“I go by the name of CL of 2NE1. It’s been a long time coming but we’re here now!”

What we wouldn’t give to hear these iconic lines again! *cries self to sleep*

Kpop fans all over the world have united to pay tribute to the baddest females on earth, our OG queens of kpop, 2NE1. Trending worldwide yesterday was the statement “CL of 2NE1”. What was originally meant as an introduction to herself on their debut stage by Chaelin, 2NE1’s former leader, went on to become one of the most iconic lines in all of kpop.

A BLACKPINK fan’s tweet ignited the series of argumentative tweets when the said fan claimed that “Blackpink in your area” was the most iconic line in kpop.

As expected, blackjacks and non-blackjacks alike united to “remind” the younger generation fans of 2NE1’s indelible existence.

Blackjacks were adamant that no other girl group–save for Girls’ Generation–can ever go against 2NE1.

The 2NE1 fans then went on to cite more instances of pure badass girl power from the OG quartet.

‘Fire’ was just really THAT song.

THOSE vocals. My gosh.

THE class from our best leader.

THAT impact?! 9 whole years later?!

Fan wars aside though, we all know that we just miss our girls. Despite the fact that their official disbandment was announced 2 years, 3 months, and 29 days ago (yes we’re counting each painful day!) deep inside, we all still hope to one day hear “I go by the name of CL of 2NE1 It’s been a long time coming but we’re here now!”
