Mr. YG is always debuting groups, putting them on hold, and letting them run wild like they're zoo animals. This applies to 2NE1 and Big Bang most. That's where I'm going with this post.
Big Bang are legends and they're an old group, so is 2NE1 which is why we've thought about the new groups as well. Mr. YG has that new girl group, he has iKon and he has WINNER as well so think about it like this....
Now, Sara is saying that because Big Bang and 2NE1's contracts end soon, they will both disband. Not at once, of course, but within a short time of each other. Then she says iKon will be the supposed "new Big Bang" and the girl group will be the supposed "new 2NE1". It makes sense. You can't deny it.
What I'm thinking is pretty similar. I think Big Bang will finish up MADE and then iKon will have more songs or Winner might possibly have a comeback, to me iKon is more likely though. After that I think 2NE1 will have a comeback and then Big Bang's disbandment will be announced. After 2NE1's comeback, they will disband and the girl group will be announced officially. It could also go like Big Bang finishes MADE, they disband, Winner come back, 2NE1 comeback, iKon comeback and official announcement of the girl group and then 2NE1's disbandment.
We could both be wrong, this is just our theory of things and it seems likely. We never know what Papa YG is doing. Of course all of this could be wrong and Sara and I are just dumb or we could be 100% correct. It depends on everything really. To be honest, nobody wants the legends to disband and everyone wishes to keep it all good but keep in mind their ages and what they are going through.
2NE1 have a lot going on. CL is already independent enough to go completely solo in Korea, Japan and America so she is fine. Minzy just opened her dance studio and there are rumors of her jealousy towards CL as well. Plus, Minzy does sing and she'll probably sing more if 2NE1 isn't together. Dara is an actress and she is getting rolls in web dramas like nobody's business! Dara also can try singing solo if she wanted to - remember guys, she has a solo song called Kiss. And Park Bom...We all know about Bommie. She was in the scandal and we haven't seen her since, she is also in her thirties so she is at the age of marriage. I wouldn't be surprised if 2NE1 agreed to disband at this point.
