Watch: CL Shares Emotional Tribute To Her Late Mother In “Wish You Were Here” Music Video
On February 26, CL released the music video for “Wish You Were Here.”
The video is a tribute to her late mother. In early February, CL’s agency stated that CL’s mother, Hong Yoo Ra, had passed away from a heart attack in January while living abroad. The funeral took place in February with only family and close friends in attendance due to COVID-19.
On Instagram, CL wrote, “Every year, our birthdays should be in celebration of the Gift of Life our mothers gave us. This year, I made ‘Wish You Were Here’ for my mom, my family and anyone else who misses a loved one. If you love someone, tell them now.”
