TEDDY’s interview on 2NE1’s CRUSH: ‘Put so much though into it’
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, “Until now, many of 2NE1′s songs have been loved by the public, and as that continued on, it seemed that 2NE1 became synonymous with hit songs and we wondered if it was impossible for us to take on other challenges because of that. That’s why, even though this entailed a certain amount of risk, we decided that we wanted to make music that you can listen to for a longer period of time (i.e. as compared to hit songs that fit current music trends and are popular only for a while)”.
He added, “Lately, it seems that the music industry is full of ‘instant’ music, so the 2NE1 members, myself and the other producers have all placed an emphasis on making music that you can listen to.”
When asked on what his musical concept was, Teddy said“colourful music”. He said, “2NE1 has tried various genres such as electronic, hip-hop, R&B and reggae thus far. They will also be doing a variety of music this time around (for CRUSH). That said, (the variety) will not make you dizzy, instead you’ll feel that we naturally created the songs because it’s music that they are capable of doing.”
As this is the first album in many years, the preparation took that much time. He commented, “Among all the 10 songs that was selected (for CRUSH), there are songs that were made just 2~3 weeks ago. On the other hand, there are also those songs which we started working on from about 2 and a half years ago.”
The title song “COME BACK HOME” is identical to that of Seo Taeji 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, “Rather than ‘come back’, I like the feeling that you get when you hear of the word ‘home’. I came to realise how good the phrase ‘come back home’ is once again.”
TEDDY praised the producing skills of CL, who will showcase 3 of her own written and composed songs in Crush. “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’m the kind that’s always unable to predict (the outcome). The people who will be listening to the music will judge for themselves.”
But he looked greatly satisfied that the album encompasses 2NE1’s real talents and their colors. He explained, “when I saw the album itself, I think that you’re welcome to anticipate each and every single song. I hope you listen to it with the trust that they will be songs that will make your heart race.”

 2NE1’s CL Says Good-Bye to her ′Ideal Type′ Teddy
2NE1’s CL might be a bit sad to let go of her ′ideal type′ guy Teddy, who was reported to be dating actress Han Ye Seul, but she still sent her warm congratulations to the new couple.
In an interview with enews on November 25, CL said, “I had no idea that he was dating. But I want to congratulate him.”
CL had previously picked out Teddy to be her ‘ideal type’ more than once on television.
She said, “Teddy didn’t show any signs of change in the studio. We recorded songs and played around, as we always do. So I had no idea that he started dating.”
2NE1’s Park Bom also added, “I was so surprised. I don’t think that this would change anything in terms of his work, but we were just so surprised.”
YG Entertainment officially confirmed earlier on November 26 that Teddy met Han Ye Seul through a mutual friend 6 months ago and began dating her.
 2NE1 discuss Teddy’s recently revealed relationship with Han Ye Seul and their own dating status
YG Entertainment's chief producer Teddy has confirmed to be dating famous actress Han Ye Seul! 2NE1 discussed this revelation during their interview on November 25 as well as their own relationship status.
The girls were asked if they had known about his relationship and the girls all revealed that they had not.
CL said, “We see Teddy when we work in the studio and he is like a brother to us because we are always fooling around a lot … We were really surprised [when we heard the news]. There was almost nothing that had changed from the norm. Even when we were filming the MV, he checked over stuff like our clothes one by one and we thought nothing had changed so we were really surprised when something like that suddenly came to the surface.”
They then congratulated him with applause and “Congratulations.”
They were also asked about their personal dating status. CL said, “There’s nothing. I really want to date.” Facing her members, she asked, “[If you were to get a boyfriend] wouldn’t you want to say it?”
Park Bom said, “The way I see it, I think they are not coming to us because of Yang Hyun Suk. Maybe it is because he is such a big star so they are scared, but no one seems to come to us.”
Dara, who had asked their boss to repeal their dating prohibition, said, “I feel more bitter that there is no boyfriend even though it has been a while since the dating prohibition was repealed.”
CL said, “While it had not yet been repealed for me and Minzy, it had been repealed for the others, but nothing happened so I came to think, ‘Ah, even if it does get repealed, nothing happens.’”
Park Bom said, “It was said to have been repealed, but if we really dated someone, I think we would get in trouble by the boss.”
