YG Entertainment has revealed that 2NE1‘s Park Bom is suffering from a severe flu, and that it may affect her performance at the ’2011 MAMA’, scheduled to be held on November 29th in Singapore.
“Up until departing for Singapore today, Park Bom had been suffering from a flu so severe that she was unable to speak at all for days,” said YG officials.
They continued, “Since it’s a year-end awards ceremony, and because 2NE1 has many fans who have loved and supported them this year, Park Bom has decided that she will on stand on stage. Due to her throat condition, however, we’re afraid that she may not be able to sing live at the event. Up until now, Park Bom has only performed live on stage; just to be safe, however, we took both the MR and AR versions of the song.”
If Bom’s throat doesn’t clear up before their official performance at the MAMA, 2NE1 will have no choice but to use the AR version of the song on stage, which will contain both the song’s melody and Bom’s studio-recorded vocals.
“We hope Park Bom’s flu gets better so that she can return to singing live for her fans,” the officials concluded.
In related news, 2NE1 has been nominated for the “Best Female Group” and “Best Performance” categories at this year’s MAMA.
