Yang Hyun Suk also said, ““Big Bang and 2NE1 are both at points where they’re most united since their debut and are in the best state to do their music.” He continued, ” Personally, I think I would like to give both groups 100 points out of 100 points for their new songs.”
“I’m more at ease with 2NE1 especially. 2NE1 has always been successful with releasing good songs. They’re a team that has already obtained recognition with regards to their strengths and also their fashion. Their comeback this time around is certainly worth anticipating.”
