걸어 보기도 전에 달리기 시작해 걷는 법도 쉬어가는 방법도 모른 채 13년 동안 많은 걸 이루고, 많은 걸 느끼고 또 많은 걸 배우기도 했습니다. 저 자신을 여러분들과 나눌 수 있는 CL로 살아올 수 있어 행복했고, 또 여러분이 나눠주신 사랑이 저 자신을 다시 채워주었습니다. 13살 채린이처럼, 우리 할머니가 항상 해주시는 말처럼, 씩씩하고 당당하게. 누군가 선택해 주기를 기다리지 않고 다시 CL로 돌아가 하나씩 스스로 해나갈 거에요. 제가 경험한 시간과 추억, 그리고 감정을 함께 나눌 생각에 오랜만에 신이 나고 설렙니다. 이 세상 모든 CL을 위해. 사랑의 이름으로, CL

“I started running before I even learned to walk, so without knowing how to walk or how to rest, I achieved many things, realized many things and learned many things in the past 13 years.

I am happy living as a CL, who can share myself all of you and I can also heal myself with the love you all give. Like 13-year-old Chaerin, like my grandmother always tells me, with courage and confidence.

Without waiting for others to choose me, I will return to being CL and move forward, one step at a time. Thinking that I could share my experiences, memories, and feelings (with you guys), my heart was excited and melted for the first time in a long time.

For all CL in the whole world. In the name of love, CL.”

[+379, -68] There have been more than a few who have left YG already, what’s the point? It’s not like CL has been that popular since 2NE1 disbanded.

[+13, -9] Great, I wish her more, more success! Fighting!!!
