This group is the first and only YG Entertainment’s group that doesn’t have a leader! Although each member has a clear position and specialties, BLACKPINK is a group that is generally good at other areas besides their main position. Traditionally, YG Entertainment has had many artists who stood out more in their individuality and music than their visuals, so there used to be a saying of “YG doesn’t care about face that much when he picks trainees”. However, BLACKPINK is one of the girl groups with best visuals. Each and every one of them have outstanding appearances. At first when they debuted, BLACKPINK was often called ‘Hyun Suk’s (YG’s) treasure box’ and maybe this member was one of the most prettiest jewel among them.

You must have noticed who this member is, right? Let’s find out everything about ‘BLACKPINK’s first member, who is the eldest, super lovely, is the lead vocalist & visual princess, and is called actor Kim. Unlike her pure princess-like face, her personality is chilled and out going. She likes to joke around and make fun of other members. Her TMI might be too cute and lovely, so be careful of Deogtongsago! So, shall we start everything about Jisoo 🙂

Of course Jisoo would have debuted somehow since she wanted to become an actor and also because of her appearance, but I just wanted to say thank you for becoming a BLACKPINK member. Jisoo Turtle Rabbit Kim, thank you for enduring five years of long trainee days:)
