Pyeongchang Winter Olympics closing ceremony

1. [+656, -61] She really had no other song she could sing? 'The Baddest Female' is not an appropriate song for a closing ceremony at all

2. [+489, -45] Well that was a bit surprising...

3. [+458, -42] Why would you ever perform 'The Baddest Female' at the Olympics? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ so f*cking random

4. [+373, -39] She looked like a witch

5. [+353, -44] This was so bad

6. [+174, -17] I honestly felt embarrassed..

7. [+169, -32] Her stage was so random and didn't fit the point of the ceremony ㅠㅠ or maybe it's art and I'm missing it

8. [+150, -18] I was embarrassed about the whole thing. Totally a song and performance choice that stood out as an error in the closing ceremony. I have no idea whose country she's even representing with this. This is a perfect miscasting... did they even see what her stages were like before hiring her?

9. [+150, -26] She looks like Cruella;;;;

10. [+133, -14] She was barely singing at all. What was this? We had no other female singer who could represent us? I don't understand why you would even pick 'The Baddest Female' for this ceremony. What was going through their minds when they cast her? This is ridiculous

1. [+1,907, -159] What is this... why CL, so randomly, at the closing ceremony...?? I'm pretty sure the entire nation was watching this from their homes in utter shock

2. [+1,843, -147] CL was such an error in the whole closing ceremony! Are you serious with performing 'The Baddest Female'?!

3. [+1,790, -143] F*ck, I had to rush here and comment while watching her. Is she serious? I was wondering what she'd perform since she doesn't even have a hit track and this is what she came up with? What country was she even representing? All she did was mumble in English while repeating "I'm the baddest female~" and lip syncing the whole time ㅋㅋㅋㅋ ridiculous ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ If she had nothing to perform, nothing to show off, nothing to represent her country with, the least she could've done was known her place and declined such an opportunity. She is one of the biggest errors of this amazing ceremony ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+164, -3] So can someone explain to me what 'The Baddest Female' has to do with the Pyeongchang Olympics...

5. [+152, -8] CL ㅋㅋㅋ and EXO ㅋㅋㅋ at the Olympics ㅋㅋㅋ are we serious with the idols? ㅋㅋ

6. [+142, -4] Should've just gone with Psy's 'Gangnam Style', ugh

7. [+136, -4] This was a bit cringe. Why would she pick 'The Baddest Female'!!!!!! Doesn't match the closing ceremony at all, and it didn't even excite the crowd. She was even lip syncing!!!!!

8. [+118, -3] So embarrassing that other countries were watching this... is she a dancer? At least pretend to have the mic up to your face...

9. [+111, -2] 'The Baddest Female' at the olympics..? Seriously, I never had any ill feelings toward CL or YG but this is just going too far;; this is just low class..

10. [+106, -4] This was... bad....

1. [+1,007, -41] She doesn't look like she'd match the hanbok at all but she's perfect for it ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ so pretty

2. [+903, -39] Wow... really pretty...

3. [+889, -35] She has a mix of both western and eastern charms. So pretty but her voice is just as charming and she's got smarts as well ㅜㅜ love how talented this unni is

4. [+42, -4] CL... ㅋ I guess the embarrassment is our own to suffer...

5. [+30, -5] I wish they did more close ups, I could barely see her ㅠ

6. [+27, -6] The best of the Miss Koreas

7. [+26, -3] What was the point of this ㅋㅋㅋ you could barely see her on screen. I would've never known she was Honey Lee.

8. [+23, -5] The quality of our closing ceremony was so bad

1. [+1,858, -73] They looked amazing. I was watching with my family and everyone was saying the one with the solo dance did well and that everyone was handsome ㅋㅋ

2. [+1,797, -48] You were amazing EXO!

3. [+1,732, -47] Good job EXO ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ such a proud and classy stage

4. [+1,694, -43] EXO's the best!!!

5. [+1,647, -44] EXO was the jjang ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

6. [+531, -16] So proud that EXO is representing K-Pop!!!! Amazing

7. [+518, -14] You could tell how much effort EXO put in for this. Kai gave me goosebumps the entire way through

8. [+503, -14] Amazing from start to finish! Thank you for the amazing stage EXO

9. [+483, -13] Good job, so proud!

10. [+458, -14] EXO was the jjang ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ the best ㅠㅠㅠ

1. [+990, -225] Imagine singing 'Growl' while the entire world is watching ㅋㅋ I'm seriously so embarrassed ㅋㅋㅋ isn't BTS more popular? ㅋㅋ Why did we bother with having idols for this? ㅜ growl growl!

2. [+962, -196] This was probably the worst closing ceremony ever. We really had no better singers to represent our country? None of them had any weight, and was with the lip syncing.... I heard that we're the first country in the history of the Olympics to have lip syncing in the closing ceremony..

3. [+843, -158] Is this a joke!!!!!!!!!!!!

4. [+119, -35] Should've just cast BTS if this was going to be the end product... EXO had zero stage command...

5. [+114, -23] Why should we have to suffer this embarrassment? The stage looked too big for CL or EXO to pull off... meanwhile singers from other countries had no problem pulling off the entire stage on their own ㅠㅠ why couldn't we invite actually talented singers? Why performance singers! Was this the best we could do!!!!!!!!

6. [+112, -20] The least they could've done was line up their choreography. Did they not practice...

7. [+107, -33] EXO's an amazing group but I feel like this was a stage for Psy and BTS since they're bigger globally

8. [+107, -23] We did so well hosting all this time and then screw up with the closing ceremony... I knew we'd be getting idols but... growl? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Talk about driving me crazy ㅋㅋ Psy would've been way better

9. [+102, -26] Are they serious with 'Growl''? I was so embarrassed I couldn't even stand watching the rest. Such a drop in class.

10. [+101, -19] The closing should've been JO Soo Mi - Champion, BTS - Fire, Psy - Gangnam Style

1. [+222, -30] Seriously the absolute worst... I never thought I could be so embarrassed... I was watching with my foreign friends and was shocked at CL's performance... then lost any pride I could have in my country at all with EXO. Why in the world would they not cast Psy and BTS who are already daebaks overseas... sigh

2. [+208, -10] Events like this are usually the result of SM and YG shoving their big company power down everyone's throats for the castings ㅋㅋ YG and SM obviously pushed CL and EXO into this. If we were to cast solely based on global popularity, it should've been Psy and BTS ㅋㅋ anyway, this is so embarrassing... can't believe CL actually sang 'The Baddest Female' ugh

3. [+174, -14] This was just ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+38, -2] I expected BTS... what was up with those has beens EXO... and CL?

5. [+35, -2] The majority of Koreans were embarrassed

6. [+32, -1] EXO was honestly sad... they were performing their own song and couldn't even match up their own choreography. EXO fans better not shield this.

7. [+31, -0] Other than Honey Lee, the rest were bad... CL... EXO... jeez...

8. [+26, -1] I'm sure they all cost a pretty penny to cast.. would've been better to spend that money on supporting our arts and creating a better ending stage. Seemed like they just performed as they would at any local music show... and lip synced on top of that.

9. [+26, -1] CL and EXO, jeez... Fine, I get that lip syncing was allowed, but didn't they think it'd be embarrassing for the viewers? By comparison, remember how amazing the American singers were at the Superbowl~

10. [+24, -3] The worst closing ceremony in Olympic history. Did we really have to use idols? Idols that couldn't even sing live and had to lip sync?
