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 achieved a lot of things, realized many things, and learned many things in the past 13 years because I started to run before I even learned how to walk, and didn’t know how to rest.
I was happy to live my life as CL, being able to share myself with everyone, and I was also able to heal myself with all the love everyone gave me.
Like the 13 year old Chaelin, my grandmother always told me, bravely and confidently.
I will return to being CL and move forward on my own, step by step, without waiting for someone else to choose my move.
The thought of being able to share my experiences, memories, and feelings with everyone is making me excited and my heart beat with joy for the first time in a long time.
For all of the CL’s in the world.
In the name of love,
CL will be releasing her first album since leaving YG Entertainment starting on December 4. Her project album In The Name Of Love will contain a total of 6 songs. 2 songs will be released each week, spanning 3 weeks.
