She was the main vocalist of the group. Just after their debut, they became the first rookie group to have won the grand award. Bom also managed to have a solo career along with her group activities. Her first solo song, “You & I” was one of the best-selling singles in the K-Pop industry. Things were really good for the group and for Bom.
But in 2014, she got entangled in a controversy when she received a parcel from her relatives in the US. The parcel contained amphetamine tablets. Bom has had a diagnosis of ADHD, and these tablets were prescribed to her by a doctor in the States. Nevertheless, the drugs were illegal in South Korea and hence cause a lot of scandals. Bom had withdrawn herself from any further activities. Soon after in 2015, 2NE1 had their last performance as a group on MAMA in Hong Kong. The group officially disbanded in 2016.
After much inactivity, she announced in 2018 about signing a contract with D-Nation.
