Not long after BLACKPINK celebrated their 2nd anniversary since their debut, the girl group sat down for a long-ranging interview about their career.
BLACKPINK first debuted on August 8, 2016, quickly becoming one of K-pop’s trendiest girl groups with hits like “BOOMBAYAH,” “Playing With Fire,” and “As If It’s Your Last.” In 2018 they broke their hiatus with “DDU-DU DDU-DU” and have broken several records, including for Korean girl groups on Billboard’s Hot 100.

BLACKPINK’s Lisa and Rosé were featured in the September issue of Dazed Korea!
The two girl group members transformed into English royalty and wore pieces from Mulberry’s 2018 Fall/Winter collection.
Mulberry’s creative director Johnny Coca stated, “We highlighted British style from various perspectives. A Mulberry woman has the elegance of royalty and a rebellious mind at the same time.”
He continued, “Rosé and Lisa are stylish. I hope their expressions of unpredictable and contemporary style will be expressed as they are.”
In an accompanying interview, Lisa and Rosé spoke about their latest mini album promotions. “Our hiatus was long, but we’re getting a lot of strength because many people are giving us love,” said the girl group members.
Commenting on their recent concert in Osaka, they said, “We thought about how nice it would be if the moment of the four of us standing on stage lasted forever.”
Rosé talked about their future plans, saying, “I’m curious about how far we can go and what more we can do. The four of us really love music and this job.” Lisa added, “We’re really happy people because we’re doing what we like.”

As soon as you made a comeback, you have landed a spot on the US Billboard making you the highest-charting Kpop girl group of all time. Along with Billboard, your name is also seen rising in UK’s Official Chart and Japan’s Oricon which are considered to be 3 of the major music charts in the world. How does it feel to be called the first and the best only 3 years after your debut?
Rosé: It feels too much. I don’t think I’ll get used to hearing those words that easily.
Jennie: It’s been a year since our comeback and we didn’t really think about the rankings while preparing (for our comeback) so it really is a great honor. We were worried since we’re doing a concept that was stronger than the ones we’ve done before but it’s a relief that the people liked it which makes us feel happy. It also gave us the courage to ‘do something new again next time’.
