in a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar, The South Korean singer-rapper touched on the “styling experience” of iconic girl group 2NE1 and how the group defined its image under a major label, YG Entertainment, in comparison to today’s K-pop idols.

“Now things are done through the major label system, but at the start of 2NE1, it was very organic,” she said. CL explained that when he first started out, he and his fellow bandmates were able to engage in open conversations about the style and look the group wanted to go with.


“There were very few people in the companies,” she explained. “It would be me and my creative director, and we were all friends, and we were in the studio looking for references that we liked and that.”

She also said that because there was a “connection” between the group and their stylists – such as Daniel Lee and XIN – that made it “easy to take risks” with their image.

“At the time, performance was the main point, so we were on stage wearing sneakers, which I didn’t know would be such a big deal for a girl group in Korea.” “We were just ourselves, and it happened to set us apart from other groups.”

CL dropped their debut studio album, ‘Alpha’, in October, which included singles such as ‘Tie a Cherry’ and the English-language song ‘Lover Like Me’. The album also includes their 2020 releases, ‘HWA’ and ‘5 STAR’.
