On the December 7 airing of tvN's 'Life Bar', CL stated, "I grew up listening to pop, and it didn't make sense to me how there weren't any Asian pop stars (promoting in the U.S). I felt that even more when I actually visited America. Even if I don't succeed as people expect or as much I did in Korea, I believe if it'll be helpful to the artists after me if I open up the road."
MC Heechul expressed admiration as he commented, "You have left behind everything you have here, I don't think I could ever do that. I'm going to cry if they send me. I'm going to bawl if Lee Soo Man tells me to challenge myself in America." To this, MC Yura brought laughter as she responded, "Because you can't speak English."
Next, CL continued talking about her experience in America and shared how American agencies are different from Korean labels. She explained, "In Korea, like SM, YG, one label takes cares of everything from labeling, management, producing, and everything but in America, there's one separate thing for management, one separate for the agency. It's all separate. So it was very new how I had to do everything separately on my own after being under one agency that does everything. In a way, the Korean system is very convenient."
Lastly, when asked about the status of her American dream, CL confidently commented, "I'm almost there."
