To celebrate their return of their first full length album after 4 years, 2NE1 sat down for an interview with several journalists for their comeback with 'CRUSH' making them share their thoughts.

The girls have received a lot of achievements with their return, not only domestically but also internationally, making them get a record-breaking spot in the Billboard 200.

The girls' shared, "It is our first full length album in 4 years, and different from our 1st album it contains completely new songs so it feels as if we actually put out our first full length album now. We are really enjoying the fact that we can show you a lot of new songs and stages, so we've been able to quench our thirst that has been building up as there is a lot that we've been wanting to show you. When we had our first world tour, we felt some regret as there was no new music to show on stage. So to make our comeback with a full length album, we feel happy."

Since CL has been on-hand with a lot of songs in this album, she stated, "I started composing last year. I really never imagined 2NE1 as a whole would sing the songs I made. It started when I just wrote songs as if I was writing a diary. I am grateful as well fascinated that it all progressed so naturally and fast. There are more songs that I have written up, but the songs that matched the best with 2NE1 were included in this album. It was something I started just for fun, but Yang Hyun Suk boss even diligently checked up on it. 'CRUSH' was the title of the song I wrote, but he even made it into the name of the album, so I was really touched."

It is known to many that 2NE1 has been having head-to-head promotions with another popular girl group, Girls' Generation.

Because of that the girls mentioned, "Starting a year ago, we had the world tour scheduled for March, and to be able to show new music stages on the tour, we had originally planned for a comeback at the end of February. As Girls' Generation are our sunbaenims, it's so cool to see them actively promote in various fields for a long time. We want to be like that too. Rather than comparing or calling it a competition, we sincerely cheer on the power of girl groups. We want to see a lot of these groups and see us all do well together. As our promotions are overlapping, we saw their stage and felt that our colors and Girls' Generation colors are different. They are showing a stage that we can't do."

Reporters have also brought up about their dating life since Girls' Generation's few members have came out dating.

CL answered with a grin, "And it's White Day today too... We recognize that we're quite behind in the dating aspect compared to Girls' Generation." Dara hilariously added, "Let's try to catch up!" while Park Bom lamented, "It seems like there just isn't much opportunity to date."

With their very flexible ways in music, the girls' were asked about their unique music style.

"We don't think there will be a group quite like 2NE1. There wasn't one before and we don't think there will be one like us. Whether people consider 2NE1 good or bad, we can say confidently that there is no group like us. If our color was red for example, if we tried to be blue instead, we'd feel a burden and we wouldn't be able to last. If we are red, then we have to express that red more vibrantly," the girls responded.

To their future plans, they said, "We don't know what it would be. Whether it's a time of growth or a time of risk, it seems like they just suddenly come upon us without us expecting it. Whatever it is, we think it is most important that we take it moment by moment and get through it. We finally think we have figured out how to sing and enjoy the stage. We want to do this for a long long time. And since we don't come out on TV that often and don't have many opportunities to interact with everyone, we want to express 2NE1 news, thoughts, and hearts through interviews at least."

With their upcoming world tour, the girls mentioned, "We have won #1 on music programs and experienced various other things, but there is nothing more fun than a concert. Our goal is to wrap up our second world tour in Korea as an encore concert. People will only come if we promote our hardest with 'Crush' right? We want to meet with many fans at our concerts," the group said with a smile.

It looks like the girls have been getting lots of support for "Come Back Home" has already gotten the 5 million mark.

Congratulations 2NE1!
