Jennie remembers the beginnings of BLACKPINK
The main ELLE US article talked about the idols, their style and their music, it also featured a part where Jennie was walking down memory lane and remembered seeing Lisa, Jisoo and Rosé join the band.
The singer, who studied in New Zealand, was the first member to join BLACKPINK. She was joined by Lisa, whose dance she compared to a robot. “She memorized everything in seconds,” Jennie said.
Lisa chimed in to add that her mother said she always sang and danced as a child while pretending to hold a microphone.
About Jisoo, Jennie said that the K-drama singer and actress was eager to learn (dances, songs, etc.) everything that motivated her as well. Rosé completed the group and, in Jennie’s words, gave BLACKPINK, “the meaning of what music was supposed to do.”
Since Rosé was born and raised in Australia, the singer said Jennie helped her adjust to cultural differences upon her arrival in South Korea.
Jennie also talked about the girls’ days during training leading up to her official debut as BLACKPINK. According to the idol, after their training, the members would go home, order food, and talk about how “scary” their teachers were.
“And just like the kids at school become friends, we just got along. It was so easy, we really didn’t have to try,” Jennie said.
Jisoo also talked about the love the band receives from BLINKS. She said that their fans move them. “We feel your sadness and happiness. We are deeply connected,” she said.
