About Performance & Member
N: Your rap is really addictive. Why did you start doing it?
L: When I was still a trainee, there was a genre challenge happening and I think that rap was the one that suits me the most so I keep on doing it.
N: Who are the rappers that you admire to be or your goal to become?

N: The time you debuted with “BOOMBAYAH” until today, was there any difference?
L: Nothing much 😂😂😂
N: 😅😅 Your trainee life was hard. What was your motivation?
L: The support of my dad and mom really helped me a lot. And my fellow trainee members who I trained with. We shared a lot of painful times. We shared about a dream that is debuting and I think that was keeping me and my motivation up.
N: For Lisa, what is the difference between BLACKPINK and the other artists?
L: First, the name of our group is BLACKPINK which means that the group has a lot of charms. And our cool performances are one of it too.
N: Please tell us the things you respect among the members.
L: Rosé-chan who does the work perfectly from the start until the end. I really respect her a lot for it. Jennie-san, I like her how she’s different off and on stage! When she performs, she turns sexy and instantly becomes everyone’s girl crush but when she’s off stage, she turns into a lovable and funny person. Jisoo-san, who is always happy and full of energy. I also always get a lot of happiness from her. She’s the oldest and she leads us well so I really respect her a lot too.
N: Do you and your members play during day offs?
L: We often go to a theme park or aquarium!
N: All of you must be really close!
L: Yes,we are all close!

N: How about woman?
L: Jennie-san!😂 She’s sexy and lovable!

N: What do you think is your charming point?
L: It’s too embarrassing to say it on my own!😂 I don’t know!
N: You’re a nice girl! What kind of a little kid were you?
L: I was a happy kid. I always loved to play and my family always go to a vacation overseas once a year.

N: What kind of food do you like?
L: I love everything.
N: Japanese and Korean food also?
L: Yes. And my father is from Switzerland so I love their food too.

N: Where do you want to go when you go on a date?
L: I watched ‘My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday’ and I want to go to the place where it was filmed! The old homes that were lining on the streets are so pretty. I want to go to a date right there.
