Watch: 2NE1 Members Reunite For 11th Anniversary Via Video Call
CL has shared a heartwarming video of the 2NE1 members celebrating their 11th anniversary with a virtual reunion!
On May 16, CL took to Instagram to post an adorable clip of the members reuniting by video chat, writing in the caption, “HAPPY 11th 2NE1 X BLACKJACK DAY. Our members Bom, Dara, and Minzy; our BLACKJACK fans; and everyone who loves 2NE1, thank you always.”
In the clip, CL announces that it’s now their 11th anniversary before explaining why the video doesn’t match up with the audio. The singer reveals with a laugh, “I didn’t realize that I wasn’t recording this video.” She then prompts the other members to take turns saying something to their fans.
Park Bom begins by commenting, “I can’t believe 11 years have passed already. I feel a little emotional, and I’d like for us to actually reunite for real.” After a little run-of-the-mill group call chaos, she continues, “I hope all of the other members work hard [on their solo activities], and I’ll wait for you. I love you all.”
Sandara Park similarly expresses her love for her fellow 2NE1 members, declaring passionately, “You are all so precious to me, so precious. I love you so much!” CL responds, “Don’t cry! You’re not crying, are you?” After making sure that Sandara Park isn’t crying, she continues, “Let’s all meet up sometime soon, before your [musical] ends. And Minzy also has a new single coming out soon, so let’s also meet then.”
Minzy remarks, “Wow, it’s already our 11th anniversary. I’m now in my late twenties,” prompting CL to exclaim, “Oh my God.” Minzy goes on, “I didn’t know 11 years would pass by this quickly, but I’m glad that we’re able to be together like this. 2NE1 forever! I love you!”
Finally, CL says, “I’d like it if we could get together at least once a year, using our anniversary as an excuse, so I’m a little sad that we couldn’t meet up today. Let’s definitely get together before [Sandara Park’s] musical ends this month, and let’s also meet up to congratulate Minzy when her single comes out. And no matter what, since we started everything together—even though we’re apart, our fans have really been congratulating us a lot on our anniversary. Even though it’s been a long time since we’ve [promoted] together.”
CL gets audibly emotional as she goes on, “We’re always so grateful, of course. All of us. So how should we wrap this up? Happy anniversary to both 2NE1 and our BLACKJACKs.”
At Sandara Park’s suggestion, the four 2NE1 members then end the call with the group’s signature cheer: “2NE1, NOLZA [let’s play]!”
