LISA whose favorite Korean food is gamja-tang (spicy pork back-bone stew), JISOO who threw a microphone away while swinging her arm during a rehearsal, ROSÉ who was touched by fried chickens sent by DARA, and JENNIE who says “right now” (the interview) in a shaky voice when asked about what was the hardest time since BLACKPINK’s debut. The real BLACKPINK out of the veil of secrecy triggered fandom with their cute appeals, not just with the intense performances on the stage that trigger girl crush.
Interviewers were even curious about how these shy and tender-hearted girls could present such powerful and intense performances on the stage.
In the interview, BLACKPINK was not just the “monstrous rookie” that dominated stages with overwhelming charisma. On the surface, the girls are like charismatic “black”, but inside, they are like shy “pink”. Girl group BLACKPINK’s members in the interview, not on the stage, were cute shy girls who were even hesitant to speak about what it was like to come back.
