It's a sad day for 2NE1 fans! The youngest member of the group, Minzy, has chosen not to re-sign with YG Entertainment.

Minzy (공민지) has decided not to re-sign with YG Entertainment, where she is the fourth member of 2NE1. The girls' contracts are up in May, and the rest of the members have agreed to re-sign.

2NE1 has been on a two-year-long hiatus, save for one performance at the 2016 MAMA Awards in Hong Kong. In the meantime, Minzy has been on Instagram with shots of her dancing and her connection with her church community.

The group's leader and main rapper, CL, is currently preparing for an "imminent" U.S. debut. 

2NE1 will be making a comeback as a trio this summer.

What do you think? Does this surprise you at all?
