CL's U.S. debut receives explosive attention and anticipation from local media


Source: My Daily via Naver

1. [+1239, -57]  YG made the best choice by signing PSY into their company before he hit it big with Gangnam Style.  Though CL does have the skills for it, it's easier for them to advance into America largely thanks to PSY.  There's a lot of talk debating whether PSY is a world star or not but the obvious reality is he plays a big role in allowing our artists to expand overseas.

2. [+1040, -165]  Even if she doesn't make it big, don't you think she'll at least succeed? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ CL's really cool no matter how you look at her and 2NE1 is appreciated overseas

3. [+886, -112]  Well, she is the type that foreigners will like

4. [+693, -67]  It'd be great if she did well

5. [+676, -68]  Awesome!!!  CL, fighting!!!!!!!!

6. [+113, -19]  CL's stage presence is incredible at her young age.  She's someone you'll be proud of and won't be taken down no matter where she goes.  She has no problem with the language, her live is stable, and she has a suitable aura.  Why am I praising her to this extent?  Come back to me after you've watched her perform.

7. [+92, -15]  I don't know if she can rap all that well but the charisma and image CL gives off is honestly amazing.  I think they'll like her in the U.S. too

8. [+92, -21]  Since 2NE1 has a lot of hit songs under their belt, they still have a reasonable level of popularity in the U.S.~

9. [+76, -13]  Unnie come back here after you sweep out America♥

10. [+79, -20]  Foreigners aside from actual K-pop fans don't really like or aren't aware of our music.  However, there are a few stages that they've acknowledged like GD & TOP's 'Knock Out' stage and CL's 'MTBD + The Baddest Female'.  Foreigners were surprised that Korean artists could be like that after they saw those stages.  It will be hard and she might get hate since they still aren't familiar with her but I think there isn't any other Korean artist who can succeed as well as CL can over there right now.  For those saying that she can't make it big because they'll discriminate against Asians?  Then are we supposed to confine ourselves forever just because we're scared of that?  We should at least try and challenge ourselves.

This comment needs to be on top. Especially the last part is so on point. If you don't try then you'll never know what could have been.

Hopefully CL does well. If so hopefully she also brings 2ne1 along . Don't want them to break up :(

ine said...

better to try and fail rather than not try at all, right?

YES!! This is CL's motto right here...she isn't afraid to fail, she likes taking new challenges and that is what makes her so special.

Good luck girl! I know she says she wants to try this and doesn't think of failure and stuff. But I really want her to do well.
A lot of media has been praising her and raising anticipation indeed

true! and CL said it herself, she aint afraid to fail. at least she tried

"2ne1 is appreciated overseas"
YESSSS
"Unnie come back here after you sweep America"
NOOOO
I really want her to be hella successful...So I can see those bitchy netizen kissing her ass....They will rue the day they were being mean to her. Rue it I tell you

kissmeloveme said...

Ppl just have to remember that it's also up to the fans as well to help CL become successful in the U.S. make sure when her song comes out that we are requesting , buying, talking and watching hwr video. In america they count video views with where you chart on billboard. Foreigners can help too. So let's all work together in making CL debut a success.

Haha said...

Can CL make it big in america, then 2ne1, then rest of yg family? I really want to see them succeed so hard that knetz talk crazy shit about them online out of pure jealousy

guest said...

CL, unlike most Korean pop artists who tried debuting in the US, has a team that included people she personally established connections with. Admittedly the PSY - Scooter Braun deal somehow helped, but girl did a good chunk of networking herself. This isn't like SM/JYP/YG doing all the company negotiations with US producers/artists to have their acts debut there. That alone gives me a better feeling about this tbh, even if she's not going to "explode" in the music scene right away.

Anyway, CL's growth and potential was heavily mirrored in CRUSH. She might fail, but we all know that she's most definitely going to grow stronger after this entire experience. I still remember how people crossed her off when TBF happened, but just look at the quality of her input/vision after that. It's really impressive.

Riririr said...

This comment baffles me.
Foreigners don't even know kpop, they just know PSY.
You mean International Kpop fans like GD&Top stage?
Because you need to have some knowledge on kpop to divulge yourself into one.

[+76, -13] Unnie come back here after you sweep out America♥

How about NO???

Riyadh Prawiryo Att said...

Lol if CL success in U.S i believe she take ot3 to US, and make debut in US. I really hope CL and 2NE1 really big hit and famous in US and 2NE1 never comeback to SK

rin said...

Lol knetz finally kissing CL's ass after all the shit they made. Hmmmmmmm

weenxxx said...

...never comeback to SK

yes yes yes. i really want to see the time when knetz kissing 2NE1's ass begging them to back to Korea after slaying aroudn the globe. not to be delusional, 2NE1 is well known around the globe. SNSD is really big only in part of Asia, such as Japan. but in Philippines, 2NE1 is the most popular kpop group thanks to Dara's popularity there.

weenxxx said...

idk but i believe in their friendship. i believe CL won't never forger her other members T_T don't worry ^^

weenxxx said...

LOL. too many sure

don't worry darling, 2NE1 has a strong back up, CL. CL was their producer now. like GD. as long as CL was there with them, i believe 2NE1 won't be in hiatus for that long. YG always said that for Epik High, Big Bang and 2NE1, he left 100% to them on what they're gonna do next in group. so i don't think we should worry on that. and as we all know, CL is a very good leader. i believe she won't waste 2NE1's amazing talent just like that. and for now, she just want to try the new challenge. when you have passion, there will always a feeling to upgrade for something better. and i believe all of the members will support her and so do us :)

I hope her CD will be not only available in the US but Europe as well... in normal CD stores... ._. ♡ we have to stand together and support her as much as possible.

gdgom said...

Before the kpop hype, even people around me knows the song Nobody (even though they don't know who the singer is). Now we have Gangnam Style, but thanks to rapid growth of socmed, now mostly they even know who the singer is.

weenxxx said...

but its quite true tho . even me started knowing about Kpop because of Big Bang. in my situation, most people don't really knew much about Kpop. but some a famous radio in my country played 2NE1's song on their local chart music. same goes to BB releases Alive. most BB and 2NE1's fans in my circumstances aren't that eager kpop fans who knew about blackjacks, VIP, fandom, kpop fandom culture, shipping, etc. they just basically knew BB or 2NE1's song because let be honest most YG song aren't really the common Kpop song that we all familiar with. same goes to me, I only a fan of YG music. their music was different and good. what they do was just like them on Facebook, and watched their MV when they want to. they didn't knew about music show and whatsoever.

Kaila said...

I don't know whether she'll succeeds but I hope she will. She could make it big, her charisma is no joke. She just needs to release chart topping SONGS and she'll be fine. She has connections, right? She could collab with Rita Ora, Iggy (I love her tho) or others. I just hope that even after she succeeds, 2NE1 will still exists. Tsk, Park sisters are maturing (lol ok I'll just say they're getting older and should get married but they're only 31 y/o) but I still can't let go of my 2NE1.

ask_myname said...

2NE1 as a group can't promote at this time, so even w/o a US debut, she won't be doing that much with her the girls...as long as Bom's scandal is still there. So your point makes no sense.


And you forgot something... 2NE1's status was pretty bad in 2013 until "CRUSH" came in and slayed everything and CL was one of the big factor since she worked on half on the songs...w/o her, BJs would probably still waited for an album.

ygBIATCH said...

We should be united more than ever when CL debuts in America, blackjacks & yg stans! It depends on us if she'll succeed or fail. So let's not fight and help her become the queen she is! Let's do the same with 2ne1 too, once they debut in the US! Fighting! Blackjacks Nolja!

Nova_REMIX said...

This needs to be on NB. But of course they'll eat that statement alive because it's CL. Not their bias.

Riyadh Prawiryo Att said...

Its my dream and i hope it will come true

Whatever said...

I agree with the comment, but lately there's a huge interest in KHiphop over here. Recently, two articles were written about Bobby's MAMA performance with Dok2 and The Quiett on Noisey and Essence. Also Keith Ape's It G Ma is getting attention because it's pretty much a cover of U guessed It by OG Maco.

C.M said...

I really want my Ultimate Bias babyy to Succeed and shut the Haters mouths forever
But I'm not okay with some saying 2NE1 should leave Korea and focus only on overseas when they succeed !!
that doesn't make any sense yo

sue_ said...

She also said she'll be doing both. She isn't the type of person to drop them. If she says she'll do something, she'll do it. Dara's going into acting this year as well so that plus CL debuting in the U.S. will bring them some fans.

Guest said...

not to be blunt but.... the general U.S public knows about "Gangnam Style" but most aren't aware of K-Pop. they never even had an interest in Korean music after Psy's song. That last comment is exaggerating.

still wish her the best!

Leah888 said...

lol the way they say foreigners makes me feel like a alien ;O;

UGoGirl said...

I need her to leave 2NE1 so that I can stan her for good ! Slay a bit baby girl and don't appropriate anyone culture please .

Mushie said...

Her legs in dat pic ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

Black Panda said...

She already did. And she's all yours.

Nova_REMIX said...

And it aches them to see YGE succeed. They literally wait for their downfall.

UGoGirl said...

YAAAS but still bring me receipts please. Did YG announce their disbandment or have they going into a hiatus like 1TYM ?

Coffee said...

just wondering, does anyone have any articles or info about the "explosive attention" she received? i wanna see/read about the reactions in the us, too~

chocobanana said...

I hate how wonderful articles like these aren't translated in netizenbuzz when it clearly has a lot of upvotes but she translates the ones that give hate to cl instead..
