In a recent interview, they said, “2NE1 are a group of capable girls and they appeal to us.

Member Narsha also said, “Even though these friends are young, they are able to pull off their song with their own charms and capabilities. They also have their individuality and their own talents. Looking at them makes me look forward to their next performance.” -credit: k bites
2) Jay Park
How closely have you followed the K-pop scene as of late? Jay Park: “I don’t follow the K-pop scene very closely to be honest, ’cause I’m busy doing my own stuff. I look at the charts every now and then to see who’s on top, but that’s about it. As for songs, I like 2NE1’s stuff...”
–In a recent interview with the Singaporean site Kourier, Jay Park was asked a variety of questions. Among one of them included, “Looking at the current K-pop market, with so many idol groups out there, who do you think is/are the next big thing?”
After cracking a joke, Jay considers the question and gives a thoughtful response. “Let’s see… You know, I think 2NE1 will do really, really well throughout the world [with] the type of music that they’re doing and their style and everything. I think they will do well in many other countries besides Korea.” -credit: http://www.lp2ne1.com/2011/08/04/news-jay-park-thinks-2ne1-is-the-next-big-thing-110803/

4) Yoon Eun Hye

I think they have captured the hearts of the fans in their teens and 20s.” -credit: http://minsarang.wordpress.com/2009/07/20/news-yoon-eunhye-%E2%80%9Ci%E2%80%99m-a-fan-of-2ne1%E2%80%B3/
