Hey! >_< This is a blog explaining some of the girls who keep me living. Without these girls, I am not sure I would be writing this blog right now. The iconic, record setting/breaking K-pop group, BLACKPINK! *insert global BLINKS screaming* (BLINKS is what the fans are called btw)
There are four members to the world-wide sensation: Lisa, Jennie, Jisoo, and Rosé
To begin, there is Lisa. Real name: Lalisa Manoban. She is the youngest of the group at twenty-three-years-old. Originally from Thailand, Lisa has a personality that can be described as cute, intimidating, and a little edgy. She is always making jokes though and raising morale of the whole group. Her main role in the group is being a rapper, but her dancing is by far the best of the group.
From an early age, my girl Lisa was in dancing competitions, snatching all the trophies. This was girl is a bad bleep! Periodt. It wasn’t until a talent agent noticed her at one competition and prompted her to audition for YG.
YG is a HUGE K-Pop industry company. They actually are also the same label to produce the popular “Gangnam Style.”
So, she did audition.
Jennie. Oh, Jennie.
Jennie is twenty-four-years-old. She brings her vocals to the group. She grew up in South Korea, but then at the age of five she went to study in New Zealand at a school there. It was hard for her to be there alone, but she had a lot of freedom to do what she liked, including, but not limited to, music. This is where she realized her love for the art, and when YG came to New Zealand, she auditioned. I think you can guess how it went. 😉
Her vocals isn’t all she is known for however. One of her nicknames is actually the “Human Chanel.” Her fashion is always, *big jealous sigh* the best. ;-;
Rosé! Y’all this girl has THE pipes! Twenty-three-years-old and New Zealand born, Rosé is the main vocalist of the group. She spends hours in the recording studio or just practicing by her lonesome self and a guitar. Her sleeping trouble leaves her work ethic to seem and never stop. It is more than impressive.
Jumping back to her birthplace, this makes her know the most fluent English speaker of the group. A lot of the BLINKS will ask her to talk on Instagram Live Streams just to hear her Australian accent. It’s so kawaii! “.”
Lastly, there is Jisoo. Jisoo is another vocalist, and the oldest of the group.
Also, the members of the group call her Unnie, not really Jisoo. It is a cultural custom because she is an older friend. It’s almost more endearing and refers to her as a family figure.
She is twenty-five-years-old, and born and raised in South Korea. (She struggles the most with her English, but we love her anyways! ♥ ) Jisoo is the sweetest of them all, but also the most mischievous. She loves her milks, too! Banana, Strawberry, and many more! She is the big sister anyone would want, and they way she is always taking care of the other members is just precious. For example, when most of the group gets emotional at a concert she will try and continue for them or sing their parts as well. (And I mean like emotional over the fans and love) She is always checking in on everyone, and we just love her!
Also, just look at how gorgeous she looks.
There is so much to say and try and explain to one about these IDOLS. They just help me find the confidence to keep going and persevere through the tough. Everything they go through, and still perform and deliver with such excellence should be motivation enough for anyone. Please go love and support this amazing group! Maybe just check out a music video or two…who knows? You might just fall in love.
This video is titled “Kill This Love” and was one of their biggest hits. It definitely had the crowd ROARING when they performed at the music festival, Coachella. ♥
This video is tiled “Lovesick Girls” and is a more recent release from their new album. It does not quite have the edge of their previous hits, but still has me captivated! ♥
For more information on the legends who we should feel honored each day to breathe the same air, this is a link now of the trailer to their new movie, Light Up the Sky. It goes into more detail about the group members history individually and united. Available now on Netflix! ♥
This last link is for one of my personal favorite songs because it is a collaboration with my Queen and the woman who awakened the gay in me, Lady Gaga. The track is titled, “Sour Candy.” It has edge and is bold. It is unique.
Okay, okay! I could keep linking recommended content of BLACKPINK’s for hours because there is not a single track I do not use to keep me sane, alive, happy. BLACKPINK are not just four girls, they are life.
