At a recent interview, BLACKPINK’s Lisa talked about being a foreign member.
The rookie idol is originally from Thailand, and also the only foreign member from YG Entertainment. When asked about her struggles in a foreign country, Lisa said, “It’s been 6 years since I came to Korea. At first, I couldn’t speak Korean at all. It was frustrating how I couldn’t communicate. So I received Korean lessons every day and my members also helped me a lot on my Korean.”
Lisa also talked about her homeland, and said, “People in Thailand love K-pop. There are many who also desire to become a K-pop singer.” To the next question asking how she stands out among the many foreign idols in K-pop, Lisa answered, “I’m usually timid but I try hard to be charismatic on stage. I think this is the unique color I have.”
