CL, EXO and Honey Lee captivate the world with fascinating performances at PyeongChang Olympics closing ceremony.


The 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics came to a close on February 25th with an unforgettable closing ceremony.

The 2018 PeongChang Winter Olympics closing ceremony did not only feature technological innovation with coordinated drones forming the shape of Suhorang,  the beloved mascot of the Pyeongchang Games, but was also highlighted by fascinating performances by CL, EXO and Honey Lee.

CL made charismatic and fierce appearance as she stepped out in a loose-fitting black garb to protect her from PyeongChang’s biting chill, but her fierce introduction with “Hello Bi+ches” felt fiery. The crowd got hyped as she performed to “The Baddest Female” and 2NE1’s “I Am the Best.” The crowd sang along to the chorus of “I Am the Best” as she wowed with a performance that incorporated torch lights.

CL originally made her debut as a member of 2NE1 in 2009, and the girl group took K-pop by storm with hits like “Fire,” “Lonely,” “Go Away,” and “I Am the Best.” The group went their separate ways in 2016, and CL has been mainly focusing on a solo music career in the US since then. She released her first solo single “Hello Bitches” in 2015 and her album “Lifted” in 2016, also stating that she hopes to take on more challenges as a musician in 2018.

Next up was one of the hottest K-pop groups, EXO to take on the stage. EXO‘s performance was opened by Kai who performed a graceful dance routine to an instrumental which was a beautiful mix of the sounds of a kkwaenggwari (traditional Korean gong) and an electric drum beat. The energy jumped to 200% when the rest of the EXO members made an entrance on fancy jeeps, who were then joined by Kai for their performance to “Growl” and “Power“.

A surprise celebrity appearance was Honey Lee, who appeared in the first stage of the night and performed ChoonAengMoo, which is the only traditional Korean court dance that is performed solo and depicts a longing for spring and its beauty through restrained movement.

Honey Lee‘s agency explained that she, who has a Master’s degree in traditional Korean music from Seoul National University, was approached in October 2017 to appear in the closing ceremony, and since then has been preparing for her stage for three months. Honey Lee stated, “I gratefully agreed to appear in the closing ceremony and take this opportunity to show the world the beauty of Korea on stage.

With incredible sports, flying colors and jaw dropping performances by artists, the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics comes to an end.

The 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics were held from February 9th to 25th in PyeongChang, Gangwon Province. They will be followed by the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Paralympics, which will be held from March 9th to 18th.
