Today, two members from the girl group, Dara and CL reached out to Blackjacks addressing the devastating news.
CL assured the fans that they would always be one team and one family. Dara apologised for breaking their hearts.
CL’s letter was posted to Twitter.
In case you can’t read it, this is what it says:
I don't even know where to start but I just wanted to let you guys know that we are still here and we will always be one team, one family.
Minzy, Bom, Dara will all be doing great things on their own and I will always love and support them. And I hope you all know, YG, the members and I, we all really tried to make things work. I left everything behind and was in Korea all summer working on our album, but it fell apart... tough times...
What we have to remember is that we made amazing memories for the last 7 years together and I wouldn't have had it in any other way, with any other group of people. From 2NE1 TV, all the awards, all the shows.... you guys made it possible. You guys always had our back. You all are the most creative, loyal, classy, strong, fun, funny and the baddest fans anyone could ask for! I feel very blessed to have you guys in my life, on this journey, growing together and I am thankful every single day to have amazing fans like you support us doing what we love.
I love you I love you I love you
Missing you guys more than ever..

To my Blackjacks,
I never knew I would be writing such a letter. Firstly, I'm sorry to break your hearts, I'm sorry I couldn't keep us together, and I'm very sorry that I cause you pain. The past 7 years were really like a dream because of you guys, and it'll be remembered fondly with happiness. CL, Bom, Minzy, and I ... Us four will always be grateful and will forever treasure those times as good memories. The existence of Blackjacks always give us love, support, and protection. I wanted to give you guys good music in return, but I'm so upset and sorry that we can't... It hurts so much now, but let's cheer up. I hope you guys strengthen up and do well in all you do. My heart towards you guys will never change, and I'll work hard to always show a good side of myself. I can't express everything with just the words 'thank you,' but thank you so much for your excessive love.
November of 2016 will be remembered as the most lonely winter of all..
2NE1's cute vocal, Dara.
This is how Andy (and most of us feel about the disband):
