JENNIE~~~~~

Q. Share your thoughts on your first feature in GLITTER!

JN: Nice to meet you! I’m BLACKPINK’s Jennie. It’s an honor to be able to appear in such an awesome magazine like this, I’m so happy ❤️

Q. What do you think is your most charming trait?

JN: Uhm… If I had to say something I would say it’s my Asian looks. I’m often called an Asian beauty. (At this point we hear ‘Her eyes are charming!’ from the members)

Q. How do you usually maintain your physique?

JN: When we have schedules, we naturally have intense physical activity from our stages and our dance practices. I don’t really do any exercising outside of that. When our schedules aren’t packed, I consciously try to be active.

Q. What do you pay attention to in terms of your diet?

JN: When we have important events, I try to exercise self-control but… ordinarily I think I’m the type to eat a lot! I bloat really easily, so I have a low-sodium diet. It makes your body feel lighter, so I recommend it.

Q. What are your must-dos/must-haves for skincare?

JN: The time I spend wearing makeup for work is long, so I make sure to cleanse. The makeup around the eyes and the lips are heavy, so I spot cleanse those areas, and then clean the rest of my skin with less harsh products.

Q. Are there words that make you happy when you hear them?

JN: “I listened to BLACKPINK’s songs again today.” Those words make me really happy, and they become a source of strength.

Q. Something you mindlessly bought recently?

JN: A hairband! I really like them and I’m accumulating a collection of sorts (laughs).

Q. What’s your favorite among all the songs you’ve released so far?

JN: STAY. It’s a painful love song that rends your heart. I really love the lyrics, “It has to be you no matter what.”

Q. What do you think is a charm that only BLACKPINK possesses?

JN: I don’t know of any such exterior qualities, but for me it’s the way each of our members are willing to complement each other’s weaknesses. We don’t have any weird concerns either, so we have an environment where we’re able to voice each of our opinions in order to produce something of great quality. I think that’s our strength.

Q. Something you want to do as “BLACKPINK” in the future?

JN: I studied abroad in New Zealand before, and I’ve heard that many BLINKs have expressed their anticipation for promotions in English, so it’s something we wish to challenge. It’s not just about performing live concerts, but no matter how small the venue, it’s an opportunity to stand on stage, so we will treat each one with all that we have. And I want to meet everyone from various countries!

Q. Lastly, a message for the fans!

JN: I want to show BLINKs and the reader of GLITTER a much cooler side of myself, so please give BLACKPINK and our new song “DDU-DU DDU-DU” lots of love. ❤️

LISA~~~~~~~

Q. What do you think is your most charming trait?

LS: What is it…. Ah, it’s that I’m a positive person! (The other three members quickly answered, “Long-Dari! (long legs)”)

Q. How do you usually maintain your physique?

LS: I routinely do boxing for exercise, but when I have schedules there are long periods of time when I can’t go, so it made me realize the importance of aerobic exercise. It’s something that I pay attention to in everyday life as well.

Q. What do you pay attention to in terms of your diet?

LS: To be honest, I usually don’t pay much attention to it. The only maintenance I do is avoiding rice the night before an important event.

Q. What are your must-dos/must-haves for skincare?

LS: Cleansing, just like Jennie. Oil, milk, gel, there are so many types (of cleansers) but I see to it that I cleanse thoroughly!

Q. Amidst your busy life, what is one thing that you want to make time for?

LS: Time to play with my pet cat, and watching American dramas! What would I recommend nowadays? Uhm… It would have to be “Stranger Things”. It’s so interesting I’m addicted.

Q. Are there words that make you happy when you hear them?

LS: “BLACKPINK is awesome!”

Q. Something you mindlessly bought recently?

LS: Lip balm! No matter what kinds I already have I end up wanting more anyway (laughs). I also unintentionally bought Japanese snacks… they’re delicious! My favorite is the corn potage flavor. I also like the potato snack that my manager bought for me!

Q. What’s your favorite among all the songs you’ve released so far?

LS: I can’t choose… (cries)! But, if I had to choose, it would be “BOOMBAYAH”. The part in the beginning where Jennie sings “BLACKPINK in your area” is so cool, I love it!

Q. What do you think is a charm that only BLACKPINK possesses?

LS: Teamwork. Just as Jennie said, the members have the kind of relationship where we can tell each other anything. It’s something to be proud of.

Q. Please teach us an effective way to learn Korean!

LS: Watch Korean dramas! That’s how I learned it. I think enjoying while studying is the most important.

Q. Something you want to do as “BLACKPINK” in the future?

LS: Have you seen our documentary / reality show “BLACKPINK HOUSE”? Thank you so much! That makes me happy. We have members that were raised abroad and have studied abroad, and we haven’t had a chance to speak to BLINKs in English during a concert, so I’d say that we would like to try communicating in English. I think we’d be really happy if we got the chance to perform live in many other countries.

Q: Lastly, a message for the fans!

LS: I’m so happy we got to meet so many of our fans because of our Japan tour this time! We’ll work harder to have more opportunities to meet our fans in the future so please support us a lot! ❤️

ROSÉ~~~~~~~

Q. What do you think is your most charming trait?

RS: This is difficult! What would it be… My cat-like features…? (The members’ opinions: “Her cheeks!”)

Q. How do you usually maintain your physique?

RS: Just like the other members, I don’t consciously pay attention to it that much, but I think aerobic exercise is important. Being active for just a little bit every day creates a big difference.

Q. Amidst your busy life, what is one thing that you want to make time for?

RS: My time with my family. We live near each other now, so after I’m done with work, I often go over to show myself for a bit. I don’t make being busy an excuse, and I make it a point to personally make time for them.

Q. Are there words that make you happy when you hear them?

RS: There are so many that make me happy… What to do (laughs). Just a simple “You did your best” is a form of acknowledgment that makes me really happy. It resounds in my heart.

Q. Something you mindlessly bought recently?

RS: Uhm… Could I think about it a bit? (Cute Rosé put her hands on her head in deep thought) Ah, there’s one. Iced tea! If you see a café and stroll in… won’t you end up buying one? Is it just me? (laughs)

Q. A music genre that you like?

RS: Hmm… I don’t have any particular type of song I listen to, I feel like I listen to a wide variety of songs. I like Western music, and I even listen to Japanese music too! It’s a form of studying Japanese as well.

180907 glitter mag AeuyTLiN scans 12

Q. What’s your favorite among all the songs you’ve released so far?

RS: “FOREVER YOUNG”. I like Lisa’s part in the beginning. “No regrets even after today ends,” that part.

Q. What do you think is a charm that only BLACKPINK possesses?

RS: Never being afraid of looking for new challenges and forging on ahead is one of our strengths.

Q. What is BLACKPINK’s vision for the future?

RS: I’m of the same opinion as the other members – I wish that more people in many other countries will listen to BLACKPINK’s songs, so I want to increase our promotions overseas. I was born in New Zealand, and I haven’t had a chance to communicate with our fans in English during a concert. I think I communicate more easily in English, so it’s something I want to try.

Q. Lastly, a message for fans!

RS: Being able to have a photoshoot for GLITTER is something we’ve been looking forward to as well. More than just a cover, we have 10 pages to ourselves too! That’s why we did our best to prepare for the beautiful shots that were taken of us. We’ll do our best for our Japanese activities going forward as well, so we’d be happy if you showed us your love and support!

JISOO~~~~~~~

Q. What do you think is your most charming trait?

JS: (While pointing at her cheeks)… my smile? (The members replied, “Soft and pretty lips!”)

Q. How do you usually maintain your physique?

JS: Yoga! I highly recommend it. If you keep at it, it gives you an elegant physique, so I think it’s great for developing a feminine body!

Q. What do you pay attention to in terms of your diet?

JS: We mostly pay attention to it when we have to because of important schedules. During those times we just try to prioritize healthy foods… Because of our usual practices, we don’t have to be that strict with it.

Q. What are your must-dos/must-haves for skincare?

JS: Just like Jennie and Lisa, cleansing is the one thing I make sure to do. I make use of oil, milk, gel (cleansers) depending on what suits my skin.

Q. Amidst your busy life, what is one thing that you want to make time for?

JS: Time for reading manga and playing games (laughs). Those are times when I can truly be free and in full relaxation mode. I like Japanese anime too. I actually love “Crayon shin-chan” (laughs). Among Japanese films, I saw “My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday,” and I was so touched!

Q. Are there words that make you happy when you hear them?

JS: I feel great when I hear “You were great this time too” from fans!

Q. Something you mindlessly bought recently?

JS: Uhm… I love boiled egg, coffee pudding and Japanese snack! I especially like the avocado flavored potato snack! It’s a rare flavor that can’t be bought in Korea so when I find it I just buy it (laughs).

Q. What’s your favorite among all the songs you’ve released so far?

JS: Any of them come to mind, but I like “SEE U LATER”. There’s Jennie’s part, when literally translated, is “Your SORRY that resembles an empty can”. The lyrics talk about loss and the melody is amazing so please (listen to it)…

Q. What do you think is a charm that only BLACKPINK possesses?

JS: Whether it’s our music video or our live performances, we’re in an environment where we can express our opinions for any event. To have the chemistry among the four of us where we complement each other’s good point and bad points is our strength and our charm. We’re close of course, but our mindset of “4 people as one” is strong.

Q. Please teach us an effective way to learn Korean!

JS: Just like Lisa, I think indulging in “dramas” is the fastest way (laughs)!

Q. Something you want to do as “BLACKPINK” in the future?

JS: There have recently been many BLINKs who are anticipating our overseas promotions, so we do want to try releasing a song that’s only sung in English. We have members who are from overseas, and who’ve studied abroad, and I think this is one of BLACKPINK’s charms that would be great to make use of.

Q: Lastly, a message for the fans!

JS: We’re very happy to be able to grace the cover of GLITTER on our first feature here. We want to be able to repay our fans through our promotions, so I hope you look forward to us and wait for us!
