2NE1 attended the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity on June 18 (Korean Time) which was held at the Claude Debussy Theatre. They held a seminar alongside Cheil Worldwide. 2NE1 spoke about the subject “Korean Wave Through Digital Wave.” They stated, “2NE1 still has a lot of things to show. We will change the world.”

CL was asked, if she ever feels the international popularity as a representative of K-Pop, she answered, “It was surprising to see international fans make cover clips on YouTube for our songs which are in Korean. Digital environments such as YouTube have removed national boundaries for our music.”

When asked about the secret behind the love that 2NE1 has, she replied, “I think international fans love 2NE1’s music video, performances, and music that contain the passion and energy of Koreans and also love for music.”

On the same day 2NE1 performed “Can’t Nobody.”

YG Entertainment stated, “At the end of the 2011, CL created a lot of buzz for her natural English on the BBC World main news program ‘NEWSDAY.’ During the seminar she also captivated the audience with her superb English.”
