After laying low in her appearances in the Korean entertainment scene following her drug controversy that erupted on June, 2NE1 member Park Bom is slowly making her comeback.  

On August 15, the oldest 2NE1 member with the 4D personality joined her group mates and performed at the YG Family Concert in the AIA Real Life Now Festival.

2NE1 performed their hit songs “Fire” and “Crush” wherein Park Bom was seen belting out her powerful voice and performing with the usual energy that she has always had. She performed in front of 10,000 fans who loudly clapped and cheered for them and other YG Family artists.

After the two songs, the girls had a chance to talk to the crowd. 2NE1 leader CL grabbed the mic and said, “We enjoy that we’re back and performing here in Seoul. It’s been a while. We prepared really hard.” Then, Park Bom greeted everyone and said, “I’m Park Bom. I really missed you a lot.” Minzy followed, “The response is good. Let’s fire up this heat!”

A lot of fans were worried about Park Bom who has made her first appearance in the concert after staying silent following her controversy. However, Park Bom had on a bright expression on her face and went on with the performance as if nothing happened, giving her fans an assurance that she is doing okay.

Apart from 2NE1, YG Entertainment artists PSY, BIGBANG, Epik High, Lee Hi, Akdong Musician, and the newly-debuted Winner performed for five hours at the YG Family Concert.
