boys days.”
Their CEO Yang Hyun Suk was also interviewed and asked, “I heard that you participated in making the choreography [for ‘Come Back Home’]. Is that true?” Yang Hyun Suk shared, “If you listen to ‘Come Back Home’, you can’t help but think about Seo Taiji and Boys’ ‘Come Back Home’. So the choreographer and 2NE1 members thought it would be nice if their CEO, who made the choreography for the original ‘Come Back Home’, helped out and an idea came to me so I helped out.”
Yang Hyun Suk also opened up about the girl group battle between 2NE1 and Girls’ Generation, sharing, “It was a time when 2NE1 needed to release an album and by coincidence, Girls’ Generation also made a comeback. I think of it as a competition in good faith and I think it is a period that is helping both groups.”
When asked, “When you compare 2NE1 to Girls’ Generation, what do you think 2NE1 is better at?” Yang Hyun Suk shared, “CL participated in the writing and composing this time and their music colors are different so rather than feeling like this album was a success among the public, I thought to myself that we can keep going further [with their potential].”
