After debuting with the single album ‘SQUARE ONE’ on August 8, 2016 at 8 pm, BLACKPINK has written a new history of K-POP with tremendous attention and headlines! In fact, did you know that they might have been called ‘PINKPUNK’ before debut? It is said that the team name was confirmed as ‘BLACKPINK’ just a month before their debut. ‘Pink’ is expressed as the prettiest color and ‘Black’ the reversal of it. The name contains a meaning of ‘What you see is not everything’ and ‘Don’t look at only the pretty side’.

This member’s powerful dance and rap strongly infuses ‘Black’ image to BLACKPINK. She shows charismatic performances on stage, but is actually cute and the youngest member of the group. Can you guess who the next member is?! It’s the last but not least, Lisa!!!

Did you enjoy TMI of BLACKPINK’s youngest member Lisa, who is often tricked and joked by other members? Whenever Lisa goes on variety shows, she shows her funny dances without hesitation, makes others laugh and comfortable. So you might think she is just a young and cute maknae, but she is actually deep inside and thinks a lot. Lisa first came to Korea because she loved K-pop so much when she couldn’t even speak Korean. I wonder how hard it must have been for her being alone in a foreign country, not knowing anything. That’s probably why she became such a successful singer after going through all those hard times. Thank you for being a wonderful singer Lisa! Please show us more of your wonderful performances!
