In light of 2NE1’s recent disbandment, Soompi reports that CL opened up after keeping silent for a long time. The K-Pop artist said how she will always prepare herself for a possible reunion.

“If we want to sing Fire 20 years later, we’ll have to be fit. As you know, our songs are hard to sing,, and the choreography is hard-hitting. I’ll be ready,” she said.

Talking about her wishes, CL reveals how she wants 2017 to be the year she finally releases her own album. “I would like it if fans weren’t in too much of a hurry and waited for me. I’ll repay everyone with a great album. I’ll do a lot of promotions,” she said.

She even recalls that during her auditions for YG Entertainment, she gave record producer Yang Hyun Suk a demo tape and told him how she wanted to be a pop star in America.

“I was 15. Truthfully, it’s not [debuting in] America that’s important, but I grew up with pop music because of my dad. Pop is what has influenced me the most in my musical career. I fostered my dreams listening to pop music, and I want to do pop music in the U.S.,” she explained.
