BLACKPINK appeared on the June 27 broadcast of MBC FM4U’s “Kim Shin Young’s Hope Song at Noon,” where they talked about their long hiatus.
On the incredible response that they’ve gotten for “DDU-DU DDU-DU,” Jisoo said, “It was our first comeback in a year, so we worried a lot. After about six months, we just thought, ‘we need to hurry and make a comeback,’ and once it became a year, we wanted to give our fans something new and fresh, since they waited for so long. We’re so thankful that they liked it.”
Jennie said they had a close eye on the charts. “We were most worred about the song charting. Because that’s how you know how many people are listening to the song. We wondered if people still remembered BLACKPINK, since our hiatus was long, so when we first saw our ranking, we were so surprised. When we saw that a b-side was also charting high, we were so moved.”
The group also put forth a first place promise for this week, if they were to be No. 1 again. Jennie said, “During filming for our music video, we throw popcorn up. If we have the opportunity, we want to try to have a fun performance where we throw popcorn up and catch it with our mouths.”
