2NE1’s Minzy thanked SNSD members in the “Thanks to” portion of their full-length album, catching the attention of many netizens. In particular, Minzy thanked SNSD’s Sooyoung, Tiffany, YoonA, and Hyoyeon.
Even though 2NE1 and SNSD are rivals under different labels, the fact that they share such good friendships is very heartwarming.
Minzy, Hyoyeon, Sooyoung, Tiffany, and YoonA are members of 문미엔 (Moonmien), which stands for “Christian meeting for culture media entertainment workers”. It has small scale worships and prayer meetings, and other talents who attend are Jungjoon, Kim Junghwa, Yang Donggeun, Kim Soohyun, Ryu Won, and Choi Siwon.
Netizens showed positive response to this news, saying:
‘This is so unexpected coming from two competing groups’.
‘I am anticipating the friendly competition between the two groups’.
‘It’s so heartwarming to hear about the two group’s good friendship’.
‘Let us fans be on good terms just like the two teams’.
On the other hand, 2NE1 has been topping various charts even though their album was only released a few days ago. They have also matured, and showed a strong performance in their comeback stage on Inkigayo.
The translation of the highlighted parts are:
‘My cute friends IU, Luna!’
‘Sooyoung unni, Tiffany unni, Hyoyeon unni, YoonA unni’.
