Teddy Park talks about his role in 2NE1’s new album, CRUSH, and gives a deeper insight behind the making of the album.
YG Entertainment’s producer TEDDY, aged 35, said 2NE1’s 2nd full album CRUSH will be a “long-loved” music.
On the phone interview with Star News on Feb 26, TEDDY sounded confident about 2NE1’s upcoming full album that is to be released at 12 am, which is 0 hour of Feb 27.
He said, “2NE1 has been loved with many songs, but being unable to stray away from those hit songs can hinder them from going further,” and, “So despite the risks, we decided to create a song that will last.”
He added, “There are so many ‘instant’ songs these days, and I and 2NE1’s members and other producers decided to focus on a song that will last.”
When asked the concept of music, he said, “It’s colorful.” “2NE1 was able to showcase electronic, hip-hop, R&B, reggae and more, and the latest one is also a mixture of many. But it doesn’t look messy. It naturally blends all the different kinds of music 2NE1 can take in.”
As this is the first one in many years, the preparation took that much time. He commented, “Out of 10 songs, some were produced in 2 to 3 weeks, while other ones took 2 and a half years.”
The title song “COME BACK HOME” is identical to that of Seotaeji and Boys, a group of which YG’s founder YANG HYUN SUK was a member. “It has a hint of reggae with melody. It’s sentimental.” When asked why it’s named the way it is, he said, “I liked the word HOME more than COME BACK. I realized how good this phrase is.”
TEDDY extolled the producing skills of CL, who will showcase 3 of her own written and composed songs. “There are only 3 in this album, but there are about 20 songs she wrote and composed. She works very quickly and produces good music. She does this despite her young age. She’s very talented. She often shows me her songs, and I can say for sure that she is good at producing and she possesses her very own musical mind.”
When asked how 2NE1 would do with the latest album, his answer was modest. “I often fail to predict correctly. The listeners will judge the album.”
But he looked greatly satisfied that the album encompasses 2NE1’s real talents and their colors. He explained, “You can have your expectations high for each song in the album. We put so much thought into them, so I hope people trust us when they listen to the songs.”

Under the cut
I’m all for privacy and I respect Teddy’s decision to keep his life and his loved ones out of the media. I am not sure what pushed the relationship to be publicly announced either. Like I said before, I assume it was agreed on by both parties. YGE might have pressured them to make the announcement maybe for publicity or smth, we will never know!
Hi!! Sorry this is so terribly late
A lot of videos on youtube are broken into parts and most have been deleted. The best I can give you is if you search youtube/dailymotion/youku(chinese site) for 1TYM concert videos. Most will probably be in 240p so not the best quality either =/

ohhhh ok I understand what you’re saying. Yeah you know having agencies hide relationships can have that cold effect but i can somewhat empathize wit them for hiding. The way certain fans act so possessive over let’s say, the idol they love the most being in a relationship, is beyond ridiculous and i feel they hide for a safety which is so messed up because they’re people!!! like u n me!!! who can love and be in relationships like anybody else or not be if they dont want to. So actually getting this information of han yeseul and teddy dating is nice and it seems both parties consented to the release of this info. The reaction has been overly pleasant but again for idol in the spotlight, having a public relationship does so much damage to both of the ppl involved it may be another factor as to why idols continue to date in private

I’m fine with it! I’m very happy for them both! It’s finally nice to get a clear answer for once as YG’s always covered in mystery. I wonder why do you feel that way if youre comfortable sharing?
