Updated: Jul 20

Blackpink (Korean:블랙핑크 usually stylized as BLɅϽKPIИK) is a girl group from South Korea that was created by YG Entertainment. The group now consists of four members: Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa.

The group made their debut in August of 2016 with the release of their first single album, titled Square One. The album featured two songs, "Whistle" and "Boombayah," both debuted at number one on separate charts: the Gaon Digital Chart in South Korea and the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart.

On January 17, 2017, Blackpink revealed the name of their fan club—"Blink", a portmanteau of "black" and "pink"

Their works generally revolve around themes of independence, female empowerment, and topics addressing breakups and toxic relationships, as well as summer romances

What's the story behind the name Blackpink?

The name of the band was chosen to subvert the notion of femininity that is traditionally connected to the colour pink. At the time of Blackpink's debut, their record label, YG Entertainment, explained that the group's name is meant to suggest that they are more than just pretty faces. Jennie sings the opening lyrics of "Ddu-Du Ddu," which mirror her message, "I may seem nice, but I don't act like it," in the song "Ddu-Du Ddu."

After spending her childhood in South Korea, Jennie relocated to Australia with her mother when she was 10 years old. Jennie was born and reared in South Korea. Not long after that, she uprooted her life once more and spent the next roughly five years living alone in New Zealand.

Jennie's educational plans included for her to move to the United States when she became fifteen years old. However, when she was in New Zealand getting her things ready for her upcoming relocation to the United States, she had a change of heart and decided that instead of moving to the United States, she would follow her ambitions of being a singer.

After successfully passing her YG Entertainment audition, Jennie was offered a position as a trainee for the company. Her involvement in the projects that her labelmates were working on helped her gain popularity among fans during the course of her six years of training.

She had an acting appearance in the music video for G-song Dragon's "That XX," and she was featured on songs including "Scarecrow" by Lee Hi, "GG Be" by Seungri, and the Korean version of "Black" by G-Dragon.

Jennie made her first appearance on stage with BLACKPINK on August 8, 2016, and since then, she has established herself as one of the most in-demand musicians in her age group. After another year had passed, on November 12th, 2018, Jennie finally made her long-awaited debut as a solo artist with the release of her chart-topping digital song titled "Solo."

Some Facts:

a. She is believed to be a member of BLACKPINK who has the finest sense of style, and she has even been given the title "Human Gucci" due to the fact that she wears the brand so frequently. (What a fantastic nickname!)

b. She is renowned as the "YG princess" and honed her skills over the course of 5 years and 11 months of training. (YG Entertainment discovered her when she was just 14 years old and signed her on)
