WHO IS BLACKPINK?
Blackpink is a South Korean girl group that has been gaining popularity since its debut. Though the first member joined YG Entertainment as a trainee in 2010, it wasn’t until 2016 when they released “Square One”.

The four members of this group are Jisoo, Jennie, Lisa, and Rosé.
Jennie (24) – The first member of the girl group to be signed on as a trainee and confirmed by management, she was only 14.
Lisa (23) – She is a Thai rapper and the second trainee at YG Entertainment in 2011.
Jisoo (25) – She started out as a trainee before landing her spot in the band the same year as Lisa.
Rosé (23) – The final member of the team, signing on as a trainee in 2012.
The trainee program is designed for young entertainers who want to become K-pop stars. The lessons include singing, dancing, and acting tutorials.
WHO IS THE LEADER OF BLACKPINK?
Despite not having an *official* leader, fans have given Jisoo the title of unofficial Blackpink’s “leader”—likely because she is the oldest.
