Minzy Explains What 2NE1 Means To Her + Why She Agreed To Join “Sister’s Slam Dunk”

Like the saying goes, it’s important to never forget your roots.

“Sister’s Slam Dunk Season 2” kicked off with its first episode on February 10. Old and new members of the cast will be joining forces for another girl group project during the next few months.

During the broadcast, each of the cast members met with producer Kim Hyung Suk, who will be heading the project this time around. When it was Gong Minzy’s turn, he revealed that he personally was a huge fan of 2NE1. He asked the idol why she agreed to a girl group project, when she wanted to pursue a solo career.

“I definitely thought about how people might view me for ‘joining’ a new girl group after I left one to go solo, but I viewed [this opportunity] more as a chance to meet good people in my life. I thought that it would be fun to make memories with these people,” Gong Minzy explained.

As for 2NE1, the singer expressed her genuine hopes that the other three members would find immense success. Reminiscing about her time with the group, she said, “[2NE1] received so much love and support from the public. It defines my roots.”

Gong Minzy also revealed during the show that her original dream was to become a renown choreographer, and how she currently teaches at a dance academy.
