BLACKPINK UPDATE – November 14, 2019 KST
BLACKPINK has been recognized as rising influential stars by TIME magazine for making a huge impact in the western sphere as the group has got listed into TIME 100 NEXT 2019 in ‘Phenoms’ category.
BLACKPINK’s star may still be rising in the U.S., but on YouTube, it reigns supreme: the foursome—a.k.a. Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa—has 31 million subscribers, more than any other music group in the world. This year, BLACKPINK also became the first K-pop girl group to perform at Coachella, heralding a new era of Korean acts stepping past language barriers to play global stages. BLACKPINK’s success has been powered in part by a devoted legion of digitally savvy fans—in this case, Blinks—who, among other things, helped its flashy “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” music video reach 1 billion streams. The group’s goal, they say, is to make music that helps listeners gain “confidence and boldness.” —Kat Moon
