After being excited about the possibility of a 2NE1 reunion on JTBC’s Stage K just earlier this month, 2NE1’s Sandara Park has now begun to lower Blackjack’s expectations of that reunion happening any time soon.
In a series of Instagram comments, Dara has effectively let Blackjacks know that now isn’t the right time for a 2NE1 reunion. In repsonse to a fan asking to “make 2NE1 happen again,” Dara simply responded “maybe not now [praying hands emoji]”
Replying to another fan’s comment she assured Blackjacks that 2NE1 still loves them, but that a reunion will have to wait until “when the right time comes”.
190423 Dara recently replied to a comment on Instagram.
Dara: "Exactly. I just want you guys to know that we love you very much. We (2NE1) love Blackjacks & don't want to hurt you. Let's just enjoy life and when the right time comes, that's it!!! Maybe, someday." pic.twitter.com/0QhBu2eavD

Fans have been growing ever more curious of a 2NE1 reunion in the weeks leading up to Park Bom‘s Dream Concert appearance and 2NE1’s 10th Anniversary. Blackjacks hoped that the group would be able to celebrate together on stage once more, but appreciate of Dara’s honesty.
My heart hurts but I appreciate dara being honest to us and communicating in a way (despite many factors that might not allow her to say it directly) but damn if not now, then when will be the timing right

This sudden change in tune from the ever-hopeful Dara has fans now speculating that 2NE1’s label to which both Dara and CL are still signed, YG Entertainment, has something to do with it.
YG Entertainment is scared of the impact of the monster artists that they have created which is 2NE1.

While now may not be right time, Blackjacks have vowed to never stop patiently waiting for the right time while supporting each members’ solo activities.
This is my agenda for now y’all.
– Support and promote Bom’s comeback to the fullest cause she’s actually releasing content for us!
– support and encourage Minzy to push out music with higher quality scale and production.
– let Dara do her thing and relax.
– CL anything pls.
