BLACKPINK Lisa Opens Up About the Challenges She Faced as a Foreign Trainee
On September 11, the LALISA songstress recently sat down for an interview with fellow Thai, WOODY, for the 'WOODY Show," where Lisa talked about numerous things such as her album, her "L" family, and more. In particular, Lisa recalled the time when she was a foreign trainee at YG Entertainment.
Lisa first auditioned for the label back in 2010, and later became YG Entertainment's first foreign trainee in 2011. Being the first foreign trainee, it can be intimidating due to the language barriers and learning how to take care of oneself.
"Everything was so new to me. And then there was that moment when my mom and dad told me they're leaving. And I said, 'You guys are leaving? Am I not going with you?' My mom said 'Nope! You're staying here for three months,'" said Lisa.
Being left alone in a foreign country alone at a young age, Lisa adjusted a year later. She added that the most challenging part during her trainee years was having to make her own decisions and manage her own finances.

"I've never done anything like that before. And I'm a mama's girl and sometimes when I feel tired, I just wanna hug my mom, but I couldn't," said Lisa.
BLACKPINK Lisa added, "And the language barrier, it was tough because I couldn't communicate."
Years later, Lisa became fluent in Korean and made her debut as a member of BLACKPINK, becoming one of the most successful K-Pop groups around the world.
