CL also wrote,
"To my Blackjacks,
I never knew I would be writing such a letter. Firstly, I'm sorry to break your hearts, I'm sorry I couldn't keep us together, and I'm very sorry that I cause you pain. The past 7 years were really like a dream because of you guys, and it'll be remembered fondly with happiness. CL, Bom, Minzy, and I .. Us four will always be grateful and will forever treasure those times as good memories. The existence of Blackjacks always give us love, support, and protection. I wanted to give you guys good music in return, but I'm so upset and sorry that we can't... It hurts so much now, but let's cheer up. I hope you guys strengthen up and do well in all you do. My heart towards you guys will never change, and I'll work hard to always show a good side of myself. I can't express everything with just the words 'thank you,' but thank you so much for your excessive love.
November of 2016 will be remembered as the most lonely winter of all..
2NE1's cute vocal, Dara."
I don't even know where to start but I just wanted to let you guys know that we are still here and we will always be one team, one family.
Minzy, Bom Dara will all be doing great things on their own and I will always love and support them. And I hope you all know, YG, the members and I, we all really tried to make things work. I left everything behind and was in Korea all summer working on our album, but it fell apart... tough times...
What we have to remember is that we made amazing memories for the last 7 years together and I wouldn't have had it in any other way, with any other group of people. From 2NE1 TV, all the awards, all the shows.... you guys made it possible. You guys always had our back. You all are the most creative, loyal, classy, strong, fun, funny and the baddest fans anyone could ask for! I feel very blessed to have you guys in my life, on this journey, growing together and I am thankful every single day to have amazing fans like you support us doing what we love.
I love you. I love you. I love you.
Missing you guys more than ever..."
?? ?????... The announcement last friday was very painful to ALL of us. But the past 7 years has been filled with good and wonderful memories I will treasure forever. We - CL, Bom, Minzy, and I - will always be 2NE1. And you will always be our loyal, supportive, and loving BLACKJACKS!!! That will never, ever change. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. - Dara of 2NE1
