Question (Q): About a year after your debut in Korea, you’re now debuting in Japan!! Please let us hear your thoughts right now.
Jisoo (JS): We’re very much looking forward to it!
Jennie (JN): We heard that our Japanese fans have been waiting earnestly, so we want to prepare to be able to show a good performance soon.
Rosé (RS): It’s our first overseas debut after our Korean debut, so we want to show more developed versions of ourselves. We’ve also prepared Japanese versions of our songs, so it would be great if everything went well.
Q: No one has debuted, much less held a showcase in the Budokan – you’re the first. What were your thoughts on hearing that?
JS: We thought, “Are they talking about us?” It was unbelievable.
RS: We were rea~lly surprised.
Lisa (LS): It was beyond imagination.
JN: We’ve done it in music festivals or with other artists before, but we’re very thankful to have the opportunity to perform in such a big venue as BLACKPINK alone.
