Summary and English Translation of Blackpink Lisa interview in Nicola Magazine
Dance & Sing
Lisa: I find a genre that suits me and just practice it many times.When I was a student I went to school (maybe for dance or sing) and practice 5～6hours. I love and listen to black music and I got influenced by Rihanna a lot
Question: How did you learn Thai/Eng/Kor?
Lisa: Since I was a kid my father always speaks in English and I also learned it through watching foreign dramas so I’m thankful I can speak English. For Korean I studied it when I was a trainee, right now I’m trying to learn Japanese and my favorite word is “doki doki” because the sound of it is cute
Question: How do you keep your style?
Lisa: Exercise! I do a lot of running machine and squats while my trainer looks after me. For food, eating rice is a must for me so I always keep in mind to exercise. I also love to eat bread, pasta and sweets that’s why exercise is a must!
Question: How do you keep your hair healthy?
Lisa: I dye my hair but it seems the color didn’t fade away…. I think my hair is not that damage? But I have a very weak scalp so I make sure to take care of it after putting shampoo. The important thing is hair treatment! If ever I have time I always go to the salon and ask the staff to apply it
Question: Do you have your own fashion rules?
Lisa: I want my legs to look nice as it is so I try to avoid wearing white pants. I don’t also think about branded clothes that much, if I like the clothes I will buy it. I do shopping a lot in Korea but I also use America’s online shopping frequently!
Question: When you’re tired what will you do to refresh yourself?
Lisa: I’ll watch animes. Especially disney/pixar’s latest “remember me” is my favorite, whenever I watch it I feel relaxed.
Question: What was your fashion and hairstyle during high school?
Lisa: I had a short hair and my fashion, everything about it was boyish. When I was in junior high school i was watching a Korean drama and the main act had a short hair and I got inspired by it. That time, maybe I was popular among the girls. Just kidding
Question: What subject did you like and hate?
Lisa: My favorite was English and Science. I hate Math and I’m not that good at it so I took some private lessons to overcome it. I think my school grades overall wasn’t that bad.
Question: What would you do if you feel nervous during concerts?
Lisa: I’ll empty my head and take a deep breath and I’ll feel relaxed. Even now, I still get nervous before the concert and my palms also sweat sometimes. When you feel nervous, just don’t think about anything
Question: what is the part of you that you think you won’t lose to the other members? Lisa: I’m the only Thai among my members so I just let my foreign feelings out. On looks, I think my strong points is my eyes and lips…? But this is too embarrassing to say this on my own
