Actress Honey Lee (also a former Miss Korea) appeared on the October 16 installment of SBS's 'One Night of TV Entertainment' to answer questions in a speed interview.
According to All Kpop, one of the questions asked was, 'Honey Lee almost became a member of 2NE1?'
She neither confirmed nor denied this claim. However, she explained that she has loved to dance and sing since middle school. so she went to a YG audition and became a trainee for about a year.
She said she would transform into a different person when she got to the dance practice room.
Perhaps if she had stayed as a trainee for a longer time, she might have indeed made the group.
