The girls of BLACKPINK had several stages of preparation before their debut and that included their old name. Rosé, Lisa, Jisoo, and Jennie trained for a long time to become K-Pop idols and become a part of BLACKPINK, but they also underwent changes in the group’s project.
When YG Entertainment announced plans to debut a new girl group, the excitement of K-Pop fans instantly increased, as the company had not worked in a girl group since the surprising success of 2NE1, so BLACKPINK began to chart your way to the stages.
The idols trained for several years to strengthen their singing, dancing, stage presence, and some of them even in the Korean language, but they were also part of some changes by the company.
To begin with, BLACKPINK’s pre-debut name was PINKPUNK , it was thought to debut a girl group under this name and thus they began to work on a project that could lead them to debut within K-Pop.
BLACKPINK: WHAT WAS PINKPUNK?
Within YG Entertainment there were several talented trainees and all of them strived to stand out to become idols, however in the end it was Lisa, Jisoo, Rosé, and Jennie who would fulfill this dream under that company.
It is said that one of the plans of the company was to debut a group of five members, but it was also considered a female team of nine girls, can you imagine?
