Blackpink’s success journey is no more new. The members of the group – Jisoo, Lisa, Jennie, and Rose often make headlines and that’s not much of a surprise to the Blinks. Concerning Jisoo, she is back as an actress, as she is set to start filming the zombie project – Influenza. On the other hand, Lisa topped searches on Weibo, despite her cabaret performance which previously led to a series of backlashes.
Keeping the negativity aside, the good part is- Blackpink never fails to deliver their best and achieve accordingly. The single “Kill This Love” was released in April 2019. As the name of the extended play suggests, the song is all about ending a toxic relationship.
Some of Blackpink’s other notable hit songs are – Pink Venom, How You Like That, Shut Down, BOOMBAYAH, Pretty Savage, Kiss and Makeup, and Sour Candy. Being a Blink, which is your favorite?
