YG delays 2NE1's release date to avoid clashing with SNSD's?

Posted: 18 Feb 2014 05:30 AM PST

YG's Yang Hyun Suk is receiving mouthful of questions from 2NE1's fans for changing the online release date of 2NE1's second full-length album which is originally scheduled on February 24.

On February 13, a notice regarding 2NE1's album release was written like below:

2NE1's second full album will be released at 12 am on February 24th on online music sites. The album will go on sale offline the following week."

However, fans noticed that it was changed today without prior notice into this:

"When is 2NE1's 2nd full album release?
 2NE1's second full album will be released at 12 am on February 25th (Monday midnight going to Tuesday) on online music sites. The album will go on sale offline the following week."

Fans are throwing questions about the sudden change and assumed that it has been affected by SNSD's 'Mr. Mr.' release date which is February 24 that was announced today.

Therefore fans commented, "Did he just change the release date? I swear it was 24th!","SM should change SNSD to the 25th too..i wanna see what happens","YG is too desperate for that one day delay","Not a clean competition", "It seems like he doesn't trust 2NE1." and so on.

What do you think the reason of the delay? Are the majority of the fans correct?
