Accordingly, SBS quoted the group in an interview addressing the issue. Apparently, the hoobae group has no problem being compared to CL, Dara, and the others. In fact, they expressed that they aim to follow them as they represent the same colors of YG Entertainment.
“We don’t purposely try to be different from 2NE1. It’s actually a big part of us that we’re compared to 2NE1. We don’t want to show a different color than them because we believe they portrayed the color of YG,” says the K-pop singers.
Apparently, the hoobae group admires the 2NE1’s “charisma, stage presence, and how they represented YG.” However, they would also like to carry the agency’s name in their own different way.
We also want to show YG’s color in our own, unique way. We think it’s good for us to follow them as much as we can. When you see their performance, 2NE1 are sunbae with overflowing charisma. We want to be shown like that on stage too,” they added.
