CL of 2NE1 on the Philippines: 'I wish this was my hometown, too'


052114-CL_main.jpg2NE1 group member CL remarked that she was totally ecstatic to be performing for their Filipino fans as they celebrated their fifth anniversary. "First of all, I feel so blessed. Well we're very happy to be here. We don't know why it took so long to get here, but we are happy to be here. I love you so much,” she said during the open presscon of 2NE1 in the Philippines.

The Korean pop star shared that their trip to the country has truly been fun. “It was definitely a very fun experience and you know we want to come out in some TV shows here, we would love too,” CL stated.

She shared that spending time with their fans is always her favorite part during their tour. “When we are on tour you know we get to make a lot of memories with our loving fans, that's the best part.”

CL is looking forward to be making more music with the 2NE1 girls in years to come. “You know what they say, girls just wanna have fun. So I hope we could just enjoy music together and have fun.” When asked where the strength as a group of 2NE1 comes from, CL relayed, “Well, we have very different styles, even when it comes to music, fashion, everything, even in our character so the whole mixture of that I think is the best part of us.”

In the All or Nothing concert of 2NE1 in the Mall of Asia Arena last May 17, the Korean girl group celebrated their fifth anniversary with thousands of fans. Dara (also known as Sandara Park), who shot to stardom in the Philippines after joining Star Circle Quest before flying to Korea for good, extended her gratitude to their thousands of supporters who attended the concert. “Sige i-celebrate natin ang fifth year anniversary namin. I am really happy to celebrate our fifth anniversary in our second home, the Philippines,” she said.

CL commented. “I wish this was my hometown too.” CL attributed their success to their supporters, saying, “We never could have made this far if it weren’t for you guys. The fifth anniversary is all because of you.”
