The Olympics closing ceremony will take place in Pyeongchang this Sunday, Feb. 25, and K-pop superstars EXO and CL will be giving all the exceptional athletes an equally exceptional send-off.
EXO is a nine-member K-pop boy band that debuted in 2012 with the dramatic, theatrical “Mama.” They quickly rose to fame after the release of “Growl,” a swaggering hip-hop track that the group dropped in 2014 and went viral in South Korea. Their most recent album “The War” was pre-ordered more than 800,000 times and became EXO’s fourth consecutive album to sell over a million copies.
CL was the rapper and leader of 2NE1, one of K-pop’s pre-eminent girl groups. Born Lee Chae-rin, CL made her solo debut with the single “The Baddest Female” in 2013. In 2016, she launched her worldwide “Hello B*****s Tour,” performing everywhere from New York City to Toronto. CL has also featured in many American artists’ works such as Diplo and Lil Yachty. She is currently working on her debut English-language album.
The Winter Olympic closing ceremony will be held on Sunday, Feb. 25, and aired live on NBC at 6 a.m. ET.
