On February 26, 2NE1’s Sandara and Park Bom shared various photos from CL’s birthday party. The members of 2NE1 gathered to celebrate their leader’s 21st birthday. Along with photos from the party, Sandara uploaded a childhood photo of Chae Rin (CL’s real name) on her me2day.
Sandara wrote, “Congrats! CL’s Birthday. Happy birthday my Chae Rin. Uploading a photo of young Chae Rin. Doesn’t she look so innocent? Can you believe that such a little girl turned into one of the most charismatic people on stage?” In the photo, young CL wore a long white dress and held her hands together as if in prayer. Unlike the powerful, charismatic performer she is now, young CL looked like a soft, angelic little girl.
Netizens commented, “Thank you for sharing the photos, and thank you for celebrating CL’s birthday,” “Happy birthday Chae Rin!” “Long live 2NE1!” and more.
