Professor Lee Ki Jin of Sogang University, also the father of 2NE1's CL, opened up about having a top celebrity daughter during an interview with Chosun Ilbo

To the questions regarding his idol star daughter, Lee Ki Jin stated that he is rather jealous of her than he is worried. He also talked about CL's strong passion for her dreams as he said, "CL fell in love with dancing when she started learning jazz dance for fun in 6th grade. Then starting in 8th grade, she went to a practice room in Hongdae everyday and recorded herself dancing to the choreography she made."

He continued, "I didn't stop Chaelin when she went under YG Entertainment and declared she would drop out of high school. Being able to find something you love and are good at when you are only in your teens is very lucky. I thought that if she can't debut, then she can just open a clothing store." 


It seems like CL was able to achieve her dreams with the love and support from her cool father!

Wow, very open minded. Wouldn't expect that kind of support for dropping out from a professor. Glad he let her go for her dreams

cool dad.... cool dad.... there is life BEYOND education.  education is only a path to a goal you have.  if your goal... or what you're passionate about doesn't involve education... then so be it... don't let education get in the way~

I beg to differ. Tbh I never once seen school as 'hella important'. I think real teachings like manners and life skills are way more important. Sure if you wanna become a doctor or lawyer then school is hella important but if your ambition is to be a singer, athlete or whatever than you need to do whatever makes you one, not spend 10 hours studying and having no practice, Pursue your dreams so that you won't let yourself down.

Bom also went to Lesley University to major in psychology, but later transferred to Berkeley College of Music in Boston. And how can YG tell them what to do with their lives? If they focus on music more then so be it.

Anyone else notice that when CLesbo is downvoting everyone, Wang doesn't post. And when Wang posts, CLesbo isn't doing anything? Hmmmm.

FINALLY, someone is noticing that! Lol, I've noticed that a while ago. I'm almost positive Wanker and CLesbo is the same person. Their intelligence (or lack thereof) is pretty comparable. (: (I want out of the other thread, it's too long, lol, so I posted my comment here)
