VIDEO: BLACKPINK Member LISA Is Going SOLO on YouTube
This K-Pop girl group member is going rogue! Are these early signs the group will split?
One member of the chart-topping K-Pop group, BlackPink is breaking out and getting her own YouTube channel.
BLΛƆKPIИK, is a South Korean girl group formed by YG Entertainment, that has 4 members Jisoo, Jennie, Lisa, and Rosé. And while Jennie has been making headlines lately for her upcoming solo album, it’s Lisa that is getting her very own YouTube channel.
The channel, named Lili Film was announced on Lisa’s instagram and supported by co-BlackPink Member Jisoo. The first video uploaded on the page features Lisa and Jisoo walking around Tokyo. The girls spend the day in the shopping, sightseeing and eating Japanese snacks, while BLACKPINK’s song See U Later plays in the background. While Jisoo seems supportive, it doesn’t look like the group’s parent company, YG entertainment or anyone else in the group has come out in support publicly.
Rather the company has been heavily pushing Jennie’s solo song. Which begs the question… are these early signs of the group disbanding?
Black Pink is the highest-charting female K-pop act on Billboard Hot 100, recently branching out to collaborate with international star, Dua Lipa.
The group has been performing together for 2 years and their YouTube counts over 13 million subscribers. The members have diverse backgrounds and distinct personalities. Lisa, is the youngest member of the group, signing with YG Entertainment as a trainee when she was just 14 years old.
She was born in Thailand and speaks 4 languages- Thai, Korean, English and Japanese. Fans call her the “Thailand Princess” and she’s known to her girl group members as “oppa”, which is a pet name for “big brother’
Lisa recently joined the cast of Real Men, which is a South Korean variety show featuring 8 celebrities as they experience life in the military, which is a requirement for all Korean men for two years. Lisa serves as Blackpink’s main rapper and dancer and has not attempted to release any solo projects until now.
Fans are curious to see where this new solo youtube channel takes Lisa. Since it’s really no surprise that all good bands, eventually fall apart.
