The pambansang krung krung is the current host of Idol League along with BTOB's Seo Eunkwang and in a recent episode, K-pop girl group EVERGLOW made a special appearance. The idols talked about their supposed debut name, with EVERGLOW's leader E:U saying that they were called Ultra Violet before.
On the other hand, Eunkwang was laughing when he mentioned that his group was supposed to be called Arirang or Sonic!
Of course, Dara also shared her story: She revealed that 2NE1 almost debuted as Tsunami, if not YG Girls (named after their agency, YG Entertainment). LOL! How does "Annyeong haseyo, Tsunami imnida!" (Hello, we are Tsunami!) sound to you?
ICYDK, 2NE1 actually means "New Evolution of the 21st Century," a fitting name for the girls who made big waves in the K-pop industry. They debuted in 2009 with "Fire" and went their separate ways in 2016. The last song they released was called "Goodbye." BRB, my eyes are sweating.
No worries for Blackjacks (their fandom) though—Dara, CL, Bom, and Minzy would often mention and show their love for each other on social media. They also had a *reunion* earlier this year via video call, and got together in 2019 for the 10th anniversary.
