Jisoo told Rolling Stone, “I love to perform, but I don’t always enjoy being part of the spotlight. I think it’s different for the other members. They love the spotlight. And they feel energized by the people who come to see us and then get a bit depressed when the stage is over, and silence arrives. I’m a little different. When I’m on stage, I think about not making mistakes. Performing sometimes feels more like a test than something genuinely fun.”
However, for Lisa, this new journey marks the completion of the strength she obtained while overcoming internal struggles. Lisa said, “That whole year between ‘As If It’s Your Last’ and ‘Ddu-du Ddu-du’ was rough for me. I couldn’t sing. When I went to the studio to record, nothing came out. I cried. I felt like I was bringing the team down. Teddy pushed me hard: ‘You can’t? No. Try harder. Go back in there.’ Because of Teddy, I overcame that time.”
Moreover, the K-pop group has been widespread, gracing the Billboard charts since its launch. BLACKPINK has topped the Billboard Chart 200, hitting the top 2 spots. While on the Billboard Hot 100, their song collaborated with Lady Gaga, ‘Sour Candy’ and Selena Gomez’s Ice Cream.’ Furthermore, on Sunday, BLACKPINK sent out a special message to their fans in celebration of their sixth anniversary.
