“DARA: “To Blackjacks…
I didn’t know that I would end up writing a letter like this. First, to our fans, sorry for breaking your hearts…I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to protect you and I’m even more sorry that I ended up hurting you. Because of you all, the past 7 years felt like a dream filled with happiness and good memories. Chaerin, Bom, Minzy and I… all 4 of us will always be thankful and we will treasure those good times and memories forever. Blackjacks… are those who are reliable and love us, cheer for us, and protect us. I really wanted share good music with those people, even for the last time, but I’m so sorry that I couldn’t even do that. It’ll be painful for now…but I wish for you to cheer up, eat well, and do your best everyday. My heart will never change. I will always work hard to show the best of me. Merely saying “thank you” cannot express the gratitude I feel. Thank you for the immense love. Written on 2016.11, the loneliest winter of all.
From Dara, 2NE1’s fresh vocal.”
