YG Ladies Group 2NE1 “21st Century New Evolution”

Since we’re still on the Lollipop frenzy mood until the MV comes out, here’s the real meaning of the name 2NE1


YG has officially decided not to use “To Anyone,”since that is already being used by the artist 21 (To Anyone).

He said, “I’m so sorry to 21. We did not check in advance if anyone else had the name.” This is not something to complain about, btw. An artist already had that name so it really isn’t fair.

2NE1 will be their official name. “NE” stands for New Evolution, and the “21″ also stands for the 21st century. Therefore, 2NE1 will be the new evolution of the 21st century.

YG also said, “2NE1 will be introduced as a female group with always having new challenges with a new form of music.

A YG rep said, “2NE1 will formally debut in May, and have been preparing for 4 years for good songs and activities this year.”

  1. I just cant wait for them!!!..and oh!,,they’re still “21” right? w/ the meaning of never lose and fresh music?..but now their english name is 2NE1 which stands for 21st century new evolution?..ok.. still a bit confuse..is it formally just 2NE1 or its still 21(2NE1)??.. 😦 sorry still confuse.. 😦

  2. @J-G-RILEEN

    yup it can be confusing sometimes. just take it this way, just take 21 as their group nickname. they will known as 21 or 2NE1 eitherway.

  3. OH okay, thats much better..helps..thanks momo 😀

  4. actually i like the new name better ^^
    i can’t wait for their debut!!! :DD

  5. i hope the girls will get lots of love dispute their name confusion. i’m somewhat kinda upset that this has to happen. someone or YG isn’t paying too much attention in their company. greeting fans with confusing schedules..i’m just a lil’ annoyed with bb’s schedule. the clock is ticking;;; GRAAAGGGA!!!!

  6. oh well…the name looks WAY BETTER NOW. ^^

  7. Kind of confused…but the previous meaning and this meaning are both still cool. 2NE1 fighting!!!

  8. wait..so is it still pronounced to anyone? xDD
    omgg lol im confused aha

  9. “‘NE’ stands for New Evolution, and the “21″ also stands for the 21st century. Therefore, 2NE1 will be the new evolution of the 21st century.”

    AAAAAAAH <3!!! i love their new meaning of the name, its so fierce ;D *watched too much project runway; hahah*

  10. I’ll just say this…love the 2NE1, and as long as the FanClub name is “blackjack” and all the other stuff i said in terms of member designations/recognitions, etc etc etc, check allkpop.com; we good!!! BIGBANG/2NE1 FIGHTING! FIGHTING! FIGHTING!


    comments #67 on page 2, and #150 on page 3 😀

  11. 2NE1 … unique name …
    i think i’m gonna like them all ..
    i’ve watched lollipop CF and the song and they’re good .

  12. i like this name better than 21 (to anyone). this is alot deeper, and it sounds so cool, too! :] 2NE1. im really likeing it 😀
    and btw i dont think is a new form of music, though. i mean, seriously, a girl big bang, new form of music? be realistic! lol… no offnese or anything though. i still love it.

  13. Whoooohooooo
    Big Bang + 2NE1 = ❤

  14. wow~~ finally is all clear ^^’ i hope they don’t change their minds about the groups name

    2NE1 i like that name ^^

  15. i don’t understand =]]
    because i’m from Vietnamese :”>

  16. i love the new name!!!go 2ne1!!!!!!
    can’t w8 on ur first album….

  17. go sandara…we love you…i kinda like park bom…love u all…hqahahaha/…

  18. Up for Sandara!

  19. okay… i have a bad feeling about this. I think this is the start of the FALL of big bang! GD’s going to produce music for them which means, he ownt be concentrating on big bang as much! argh! and come on. NEW MUSIC? when they’re the female version of big bang???

  20. sandy!!!!!!!!!finally i can see my idol again!!!!!! Mahal ka pa rin namin sandy!!!

  21. oushi88: omg i totally agree. if you saw my comment, it sounds kinda like yours. lol. except its… more positive. i still like their songs and all, but its just not new. its just basically biting off big bang. makes me feel like theyre such followers. but i guess yg did that.

  22. i really like their new name ‘2NE1’ kk
    Sandara+CL+Minji+Bommie Go Go!

  23. so 2NE1 is still pronounced “21”, rite?

  24. its a pretty sweet name, even tho its now “2NE1 (new evolution of the 21st century)” it still kinda refers back to their original name. the name can sound like all those. if spelled out 2 N E 1 sound like “to anyone” and say this really fast it becomes 21 or..the other way around. especially to those ppl that never heard about the band, they probably will interpret it as probably one of those? i don’t know just thinking out loud to myself…

  25. oooh. I like the new name! 2NE1.. so much meaning to the name
    I’ll be supporting this group! I can’t wait for them to debut already..
    SNE1 fighting! 😀

  26. Great Website! Would you mind checking out mine? Just click my name. Thanks! 😀

  27. I think they look okay I guess. I’ve never been a fan of girl groups…I hope they don’t get too close to Big Bang! Big Bang is fine the way they are!

  28. They look okay…hope they don’t get too friendly with Big Bang! Big Bang is amazing by themselves! They should stay the way they are!

  29. their fanclub should be called “blackjack”!
