CL might have a reputation for being The Baddest Female, but in a new spread for Grazia Korea, her sweet side is certainly shining through.

As the 2NE1 titan prepares for her long-awaited US debut, having just released the jaw-droppingly fierce "Hello Bitches" performance video as a tiny appetizer, the superstar is gracing the December 2015 cover of Grazia Korea — and it's for a very good cause.

According to a fan translation of the issue — called "Thank You CL" — the shoot was done to support Operation Smile:

CL has done a photoshoot to help the NGO "Operation Smile" that raises funds for surgical care for the children suffering from facial deformities. CL said on set, "If there's a meaningful and interesting project like this, I wold like to join in anytime. If the children need a school, I'd love to build a school for them too. I cna't afford to do that yet, but that's a wish I want to fulfill in the future."

According to the translation, CL also helmed the photo shoot concept down to the props, and also encouraged friends to take part. As for the child on set? She's reportedly a child treated through Operation Smile named Song Jiyeon — and the teaser clip from Grazia of their interaction is truly cute overload.

Check out CL goofing around with Song Jiyeon below for Grazia Korea, which is out on December 5.
