Coming from one of the top entertainment agencies in South Korea—Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa told NYLON that they are glad to be compared to labelmate 2NE1. But of course, they are hoping to establish their own unique color with their music.

Blackpink is YG Entertainment’s newest girl group that debuted after seven years of 2NE1’s long-lasting fame. The members shared about their feelings prior and after debuting. Each of the girls had to spend four to six years being a trainee in YG Entertainment in order to secure a spot in the group.

To Rosé especially, who noted that it was quite emotional when she finally stood on Blackpink’s first stage. She explained further, “It took us quite a long time to actually debut. The process was long just like our overall training period. I really felt like this was the start, just right after our onstage debut!”
