On May 16, BABYMONSTER appeared for an interview with Teen Vogue, spilling the beans on their journey and future dreams as K-pop idols. When asked about their inspirations in the industry, many members credited their predecessor BLACKPINK for paving the way.

Thai-born members Chiquita and Pharita expressed gratitude towards Lisa, whom they consider their idol. Especially, Pharita revealed that for her audition she performed BLAKCPINK’s How You Like That, because she looked up to the group.

The talented duo further stated that, after arriving in South Korea Lisa became like their sister and mother at the same time. The BLACKPINK rapper helped them with major advice, one of them being, “No matter if you are at the center or not, you can always shine wherever you are.”

Pharita further revealed that Lisa is a massive support system for them and their bond goes beyond advice as they often spend time together as well. Previously, it was revealed that Chiquita and Pharita both thanked the MONEY singer with heart-touching handwritten notes.

The BABYMONSTER members further said that they learned a lot from BLACKPINK’s live stages. The members attended their seniors’ concerts in Korea and observed how they spread their positive energy among the crowd by making ad-libs and hyping them up.
