Earlier this year, the K-pop community was in utter shock when it was announced Minzy, the maknae of 2NE1, would be leaving both the K-pop idol group and YG Entertainment once her contract expires. This dire news hit Blackjacks (2NE1 fans) the hardest. As a result, they all rallied together through love letters of support and petitions, pleading with both Minzy to not leave 2NE1 and to YG Entertainment to step up and do what they can to keep 2NE1 from breaking apart. Unfortunately, the numerous possible reasons for why Minzy left 2NE1 outnumbered the reasons for her to stay.
As of today, since it is May 5 in South Korea, Minzy's contract with YG Entertainment has expired, and she is officially no longer a part of 2NE1. Still, she did not leave the K-pop community, especially Blackjacks, out in the dark. Instead, Minzy made her future plans known through a personal letter to her fans she uploaded on Instagram.
According to Soompi, at exactly midnight on May 5, Minzy took to her official Instagram to upload a picture of a personal letter she wrote to her fans. In it, she details her future plans as a soloist and even thanks her fans for all their love and support while hoping they continue to give such in her future endeavors.
