Twice decided to cancel the first show of its three-day concert that was originally planned to start from Dec. 24-26.

This is to keep in line with strengthened measures to curb the recent upsurge in COVID-19 cases, according to which the concert venue has to close at 10 p.m. The first day’s concert was to begin at 7:30 p.m. and running time was 2 1/2 hours.

The concerts on the following two days start at 6 p.m. and 5 p.m. respectively and will be held as scheduled. The Sunday concert will be also broadcast live on Naver’s V Live.

The band will resume its international tour in the US in February.

CL shocked fans when she confided that she found out that her band 2NE1 was disbanding from the news.

In an interview with AP Entertainment, when the interviewer mentioned that her former bandmate Minzy learned it first from the media, not from their then-label YG Entertainment, CL, leader of the idol group, said with a laugh, “Well ... I did too, to be honest.”

“I was at a Thanksgiving dinner and my phone blew up,” she recalled adding that it was “very heartbreaking.”

The musician debuted as a member of the female quartet, along with Sandara Park, Park Bom and Minzy, in 2009. The band was disbanded in November 2016.

She dropped her solo debut song “Lifted” in the US in 2016 and became the first Korean solo singer to enter Billboard. In October, she released first solo studio album “Alpha” and late last month hosted her first solo gig in London.
