CL calls Korean singers “more passionate” than American and Japanese singers



In a recent interview, CL expressed her feelings on why K-Pop artists have popularity overseas:

Why do you think foreigners like 2NE1 & Kpop?

“The passion for music that Korea has cannot be easily found anywhere else. As compared to singers in Japan and USA, our (Korean) singers are more passionate. 2NE1 has been mixing eastern and western genres of music. The trot melody (that I Love You has) is one of those efforts.” (CL)

Man, the worst is when people who thrive due to sheer hype start to buy into their own hype and believe the shit that’s being spewed.

It’s like being a drug dealer and using your own shit. You’ve jumped the shark after that, you know?

Pro-Tip: When you’re an underdog, people tend to root for you. When you’re an underdog and you act like you already run shit, people laugh at you for being delusionally entitled.

Just saying.

I'm a huge 2NE1-fan, but I'm side-eying CL for this comment. There are passionate singers all over the world, not only in Korea. -.-''

bitch please, listen to japanese vocalists like Yuna Ito, Ayumi Hamasaki or Koda Kumi.. there are far more too.
minakuu 9th-Jul-2012 03:40 pm (UTC)
even though ayu sounds not that good now, she still sings most of the korean vocalists into the ground

Oh please *eyeroll*

Every artist from whichever country will say something similar, not just artist but common folk too. It's the pride from being born in XY country. "Nobody sings/dance/cooks like *insert country*"

I wish people stopped hanging on to every word so literally and making every comment so negative. Really, it makes some of us pull away from fandoms.

OH CL pleas say they're just quoting you wrong

Actually, now that I know she expressed it in Korean, I kind of understand.

Gotta keep your home fans happy.

If she failed to mention anything Korean singers did better, her Korean fans would throw a fit, call her a 2nd gen, tell her to leave the country, etc.
