2NE1 Interview Series – CL

“18 year old leader” speaks four languages… even composes
“we will show you our colors”

It seems like we are seeing a runaway train. After the 6 days debut, the top rookies in the women’s groups, 2ne1 who is grabbing all the charts is literally. No one knew the curiosity for the girls like their debut song <Fire> would arouse. CL, park bom, park Sandra, gong minji, cause higher interests than ever. Topics in the center line will introduce them one by one. The 18 year old, the 2ne1 rapper CL does not act her age, but gives the feeling of maturity. Although there are unnies, she is put in the role of the leader. The YG yang hyunsuk (representative) told the audience: “you have to watch them closely.”, but it was not a special order. It was three years ago that she has knocked on the doors of YG entertainment. She made a demo and infront of the YG entertainment and waited for few days. She put the CD inside Y hyunsuk’s hand and told him “you have to listen to this”, so she got to be known as the fearless singer. “I told you. With the confidence that came out of somewhere, and I said ‘you have to listen to this’ many times. I also threatened which were not threats about if you do not listen to this, ‘you will regret it’. When I reminiscence, I laugh thinking about where the confidence came from.” Inside the CD was CL singing and dancing to Beyonce’s <Dangerous in Love>. Of course, he contacted the girl who said ‘please find my talent’. After one week, YG contacted CL and she got the message that he wanted to see her perform one more time, and that’s how it started. She was born into a tight disposition. ( ? ) Following her father, from the 2 years old to second grade, she spent her life in japan, and after living in france, she was naturally developed into variety of cultures. Including Japanese, she is fluent in English and French. She is very interested in fashion and art. She is currently into the study of lyrics and also composing. “When I don’t have practice, I go to dongdaemoon and study the current fashion. I like unique things (clothes). I also wear clothes that I remake. (Sandra park who is next to me said while hitting me, ‘let’s tell everyone it can even be used on the cover of the next album‘) It is still embarrassing even to sing.” Her dream is that she will stand on a 2ne1 performing stage. “I have the most greed of showing everyone what our true colors are. I want our own concert soon. We can even show our own talents in the concert. I hope that day will come soon.”
