Is there anything interesting that you would like to point out regarding the repackaged album?
First and foremost, the footage of the Budokan is in it, so THAT is very important! We prepared so much for that stage! It’s a 360 degree stage so I think that’s very awesome!

The fan’s enthusiasm/heat was crazy!
The chants were so much more louder than I had imagined! More than anything, there were so many fans there, and I was filled with so much gratitude.

Among all of the work you do with lives, tv appearances, and fashion magazine’s, which one do you like best?
I like every job I get, but I enjoyed appearing on tv show’s the most! The mc/cast would make everything entertaining! Anyhow, everything was so new to us! It’s so different compared to Korea. For example, the direction of the camera that was shooting us, the angles… It really was surprising! We sang BOOMBAYAH at a morning news/information tv program, not at a music tv show! And the camera’s would close up from the top like Dooon! *Sound of something closing in in Japanese* (laughs)

When you appeared on a Korean variety show, it was hilarious how you did the popular Thai taxi dance where you grab stars in the dance. After seeing that, it made us realize how much you are cut out for variety shows as well!
No way, I am not used to it at all! To be honest, I wasn’t planning on doing it at all! However, the members were like, “It will definitely be hilarious, so DO it!” because they’ve seen me dance to it in the past. That’s why I decided to dance it….(laughs)

It was super cute!!💕 The model Lisa-chan in NONA9ON is always very cool!
I’ve been doing it ever since I was a trainee, but when I was chosen it was so shocking. I thought to myself, even I could become a model! Becoming a model was a dream I’ve had ever since I was a baby, so I was very happy.

I recommend the collection that I collaborated with! There are a variety of items that anyone can wear casually like a purple hoodie, a yellow t-shirt… those are my favorite colors. I made it by using my clothes that I wear everyday as a base! (Assuming she helped design the clothes.)

The four of you were exploding with and showing off your charms through the reality show BLACKPINK HOUSE that was released on Vlive and YouTube. For you Lisa-chan, what was the most memorable thing that happened?
It was very fun when we got to go to Thailand!

Your dad cooked for you guys, right?
Ah, did you watch everything? Ohhh! I knew it was strange! (Laughs) After all, it was all my favorite foods! I knew right away that only my parents would know this menu. That’s why right after I saw it, I was like “AHHH!”

The members looked like they were about to cry too.
All the members met my parents in Korea before, but because it was their first time meeting them in my hometown, Thailand, they were touched.

You guys went to roof top bars, shopping, and etc, but what did you enjoy the most?
The zip line (the attraction that reminds you of Tarzan) that we went on when it was raining was very fun! It was just so funny how we went when it was raining. (Laughs) Remember when Rosé-chan’s foot became all blue because she was wearing sandals (laughs)? That was so funny!

I thought you guys were doing such an intense filming, but it seems you had fun. (Laughs)
Before we left, I also thought it was going to be exhausting! However, it was very fun once we went! 💜


When you guys went to buy beddings, Jennie said that the rabbit pattern was creepy, but you ended up buying it anyways, right? I laughed a little at that as well. (Laughs)
Yeah that! (Laughs) But I thought it was super cute!! Anyhow, I love cute things! I like patterns! Also, I love things that are unusual, even with clothes! Maybe that’s why people don’t understand. (Laughs)

Well then, please tell us what you like about each of the members!
First of all, Jisoo-san is just so funny! When I’m with her I can always be happy and keep laughing. Jennie-san is so cool! Even though she’s cool, whenever I sometimes get to see her sweet side, she’s so cute! Rosé-chan is the same age as me, and she is truly my best friend! When I’m with her, I can discuss my problems with her, and there is a big part of me that relies on her as well.

What are the members always doing?
Jisoo is always playing games! PC games and cellphone games! Anyways, she is always playing games. Also, she really loves watching anime! Even if it’s an anime I don’t particularly like, she always invites me by saying, “Let’s watch it together~!”, because she likes it. (Laughs) Jennie likes mysterious toys like slime, and small candy toys. She makes them often. Rosé frequently watches American dramas. She also has a pet fish and looks after it. When she’s bored, there are a lot of times when she is just staring at the fish.

Message to each of the members!
OH! WOW!! What should I say? Jisoo-san, let’s watch anime together later! Jennie-san, I want to be in the same room again with you unnie (embarrassed)! Rosé-chan, I’ll buy you another fish!

Okay, so let’s talk a little bit about fashion. Mini is a street style fashion magazine for girls, but what do you think of this style?
It’s a style that I want to imitate! (While looking at Mini Magazine) I love wearing baggy jackets and tops! I love these kind of jersey’s with lines in them as well! I love sneakers too, especially white sneakers! I use them regularly. I frequently wear similar caps that I wore for this magazine, and I like knitted hats too.

That’s precisely Mini’s fashion style! When we think of BLACKPINK, we think of big/a bunch of accessories.
For our stage outfits, it’s like that, however I really like casual clothing, so I rarely wear any accessories for my own outfits. (Laughs)

Do you have any preferences when it comes to balancing your outfit and makeup?
When I feel like I want to do flashy make up, I would wear ALL BLACK. On the other hand, I think that if I were to wear brighter clothes, I would focus on my lips, and just put on mascara. I love lipstick the most, and right now I really like the color that looks like pink and brown are mixed together or the color of “dried up roses”.

I know you guys are preparing for your next comeback, but what’s the situation like?
We are currently doing our best and working on it! Please wait just a li~ttle bit longer!

Lastly, please give a message to all Mini readers!
I feel very honored to have worked with Mini-san once again. I hope that we have more and more work together in the future!

Really?! (Laughs) We’re happy to hear that! 💕
Yes! By the way, I signed the hat for the reader’s gift! Please wear it cutely! 💜
