BLACKPINK is currently gearing up for the release of their highly-awaited first studio album titled BLACKPINK - The Album. It's been four years in the making and finally, the popular South Korean girl group's hard work is paying off with the album dropping soon. While conversing about the upcoming album during their GRAMMY.com interview, Jennie, Rosé, Lisa and Jisoo were asked about the kind of responsibility they personally have towards K-pop's global expansion as they're some of the people spearheading it.

"It's amazing that K-pop is spreading around the world as a culture in itself. There are a lot of other K-pop artists out there who are trying to put out their music right now, and we are really grateful that we get to step in and be a part of that," Rosé confessed. Taking over the reins, Jennie added that since they get so many amazing opportunities and records owing to people who are interested in watching K-pop right now, they would like to take the responsibility and are fully committed to the work.

Moreover, Jennie continued that she wants BLACKPINK to be proud when they look back on their history when they grow old which elicits a laugh from Rosé. Jennie stated that she wants BLACKPINK to be proud of themselves while not wanting to let themselves down. Hence, the member put extra time and effort into every single thing they put out which is the reason why it takes a bit of time for them.

"We really want to perfect the quality of the stuff we put out, so we can be represented to the world as a K-pop group," Jennie added. As a concluding note, Rosé felt that it was amazing how things were going and while it's a big responsibility, it's also a good responsibility that BLACKPINK has.

BLACKPINK PAVED DA WAYYYY

Anonymous 6 months ago

so im just gonna give my opinion on this. no hate to blackpink or bts. I think that bts did not pave the way. I think 2nd gen paved the way, bts and bp just walked on the path. bts just got super lucky, they blew up with their song bs&t. and more n more people started getting into them. then in 2017 or sum shit they won some billboard award randomly and they blewwww up. after bts realised how popular they were getting, they became very clever and decided to do something they knew that ppl would appreciate them for, the love yourself campaign. personally I think they did it bc they knew they would blow up with this message, not bc they actually cared lmao. so yes bts are extremely popular bc they are lucky and clever, I am fed up of armys givning me this bs of they write meaningful shit nahh its bc they know how to captivate ppl and say the right stuff. I can bet they only did love yourself coz they knew ppl would like it. if we are being honest, if bts wouldn't have blown up, another kpop group would've anyways: twice, rv, blackpink, got7, itzy there are so so so many groups that are way better than bts in general, but bts gets all the hype. im not against bts im just sayin the truth every one wont admit lol. bts are talented yes, but there are much more talented groups out there that deserve more recognition but cant bc bts takin all the attention lmao. also btw don't give me any of that love yourself mental health bs bc loadssss of groups tak abt this shit. and they are

Firstly you r no one to judge them. Their music has always been the the best and still is. Not debuting under a very popular company they have faced enormous hardships so please think before you press the keys. U don't know about their struggle so it's easy for u to speak such things. If you don't wish to stan u r not welcomed but please don't hate coz they have had enough let them have some peace. And u say armies r toxic please read out ur comment I could have written something similar but I didn't so now who sounds toxic and who sucks can be seen clearly.

They paved their own way, it's kpop we're talking about psycho, doesn't mean that one grp brings 2-3 fans a week and another brings a billion fans a week to Hallyu culture of music that one is less better than another! In fact, there r many great singers even nowadays who aren't recognized bcs they don't sing in English or r in a controversy, besides, u motherfuckers can fuck off cuz ur words r never gonna do any thing to what Blackpink is, Blackpink will keep on shining, so stop spreading ur bad breath here and there, depressed shits like u who don't have a fucking of their own and so r jealous of others and come to spread hate on the successful and good ones when u should literally once at least look at urself in the mirror before coming to talk about Blackpink. U might cringe at ur existence.

Anonymous 7 months ago

Yes, but they DID not pave the way for Blackpink, besides, Blackpink too has said that they know many artists r expanding kpop's global popularity and it's good to be a part of it for them, so kiddo, don't u know how to read?! Toxic kinder garden kids who don't even know how to understand a simple sentence, or is that toxicity is in ur blood that u can't but twist the meaning of peaches bcs ur depressed in ur life and have nothing else to do, so u want drama?! Huh?! Better visit a psychiatrist.

BTS PAVED THE WAY FOR KPOP

Anonymous 7 months ago

It's okay if you guys think that BTS paved the way , but it's just so disrespectful to comment this thing on an article where BLACKPINK is being praised . It just how immature some of you are. No hate to BTS tho

Anonymous 7 months ago

We as ARMYs mean no disrespect for the rest of the kpop industry. Everyone knows there were many kpop artists before BTS. For example we have Psy.. But the mass Globalization of KPOP since 2015 is due to BTS. Kpop wasn't all that famous or accepted in the Western Market, but now it is. And that's 90% due to BTS. Stop calling ARMY toxic for pointing out the truth that yall don't want to hear. We're not saying the other artists aren't awesome at all, we're just saying BTS made room so that their awesomeness could reach global audiences.

In ur dreams, k? Cuz Blackpink paved their OWN way, and r ur oppas BP's servants who work for them and will bring them their popularity? No rt? Then why spreading ur shit depression everywhere, huh? Hating on others doesn't mean that ur oppas will acknowledge ur existence! They don't even know ur fcking name! Besides, BTS would be ashamed if they were to know they've depressed fans like u. Shit on u, one day U'll realise that u have lost a great talent. U hates r no better than those murderer haters who killed Sulli with hate, Can u even call ur shit face a human?!
