ELLE: You’ve become <ELLE>’s muses and had a photoshoot with flowers. If you are going to gift someone flowers, what would it be?
Jisoo: I want to gift others my favorite (flower), Lily of the Valley.
Jennie: Yellow Hyacinth. It’s my birth flower (that represents my birthdate — January 16th).
Rosé: White Roses remind me of white chocolate. It lifts up your mood when you place it nearby so I would give them as gifts.
Lisa: Pink Roses as they give off both pure and lovely feeling.

[IG] Update with BLACKPINK for Marie Claire Korea March 2018 Issue
Q: The fans are probably most curious about how is everyone is doing.
JS: In comparison to when preparing hurriedly for a comeback, it’s obviously better when there are more relaxation times. Thus, we’ve been putting a lot of care to our health. We’re practicing as well as having our free time. I used to play games and like reading cartoons, but recently I am drawing everyday. I was surfing the internet and coincidentally I’ve found a drawing book that you can follow easily.
RS: You draw? I didn’t know!
JS: It’s my personal secret. I’m so bad at drawing that I draw in secret when people aren’t looking.
RS: For me, my mother came to Seoul so thanks to her, I’m concentrating on my health. When we start promotions, your stamina is very important, so recently I’ve even started doing PT (Personal Training) too.
Star Blooming Scene
Fresh and Pure. BLACKPINK’s Spring Day.
Q: It’s been past 1 year and a half since you debuted. If you add the 5 years as trainees, you have spent a lot of time together. Shall we start comfortably by praising each other on how good you guys stayed together until now?
JS: Jennie’s always…Can we answer that when each of us aren’t here? (laughs) Jennie always makes a colour that is BLACKPINK’s only, and she always thinks about it and acts for that colour to be 100% shown.
JN: Ah, thank you. Rosé hasn’t lost her original intention since her trainee days and she’s always doing her best. With that attitude, she gives good motivation to the team.
RS: With Lisa as our maknae, also as a friend, she’s a person who always gives happy vibes. She knows how to comfort others, and she’s a kid that gives strength.
LS: [I’m embarrassed so] I can’t listen to this.
JS: I’m sorry. We rarely do this. I think I can sum it up. Lisa is a human vitamin!
LS: Jisoo unnie has a leadership that can only come from the oldest unnie. She would say, ‘Guys, let’s do this, do this’ and she gives strength to each person.
