The things that BLACKPINK enjoy the most during promotions are the ‘new challenges’ and the ‘realization of their ideas’.

Lisa: We did a powerful concept for our first mini-album <SQUARE UP>  which we haven’t done before. BLACKPINK is a group that continues to try out different things.

Jisoo: We’ve shared a lot of our ideas for this album because we really wanted our colors to stand out more. There’s no knowing how much we’ve contemplated even on the color of our album’s jacket alone. We made sure it’s what we all wanted and our opinions were clear.

Jennie: In the DDU-DU DDU-DU music video, I appeared wearing a rainbow-colored dress and a crown. I pitched in that idea and selected the headpiece myself.

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’.
