BLACKPINK’s diverse and colorful charms will be filling the pages of HIGHCUT magazine volume 224 which will be released on June 21. Check the photos + interview snippets revealed today below!
Q. What is the biggest difference between the BLACKPINK that just debuted, and the almost 3 year-old girl group BLACKPINK?
Jisoo: We developed a sense of responsibility to live up to our fans’ expectations. Before debuting, we sort of just felt like, ‘It would be great if we had fans’, or ‘Will people end up liking us?’. Now, we feel that we need to work exceedingly hard just to have one more person be satisfied. If we want to give a good showing of ourselves, even if we do it perfectly, we don’t know if it will 100% be conveyed properly on stage.
Q. At what point did you recently feel most grateful to your members?
Jennie: For a period of time, we each spent time separately. And now that we’ve suddenly gathered again for promotions, it’s as if a ‘unity switch’ was turned on, just like that. Even though we spent time apart, when we’re of the same mindset, we’re strong. Each member does everything she’s responsible for, so I’ve also developed a sense of responsibility.
Q. Was there a time when you missed Korea while you were promoting in Japan?
Lisa: There were some times when I wanted to eat Korean ramen. I like Japanese food, like sushi and tempura and don. But I sometimes think, ‘If only this ramen had kimchi, it would be perfect’.
Q. Please talke about what the other members mean to you.
Rosé: The members are extremely important people in my life. There are times when they’re there as friends, there are times when they’re there as family, and we can learn and grow from each other. When I’m having a tough time, I look for Jisoo unnie who lives in the room next door. I talk to my friend Lisa about the things we sympathize about. And when I need advice I look for Jennie unnie. We’re good influences to each other in many ways.
