Since their debut, 2NE1 has become one of the most respected girl groups in South Korea. Until 2016, the news of the disbandment of the girl group under YG Entertainment immediately shocked the public.
In an interview with AP Entertainment some time ago, CL revealed that 2NE1’s disbandment was also quite surprising. Not unlike Minzy, he also learned about the news through the media.
“I also knew about the news of 2NE1’s disbandment from the media. I was celebrating Thanksgiving when suddenly many people contacted me,” said CL in the interview at the time.
Now, CL is back discussing the disbandment of 2NE1 through a behind-the-scenes video of their appearance at Coachella. CL said the members were not given the opportunity to explain to fans about the company’s decision to disband 2NE1.
When I say ‘we’, that includes myself, my team, and my fans. The performance is for ‘we’ who made up the 2NE1 team and brand. For ‘us’, in my terms, it means a lot to me,” he explained.
By inviting the 2NE1 members to perform at Coachella with her, CL took the performance as a thank you to those who have supported her so far.
“That appearance is my way of thanking you. So I really hope that the public still remembers us. Being able to gather again and meet fans is an important thing for me,” said CL.
“We all go our separate ways. We also work with different managements, and we are also not in the same place from the start. So I want to give strength to them too,” he concluded.
