While talking about her advancement in America, CL said, "Actually, it is my personal opinion. It was hard. I didn't even know that it was hard. I just realized it recently. I wanted to go until the end, and wanted to take the responsibility... (crying) Oh my, I am crazy..."
Taeyang then said, "Realistically, what CL is doing is very hard. When I talk to her on the phone, you can hear how difficult it seems. It's been a long time since I've seen her, my heart is aching. Over the phone, I said this a lot, it would be nice if you could just come back to Korea and promote, release an album. But she has already done so many things up until this point. I think she has a lot of willpower. Yes, I'm her oppa, but as a fan, I want her to succeed." CL then whispered, "Thank you oppa."
Jung Hyung Don then asked CL, "I'm really curious. Why America?" CL replied, "Truthfully, I didn't really grow up in Korea. I've always been going to foreign schools (in Japan, France, and the United States) and I was lonely. I was the only Korean person and would just listen to pop music. Ever since I was little, I always asked, 'Why aren't there any pop stars that look like me? Why are there no Asian pop stars?' Even during my training at YG, I wanted to learn it all, the system was different, how they ate, how they did things (Defconn then mentions you have to look at it as a long-term goal). Since it never happened before there's no path I can follow. People want to help but they don't know how to help." Taeyang then mentioned that CL is a pioneer in that regard and Defconn said CL is amazing.
