Q: The ones who are labeled as the “second 2NE1,” Black Pink, debuted.
CL: I’m reminded of our old days when I see them promoting. I had thoughts that we used to work hard just like them as well.
Q: Did you sometimes give any advice?
CL: To be honest, I have to focus on myself and got my own things to worry about. I’m not in a position to offer advice to others.
Q: How do you feel when people say Black Pink is the “second 2NE1”?
CL: When 2NE1 first debuted, we were also labeled as the ‘second Big Bang.’ It’s only natural since we’re both from the same label. I believe it shows that we have a lot of influence so I don’t feel bad. Black Pink and 2NE1’s colors are very different.
2NE1 enriched my teenage years by giving me the confidence and strength to overcome difficult situations with their music. Although their time as a group is up, their legacy as the third most successful girl group in the world will fourever live on.
